Bible Notes

"This night thy soul shall be required of thee" (Luke 12:20)—The Greek term "psuche," translated "soul" in this and the preceding verse, can also mean "life," and the margin of the Revised Version has: "This night is thy life required of thee." Weymouth, however, prefers: "Foolish man, this night they are demanding your soul from you."

"He gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow" (Isa. 41:2)—There is some doubt as to the original text of the Hebrew in this verse, and translations vary accordingly. Kent suggests: "His sword made them as dust and his bow like driven stubble;" and Moffatt: "His sword drives them like dust, his bow like chaff before the wind;" while the Septuagint reads: "Who ... shall bury their swords in the earth and cast forth their bows and arrows as sticks."
