The Bible Translation
Psalm 100 PaperThe assignment will be to write a 4-6 page double spaced paper tracing the evolution of the four translations of Psalm 100, as given in the handout. (3 is the minimum, 5 is the maximum) You will discuss these four topics in your paper (all four):1. Discuss the Meter (free verse vs. long meter, describe the evolution of Psalm 100 into long meter)2. Discuss the Text (compare and contrast the Hebrew bible translation vs the original English translation, poetic English translation, other languages and their possible translations)3. Trace the musical and the biblical history (i.e. how both histories helped form the translation)4. Identify the literary devices (simile, metaphor, imagery, symbolism, etc.)List references. The first paragraph from the handout discusses the “processes at work” and interpretation at play. Let this instruction be your guide to help trace the development of the meter text into the Psalm setting.
