@JMaxB I sought out Lattimore’s New Testament after encountering his earlier collection of just the four Gospels and the Revelation.

That’s what I’ve always liked about Lattimore’s renderings: how he shows the books’ radical weirdness (or wyrdness?) through just those sorts of small, startling divergences. And his translations were the first to demonstrate for me what distinctive voices each of the evangelists had.
