The Third Edition of the Analytical-Literal Translation of the New Testament is now available is hardcopy and eBook formats. See Analytical-Literal Translation Preview for details.
As the name implies, ALT3 is a very literal translation. It also includes aids within the text to help readers better understand the text. ALT3 is the first Bible version to be based on the second edition of Byzantine Majority Greek Text. So it is a very unique version.
7“Now when you* pray, do not use vain repetitions [or, many meaningless words] like the Gentiles, for they suppose that they will be heard by their many words. 8Therefore, you* shall not be like them, for your* Father knows what [things] you* have need of before you* ask Him. 9Therefore, you*, be praying like this:
Our Father, the [One] in the heavens, let Your name be regarded as holy.
10Let Your kingdom come.
Let Your will be done, as in heaven, [so] also on the earth.
11Give us today the bread sufficient for the day.
12And forgive us our debts [fig., sins], in the same way as we also forgive our debtors [fig., the ones having sinned against us].
13And do not lead us into temptation [or, testing; or, trials], but deliver [or, spare] us from evil [or, from the evil [one]].
Because Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory into the ages! [fig., forever!] So be it! [Gr. Amen, and throughout NT]
Now available is the Analytical-Literal Translation of the New Testament: Devotional Version (ALTD). The main difference between ALTD and ALT3 is that in the ALTD the "analytical" information is footnoted, while in ALT3 such information is included within brackets within the text. That makes the information readily available, but it makes the text awkward to read and to quote from. By putting this information in footnotes, ALTD is a much easier to read and to quote from version.
