Do you remember playing the game phone tag? A person is assigned as being it and she whispers something into the ear of the person beside her and then the next person and so on until at the end what is shared is nothing like the original. Some people think that is the way the Bible, we have today, has been put together. That is not the way the Bible has been translated. The way it has been put together is translators go back as far as they can to translate from the earliest and best manuscripts. Early manuscripts of which there is an abundance of. Just recently Israeli archeologists found dead sea scroll fragments in a desert cave bearing a biblical text believed to have been placed there nearly 1900 years ago. The psalmist writes regarding the words of God in Psalm 12:7, You shall keep them, O Lord, you shall preserve them from this generation forever.
