Item description for Modern Young's Literal Translation New Testament-OE by Robert Young & Allen Keith LeClaire...

In 1898, Robert Young finished his final edition of his Bible, now called the Young's Literal Translation of the Bible. Since that time, it has been considered the most literal, accurate Bible translation made. Young's Literal Translation never became a very popular Bible edition due to the fact that it used the same style langauge as the King James Version and that Mr. Young left a lot of the verses in the same word order as it was translated in. This left his edition difficult to read at times. We decided to take this very literal, accurate translation and modernize it. We have updated the langauge to modern English and have also modernized the sentence structure to what is used today. This was done to improve the readability of the translation. We have taken great pains to make sure that our modernizing did not change the meaning of any verses or passages. With the improved readability, we feel that this translation will become very popular and widely read. This Bible will shed new light on familiar verses. In order to show how the word "you" is being used, we have added a small "P" above the different versions of "you" that are being used in a plural way. We have added a small "S" about the singular usages. This will eliminate some of the confusion of changing from "thee's" and "thou's" to "you". We think that this will help all readers. We feel that our modernizing and our indications of plural and singular usages of the word "you" will so improve the readability of this translation, that it will gain in popularity and readership. Now the Young's Literal Translation is available in a very readable form that is just as accurate and literal as the original. The Modern Young's Literal Translation will allow and help more people get a better understanding of God's Word. The Modern Young's Literal Translation will be the best addition to every Christian's library.

Reviews - What do customers think about Modern Young's Literal Translation New Testament?

Modern Young's Literal Translation New Testament  Oct 6, 2007
I absolutely love this very literal translation of the Textus Receptus version (the same one used by the King James translators) of the New Testament. I believe it to be the most accurate representation of God's Word available in the English language. I can't wait until they finish editing and publish the Old Testament! I am hoping that they'll eventually make it all available in a leather bound edition.
 
Thought-provoking but needs more updating  Oct 4, 2007
I appreciate the desire to be as faithful as possible to the original Young's Literal Translation, but the modernized version still has too much King Jamesian language in my opinion. It is still a good resource and I'm reading a chapter in one of the Epistles, a Psalm and a Proverb every day. There is always something I read that provides a fresh perspective or insight - which we should expect from any faithful translation of the Word of God.
