It has become obvious that this devotional reading and posting is tracking in two ways: 1) for those who want devotional thoughts about the text itself; 2) those who want an evaluation of the HCSB.
Thus, from now on I will divide the daily post into two parts. The first part will focus on devotional reading of the text itself. The second part will focus on specific issues related to HCSB as a devotional translation. This way, those who only want the devotional text side can read the first part and ignore the second.
Thanks, Richard B. for the question and the need for clarification.
