They will actively avoid reaching the conclusion that they were wrong about a core choice. Any time info like that comes up, they will invent a reason to dismiss it or just shut down before reaching that conclusion. Cognitive dissonance is a bitch.

The ESV translators attempted to stick to the English phrases found in the King James Bible while modernizing them

That's my point. The English parts will sound familiar for someone coming from KJV. That's usually what someone's thinking about asking a general question like, "what transition should I use?"

ESV is a good updated version based on translations derived from the KJV. The philosophy is to be as literal as possible.

For study, I like the NET. It comes with notes that explain why the translation team decided what it did and what the other options are. With the notes, you get more of a sense of how to translate the source text without learning Hebrew and Greek.

Less than a 30 minute drive. Langley is a little crowded. More space out in Loudoun County. What's the point in getting rich of clandestine work if you can't own a sizeable estate?

The press did figure it out! We've been taking about this for five years! The information's been out there for anyone who cared to look.

The younger generation grew up with a centralized and censored Internet. They don't know what they're missing.

The January 6 prosecutions worked. Truckers were worried the same would happen to them after an effective protest.
