◄ Romans 10:13 ►
"Zeisu pen Topa hi, ci-in mite kiangah genin, Pasian in sihna panin amah hingkiksak zo hi, ci-in na lungsim sung uhah na up taktak uhleh hotkhiatna na ngah ding uh hi."
“...But Joseph reported to his father some of the #bad THINGS HIS BROTHERS WERE DOING.” (Genesis 37:2, NLT)
NLT would translate; “Joseph report the WRONG DOING of his brothers.”
This translation suggests Joseph’s brothers the bad guys which are consistent with their behaviors against their brother; Joseph later in the story.” He looks more like being accountable to their father by reporting bad behaviors in the family.
However, other translations would use “Joseph made BAD REPORT about his brothers in which the translation could suggest Joseph the BAD ONE.
Is Joseph a bad guy after all? NOT at all! He exhibited his character later in the story.
The bottom line is to compare #translations to grasp the full intent & understanding of the text in context.
(Every Translation has its own focus & philosophy behind and therefore, others are not bad either).
