Do Try Reading Several Bibles Side By Side

By D.K.Milgrim-Heath©2010

Do try reading several bibles side by side-

Every translation differs that's very interesting yet so wide.

Each biblical scholar sees has his translation a certain way-

You as the reader might not agree on a particular translated say.

Translations of Hebrew, Aramaic,Arabic and Greek can be about around tossed-

Because the full meaning for modern times can be lost.

All OT Jewish,NT Christan and Islamic publications do differ (to a point) each from from another one-

As I see that side by side from words how that's really done.

Noticing this also as your Koran has this problem too-

What's good enough translation for one might not be good enough for you.

As for myself I study with several bible translations when I go to pray-

As their meanings are somewhat different but still beautiful anyway!

From the original Hebrew are OT bibles recorded are-

Do differ with gaps in modern translations by far.

Or even the Greek, etc to English translations aren't always there-

So it's very interesting! Yes try studying with 3 bibles side by side with care!

Have you ever wondered why each main world religion doesn't totally satisfy?

Other offshoots or totally different religions worldwide have really sprung up by.

If humanity was truly happy with God's planned chosen book-

War would end, hatred could abolish that's one way to look.

Are not our human basic needs ones we all need to cherish?

Love, like and tolerate one another, not teach hatred or the world will perish.

I was always taught as a child love thy neighbor as thyself-

Is that not good for humanity's worldwide health?

Isn't that the basic tenets one's bible does teach?

For every commentator is that our aim we reach?

So many world religious bibles with those newer comments are they saying?

Must help us stop world hatred as a learning tool for how we're praying.

Do all of us understand or believe word for word what we read?

Have translators trouble finding proper linguistics that don't make modern sense-

By putting any word in any sentence/paragraph that make any religious scripture commence.

Each translation of one's religious bible hopefully does clarify-

The do's and don'ts of one religion more satisfactorily as time goes by!
