I bought a book about two weeks ago.It's called :Bible History :Old Testament by Alfred Edersheim (1825-1889).His heritage was Jewish but he was converted to Christ while a young man and became a Presbyterian minister.Later he was a clergyman in the CoE. He was quite the Old Testament scholar.I looked at all the footnotes and culled some of them for this thread.I will deal with a fraction of the ones in which he indicated that the Authorized Version (hereafter A.V.) was mistaken.I am sorry that the order is mixed-up.I'll give a bit of his remarks at times and quote from the TNIV,Net and occasinally the NLTse among other translations. Page 377 Judges 11:40.The A.V. has "lament".It's an 'incorrect rendering'. TNIV and Net Bible :commemorate Page 386 Judges 15:19.The A.V. has "God clave the hollow place which is Lehi." TNIV : Then God opened up the hollow place in Lehi. Net Bibe : So God split open the basin at Lehi. Page 461,1 Samuel 15:12.A.V. :"He set him up a place." TNIV and NLTse : set up a monument NET : setting up a monument Page 469, 1 Sam. 17:6.A.V."target". TNIV,NET and NLTse :javelin Page 479, 1 Sam. 19:20.A.V.:"Samuel standing as appointed over them" TNIV :Samuel standing there as their leader NASBU : Samuel standing and presiding over them Net : leader Page 514, 2 Sam. 2:23.A.V.:"under the fifth rib" TNIV,NLTse and ESV : stomach Net :abdomen NASBU : belly Page 525 :In the A.V. by a copyist mistake the first two clauses of 2 Samuel 6:3 are repeated in verse 4. Page 526, 2 Sam.6:13.Eldersheim said:"The text uses the singular,and not as our in our Authorised Version,the plural.(KJV :"fatlings") TNIV and NLTse: a fattened calf Net : a fatling calf Page 528,2 Sam. 6:19.A.V. :"flagon of wine". TNIV and NLTse: a cake of raisins Net : a raisin cake Page 594,2 Chron. 2:13.According to Eldersheim the A.V. is "entirely misleading".A.V.:"Hu-ram my father's" TNIV and NLTse: Huram-Abi Net :Huran Abi The Net note says that Huram Abi means :Huran [is]my father. Page 615,1 Kings 10:28.Eldersheim says this is a "mistranslation".A.V.:"lined yarn". TNIV and Net: purchased them from Que ___________________________________________________________ To be continued.
