Hi Charlotte and Everyone, |
The various translations are similar to the KJV but some give additional nuance to understanding.
For instance, the CLV says "Do not be abundantly wicked, and do not be frivolous; Why should you die when it is not your time?"
The ISV, "Do not excel at wickedness, nor be a fool. Why die before your time?"
The YLT, "Do not much wrong, neither be thou a fool, why dost thou die within thy time?"
The Treasury of Scriptural Knowledge notes that "before thy time: Heb. not in thy time"
There are several examples of Jehovah's hand in such matters;
Act 5:5, 10
It seems to be an interesting study, one I had not thought of before. Thanks for including it.
Also everyone else have thoughtfully given their experiences that I'm certain we all share in our brotherly bond. Hope we can fully appreciate the time we have left.
