    Well now you see why KJV is a meme. The original Hebrew is עָרוּם which obviously means cunning, crafty, sly in this context. Basically everything you know about a snake. The 1600s word "subtill" also means sly, artful, cunning, crafty" in this context. But you don't even know what most of the words in the KJV actually mean because the meanings in English have shifted and changed over time. You act like you're getting the most original meaning even though it's the least accurate.

      like what the frick is a yoke if I've never farmed before 20th century europe?!

      king James you wiener SMOKER just give me the version of the Bible that isn't obtuse like I KNOW YOUVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO FOR CENTURIES.

      OR maybe he'd like to go back to fricking his third cousin like the rest of the "noble" trash.

        Oh sorry, I thought you were pro-KJV and you thought everyone else changed the Bible when they changed the word from delicate to cunning. Yeah just read NIV it's honestly the most accurate even though it doesn't have any old timey sounding language.

      When you study the word more you see this doesn't matter. For example how did the english words devil and lived become the opposite of each other? Also the word evil and lived seems to have the name eve in it which the bible says is the mother of living how could that be? Theres a story of manu in india that is like a combination of noah and jonah. Likewise manu sounds like man and the story says manu was the first man after a great deluge. Now consider the word Immanuel from isaiah: I am man you are el (i.e. god). Therefore What it could really be is a metaphor for something like kundalini up the spine and subtle energies and concepts when you meditate

        On the off chance that you're not schizophrenic, I can explain it: Those are just coincidences. There are so many words in the English language that there was bound to be that many weird examples like the ones you listed out. Think about how many words are spelled backwards from another word in the Bible and DON'T have the opposite meaning. Think about how many words could be used in a description of Eve but DON'T have the name Eve in them. It's probably 100,000 or more. Think about how many stories there are in foreign languages about a person who did something, but his name DOESN'T mean an explanation of who he was or what he did in English. Literally millions. So the fact that you came up with one example where it does isn't really very interesting. And I could go on.

        You can translate the Bible into any language, real or fake, and you could even run it through a mad libs and change all of the adjectives and nouns and scramble the names, and I could still come up with 5 weird coincidences like that. "Don't you find it odd that Mad Libs Bible describes Mary as being cruciferous, and her son was crucified for us? This proves that it's right"

      Don't we just spell it in English as subtle?

        Yes, but not in 1611

    The Bible was written for people with an entirely different psychology from anyone today so it could be argued that most of the nuance in the language is simply just lost to time, translation, and from being passed down as an oral tradition for hundreds of years before being written down.

    It may as well have been written for an alien species living on another planet because the way the original audience of the Bible viewed and understand reality is completely foreign to pretty much anyone alive to day. If you’re going to read it you should try doing so from the mindset of someone born 2000 years ago in the Middle East.

    All these fricking evangelical neo-translations are the real disgusting ones, KJV is absolutely fine if you aren't braindead and want English prose, instead of larping away pretending an English translation is going to be accurate how about you learn Greek, or maybe Hebrew?

    I like the NKJV, it's a good balance between prosaic beauty, modern language use, and textual accuracy IMO

    >changing the bible
    You read the Bible in English and therefore you already reading a corrupt version. The original Old Testament should be read in Hebrew.

      No such thing. Ancient hebrew is a cypher, not an alphbet.

    Hebrew isn't the original, biblical Hebrew doesn't have the vocab numbers of a real language, Septuagint is the original, although obviously it draws from various Canaanite sources for myths

    I'm not being a troll but can Christians help me?

    Is the Bible supposed to be the inerrant Word of God? Why does it seem like it has errors and contradictions?

    Take pic related for example. This looks like a clear error 22 is not equal to 42. It becomes even more compelling when Masoretic Text does list it as 42 meanwhile other scriptures list is as 22 (making it consistent). Which means even the manuscripts we base it off do not agree with each other. Other "supposed" contradictions:

    >Jesus' last words seem to differ in Gospels
    >The women who visited Jesus' tomb kept quiet in Mark but told the apostles in others

    There are others but there are the ones that bother me the most. How can I trust the Bible if this is the case? I'm so confused.

      Check NASB translation

        I already addressed that. Some translations/manuscripts say 42 and some say 22. Making it a clear error of some type. So are you saying NASB is the Word of God and KJV fooled people for centuries? How can that be?

        Also what about the other contradictions?

          Are you asking why the contradictions are there, or are you asking for credit for gematria?

            Why the contradictions are there. It really seems like a legitimate error.

    You're an idiot. That moronic book for morons has been changed several times. The KJV is just the most recent version approved by a bunch of kid rapers in the middle ages. Your God is a fiction and you are a fool.
