Jeremiah said (I used KJV translation but the translations are about the same)
How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain.
I am questioning the meaning of the bold phrase
Does it mean Torah or laws of God in general. What does Jeremiah mean by "the law"
That URL above says that Jeremiah complain about torah being corrupted.
That is not the most common interpretation.
What did Jeremiah complain about? Was Torah corrupted during Jeremiah era? Was the statement on that URL true? Why bible translation translate "torah" into "law" instead of "torah"
You can check the hebrew here.
Somehow wa tawrat becomes "law of god". Even though the english have a word for tawrat, that is, torah. Did Jeremiah refer to torah or some other "law of God" in Jeremiah 8:8?
Basically I am asking
- What does wa tawrat means on that verse
- Does Yimeryahu actually complain that the scribes are corrupting/miscopying the 5 books of Moses, say by adding priestly sources, like the URL I said claim?
