    I will give a smattering of alternative footnote renderings in the NLTse version which are not in the actual text now . In the future some footnote renderings may indeed be moved to the text while the current text wording will be relagated to the footnotes . It's happened with the changeover in the NIV to TNIV on a limited scale .
    I won't give examples where the Greek text equivalents are in the FT's . And sometimes as many as 3 or more different alternatives are listed . I'll just give one in my sampling for you all .

    I'll start with the book of Romans . I will not be exhaustive , just some examples will be cited . The alternative will be at the top and the actual text wording will be below . See what you think is superior . Which one is more literal ? ( And that would necessarily be the superior rendering . ) .

    1:4a and was designated
    and he was shown to be

    1:4b by the Spirit of holiness
    by the power of the Holy Spirit

    1:5 the grace
    and authority

    1:9 in my spirit
    all my heart

    1:18 who , by their wickedness , prevent the truth from being known
    who suppress the truth by their wickedness

    2:29 receives praise
    seeks praise

    8:10 your spirit is alive
    the Spirit gives you life

    8:24 we don't need to wait for it
    we don't need to hope for it

    9:5 May God , the one who rules over everything be praised forever . Amen .
    he is God , the one who rules over everything and is worthy of eternal praise ! Amen .

    10:4 For Christ is the end of the law
    For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given

    12:16 This is your reasonable service
    This is truly the way to worship him

    12:3a Because of the grace
    Because of the privilege and authority

    12:3b by the standard of our God-given faith
    measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us

    12:11 but serve the Lord with a zealous spirit
    and serve the Lord enthusiastically

    Okay , How about Ephesians ?

    1:11 we have become God's inheritance
    we have received an inheritance from God

    1:13 He put His seal on you
    He identified you as His own

    1:17 to give you the Spirit of wisdom
    to give you spiritual wisdom

    1:18 called , and the rich and glorious inheritance he has given to his holy people
    called , his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance

    3:6 because they are united with Christ
    because they belong to Christ

    3:12 Because of Christ's faithfulness
    Because of Christ and our faith in him

    3:15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name
    the Creator of everything in heaven and earth

    4:9 to the lowest parts of the earth
    to our lowly world

    6:1 Children , obey your parents who belong to the Lord
    obey your parents who belong to the Lord

    6:15 For shoes , put on the readiness to preach the Good News of peace with God
    For shoes , put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you'll be fully prepared

    Rippon: //1 PETER

    2:12 on the day of visitation
    when he judges the world//

    Thank you.
    Where were you when that was on the Sunday School
    lesson three weeks ago?

    Frequently more than one version is helpful
    to help us Sunday School teachers figure out what
    it is that the Bible is trying to tell us and our
    Sunday School Students. I teach half a dozen
    men 45-59.

    Brother Ed , I'd qualify as one of your SS students . I'm in the age range .

    Yeah , the phrase "day of visitation" wouldn't mean much to many readers . It sounds quite benign . But the phrase " judges the world " brings it on home .
