    I didn,t say it was a typo the other guy did I was explaining it wasn,t.It,s just two different versions of the same name Joram is a short version of Jehoram.

    Charlie; I can easily see how 'Jehoram' looks like a typo, but - you have to have FAITH that it's not. Why the difference I wouldn't venture to guess, because it IS God's word and He DID watch over it. I do not question God because I KNOW HE does not make mistakes.
  • Charlie
    It,s not a misprint Joram is a short version of Jehoram.
  • there is a misprint on 2nd kings 9:24;
    smote Jehoram between his arms, It should be "Joram"
  • Angie
    The only way a woman can piss on a wall is to sit on top of it. As someone suggested it is talking about all the males. A woman may bring forth a child but it is the father's name or house it will always belong to. So to wipe out the house you must wipe out the one who carries the name of the house.
  • James
    Doris,
    It means all men that are able to go to war.
    God bless.
