    I have repeatedly said that I appreciate the HCSB . It is a very good Bible version . I like the TNIV even better . I will just cite some comparisons where the wording seemed a bit different between the two . Every example does not "prove" that the TNIV is superior . These are two versions I really like . It is just time to look at some phrases side-by-side .

    I will cite info from the NET Bible at times : Heb._____

    The HCSB will be at the top and the TNIV will be below .

    1:6__ no spot is uninjured
    there is no soundness
    Heb. = there is not in it health

    3:12 __ they confuse the direction of your paths
    they turn you from the path
    Heb. = and the way of your paths they confuse

    6:10 __ Dull the minds of the people

    to deprive the poor of their rights ... making widows their prey

    10:13 __ I subjugated the inhabitants
    I subdued their kings
    Heb. = and I brought down , like a strong one , ones sitting ... [ the NET note went on to say that this refers to those who sit on thrones .

    10:16 __ will inflict an emaciating disease on the well-fed of Assyria

    23:9 __ to desecrate all its glorious beauty
    to bring down her pride in all her splendor
    Heb.= the pride of all the beauty

    28:15 __ We have cut a deal with death
    We have entered into a covenant with death

    28:21 __ His disturbing task
    his alien task
    The NET notes say :His peculiar work ,or strange task because He must deal with them the way He treated their enemies in the past .

    29:21 __ those who , with [ their ] speech , accuse a person of wrongdoing , who set a trap at the gate for the mediator
    those who with a word make someone out to be guilty , who ensnare the defender in court

    Heb.= and deprive by emptiness the innocent
