Well, I am not sure what to tell you...
It has been written for over a year now and has been read and easily understood by many with whom I have spoken who understood the progression of thought with no difficulty and agreed.
The Old English period is followed by Middle English (12th to 15th century), Early Modern English (c. 1480 to 1650) and finally Modern English (after 1650). (from wikipedia on old english)
In the King James Version:
Genesis 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
According to you, God was restraining, preventing, hindering - light.
2Kings10:24 And when they went in to offer sacrifices and burnt offerings, Jehu appointed fourscore men without, and said, If any of the men whom I have brought into your hands escape, he that letteth him go, his life shall be for the life of him.
According to you - the prisoners, if anyone prevents him going, that person shall pay for it with his life.
letteth in the KJV doesn't mean prevents. It mean allows. If anyone "allows" him to go, escape, that person shall pay for it with his life. That's what is being said in that verse.
I hope this weekend to finish the book on Enoch I'm reading and start on a book on DNA. Besides that, I'm going to enjoy my 3-day weekend with my wife, dogs and fixing my car, if the relay comes from Amazon comes in time. I really appreciate Amazon's breath of products, customer reviews and quality service. I might even get some shooting done at the range. Hope you all have a safe Memorial Day weekend.
"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. [NASB, John 15:13]
How much more is the love of Jesus for us that He laid down His life for us who were not yet His friends? And let us never forget this Memorial Day the ultimate sacrifice of our men and women in service to this country, who put their lives on-hold, and on the line for all of us. God bless them, their families and friends.
