7 comments on “More Bible Version Deception – Who Killed Goliath?

  1. Funny, I do know for a fact that the ESV is a word-for-word translation as compared to the NIV which is a what-the-translator-thinks-it-means translation and they (ESV) make that mistake?Hm… I just received an ESV as a present since I needed a compact Bible for days in the field (I’m back to serving the Army for 2 weeks as a reserve starting Tue).

  2. Thanks for sharing this. I have been having a little confusion about the whole issue. I almost stopped using other version of the bible just because of such arguments.Remain blessed.

  3. Here’s another translation which doesn’t “contradict the Bible”, Young’s Literal Translation:And the battle is again in Gob with the Philistines, and Elhanan son of Jaare-Oregim, the Beth-Lehemite, smiteth [a brother of] Goliath the Gittite, and the wood of his spear [is] like a beam of weavers.

  4. there is so much confusion because of the different versions of the Bible that you are tryong to use. stick to the KJV 1611 av and nobody will be confused.

  5. “I don’t know how they could use this verse as support when all the versions clearly say ‘brother.'”the Hebrew and Septuagint both omit “brother of.” The KJV added it to try to make sense of the passage.

  6. Jeremy is right. If you want to really get to what the real "Bible" says, you need to study the Hebrew, not the KJV. The origianl text does not include "the brother of" that was added by the translators of the KJV because they thought that that was the intent of the original auther. Saying all of that, I believe that the Bible is true, and that David did indeed kill Goliath. Is there some explination that we will never know untill we get to Heaven…Probably. It all comes down to a matter of Faith. I have faith in the word of God and that's all I need.
