Believe it or not, the translators got bored and weary plus had their own agendas, leading to mistakes, weird word choices, multiple synonym used, and self-righteous alterations. They also did not comprehend everything they wrote (like the scribes in Yeshua’s day), which caused some meanings to be lost (and rediscovered). Praise You, Father, that You hide things from those who rely on their own intellect or the knowledge of men and reveal them to the unschooled and the humbled vessels.

Remember always to take everything to the Lord in prayer and wait for the answer.
