Translation Oversight Committee meetings begin today, May 31. I have been praying for these meetings. Will you, also, honor the request for prayer from the ESV team, as posted on the ESV Bible blog
Please be in prayer for the ESV Translation Oversight Committee (TOC), which will be meeting May 31 - June 4, 2005, to consider suggestions that have been made concerning the ESV text. The potential revisions are mostly minor punctuation and style issues.
At this time, the agenda for the meeting is full with items that have been under consideration over the past three years.
We have been collecting feedback ever since the ESV was first published in October 2001, and the TOC will be working through much of this feedback at the meeting. We appreciate everyone who has taken the time to write to us.
Pray for spiritual unity for the committee. Pray for wisdom as they consider revision suggestions. Pray that they will set a good course for improving the ESV without losing the qualities which have endeared this translation to its users. Above all, pray that the Lord will receive glory from the committee's deliberations.
