(48) Bad Bible Translations: Gross Negligence, Laziness, or Something Else Altogether?
What’s going on? Psalms 116:5 has three textual anomalies, and the translators pretty much ignore them. Moreover, the name of G-d in this verse is NEVER associated with the attribute of mercy… except here. Not to worry: David Nekrutman and Rabbi Pesach Wolicki explain it all, offering tremendous insights into theology and our relationship with G-d. It’s time to take to the streets with our picket signs and protest against the translators.
