This is the finest English-language Bible yet produced. The translation’s own Preface tells the story of the tradition in which the Church of Scotland’s moderator hands a Bible to the new monarch in the British coronation service, saying, “This Book is the most valuable thing that this world affords. Here is Wisdom; this is the royal Law; these are the lively Oracles of God.” It is now very exciting to see this translation used in an actual “coronation service” of sorts.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. (2 Tim 3:16-17, ESV)
UPDATE: The new president is a “staunch member of the Christian faith”, and the language of Covenant is being used regarding his new term in office.
