(Ɛks. 3:15; Sam 83:18; 148:13; Ayz. 42:8; 43:10; Jɔn 17:6, 26; Akt 15:14) Jiova Gɔd we gɛt di Baybul bin tɛl di wan dɛn we i yuz fɔ rayt am fɔ yuz in nem bɔku bɔku tɛm. (Rid Izikɛl 38:23, NW.)

7, 8. Wetin Jiova in nem min?

7 Tru Kristian dɛn no se i impɔtant fɔ ɔndastand di rial minin we Gɔd in nem gɛt.  Di apɛndiks na di New World Translation we dɛn pul insay 2013, tɔk bɔt nyu tin dɛn we gɛt fɔ du wit di minin we Gɔd in nem gɛt. Di Nyu Wɔl Baybul Transleshɔn Kɔmiti ɔndastand se di nem kɔmɔt frɔm wan Ibru vab ha·wah,’ we min “I De Mek Wetin I Want Bi.” * Wi buk ɛn magazin dɛn trade bin tɔk se dis minin we Gɔd in nem gɛt gri wit wetin de na Ɛksodɔs 3:14 (NW), we se: “A Go Bi Ɛnitin we A Want fɔ Bi.” Na dat mek di New World Translation we dɛn mek insay 1984 bin se di nem Jiova min I “de bi ɛnitin we in want fɔ bi so dat wetin i dɔn prɔmis go apin.” * Bɔt Apɛndiks A4 na di nyu Baybul we dɛn pul insay 2013 bin ɛksplen se: “Pan ɔl we wi go ɔndastand di nem Jiova dis kayn we, i nɔ jɔs tap to wetin in want fɔ bi.

10, 11. We dɛn bin de translet di New World Translation insay ɔda langwej dɛn, us prɔblɛm dɛn di transletɔ dɛn bin de gɛt?

10 Bɔku transleshɔn prɔblɛm dɛn dɔn de we dɛn de translet di Baybul insay difrɛn langwej dɛn. Fɔ ɛgzampul, trade trade di Inglish New World Translation bin fala sɔm Inglish Baybul dɛn fɔ yuz di Ibru wɔd “Shiol” na Ɛkliziastis 9:10 ɛn ɔda vas dɛn na di Baybul. Bɔku transletɔ dɛn we translet di Baybul insay ɔda langwej dɛn apat frɔm Inglish bin gɛt dis sem prɔblɛm. Bɔku pan di wan dɛn we bin de rid di Baybul we dɛn translet insay ɔda langwej dɛn nɔ bin sabi dis wɔd “Shiol.” I nɔ bin de na dɛn dikshɔnari ɛn sɔm pipul dɛn bin de tink se na wan patikyula ples gɛt da nem de.

11 Insay sɔm langwej dɛn, dɛn bin translet di Ibru wɔd nɛʹfɛsh ɛn di Grik wɔd si·kiʹ as “sol” na ɔl di say dɛn we dɛn de na di Baybul. Dis bin mek sɔm pipul dɛn kɔnfyus. Wetin bin mek dɛn kɔnfyus? Na bikɔs insay dɛn langwej dɛn de, di wɔd “sol” min gost ɔ sɔntin we de kɔmɔt insay  mɔtalman we i day. Dis go mek pipul dɛn tink di rɔng we fɔ se di “sol” na sɔntin lɛk gost ɛn nɔto mɔtalman insɛf sɛf. Insay di apɛndiks na di New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures—With References, dɛn bin dɔn sho wetin di wɔd “sol” min. So dɛn tɛl transletɔ dɛn fɔ translet di wɔd “sol” bay wetin i min na di vas. Fɔ tru, i bin impɔtant fɔ mek pipul dɛn ɔndastand wetin di vas min as dɛn rid am so, ɛn bɔku tɛm, dɛn bin de ɛksplen mɔ bɔt di vas na di futnot dɛn.

PIPUL DƐN RILI GLADI FƆ DI BAYBUL

13. Aw pipul dɛn fil bɔt di Baybul we dɛn pul insay 2013?

13 Aw pipul dɛn fil bɔt dis nyu New World Translation we de insay Inglish? Bɔku brɔda ɛn sista dɛn dɔn sɛn lɛta dɛn na Jiova Witnɛs dɛn ɛdkwata na Bruklin fɔ sho aw dɛn gladi fɔ dis nyu Baybul.

14, 15. Aw pipul dɛn fil bɔt di nyu New World Translation we de insay ɔda langwej dɛn apat frɔm Inglish?

 14 Nɔto di nyu Inglish New World Translation nɔmɔ pipul dɛn lɛk. Wan big man we kɔmɔt na wan tɔŋ we nem Sofia, insay Bɔlgeria, bin tɔk bɔt di Baybul we dɛn bin pul insay di Bɔlgerian langwej. I bin se: “I dɔn te we a de rid di Baybul, bɔt a nɔ wande si Baybul we izi fɔ ɔndastand ɛn we de tɔch mi at pas dis wan.” Semweso, we wan Albenian sista gɛt di wan ol New World Translation insay Albenian, i bin tɔk se: “Gɔd in Wɔd rili fayn we yu de yɛri am insay Albenian! Na big big ɔnɔ wi gɛt fɔ lɛ Jiova tɔk to wi insay wi yon langwej!”

15 Baybul dɛn dia na bɔku kɔntri dɛn ɛn dɛn kin at fɔ si, so na big big blɛsin fɔ gɛt Baybul. Wan ripɔt frɔm Ruwanda se: “Fɔ lɔng tɛm, bɔku pipul dɛn we di brɔda dɛn bin de stɔdi wit nɔ bin de go bifo pan Gɔd biznɛs bikɔs dɛn nɔ bin gɛt Baybul.
