By SI Filings Apr 05 2021 English Bible TranslationsNew International VersionAbortion"Some abortion advocates point to a passage in the New International Version as Biblical justification for abortion. But the NIV’s speculative translation clouds rather than clarifies" - WORLD 341 reads There is 1 Comment Uh, wait.... Bert Perry - Mon, 04/05/2021 - 10:53am If the issue is a miscarriage, then why does verse 28 promise her that she shall conceive if she is innocent? Now the curse here could be that if a woman cuckolded her husband, she would end up losing the child she had conceived out of wedlock, but verse 28 makes clear that the overall pattern here is not a single miscarriage, but would rather be lifelong sterility. "She shall be a curse"--and as the husband of a woman going through menopause right now, I know that one of the side effects of that stage of life is that the belly swells somewhat--and then recedes as menopause completes. So I think the better explanation here is not a single miscarriage, and is definitely not an induced abortion at the hands of men, but is rather premature menopause. I would dare say that the NIV here is pushing their TNIV agenda, which was quietly repeated with the release of the 2011 NIV, which follows the TNIV/New Gelded Version more than it does the 1984 NIV. Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
