A Fresh Translation of the Book of Daniel

יְשֹׁטְטוּ רַבִּים וְתִרְבֶּה הַדָּֽעַת׃

“Many will go quickly to and fro
and Knowledge will grow great”
Daniel 12:4

Through the Internet the study of the Biblical languages  Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek has rapidly come within the reach of most interested people, regardless of financial circumstances and credentials.

In addition, research time has been compressed and there are many online sources for obtaining the classic text books and media works relating to Biblical languages.

The question may come to mind “Why another translation, when there are so many out there already?”

Firstly, not all translations preserve the text close to the original languages. This is often due to the fact that copyrights cannot be obtained unless there are significant differences to other copyrighted material.

Moreover, it is sometimes difficult to render Hebrew or Aramaic precisely into English. Therefore it is suggested that it may be better to keep as close as possible to the original Hebrew and Aramaic and leave the interpretation and paraphrasing to the prayerful reader, preacher, scholar or theologian.
