A fresh translation of the entire Scriptures that consciously seeks to reveal the power and meaning of Hebrew and Greek words that can be watered-down in some of the other English translations.
The goal of the ONMB is to bring greater understanding of and appreciation for the power and authority given to Believers - a power in which we are all expected to walk. The ONMB also helps to bring to life the Jewish root of the Scriptures - many words previously translated according to tradition are changed to the literal. Hebrew is a very expressive language, so the ONMB brings out much of the power and sheer majesty that has commonly been omitted.
Ephesians 2:14 is the key text for this translation, exploring what it means for Jew and non-Jew to be united in Christ.
This is a general translation in modern English, so it is considered to be an entry-level Bible, albeit in some places the wording can be a little difficult compared to the "smoother" standard English translations. God's word can sometimes be uncomfortable!
Whilst via the Holy Spirit this should be a suitable entry-level Bible, backed as it is by a considerable body of footnotes and an extensive glossary, this really should be a "must-read" for the serious Bible student. It is an excellent comparator to the standard English versions. The Glossary is second to none!
