NIV Good or Bad wine - part 6

NIV Good or Bad wine - part 6

Pin It

I was going to wrap up the teaching on the NIV, however, the more I study the more God shows me how bad the problem really is. I hope that as you study these scriptures God will open your spiritual eyes and ears to this.

Let us take a look at more scriptures that have been changed.

Isaiah 14:12

Lucifer has been removed from some Bibles except for the KJV and a few others.

It has been replaced by:

NIV – morning star, son of the dawn or (son of the morning)

NASB – O star of the morning, son of the dawn (morning)

NLT – O shining star, son of the morning

The name of Lucifer has been removed from every other translation except for the KJV and one other.

Lucifer is not in the original Hebrew, however, the original word means “shining one, son of the morning” and the Hebrew word is helel, ben shachar. According to Strong's Concordance for the King James Bible, the original Hebrew word means "shining one, light-bearer" and the Latin word for “shining one” is Lucifer.

When you read these versions, you must take note that “shining one” or Lucifer is now referred to as a star. But in the original Hebrew the word for “star” is not in the text. The writers of these bibles inserted it. Also, the word “morning” appears only once in the original text, not twice as the other versions have written it. (Reference info above)

There is much discussion on what the original Hebrew text said about the Hebrew word.

One source says that it should be translated as

“How you have fallen from heaven,  

 You [wailing] lamenter, son of the dawn!  

 You have been cut down to the earth,  

 You who have weakened the nations!”

For further study -

The word for morning star can also be found in Job 38:7. The original Hebrew word for star is (kokab)

In Rev 22:16 Jesus said he is the bright and morning star

Rev 2:28, and I will give him the morning star

II Peter 1:19 the daystar appears.

These scriptures show that Jesus is the morning star and the daystar. Yet these other so-called bibles have equated Isaiah 14:12 as being the daystar or morning star.

Luke 1:78 – Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us….

Also, the NASB, if they haven’t changed it references II Peter 1:9 to Isaiah 14:12 which makes it factual that this passage is referring to Jesus and not Lucifer.

What is the point I am making? What does this mean?

It means that these versions would suggest that the fall that happened in Isaiah 14:12 is speaking about Jesus and not Lucifer.

But what do I know, I don’t have a DD, or haven’t been to bible college.

Now let us look at Luke 4:8 – The NASB, NIV, ESV and the others omit the first part of this verse.

Jesus said, “Get thee behind me Satan: for it is written, thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

The other versions say, “it is written” worship the Lord your God

Many versions have removed “of our Lord Jesus Christ”

Let us look at a few more scriptures:

Luke 12:31, omits the kingdom of God and says instead “Seek his kingdom”

Matthew 17:21, This entire verse has been omitted in the NIV, NASB, and many others.

II Corinthians 6:5 changed “fastings” to “hunger”

II Corinthians 11:27 changed “fastings” to “hunger”

These two words do not mean the same thing, you have hunger for a number of different reasons, however, “Fasting” is intentional.

Mark 9:29 removed “and fastings”

I Cor 7:5 removed “and fastings”

Acts 10:30 (changed it to prayer) I was fasting

KJV - And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour;

CEV - And Cornelius said, “Four days ago, about this hour, I was praying

Why remove fastings? Because Satan knows that certain things will not be moved unless fasting happens. He wants the people of God to remain weak and powerless and when you use bibles that have undermined the word of God.
