    was it worth the re translating from the Biblical texts?

    I've been studying Corinthians of late.

    1 Corinthians 1:10–31 (NIV84 compared to NIV)
    [Base text NIV 2010]

    RED deleted / BOLD added
    GREEN UNDERLINE = software ads

    10 I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another [so] in what you say and that there [may] be no divisions among you [and], but that you [may] be perfectly united in mind and thought.
    11 My brothers and sisters, some from Chloe’s household have informed me that there are quarrels among you.
    12 What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas”; still another, “I follow Christ.”
    13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized [into] in the name of Paul?
    14 I [am thankful] thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius,
    15 so no one can say that you were baptized [into] in my name.
    16 (Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I don’t remember if I baptized anyone else.)
    17 For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with [words of human] wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.
    18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
    19 For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”
    20 Where is the wise [man] person? Where is the [scholar] teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
    21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.
    22 Jews demand [miraculous] signs and Greeks look for wisdom,
    23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles,
    24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
    25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than [man’s] human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than [man’s] human strength.
    26 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth.
    27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.
    28 [He] God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are,
    29 so that no one may boast before him.
    30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.
    31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let [him] the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
