It's Nudansk: Today's Danish Scriptures catch on
“One day Malou came home and set a Bible on the kitchen table and said, ‘Grandma, I want to read the Bible, because I don’t know very much about it. That’s not so good, because I was just confirmed (in the Lutheran Church).’”
An updated version of the New Testament has already been published and released, along with the Psalms and several other Old Testament books.
PRAY that God will guide and direct this new translation effort, and that God’s truth will shine through.
PRAY that the lives of focus group volunteers will be changed as they soak up God’s Word, and that revival will result.
PRAY for the wisdom of the translation team, that they would remain faithful to the original texts as they updated them into the words Danes use today.
PRAY that God’s Word would spread in a new way throughout Denmark, from 14-year-olds and their grandmas, to schools and homes and beyond.
