J.I. Packer Discusses Worship (Ask the Translators #1 Answer 17)

To what extent was the translation of the ESV Bible one consciously assisted by prayer and the Holy Spirit? How conscious of his work in illuminating and guiding our understanding of God’s Word were you in working together on this translation?

Watch J.I. Packer respond (Windows Media format).

I may say, we did make worship basic to what we were doing and start each day with a reading of Scripture, a word or two of application, and prayer together. And we thought that important. We wanted the blessing of God on what we were doing, and we were sensitive not to follow a procedure which would, in fact, leave God out of what we were doing.

This answer comes from a new video that we plan to release soon.
