Dr. Shaw:
The Living God has been progressively increasing our knowledge for centuries.
Your remarks were correct about "dynamic equivalence"; also "thought for thought" is blasphemy against the Living Word of God.
In 1997, God revealed, "The Seven Spirits of God" to men of earth; and it is all over the web.
"In beginning [plural] Gods (MYHLA) creating (PTCP>) of the heavens and of the earth" - Gen 1.1.
The Jews had five of ten words wrong.
