Verse omission on Mark 9:43-48
#5
:

Ok...this is a good mystery here. Gal 5:1 does not read this way --> "Stand firm therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and don?t be entangled again with a yoke of bondage." in any Greek text that I have seen. Where did the KJV translators get this reading? They normally stick with word order with their translating work...but here, the source texts that they had in Greek, do not read this way...but rather as what is found in the modern translations.

I would show the Greek texts here, but any time I try to put anything other than English in this forum, it wont take.

I was told once that the KJV did not have the Aramaic text to look at when they did their translation work...but so far, it is the only text that I can see that has the reading as they have translated it.

I'm scratching my head here...the Majority Greek Text is the same as the Alexandrian text type, neither having the same reading as the KJV and Peshitta share in common...

All these texts below have the very same reading: ---> "For freedom did Christ set us free: stand fast therefore, and be not entangled again in a yoke of bondage."

Greek NT: Westcott/Hort (1881)
Greek NT: Greek Orthodox Church (official text)
Greek NT: Stephanus Textus Receptus (1550)
Greek NT: Byzantine/Majority Text (2000)
Greek NT: Textus Receptus (1894)

So, where did the KJV translators get their reading from, if not from the Peshitta?

Shlama,
