Luke 1:1 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, 2 Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word; 3 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus, 4 That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.

NAMESAKE } PAVILION FROM HOLY BIBLE
Jeremiah 43:10 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will send and take Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will set his throne upon these stones that I have hid; and he shall spread his royal pavilion over them.
Psalms 31:20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. 21 Blessed be the Lord: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.
Psalms 27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. 6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord. 7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
Psalms 18:9 He [God] bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet. 10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. 11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. 12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire. 13 The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire. 14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them. 15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O Lord, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils. 16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters. 17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me. 18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the Lord was my stay.
II Samuel 22:11 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind. 12 And he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies. 13 Through the brightness before him were coals of fire kindled. 14 The Lord thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered his voice.
Paraphrase, Revised Modern English Edition, Revised New Testament Greek Interpretations Versions… (Bible originally written in Hebrew and Aramaic in the Old Testament, and Koine Greek in the New Testament – translated diligently into English by the Christian King James Commission to produce the only authorized English version of the Authorized King James Holy Bible).
Paraphrase Bibles http://www.learnthebible.org/paraphrase-bibles.html
My question is about paraphrase bibles. My Pastor likes to use one when he preaches. I work under this man in the ministry. My concern is if we teach or preach the word of God from a paraphrase bible, how will sinners know the truth of the individual words? A paraphrase bible is one that allows the greatest level of liberty in translation. In fact, translation is probably too strong a word for many of the paraphrase bibles out there.
Among paraphrase bibles, I am most familiar with the Amplified Bible. I have called it the Multiple Choice Bible because it tends to give a string of synonymous words or phrases in order to give numerous ideas as to what the verse might be saying. Unfortunately, it tends to confuse the sincere Bible student by giving a myriad of choices. For the creative teacher who needs evidence for his own unique doctrine, this bible is a storehouse of choices. If you do not like what the Bible says or if you simply need proof for a particular point, this paraphrase will often give you just what you need. But in reality, it makes God sound like a wishy-washy deity who must leave the real meaning of truth up to each person’s whim.
Other paraphrase bibles include Good News for Modern Man and the Living Bible. These bibles mold God’s word into a contemporary fusion of hip and political correctness. The text is “translated” according to liberal interpretation and modern nonsense. The lost and the spiritually immature often love these versions because they are fun and easy to read. It does not matter that God never made His Bible fun and easy to read–at least not from cover to cover. There are simple portions and there are difficult portions. There are joyous sections and there are plenty of heavy portions of scripture. The paraphrase relegates God’s holy words to an unimportant side-issue. How people feel when they read the version–that is the deciding factor for most modern paraphrases. I am sure that there are many modern paraphrases with which I am not familiar. As men get bolder and bolder with manipulating the words of the holy God, more and more modern versions are truly paraphrases. The dynamic equivalency doctrine of many modern versions is just a fancy way of saying paraphrase. It means that the text should be translated in such a way as to have the same effect on modern readers of English as it had on ancient readers of Hebrew and Greek. This sounds good, but it is a matter of interpretation. It means that translators must be confident that they know exactly what God was saying to the ancient recipients of the Bible text. The translators must also know exactly what effect these words had on them. Then, they must be able to determine what words will have the same effect on modern readers in another language and put the text in those words. This is not translation per se. It is interpretation. It means that the reader of these bibles must totally trust the “translators” to put the right spin on the text. I do not trust them and neither should others.
The Bible gives various warnings to those who would add to or subtract to the words of God. Perhaps it would be good to close with some of these scriptures.
Deuteronomy 4:2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.
Proverbs 30:6 Add thou not unto His words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
