So, do we suppose that the Hebrew Bible was not written in Greek; the Septuagint was provided for the ancient diaspora; then there's the Brit Hadassah, though its timing has some questions, to be sure. Also, the issues of Matthew not being written in either Greek or was it Aramaic, the lingua franca of that time as well as what did language Pontius Pilate speak to Yeshua; Aramaic, Greek, Latin: it is expected the Jewish rulers spoke Hebrew amongst themselves, but when they accused Yeshua to Pilate, what were they speaking? However after it is all said and done, what were the Egyptian Copts reading when translating it into their own tongue, or even in pre-Islamic Arabic?
But after it is all considered, since the WORD of the LORD belongs to the LORD, what version does anyone think He is speaking when administering HIs will to the believing congregation.
To the original question, the Jewish Nation is the designated messenger of the eternal ages; so, yes, this Gentile will pursue the WORD of the LORD in its original and subsequently designated Jewish context.
