As I've been reading the Christian Standard Bible this year I've been extensively using the Information panel. Recently I've noticed that the "Translation" section includes a Latin text. To me this seems like a mistake. Should these translations not all be English?

The example below is from James 4:10. All the translations use "humble yourselves" except for the Clementine Vulgate which, of course, uses Latin. Perhaps this resource has been incorrectly identified. Thoughts?

I had not noticed the Latin before, but I think you'll get a result for every reverse interlinear you have. I didn't have the Vulgate RI until recently.

I'm guessing that someone who has Spanish or German RIs along with English could confirm this.

Mine is a bit more fun - yes, I believe languages depend upon what you own.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Correct:

And if you choose a passage from the Hebrew Bible, e.g. Leviticus 26:41, you will also get the Greek translation from the Septuagint:

Thanks for all your responses. I now have a better understanding that this information just reflects the content of any reverse interlinear and translations from the LXX.
