Please be in prayer for the ESV Translation Oversight Committee (TOC), which will be meeting May 31 – June 4, 2005, to consider suggestions that have been made concerning the ESV text. The potential revisions are mostly minor punctuation and style issues.
At this time, the agenda for the meeting is full with items that have been under consideration over the past three years.
We have been collecting feedback ever since the ESV was first published in October 2001, and the TOC will be working through much of this feedback at the meeting. We appreciate everyone who has taken the time to write to us.
You’re always welcome to submit suggestions concerning the ESV text; however, any suggestions we’ve received recently won’t be considered at the coming meeting unless they’re already on the agenda. We do read every suggestion we receive.
We apologize for any miscommunication that led anyone to believe we were still accepting suggestions for the upcoming meeting.
Wayne Leman first mentioned the TOC meeting yesterday. If you’re interested in a lively debate over some of the translation choices the TOC has made, please head over to his site.
Thank you for praying for the TOC members during this time as they seek the Lord’s leading, with humility and reverence before God’s holy Word, and for His glory alone.
