The Blasphemous Comma

A list of (rather amusing) Bible errata caused by peculiarities of translation as well as printer error (and ‘error’) throughout history.

A personal favourite has to be:

The Blasphemous Comma Several editions: Part of Luke 23 reads “And there were also two other malefactors. [crucified with Jesus]” It should have read “And there were also two other, malefactors.”

As well as the Wicked Bible which manages to omit the ‘not’ from ‘Thou shalt not commit adultery’ and also (apparently) manages to replace ‘greatness’ with ‘great arse’ which the Lord hath shewed us along with his glory.
