Discussion for Job 41:8

  • Kenny on Job 41:8
    The word battell used in the original 1611 edition actually means a list of debts owed. Check the Oxford English Dictionary. Also where the word that is used to mean battle in the 1611 edition of the book of Job it is spelled battaile. It is little wonder why the book of Job is so misunderstood. Also, the word battell had a dual meaning at one time and it does mean a fight of some kind in other books of the 1611 bible but not in the book of Job!
