Discussion for Zechariah 13:6

  • Here is one for you. Why does it state in the KJV "What are these wounds in thine hands? " and in the NIV it states "What are these wounds in thing back "? I know they are talking about the false prophet and the ritual scares related to pagan practices that his friends gave him. I don t get the mix up of hands and back. Why does the KJV say hands? Big difference between the two.
