Clay:

I do not view any translation more than I view you, as the opinion of people who may or may not be right. The advantage with you is that I can question you directly and maybe learn a thing or two.

I have my Bible that I read each day on my computer, but only in Greek and Hebrew. That’s how high a regard I have for translations.

Yours, Karl W. Randolph.
