Exhaustion vs. Excitement
I think the key word for the past few days is: exhaustion. I still am, exhausted, what with 2 client meetings today but I better find something else to talk about!
How about my exegesis paper? I think I will be taking the one on James 4:4:
KJV: Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
NASB: You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
NIV: You adulterous people, don't you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.
Adulterers and adulteresses vs. adulteresses vs. adulterous people: this will get me into textual criticism, word study of adulteresses and, the study of the cultural and historical context of that time.
Oh! Isn’t it exciting?
