On the translational continuum, you have paraphrases, dynamic, mixed, formal, and then (at least for the OT) something like Fox's literal-at-the-cost-of-good-English translation, which attempts to give reader's the flavor, rhythm or texture of the Hebrew. See http://www.bible-researcher.com/schocken.html for a sample. (I've requested this and the notes for BW, but it probably won't happen.)

Is there something equivalent for the Greek NT?

Does Young's Literal Translation do it for you?


EDIT: I should have checked BW first. YLT is in BW.

In German there's the Münchener Neues Testament (in BW: MNT). Not quite word-for-word literal, but close; called a "Studienübersetzung".

I'd rather be in Munich myself right now . . .

Wish I You best the.
