Bible Notes

"Thou tookest vengeance of their inventions" (Ps. 99:8)—The Hebrew term here rendered "inventions" means literally "wantonnesses" or "deeds," though as a rule the reference is to "evil deeds" (Brown, Driver, Briggs: Hebrew Lexicon, p. 760). Moffatt has: "and hast avenged their wrongs;" and Smith: "but one taking vengeance for their sins."

"The Lord our God is one Lord" (Deut. 6:4)—In view of the fact that the construction of the Hebrew is unusually condensed at this point, there is considerable difficulty in setting down its exact English equivalent. The margin of the Revised Version suggests several alternative renderings, e.g., "The Lord our God, the Lord is one;" "The Lord is our God, the Lord is one;" and "The Lord is our God, the Lord alone." Moffatt has: "The Eternal, the Eternal alone, is our God;" and the Genevan Version has: "The Lord our God is Lord onely."
