    In the May, 2008, issue of his Bible Believers' Bulletin under the heading "In response Dr. Ruckman writes," Peter Ruckman wrote: "The word 'refill' in Genesis 1:28 is just 'fill' in all Masoretic Hebrew manuscripts" (p. 3).

    I wonder in which edition of the KJV Peter Ruckman found the word "refill" at Genesis 1:28. Does anyone have an edition of the KJV that reads "refill" at Genesis 1:28?

    I don't believe any of them do. I could be wrong, though. :tonofbricks:

    Yes, KJV editions have "replenish" at Genesis 1:28.

    Peter Ruckman seemed to be implying that "replenish" means "refill" and that the KJV corrects the Hebrew at Genesis 1:28. A few sentences before the statement I quoted from Ruckman, Ruckman was suggesting that various preachers had been in effect "correcting 'the Greek and Hebrew'" when they preached from the KJV. One of his examples of this was his statement concerning Genesis 1:28.

    Peter Ruckman is actually changing the meaning of the word "replenish" as used in the 1500's and 1600's at Genesis 1:28 and is reading a later meaning into it.
