Because one must know what the original words meant in the language in which Scripture was written. A knowledge of Hebrew and Greek soon shows that the translators do not always find an English word to express the exact sense of the original. God inspired the thoughts of the original writers, not the work oi the translators. And if you read a sense into Scripture which God did not intend at all, you no longer have God’s Word.
