Weird Bible Verse #1

Paul said, “I wish that

Those who are upsetting you…

Would castrate themselves.”


 I wish those who unsettle you would castrate themselves!

Galatians 5:12 NRSV

The original New Testament of the Bible (which doesn’t exist) was written in Koine Greek (not English) and some Aramaic. The Greek copies that have been found over the years were translated into many other languages: Coptic, Latin, Syriac, Ethiopic, and a whole slew of others. The English translation didn’t happen until the 16th Century. Today, we have many, many versions of the English Bible. You may have grown up with one particular version thinking that it’s the true translation of the original. But, who really knows. So, try reading one of your favorite passages in different versions of the Bible. BibleGateway.com is where I go to quickly change the versions. It’s a treat for me! But, I’m weird that way!

 I would they were even cut off which trouble you. King James Version

As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves! New International Version

I could wish that those who trouble you would even cut themselves off! New King James Version
