    Which of these renderings from the KJV is better: the one that puts the apostrophe on "children" or the one that puts it on "Israel" in the phrase "the children of Israel?"

    Exodus 9:4b
    and there shall nothing die of all that is the children's of Israel

    Numbers 31:30a
    And of the children of Israel's half

    Numbers 31:42a
    And of the children of Israel's half

    Numbers 31:47a
    Even of the children of Israel's half

    Which of these two KJV renderings is better


    Genesis 31:38a
    This twenty years have I been with thee

    Genesis 45:6a
    For these two years hath the famine been in the land

    Perhaps we should ask,

    Which one is PERFECT?

    I think Logos1560 is merely showing us the inconsistency of some KJV renderings.
