It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today God is crazy in this verse.
“Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem three months and ten days. He did evil in the eyes of the Lord.” – 2 Chronicles 36:9
Wait, what’s so crazy about that? Check out the King James Version of this verse.
“Jehoiachin was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months and ten days in Jerusalem: and he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord.” – 2 Chronicles 36:9
In the KJV the king is eight years old. An eight year old was evil according to God. LOL! Then humans (and let’s be honest, old, white men) changed the Bible because they thought, well shit, it’s crazy the king was eight years old and evil, so let’s change the king’s age to eighteen so it seems less crazy.
Now that’s some crazy shit!
