The Why and How to Test Translations

Zech 9 9

This is Why We Need to Test Our Translations:

The above verse is a fulfilled prophesy quoted in Matthew 21:5.  Although it is recognizable, you will notice a small textual variation can make a big difference.

“This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: “Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘See, your King comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.” Matthew 21:5

The original Hebrew word, Tzeddiq means:  Righteous, Blameless.

The original Hebrew word Yasha means:  Salvation, Deliverance and Victory.

The original Hebrew word Anav means: Afflicted, Humble, Oppressed, Poor.

Notice all three words are translated into English as Gentle?

This is How We Test Our Translations To The Original Hebrew:

To gain better understanding of the original word meanings it is necessary to search an updated Lexicon, such as this one at http://biblehub.com/lexicon/zechariah/9-9.h

How blessed is the man who has made Yahovah his trust, And has not turned to the proud nor to those who lapse into falsehood. Psalm 40:4

The Test of Those Who Will Inherit Life in The Kingdom.

Parable of the King ( Judge Acts 10:42) and His Righteous Judgement  (Matthew 25:31-40)

Like a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, all people will stand before The King on Judgement Day, awaiting the revealing, as He places the sheep on His right and the goats on His left.

Then the King will say to those on His right, inherit what has been prepared in the Kingdom, from the foundation of the world.

Because, when I was hungry you gave Me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you took Me in, I was poorly clothed and you clothed Me, I was sick and you looked after Me, I was imprisoned and you came to Me.

Then the righteous (those who did right) will respond,

Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You something to drink?  When did we see You as a stranger and take you in, poorly clothed and cloth You?  When did we see You sick or imprisoned and visit You?

And the King will reply,

“In Truth I say to you, whatever you did for one of the least of these you did it for Me.”

For further study of our Creator’s Unchanging Truth, and the reality that this temporary life, He has given each one of us, is a revealing test, see: Romans 8:19; Matthew 16:26;  James 1:27;  James 2:15James 2:16Isaiah 58:7Ezekiel 18:7Ezekiel 18:16Job 24:4Psalm 112:9Proverbs 25:21Proverbs 28:27Proverbs 14:31;  Proverbs 21:13Job 31:19,20Deuteronomy 15:7.
