trial translation, or translating the trial: Numbers 5
Now I may be able to comment a little more transparently and more thoroughly on Numbers 5 and its Hellene translation. I've followed Jared Callaway's spirit today - "in Montaigne’ sense of a try, an experiment, an attempt that is never conclusive but always questioning" - and I've attempted a translation of "Numbers 5." Of course, I'll have to correct and update and revise and re-vision and all that. But it's a start. It's over at another blog of mine, and maybe it'll help with some ongoing dialogue about sexism in the scriptures - - and what wordplay translation does with that.
