If I want to replace a passage's translation with another translation, or my own editing, how do I do this?

example:
I want to have the ESV read in Exodus 32:4 "this is your God" and not "these are your gods."

I have done something similar for lectionary editing using a visual filter, but others may have found a better solution.

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

There is a discussion of an approach to doing this at https://community.logos.com/forums/t/16999.aspx 

The first post in the thread introduces the idea but it is worth scanning through the entire thread to see some refinements of the approach.

In summary, yes. But it is not possible to overwrite the original text as you can only minimise its size (to 20%) and then put the replacement as "Text Before" in a Highlight style. And you need a Highlight style and a Visual Filter for each passage you want to replace.
