I'm suggesting your translator isn't very good at what he does.

@Yehoshua I was referring to my comment, as I prefaced with "are you asking me?". My comment refers to all old manuscripts, not just that one.

@SethJ Two traditional names of the Mashiach with the same Gematria? That's significant (ish. At least it claims to be).

comment How do books which have obviously been compiled become part of Tanach?
@JimThio Basically, if someone I trust read your book and said it was worthwhile, I might value it based on their judgement even if I don't value it based on the credentials of the author. No contradiction.

comment Why were there so many killings by Jews in the Old Testament?
@user4784 So you see how you chose a particular definition of 'bad' which the OP wasn't using and then challenged him from it? That's not really nice, fair or interesting. The definition you chose is particularly boring in fact as we already have a way to describe that concept ("Divine Command"). The OP was referring to the kinds of morals we have intuitively without God coming along and commanding things.
