[quote="Marv"]I think I start to understand.
Basically your belief is that all of the more recent translations are based on the Septuagint. Is that correct?
To what degree do you think the Septuagint is followed?
Brenton Translation of the Septuagint.
Job 42:17 And Job died, an old man and full of days: (42:17A) and it is written that he will rise again with those whom the Lord raises up. (42:17B) This man is described in the Syriac book as living in the land of Ausis, on the borders of Idumea and Arabia: and his name before was Jobab; (42:17C) and having taken an Arabian wife, he begot a son whose name was Ennon. And he himself was the son of his father Zare, one of the sons of Esau, and of his mother Bosorrha, so that he was the fifth from Abraam.
Marv, your quote, " I think I understand...your belief is that the more recent translations are based on the septuagint ."
That is not a belief, but an established FACT, and , my conclusion after over 40 years of studying Bibles and Biblical History, more than ten different Languages.
With the exception of the very "deceitful" NKJV, which uses a mixture of both "corrupt" Wescott/ Hort , and the "pure" textus receptus source, ( a Hybrid text, if you will) all other books in the English language , called a Bible, are baseed on the "corrupt" Septuagint for the O.t. and the 1881 W/H New Test. revission.
Your final statement about Brenton's Translation, and the Misinformation about the "Syriac Book", as well as the "Rabinical garbage" about Job descending from Esau, just had me flabbergasted !!!
Do you actually believe this junk !!!! Is your scriptural foundation so shallow, that you do not know what the Bible declares about Job.?
And you are a Moderator of this forum?? Shame on you !!!
Job was the third son of Issachar ! (Gen.46:13)
Issachar was one of the 12 Patriarchs, the 5th son born to Leah and Jacob. (Israel)
Issachar was born to Jacob when he was about 90 years old.
Job was born to Issachar , when he was about 22 years old.
Job was not the descendant of Esau !!!!!
Job was an "Isrealite", descending from Jacob. We have God's own testimony about this in Ezek.14:14,and 20., as only God's "chosen people"
the "called out", were spoken of as "righteous"
Job's time of "testing" occurred when he was about 70 years old.(about 1850 B.C.)
Job lived after his testing another 140 years. Job.42:16
The book of Job was written in this last period of his life, with the help of Moses. Job died aprox. 15 years before Israel's exodus from Egypt under Moses.
The Exodus from Egypt took place about 1695 B.C, (and not around 1450 B.C., as falsely taught by "Brainwashed scholars" )
The fact that that Job, the son of Issachar, is the Job, discussed in the Biblical book of Job, is further re-inforced by the reference to him in James5:11, by the 'head pastor' in Jerusalem, (and half brother of Jesus )
Now having "Slam Dunked" another liberal theolgical supposition of error, let me move on to discussing what I discovered on your "Net Bible"
I am shocked at what I have discovered on your "Net Bible".
In Isa. 7:14, It states; "I give you a sign, a Young woman shall have a child". What is the SIGN ???? Any young woman can have a child !!!
The sign was that a VIRGIN woud have a child. The Hebrew "ha almah", means "the Virgin". Nowhere in scripture will you find support for such an argument, that "almah" ever refers to a "Married woman"
Then these Idiots, called scholars, have the gall, to add in their footnotes,
quote; "Ultimately, ones view of the doctrine of the Virgin birth, is un-affected." UN-AFFECTED ???? Are you kidiig me?? what Moron's !!!
And Chuck Swindoll endorses this garbage ? Has he become a FOOL ??? He needs to change his last name to Swindler !!
In Acts.8:37 the same travesty takes place , by these idiots removing words from the text. Yet , Irreneus, bishop of Lyon,(2nd century) and Cyprian, (3rd century) both discuss this text, (which the idiot scholars of your " Net Bible" have removed) in great length and detail, proving it existed in the codices prior to the fraudulent 4th century Vaticanus-b, and Codex-aleph.
This "Net Bible" , weakens the Virgin birth, Denies the deity of Crist , and makes obscure his bodilly resurrection , and if you tamper with these three, you do NOT have a Bible anymore.
Your Net Bible violates all human decency, it is the worst fraud I have laid my eyes on , in a long time !!!! It is a piece of garbage, that cannot sustain spiritual life.
