I-New World Translation Iqondile Yini?

Ingxenye yokuqala ye-New World Translation yethulwa ngo-1950. Kusukela ngaleso sikhathi abanye bebekhuluma kuhle nge-New World Translation * kodwa abanye bebeyisola ngenxa yokuthi itshiyene lamanye amaBhayibhili. Okutshiwo ngabantu ngeBhayibhili leli kuphathelane lalokho okulandelayo.

  • Singalithemba. IBhayibhili leli lahunyutshwa kusetshenziswa imibhalo yakudala kanye lokuchwayisiswa okwenziwa yizikhwicamfundo. Kodwa i-King James Version ka-1611 yalotshwa kusetshenziswa imibhalo engaqondanga kangako futhi engayisiyo eyasetshenziswa kuhunyutshwa i-New World Translation.

  • Liyahambelana lemibhalo yakudala. Abahumutsha i-New World Translation baloba khona kanye okwakubhalwe emibhalweni yakuqala eyayiphefumulelwe nguNkulunkulu. (2 KuThimothi 3:16) AmaBhayibhili amanengi kawahambelani lemibhalo yakudala ngoba abahumutshi bakhona babelandela amasiko, ngokwesibonelo babelikhipha ibizo likaNkulunkulu befaka amabizo okuhlonipha afanana lathi Nkosi kumbe Nkulunkulu.

  • Ukuhumutsha ulandela indlela imibhalo yakudala eyayilotshwe ngayo. Abahumutsha i-New World Translation kabazange balifinqe iBhayibhili kodwa babelandela indlela imibhalo yakudala eyayilotshwe ngayo futhi lokhu babekwenza benanzelela ukuthi kabalobi izinto ezazingacina zingasazwakali. Ukufinqa iBhayibhili okwakusenziwa ngabanye abahumutshi kwenza ukuthi bacine sebesengezelela njalo sebetshiya leminye imicijo eqakathekileyo.

Umehluko okhona phakathi kwe-New World Translation lamanye amaBhayibhili

Amabhuku angekhoyo. Isonto yamaKatolika leye-Orthodox zisebenzisa iBhayibhili elilamabhuku okwengezelela okuthiwa yi-Apocrypha. Abafundisi abangamaJuda kabawamukeli amabhuku lawo. Lokhu kufanele sibili ngoba iBhayibhili lithi amaJuda yiwo “aphathiswe wona kanye amazwi kaNkulunkulu.” (KwabaseRoma 3:1, 2) I-New World Translation kayilawo amabhuku lawo.

Amavesi angekhoyo. Amanye amaBhayibhili afaka amavesi angekhoyo emibhalweni yakudala kodwa i-New World Translation kayiwafakanga amavesi anjalo. Kanti njalo amanye amaBhayibhili kawalawo amavesi lawo ngoba abahumutshi bakhona bathi ukwenza njalo kakuvumelani lemibhalo yakudala. *

Ikhuluma ngolimi olulula njalo oluzwisisekayo. AmaBhayibhili ahunyutshwe ibala ngebala enza ukuthi abantu bangazwisisi abayabe bekubala. AmaBhayibhili amanengi kuMathewu 5:3 athi “Babusisiwe abampofu emoyeni.” (English Standard Version; King James Version; New International Version) Abantu abanengi abakuzwisisi ukuthi amazwi athi “abampofu emoyeni” atshoni, sebeze becabanga ukuthi uJesu wayekhuluma ngokuthobeka kumbe ubuyanga. Kodwa uJesu wayekhuluma ngokuthi abantu abalandela isiqondiso sikaNkulunkulu bathola intokozo yeqiniso. Yikho i-New World Translation evesini leyo ithi “labo abananzelela ukuthi kumele bafunde ngoNkulunkulu.”​—UMathewu 5:3. *
