Dynamic Equivalence

Luke 21:33
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.

There was a time, not so long ago when it was square to study. Now its cool. What’s more, it you say it’s cool, you’ll be absolutely, 100 percent, dictionary correct. The teen meaning of the word “cool” is in the new unabridged dictionary, the Random House Dictionary of the English Language. The dictionary defines its current slang meaning as “great, fine, excellent.” According to lexicographer Stuart Flexner, a senior editor of the dictionary and an authority on slang, teens are the source of much that is new in today’s general vocabulary. Most slang, he points out, is created by older teens and by people in their early twenties. Then it filters up to adults, and down to younger teens.
Tan, Paul Lee, Encyclopedia of 7,700 Illustrations, (Garland, Texas: Bible Communications, Inc.) 1996.

Remember,dynamic equivalence is an effort to convey the original meaning of the word, phrase, or sentence, rather than given a definitive word-for-word translation. It is an idea-for-idea translation. Dynamic equivalence is sometimes call "functional equivalence."
