    and thence he might travel, through London, by the Watling Street

    to Chester, or by the great north road through Lincoln and York to

    Hadrians Wall. Here, as on other frontiers, travel to the Roman

    came to an end. Comparatively free of bodily dangers, it was

    anything but free of moral risks. The inns were not pleasant to

    decent people : and hence the great value attached, when

    Christians began to travel, to letters of commendation and to

    hospitality. But travel was swift, as speed then went, and sure. A

    man could have done his journey of 1,250 miles from Rome to

    the Channel without misadventure or delay : and never again, till

    our own age, would a feat like that have been open to him. But

    then he could have also done what is still impossible to us, for one

    language and one coinage would have carried him all the way. A

    common language and culture penetrated everywhere by thesegreat routes. Juvenal, 55- c. 135, had a supreme contempt for

    the Greek adventurer. But there was a nobler Hellenism which

    had furnished models and inspiration to the great writers of the

    Augustan age, and which was destined to refashion Italian culture

    in the generation following his death. The Emperors from Julius

    Caesar to M. Aurelius were, with few exceptions, trained in the

    literature of Greece. Even the bluff soldier Vespasian had

    an adequate command of the Greek language....From the close ofthe first centuryclassical Latin literature....came to a mysterious

    end. The only authors of any merit in the second century wrote in

    both languages indifferently.!!!!241!!A3&E%!!E!!>30#&D1!!L1A1!

    !Ta*! f>3#)*gii**! But the matter is not that simple. Anyone who

    translates also interprets: the translation is not simply a rendering

    of the underlying text but also an expression of the translators

    understanding of it. And every translator is a child of his own time

    and of his own culture. Consequently every translation must be

    understood and appreciated as an intellectual achievement in its

    own right. This is especially true of the versions of the Bible which

    were produced to meet the practical needs of a community. Mostversions of the Bible have been the work of anonymous

    translators!(usually of many translators) who have given concrete

    expression in their work to the intellectual assumptions of

    their age and their culture, the religious and other opinions which

    they adhere to or respect, the prejudices and concerns which they

    adopt consciously or unconsciously, their education, their ability

    to express themselves, the conceptual range of the language theyare translating into, and many other factors. We must therefore

    distinguish between what comes from the original text and what is

    added by the translator a formidable task to accomplish before

    we can use the versions for purposes of textual criticism. fX%1E!

    not one was left, only the tribe of Judah by itself. Also

    Judah did not keep the commandments of the LORD theirGod, but walked in the statutes which Israel made. And

    until He had cast them out of His sight. For He tore Israel

    from the house of David. And they made Jeroboam the son

    of Nebat king. And Jeroboam drove Israel away from

    following the LORD, and made them sin a great sin. For

    the sons of Israel walked in all the sins of Jeroboam which

    he did. They did not depart from them until the LORDturned away Israel from His face as He had said by all His

    servants the prophets. So Israel was carried away out of

    their own land to Assyria until this day. And the king of

    Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and

    from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and
