"What agreement hath the temple of God with idols?" (II Cor. 6:16)—The Greek noun which is here translated "agreement" can also mean "compact" or "union." Thus Weymouth (Fifth Edition) suggests: "What compact has the Temple of God with idols?" Goodspeed prefers: "What bargain can a temple of God make with idols?"
"Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven" (Jer. 10:2)—Moffatt has the interesting translation: "Never learn to live like pagans, dismayed at portents in the sky;" and then goes on, "Pagans are dismayed at them, but their rites are inane," thus reading the first clause of verse 3 as forming a part of verse 2. In the Septuagint, verse 2 is rendered as follows: "Learn ye not the ways of the heathen, and be not alarmed at the signs of the sky."
