I was reading through the Proverbs this morning and simply started to laugh after reading 15:17 – “Better is a dish of vegetables where love is than a fattened ox served with hatred.”
I decided to rewrite the verse in a “Seth Translation ReMix” format:
“Obviously bbq is better than a vegetable meal, but if the grill master hates you it is better to eat the veges that your loving hippie friend cooked lest your bbq sauce be poisoned.”
After reading that, some may say that I should stay away from doing my own translation of the Bible. But I have found that paraphrasing the Bible (while keeping to the meaning of the text) can be a great way to help get the Word into me.
I’d be interested in seeing other people’s “remixed” version of this verse.
