A translation and paraphrase is very different. Paraphrasing is taking the direct quotes from The Bible and making a summary. However a translation opens up the door to having different interpretations depending on the language.

A paraphrase you put in your own words, but keep the essence of the thoughts or quotes. A quote is a direct statement of a person.
