Bible Notes

[The Biblical citations given in the Christian Science Quarterly are from the Authorized King James Version. The Bible Notes in this column can be used, if deemed necessary, to elucidate some of the words or passages contained in the Bible Lessons. The Notes in this issue are related to the Lesson-Sermon designated to be read in Christian Science churches on August 17, 1941.]

"Thou hast delivered . . . my feet from falling" (Ps. 116:8)—The Hebrew word which is here translated "falling" has the more liternal meaning of "stumbling,"and, as a consequence, Briggs renders the passage: "Thou hast rescued . . . my feet from stumbling;"while Smith offers a similar translation.

"He hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness" (Isa. 61:10)—The Hebrew terms here translated "salvation" and "righteousness" respectively have in the original a rather wide variety of meanings; hence Moffatt is justified in the alternative translation: "He has clothed me with victory, arrayed me in a robe of triumph." Then, too, the Greek Version had: "He has clothed me with the robe of salvation, and the garment of joy."
