JONATHAN MITCHELL NEW TESTAMENT SAMPLE

PASSAGES AND VERSES

A Sample Passage from Hebrews 1:

 

1.  Long ago (or: In the old days), in many parts (or: fragments; divided portions; = bit by bit) and in much-traveled ways consisting of many turns and directions, God, having spoken to (or: by; in; with) the fathers - in (= through) the prophets -

2.  upon [the] last of these days spoke to us in a Son whom He placed (or: sets) [as; to be] Heir of all (or: One who receives all humanity as an allotment; or: heir of all things; or: One who received everything as his allotted inheritance) through Whom He also made the ages (or: formed and constructed the various designated periods of time which compose existence, as well as God's influence and activities).

3.  Who, being an effect of the radiance (or: an effulgence; a result of the outshining; a [light]-beam) from the Glory and Splendor, and an exact impress (or: exact likeness as from a stamp or a die; or: a carving) of His substructure (or: the substance standing under as a foundation; the underlying support of His outward form and properties) and continuously bearing (or: carrying; bringing) the whole (all things; everything and all existence) by the declaration which is His power (or: with the saying pertaining to His ability; in the spoken word of, and which has the character of and its source in, His power), making a cleansing of (or: ritual purification from) the failures (the misses of the target; the mistakes and errors; or: a clearing by pruning which pertains to the sins), seated Himself within [the] right part (or: in union with the receiving aspect, honored position and place of power) of the Greatness resident within high places.

 

4.  Being born so much stronger and better (or: more excellent) than agents (or: messengers; or: folks who had a message), He has inherited (acquired by lot) a so much different name (= designation) which has been carried through the midst, beside them.

5.  For you see, to a certain one of the agents He once said (or: as an interrogative: to which one of the messengers did He once say?),

            "You are my son: I have given birth to you

            today!" [Ps. 110:1]                                

And again,

            "I will be to him for a Father, and he shall be

            to Me for a son."

            (or: "I will exist being in him, [proceeding] into

                  a Father, and he himself will exist being in 

            Me, [proceeding] into a son!)

                  [2 Sam. 7:14; 1 Chron. 17:13]

6.  Now again, when He brought the Firstborn into the habitable world He is saying,

            "And so, let all God's agents (or: people with

                  the message) give homage to Him (or:

                  worship and reverence Him; kiss toward and 

                  do obeisance to Him; = show respect and 

                  give honor to Him)." [Ps. 97:7]

7.  And then, on the one hand, to the agents (messengers) He is saying,

            "He is the One making His agents

                  (messengers) spirits (or: Breath-effects), and

            His public servants a flame of fire."

                  [Ps. 104:4]

            [comment: this is an example of Hebrew

                  parallelism - the second line being a            

                  restatement of the first, but in a different

                  figure; the figure is a reference both to the     

            priests, as "public servants," and to the

                  called-out community, figured as the

                  lampstand in the Tabernacle in Rev. 1:20,

                  and referencing Acts 2:3 - there being

                  "tongues as if of fire" burning on the lamps in

                  the one case, and upon the people in the

                  second case; theagents speak a message of

                  words that are "spirit," the effect of the

                  Breath]

8.  Yet, on the other hand, to the Son,

            "Your throne, O God, [is] into the age of the

            age, and the scepter of straightness, [is] a

            scepter of Your [p46, Aleph & B read: His]

            kingdom.

            (variant rendering: "God [is] Your throne, the

                  staff of uprightness, a staff of Your reign,

            unto the chief time period of the Age.)

9.          "You love fairness and equity in rightwised

            relationships within the Way pointed out (or:

                  justice; righteousness) and yet you hate

            lawlessness.  Because of this, God - your

            God - anointed you with olive oil of extreme

            joy, at the side of (or: = more than; = rather

                  than) your partners (or: associates; fellows).

                  [Ps. 45:6-7]

10.  And further,

            "O Lord [= Yahweh], down from beginnings

                  (or: in accord with ruling [principle]s), You 

            founded (or: laid the foundations of) the

            earth, and the works of Your hands are

            the heavens(or: skies; atmospheres).

11.           "They shall destroy themselves (or: ruin, or

                  lose, themselves) - but You continue  

            remaining throughout.

12.           "And all people, as a garment, shall be made

                  (or: grow) old.  Then like that which is            

            thrown around [as a cloak], You will roll (or:

                  wrap) them up as a garment, and so they will

            be made another (be altered; be changed; be

                  transformed), yet You are the same, and Your

            years will not fail." [Ps. 102:26-28]

 

From Hebrews 9:

 

27.  And now, according to as much as it is lying-away (or: laid away from; reserved) for (or: in; to) mankind (or: people) to die-away once, but after this an evaluation (a separation resulting in a distinction; a judging; a decision),

28.  so also, the Christ, being once borne (or: carried) close into the many (or: being offered once unto and for the many) to carry failures (errors; sins mistakes; deviations; misses of the target) back up again, will be made visible (will be seen) forth from out of the midst of the second [place (cf 9:3,7 & 10:9; [comment: = the holy of holies])] - apart from failure (apart from sin; apart from a sin offering; apart from error in attempting to hit the target) - in those (or: by those; to those; for those) habitually receiving (or: taking) from out of the midst of Him, [progressing] into a deliverance (or: [leading] into a rescue; with a view to health and wholeness; into the midst of salvation).
