    Hi, Psalm 105:18 reads "his neck was put in a collar of irn" in the NRSV, and similar in the NIV. The King James has "he was laid in iron", but both the Hebrew and LXX seem to me to say "his soul was in (or placed in) irons" This is also the translation Radak, but the neck reading has some support in Genesis Rabbah 87:11. Psalm 69:1 has the same translation of nefesh. Can anyone help me out?

    The Douay-Rheims (In both the DR and the Vulgate Psalm 105:18 is Psalm 104:18) which follows the Vulgate has

    DRA:
    Psalm 104:18 They humbled his feet in fetters: the iron pierced his soul,

    Vulgate:
    Psalm 104:18 humiliaverunt in conpedibus pedes eius ferrum pertransiit anima eius

    Thanks! I was really just wondering where the word "neck" came from in those translations that use it.
    God bless, Colin
