The primary purpose of The Lockman Foundation is to foster and promote the Holy Bible as the inspired and inerrant word of God through Christian, charitable, and educational activities.
The Lockman Foundation strictly adheres to the fourfold aim that guides all of its translation work:
These publications shall be true to the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek.
They shall be grammatically correct.
They shall be understandable.
They shall give the Lord Jesus Christ His proper place, the place which the Word gives Him; therefore, no work will ever be personalized.
Always true to these standards, The Lockman Foundation continues to translate and produce Bibles true to the original Word of God. The Amplified, and the NASB are available in multiple languages and yet always translated according to Lockman standards.
What are your standards, friend? Have you ever thought about it? Do you deviate in any way from your original plan, or worse, deviate from the plan of God?
