Bible Notes

"This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God" (John 11:4)—Moffatt offers the interesting rendering: "This illness is not to end in death; the end of it is the glory of God."

"The Lord is the strength of my life" (Ps. 27:1)—The word "ma'oz," here rendered "strength," can also mean "a place of safety" and so "a fortress or refuge" (Brown, Driver, Briggs: Hebrew Lexicon, p. 732). Consequently, Moffatt prefers to translate: "The Eternal is the fortress of my life;" and Smith: "The Lord is the refuge of my life;" while the Septuagint Version has, "the defender."
