NABRE Sneak Peek: Exodus 3
In union with this week's World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life, the newest sneak peek comes from Exodus 3 which details the call of Moses. To see this, you will need a Facebook account. One of the big changes from the original NAB is how it translated the Divine Name. In the old NAB, the translators went with "I am who am" while the NABRE translators went with the more standard "I am who I am". There are some more interesting changes, but perhaps I will save that for discussion in the comments. So go check out the new translation! One thing to note is that the NABRE translators have expanded the commentary/notes for this chapter of Exodus. Here are some links which will allow you to compare the NABRE's rendering with the RSV, NRSV, and the original NAB.
