(Pro 22:12 KJV) The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, and he overthroweth the words of the transgressor.
God must have a role in the ongoing process of learning. He will “preserve” (5341) “knowledge” (1847). I think this could be looked at as a promise concerning the integrity of our Bibles. Think of all the different hands over the years that have been involved in preserving and translating the Greek and Hebrew texts. If we do not believe that the HS has a constant hand in preserving the Word, we could have some real issues.
Christians believe that scripture is inspired, or “God breathed.” We believe that the original manuscripts were crafted by God and said exactly what He wanted them to say. The task of scholars and translators is to put into our native language the thoughts that originally came from God in Hebrew and Greek. I also believe that the preservation of the text has been overseen by God. All translators and translations are not inspired. Some are heretical. The point I want to make is that well trained, believing, spirit filled scholars are also guided by the Holy Spirit.
So? Find a solid translation and stick with it. Enjoy the paraphrases but don’t make them your standard fare. Trust the original. Have confidence in the translation. Anticipate how the Holy Spirit will teach.
