The humble translators of the New World Translation

I could pick this quote this apart, but at the same time, it’s kind of quaint:

John Wischuk was impressed by not only the quality of the translation but also the humility of the New World Bible Translation Committee. “They did not want to be identified while alive or after death, because they wanted all the glory to go to Jehovah God,” he said.
