New Depth to The Psalms
Reviewed in the United States on December 17, 2014
The Passion Translation is a new translation that includes the Aramaic, Greek and Hebrew underpinnings of each word and phrase in the Scripture. The Psalms are called Poetry on Fire, and it is an apt title. The Passion Translation uses more expressive language than the historical translations (NIV, ASV, etc.), or the NLT. It uses more imagery and analogies that provide new depth in contemplation and meditation. This language and use of imagery make it easier to hold on to the truths in the Scripture and to unpack the deeper levels in these words. There’s also more focus on one’s personal relationship with God and its implications. My review from the Passion Translation is from a devotional perspective for those who read the Bible to draw closer to God. From that perspective, it’s a must read!
