The Rooted Word
What is TRW?
TRW is the three-letter abbreviation for The Rooted Word like KJV is for King James Version or like NASB is for New American Standard Bible.
What Makes TRW So Different from Other Translations?
The Rooted Word translation is a literal one. We take into account the roots of the words and draw the meanings to the surface meaning to increase the impact of the message given by God in His Testimony. We do not use any figurative translations of words, unless the literal does not make any sense whatsoever in the context. That is extremely rare, though. We also are producing 3 versions of The Rooted Word. The first is the Precise Translation which leaves as much of the Greek intact in the English, including syntax (word order) where it makes sense in English. The second is the Common English translation which rewords the Precise Translation so it is readable and understandable by the average native speaker of English. The third is a new division of the chapters and verses in the Precise Translation. This last version is long over due in the Church. Many serious problems have arisen because of incorrect divisions at both the chapter and verse levels. These are 3 separate translations. You can use one or all of them.
