“This is the sin of Sodom; she and her suburbs had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not help or encourage the poor and needy. They were arrogant and this was abominable in God’s eyes.”
– Ezekiel 16:48-49

I wonder how much the kids woudl resent me if I joined the Partiot Guard?

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    The KJV, NKJV and NIV refer to it as “Sodom and her daughters”, whereas the GNV refers to “Sodom and her villages.” Peterson’s “The Message//ReMix” refers to “She lived with her daughters …”

    I’m thinking this particular wording is from a New Living Translation or from a Holman Common Standard Bible. Not that I can find either one for verification.

    i think it holds as a translation, though, because as with many things in the prophets, the Greek litteral has a different meaning than the english word-for-word translation. The biggest fallacy I’m finding is people who expect the word-for-word litteral to mean the exact same thing as modern english….
