    Buonasera a tutti! sto preparando una guida in inglese in una mostra di arte sacra e vorrei sapere se qualcuno può dirmi come è stata tradotta la frase del vangelo: "Dio mio, Dio mio perchè mi hai abbandonato"? grazie a tutti!

    Non so se gia e stata tradotta in un altro modo ma ecco la mia prova (quasi parola per parola): "My god, my god, why have you abandoned me?"

    Credo che "forsake" sia proprio il vocabolo presente nel vangelo! thank u all!

    Since the Bible wasn't written in English, I would avoid saying that "forsake" is in the gospels. It has obviously been translated many times and in very different ways, depending on the time of the translation, the place, and the varying political or religious agendas of the translators or their patron. A wonderful book called "God's Secretaries" describes the "making" of the famous King James version. For a comparison of the various versions, go to the biblegateway website.

    Occhibelli, we all know that the Bible wasn't written in English, however most of the English translations use the word 'forsaken' there ('turned away from' and 'abandoned' are some of the others). :)
