    In this thread I'd like to list some selected phrases where I will show an alternative reading from the footnotes of my 2004 NLTse. Sometimes three or more alternative readings are listed in the NLTse;I'll choose just one.I will not cite notes which state what the Greek has or what certain manuscripts contain.So remember that I'll usually only supply a phrase.I'll cover only the Epistles.

    1:4
    and he was designated to be the Son of God

    1:5
    Through Christ,God has given us the privilege and the grace as apostles

    1:18
    But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful,wicked people who,by their wickedness,prevent the truth from being known.

    2:29
    And a person with a changed heart receives praise from God,not from people.

    9:5
    May God,the one who rules over everything,be praised forever.Amen.

    12:11
