The HOLY BIBLE

in Khmer


* * *


This is from the Khmer Standard Version of the Holy Bible of the Bible Society of Cambodia (1997, 2005) which I have edited mainly with regards to spacing and punctuation for easier comprehension. Similar to the English Bible, I have put the words of the LORD Jesus in red ink (read its history).


(Click here for the highest authority to use and understanding rules of punctuation.)

Why Do We Have to Use Punctuation?  A History of Conventions

(See also A Language in Crisis.)


On occasions, I have corrected translation inaccuracy vis-a-vis the English New International Version.


And always, whenever វា (it) is used for a person, in particular for a child, it is replaced with គេ or គាត់ (s/he, him/her or they/them). The use of អញ (the derogatory "I" or "me", used inappropriately to connote authority, e.g. as by the father in the Parable of the Prodigal Son) is also replaced to ​ខ្ញុំ, unless the context calls for it (e.g. angry Old Testament king screaming at a servant).

The Holy Bible--the best-selling book in history with 25 MILLION Bibles sold annually, totaling between 2.5 to 6 BILLION--is a library or consolidation of 66 books, divided into the Old Testament (39 books, shared by both Judaism and Christianity) and the New Testament (27 books).  Both the OT and the NT form one single history, with the OT pointing to the coming Messiah of the NT.  The NT has the 4 Gospels recounting the "good news" and life of Jesus, the book of Acts recounting the spread of Christianity in the first century, letters by Jesus' disciples to believers spread across what is now the Mediterranean, Eastern Europe and Asia Minor -- new converts and old ones from the time of Jesus, persecuted for their faith in the Roman Empire, and the book of Revelation with vision of the end time (or, the time between Jesus Christ's 1st coming and His return--the time of our salvation--or, now!).

For those new to the Christian Bible, I'd recommend starting with one of the four Gospels of the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke or John.


Recently (early 2013), I discovered the sermons of my college pastor online. While at Georgetown University (1991-95), I, along with 10-20 other Georgetown friends, attended Fourth Presbyterian Church, a 10-15 minute drive from campus through the manicured estates of Northwest Washington, DC to the leafy suburban neighborhood of Bethesda in Maryland.


We drank in the deep wisdom of our college director, Chuck Jacob (now a senior pastor at Knox Presbyterian in Ann Arbor, MI) and of Dr. Rob Norris on Sunday mornings (and at times, classes he taught during the week days).


When I attended, the US Vice-President Dan Quayle and his family (and security detail), my Georgetown professor former UN Ambassador Jeanne Kirkpatrick, and many other well-known names from politics, academia and media, also attended. Dr. Norris' predecessor was then-chaplain of the US Senate, Dr. Richard Halverson.


All to say, if all of these accomplished people came Sunday after Sunday and benefited from Dr. Norris' sermons, maybe we too can find intellectual as well as spiritual nourishment from these talks?


It does not take long before one is taken in by the profundity and the humor -- not to mention, the accent! -- of Dr. Norris's exposition.
