judgment … is passed: (For the faithful never coming into judgment at all, Mr. T. R. Birks saw "no ground but Alford’s altered translation of John 5:24, which I believe to be a mistake" (Thoughts on the Times and Seasons of Sacred Prophecy, p. 65, 1880): an astounding utterance, not only in its philological aspect, since the Greek admits of no other sense, but no less certainly as a question of divine grace and truth, and of divine righteousness .... This misrendering in the A.V. is corrected beyond just hesitation by the R.V. As to "Alford’s altered translation," be it remarked, that the A.V. of John 5:22 and 27 corrects the error in 24 and 29. It is the same word κρίσις all through, which indisputably means "judgment," not damnation or "condemnation" like κατάκριμα, as the verb (22,30) means "to judge." Nor is it unimportant to notice the ignorance of talking thus of Dean A., seeing that the most influential perhaps of all versions, Jerome’s Vulgate, is quite right in both John 5 and 1 Cor. 11, where the A.V. was lamentably and inexcusably wrong. In the Gospel the old Latin MSS. Vercell. Veron. Brix. etc. were right. Many of the Oriental versions are correct; some waver like the A.V. to the ruin of definite truth on what is of great moment. But where the doctrine on everlasting punishment was unsound, it is not surprising to learn that there was lack of faith as to life eternal and its exemption from judgment.) ... All the great English translations are wrong here, Wiclif, Tyndal, Cranmer, and Geneva, with the Authorized Version. Singular to say, the Rhemish version alone is right, in this following the Vulgate: a mere accident undoubtedly, for none are so distant from the truth conveyed by their own translation, from the apprehension of exemption from judgment, as Romish doctors. And none are so unfaithful in the next clause, for they actually make the Lord seem to say "shall pass from death into life." (In Nonnus’ Paraphrase of our Gospel (fifth century, ed. by Passow and Bach, 1834) there is the similar error of rendering ιξεται εκ θανατοιο. So in the Amiatine and other ancient Vulgate MSS. we have "transiet," and in a Munich old Latin copy of the sixth century "transibit.") He really said ἁλλὰ μεταβέβηκεν ἐκ τ. θ. Εἰς τ. ζ., "but is (or, hath) passed (the present result of a past act) out of death into life." Here the Protestant versions are right, Wiclif feeble, the Rhemish false. And there is not even the excuse of the Vulgate, which reads "transiit." Possibly they read "transiet": but if so, it was an error which some copies of the Latin would have corrected, if they ignored the inspired original. (Exp. of John, p.111-3)
judgment: I do not wish to find fault with our translation, but let me prove that the word ought to be "judgment." "It is appointed unto men once to die, and after that the judgment." Here the very same word that is translated "condemnation" is used. "There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus." Here it is another word; and there is just as much difference in the words used in the Greek as in the English. What God declares is, that he that hears His word has everlasting life. It is a present thing. The believer again is passed from death unto life. What would be the sense of judging life, of judging what God has wrought? (Bible Treasury N8:169)
judgment: You will observe that in this passage I have altered the word "condemnation" to "judgment;" I have done it advisedly, because it is the only true meaning of the word. "Condemnation" is a positive mistake. That which is rightly translated "condemnation" elsewhere, is totally different from this. Thus, "there is no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus," is not the same word at all. But sometimes where our Lord and the Holy Spirit say "judgment," the translators have ventured to depart from the word of God, and have introduced "condemnation." (Lect. on Gal., p.167)
judgment: It is well known, and must be insisted on, that this word κρίσις means judgment, and not "condemnation." There is no Greek scholar who does not know that there is another word (κατάκριμα) whose function it is to express "condemnation." Remarkably enough, it stands correctly represented in the common Popish version, though we all know the Roman Catholic version is too often inaccurate, and otherwise faulty, because it follows the common text of the Vulgate, even in its blunders not a few; yet for all that, the Vulgate being right as to this particular passage, the Romish version is therefore much nearer the truth of God in this chapter than the Authorized version of our Protestant Bible, though now given correctly by the Revisers of 1881. The Roman Catholic version, faithful to the Latin, which is here faithful to the Greek, allows and maintains throughout the whole context that there are two dealings in opposition one to the other, life-giving and judging. (Bible Treasury N6:105, Lect. on the Second Coming, p.352-3)
judgment: The word used here throughout means simply "judgment." Unquestionably the effect of judgment is condemnation. Would that our own and other translators had only understood this thoroughly, because this very result, which is otherwise scripturally certain, necessarily excludes the believer! Herein lies the importance of the truth before us .... ["Judgment"] is a verbal noun formed from, and alluding to, the same word that was rightly translated "judge" in verse 22. It is essential to the context that the same sense should be preserved intact throughout. (Lect. on the Second Coming, p.355-6)
judgment: It cannot be denied. It is in vain for learned or unlearned to attempt glosses, clever or clumsy, over the expression. The word of God is too strong for man to bend it. No doubt, the truth is too bright for those that uphold the error of the A.V. in this particular case. This or other reasons may have influenced the English translators from Tyndale: the motive I do not pretend to judge; but the fact is plain. And I affirm that "condemnation" or "damnation" is a wrong rendering of κρίσις for which there is no tenable ground. The verb means, and is rightly translated, "judge" (verses 22-30); the substantive means, "judgment," or "the act of judging," and should have been so translated throughout, as is now done by the Revisers of 1881. (Vers. 22, 24, 27, 29, 30). (Bible Treasury N6:123-4, Lect. on the Second Coming, p.359-360)
judgment: [Q. What is the precise difference between κρίνειν, ἀνακρίνειν, διακρίνειν, ἐγκρίνειν, κατακρίνειν, and συγκρίνειν in N. T. usage? R.]
A. The meaning of the first or simple form is "to judge," ανακρίσις being the technical word for the previous inquiry or preliminary investigation. Compare 1 Cor. 2:15, 4:3-5, 9:3, 10:25, 27, in the Greek, as well as Acts 25:26 (noun). But διακρίνειν is "to discern," right in 1 Cor. 11:29 but wrong in 31; as the simple form means not "damnation" but "judgment" and even as contrasted with that. Again συγκρίνειν is in plain contradistinction to ἀνακρίνειν, in 1 Cor. 2, and means the communicating or authoritative explaining of spiritual things in spiritual words, not sifting or examining them. In John 5:22-29 the confusion of the A.V. is extreme and seriously misleading. The right word is "judge" or "judgment" throughout, not "condemnation" as in 24, nor "damnation" as in 29; for our Lord is contrasting "life" with "judgment," though the issue in this case be the same. In 1 Cor. 11 the "judging" is present, in the sense of temporal only, in contrast with final and everlasting condemnation (κατακρ.). Compounded with ἀπὸ the verb means "to answer," as it should be in 2 Cor. 1:9, not "sentence," as we may add. (Bible Treasury N3:176)
