Oops, misprint!! By Jack Lewis

Usually in this blog we write about slightly more serious subjects, but this week I thought I’d share with you a story I found in the newspaper, and thought it was rather amusing. Basically, it’s about Bible printers who have just slightly misprinted what they were planning to write…
  •         “Printers have persecuted me without a cause.” (Should be “Princes have persecuted me without a cause.”) Psalm 119:161 
  •         “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall inherit the kingdom of God.” (Should be “Shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”) 1 Corinthians 6:9
  •         “Thou shalt commit adultery.” (Should rather obviously be, “Thou shalt not commit adultery.”) Exodus 20:14
  •         “Blessed are the placemakers, for they shall be called children of God.” (Should be “peacemakers”) Matthew 5:9
  •         “Go and sin on more.” (Should be “Go and sin no more.”) John 8:11
And finally my favourite…
  • “Let the children be first killed.” (Should be “Let the children be first filled.”) Mark 7:27
