The King’s Speech (Episode 21)

Did King David know how to write properly?! Because most translators act as if he made a simple mistake in composing Psalms 115:3! But instead of “correcting G-d’s grammar,” Rabbi Pesach Wolicki shows that the apparent glitch in G-d’s word actually points to a deep and powerful lesson about why G-d created with speech rather than with action. Along with David Nekrutman, they discuss the fallacy of translators who clean up inconsistencies, instead of using them to discover the incredible depths contained within.
