Psalm 137, An Example Of A Poor Translation And Why We Need To Get Back To Our Hebraic Roots.

Happy (Blessed) is the one who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.

Did you know that atheists are using this Psalm 137:9 verse, to discredit God, and set up stumbling blocks for our children and those who are infants, in the faith?

Unfortunately, I have ran across this one, many times. What disturbs me, even more, is that typical Christian response, to it. Most Christians will say that you got to read it, in context. Well, that's true, if the above verse wa...s even in the original scriptures, but it's not.

We are a victim of erroneous English Bible Translations. This is the reason for our ministry's efforts, to help people, get back to the Hebraic Roots of Christianity.

If you use the tools, concordances, Greek and Hebrew dictionaries, etc., which are easily available, to all who wish to search the true scriptures, for themselves, you will find that Psalm 137:9 actually says, "Blessed is he who will seize and destroy your children's refuge or security."

In context, with the preceding verses, of Psalm 137, it is clearly talking about God giving a blessing to those who will fight to defeat and destroy the foundations of Babylon, not God condoning smashing children against the rocks.

God is calling you to get back to your roots and arm yourselves, with the truth, within God's Word, not tradition interpretations.

Shabbat Shalom

... and that's what you'll find, When You Search For The Truth.


  1. Hi Keith,
    I have noticed many things that don't appear to reveal the truth of what the scriptures actually say. I have a Bible with lots of footnotes on that give the translation of the ancient manuscripts. However, I am very grateful that you give us the original translations through your knowledge.

  2. Hi Keith, Psalm 137:9 is in the written Word of God. It's all there for everyone to read and to believe.

    Those who translated God's Word into English didn't made that up, and it wasn't an after thought either, and it doesn't say something different to that what it is written.

    It seems to me that you don't like what God's Word is saying, therefore you are trying to change the Word of God into something which suits you.

  3. Thanks Brenda. As you know, the truth comes from God, himself. We are supposed to the conveyors of that truth. It biggest point, that I wanted to get across, in the post, is that, in order to have a way to truly and definitively defend our faith, we need to know what the truth actually is and that is only possible by getting back to the roots of the Word, and being led by the Spirit.

  4. Hi Paul. It's actually the fact that is contradictory and doesn't make sense, with the previous verses. The Spirit of God is constantly saying to us, that God conceals things that you and I are to dig out. By relying on another mans interpretation, you are being lazy and actually not relying on Gods Word. This is part of why Y'shua will say, "Depart from me, I NEVER KNEW YOU!" The other side of that would be that you never really got to know him. Do you really want to be ignorant of God Word?

  5. Well my friend, the TRUTH actually is the Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:6) and anyone else is a liar (Isa. 65:16).
    What do you think that Yahweh is ?

    And remember, it is Jesus who said 'depart from Me, I never knew you'.

  6. Once again, please read the real scriptures, not your made up one. You are just as bad as the Morman's, who put the Words of Joseph Smith ahead of the Word of God.

    Your English Bible even says that it was translated, from the Masoretic Text. Now, you say that your erroneous English Translation supersedes the text from which it was translated. You're a textbook example of how Satan works on lazy and weak minded people, who folllow the flesh, rather than God....such a shame and it saddens me to the bone and you grieve the Spirit of God, every time you raise your erroneous translation up over the True Word of God.

  7. The True Word of God is Spirit and Truth and not hidden in some kind of a foreign language.
