“…and earth abideth forever”
“By faith Moses left Egypt, not being afraid of the anger of the king….”
“And he said, Who made thee (Moses) a prince and a judge over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killest the Egyptian? And Moses feared and said, Surely this thing is known. Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh and dwelt in the land of Midian….”
“That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such….”
(1 Thess. 4:6)

“he said unto Abraham, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them 400 years….”
“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God”

“And it came to pass in the 480th year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt in the 4th year of Solomon’s reign over Israel….”
(1 Kings 6:1).
If there were 476 years between the time the Israelis left Egypt until the first year of Solomon’s reign and Judges ruled for 450 of these years, then Saul and David could have only ruled 26 years. Yet, 2 Sam. 5:4 says David alone ruled 40 years.

“Moreover, Brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And all were baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea”
(1 Cor. 10:1-2)
“And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them: And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel….”
“the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharoah that came into the sea after them…. But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea….”
“…so that no human being might boast in the presence of God”
(1 Cor. 1:29),
“Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger and not thine own lips”
(Prov. 27:2) and (Psalm 94:4)

(2 Cor. 11:17-18),

“…but I laboured more abundantly than they all….”
(1 Cor. 15:10).
“For our God is a consuming fire”
“In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ….”

“…and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour”
(1 Cor. 3:8)
“God will render to every man according to his deeds….”
(Rom. 2:6) and (2 Thess. 3:10)
“And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat”
“Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?”
(1 Cor. 11:14)
“For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head….”

“For our God is a consuming fire”
(Heb. 12:29), and (Judges 9:23, 1 Sam. 16:14, 2 Thess. 2:11).
“And every priest stareth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sin”
“…and the priest shall burn them upon the altar…and the priest shall make an atonement for his sin that he hath committed, and it shall be forgiven him”
“And one kid of the goats for a sin offering to make an atonement for you”
“And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for himself”
(Lev. 17:11), and (Lev. 4:26).
“The merchants among the people shall hiss at thee (Tyre); thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt be any more”
“…and shall set thee (Tyre) in the low parts of the earth, in places desolate of old…that thou be not inhabited….thou shalt be no more; though thou be sought for, yet shalt thou never be found again, saith the Lord God”
(Ezek. 26:20-21) and (Ezek. 26:14)
“Now when we had discovered Cyprus, we left it on the left hand, and sailed into Syria and landed at Tyre”
“when we had finished our course from Tyre….”
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners…his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper”
…some (the judges and prophets) were tortured…. Others suffered mocking and scourging, and even chains and imprisonment. They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were killed with the sword; they went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, afflicted, ill-treated….”
“The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come….”
“And afterward they desired a king: and God gave unto them Saul….”
“And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river”
“the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months”
“By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months by his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment”
If the she was not afraid, then why did she hide Moses (pbuh)?
“By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac…offered up his only begotten son….”
“For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman”
“Abram was 86 when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram” plus “Abram was 100 when his son Isaac was born unto him”
(Gen. 16:16 & 21:5).
“…if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law”
“Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the Lord”
“For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them”
“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy”
“Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days”
…For it is written….The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain”
l Cor. 3:20
Paul misquoted Psalm 94:11
“The Lord knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity”.
“And again, Isaiah saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust”)
Paul misquoted Isa. 11:10
“And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek….).
Isaiah does not say he shall reign or rule over the Gentiles
Isaiah refers to “it” not “him.” This seems to be a trick taught by Paul which Christians have learned well and they apply it to the Comforter.
“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him”)
1 Cor. 2:9
he misquoted Isa. 64:4
“From of old no one has heard or perceived by the ear, no eye has seen a God besides thee, who works for those who wait for him”.
Nowhere in Isa. 64:4 does it say, “neither have entered into the heart of man.”
Paul states, “the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” Yet, Isaiah 64:4 does not state or even imply that there will be a future reward for those that love God. It merely states that God will work for those who wait for him.
Paul also omits, “no eye has seen a God besides thee,”
“Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men”)
Paul misquoted Psalm 68:18
“Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men….”)
Psalm 68:18 says “received gifts” not “gave gifts.”
It also says “thou” not “he.”
Jesus never led captivity captive, led others to a high mount, or gave gifts unto men.
There is a big difference between “giving gifts to men” and “receiving gifts for men.”
“…as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged”)
Paul misquoted Psalm 51:4
“…that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest”).
Psalm 51:4 says “judgest” not “art judged.”
Psalm 51:4 also says “and be clear” or “blameless,” not “and mightest overcome” or “prevail.”
“But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand”)
Paul misquoted and misapplied Isa. 52:15
“…the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they have not heard shall they consider”).
Isaiah 52:15 says nothing about “he was not spoken of”; it says “that which had not been told them.” It says “that,” not “he.”
“They that have not heard shall understand” is not the same as “that which they have not heard shall they consider.” Because something is considered does not mean it is understood.
“Then said I, Lo I come [in the volume of the book it is written of me] to do thy will, O God”)
Paul distorted Psalm 40:7-8
“Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me. I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart”). He left out the last phrase (”thy law is within my heart”) which shows God’s will is the law.
“…then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory?).
1 Cor. 15:54-55
Paul misquoted Isa. 25:8
“He will swallow up death forever”)
“…O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction”).
Isaiah says death will be swallowed up “forever” not “in victory.”
Hosea says “thy plagues” not “thy sting.”
“Hosea was not written in interrogatory form.
Hosea says “thy destruction” not “thy victory.” It is difficult to see how Paul’s words could be accurately derived from Isaiah and Hosea.
“…ye might receive thy promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry”)
Paul perverted Hab. 2:3
“For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry”).
Habbakuk says nothing about “he.” The “it” in the verse is a vision, not Jesus. Hab. is referring to the maturation of a vision he has. The “it” referred to has nothing to do with the arrival of any individual.
Where in the OT, esp. Hab., did God promise “he will come and not tarry?”
“Let their table be made a snare, and a trap and a stumblingblock, and a recompense unto them: let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway”)
Paul misstated Psalm 69:22-23
“Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap. Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake”.
The Psalmist said nothing about a “stumblingblock,” a “recompense,” or “bowing down their back alway.”
“And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob, For this is the covenant unto them when I shall take away their sins”)
Paul misquoted and misused Isaiah 59:20-21
“And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord. As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord….”.
Isaiah 59:20 says “to Zion,” not “out of” Zion.
Isaiah says the Redeemer shall come “unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob.” It does not say the Deliverer “shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob.” In other words, he will come to those who turned from transgression on their own volition. It does not say he will turn away ungodliness.
Moreover, “when I shall take away their sins” is not in Isaiah 59. Paul created that out of nothing.
Nowhere does Isaiah use the word “saved” or “salvation” as Paul uses it.
“as he saith also in Hosea, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God”)
Paul misquoted and misused Hosea 2:23
“…and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God”
“…and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God”).
Hosea 1:10 is speaking only of Jews as Hosea 1:11 (”Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together”) shows. It is not referring to Gentiles and does not justify spreading the word to Gentiles.
“and her beloved, which was not beloved” is not in Hosea. Paul created the words.
Hosea 2:23 says, “and they shall say, Thou art my God,” which Paul conveniently left out of his quote since millions of Gentiles have clearly not made such a statement.
“But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? [that is, to bring Christ down from above] or, who shall descend into the deep? [that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead]. But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach….”),
Paul mutilated Deut. 30:12-14
“It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it? But the word is very nigh unto thee in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it”.
The latter is only saying that his (Moses) commandments are easy to obtain. They are not far off but as close as one’s heart or mouth. Deut. says nothing about “faith.”
It refers to seeking “it” and doing “it,” not seeking “him” or doing “him.”
It does not even imply Christ or Jesus, let alone mention him.
Deut. is referring to Penitence and is not about believing on or bringing down Jesus from heaven or up from the dead.
Deut. is saying that God wills us to repent of sin and that you may know when you have sinned. You have only to look at his law which is very close by.
“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more”)
Paul misquoted and misapplied Jer. 31:33-34
“…but this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts,…for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more”.
The New Covenant referred to in Jer. 31:31 is not that of Jesus’ New Testament but a reaffirmation with Israel of the importance of following the Old Law. Jer. 31:33 clearly states that God’s law (my law) will be put in them.
Jer. says the law will be written in their hearts, not their minds and God’s law will be put in their inward parts, not their hearts. “And in their minds will I write them” does not appear in Jer.
“As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed”)
Paul misquoted Isa. 28:16
“Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste”.
Isaiah says nothing about “on him” or “being ashamed.”
Isaiah says God will lay a precious corner stone, a sure foundation, not a stumbling stone or rock of offence.
True, Isa. 8:14 (”And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel….”) speaks of a stumbling stone and a rock of offense, but it is speaking of God himself. Paul deceptively combined two unrelated verses and altered the text in the process.
Heb. 12:20 is a misconstruction of Ex. 19:12-13
Heb. 4:3 is a perversion of Psalm 95:11.
“For even Christ pleased not himself: but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me”
Paul misinterpreted Psalm 69:9.
The “me” referred to in Psalm 69:9 is David; he is speaking, not Jesus.
“…I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?”
Paul misinterpreted and misapplied 2 Sam. 7:14
“I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men and with the stripes of the children of men”.
In 2 Sam. 7:14 God is saying he will call Solomon, not Jesus, his son.
How could Jesus commit iniquity which Paul omitted. It must be referring to a mere mortal like Solomon.
Certainly God would not beat Jesus with a rod, cause stripes to be put on him, or threaten to chasten him with stripes.
In Heb. 12:21 (”…and so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake….”)
Paul is referring to the fear Moses had when he stood at the base of an untouchable mountain and witnessed blazing fire, gloom, darkness, trumpets sounding, and words.
Yet, Paul is using Deut. 9:19
“For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure, wherewith the Lord was wroth against you to destroy you”
which is actually referring to Moses’ fear of the Lord’s anger at the time he found them worshipping the Golden Calf.
“…even Jesus made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec”
Paul misapplied Psalm 110:4
“The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek”) to Jesus.
The “thou” in Psalm 110:4 is referring to David, not Jesus.
“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree”
Paul used Deut. 21:22-23
“And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be put to death, and thou hang him on a tree: his body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in any wise bury him that day, ….”
for his own ends.
Deut. 21:22 is referring to a sinful man who couldn’t be Jesus since the latter is supposedly sinless (1 Peter 2:22).
Jesus was not hanged.
He did not die on a tree and never remained “upon the tree” during the night.
Actually Paul is calling the alleged “Savior” cursed.
“For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord”
Paul quoted part of Deut. 32:35
“Vengeance is mine, and recompense….”
and falsely attributed the original comment to the Lord. The quote was actually made by someone who felt he was God’s agent.
“But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin”
Paul misinterpreted Psalms 32:1-2
“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile”.
Just because God forgave iniquities does not mean one is saved by faith.
Psalms says nothing about belief or believing “on him.”
In no sense does Psalms imply that a man’s sins are forgiven because he believed or accepted something.
“But God raised him from the dead. And he was seen many days of them which come up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses unto the people. and we declare unto you glad tidings how that the promise which was made unto the fathers, God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm <’…the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee’>”).
Where does Psalm 2 say or where is it equivalent to saying in some distant day I will raise Jesus of Nazareth, Joseph’s son, from the dead. The second Psalm does not promise that:
anyone will rise from the dead,
he who is the Son of God must rise from the dead,
Jesus of Nazareth is the son of God or
anyone risen from the dead shall be the son of God. Moreover, the Psalmist in Psalm 2:7 is speaking of himself, not Jesus.
In Heb. 2:6-9 Paul perverted Psalm 8:4-6. (a) The Psalmist stated that God made man, not Jesus, to have rule over all God made and God made man, not Jesus, a little lower than the angels. What the Psalmist stated has no relation to Jesus as Paul implies in Heb. 2:9. (b) Why would Jesus have been worshipped by the angels if he was made a little lower than them? (c) A crown of glory and honor was never put on the head of Jesus.
In Heb. 1:8-9 Paul misinterpreted Psalm 45:7:
If Jesus is God or co-equal with God, would the Psalmist have addressed him with “thy God.” How could Jesus, who is God, have a God?
Verses 45:1,8-9 show the Psalmist is speaking of a king. Jesus’ garments never smelled of myrrh, aloes, and cassia. And king’s daughters were never among Jesus’ honorable women.
“Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me; In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure”)
Paul misquoted and misapplied Psalm 40:6
“Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt
offering and sin offering hast thou not required”.
“but a body hast thou prepared me” is not in Psalm 40:6. Paul created it.
“mine ears hast thou opened” is in Psalm 40:6 but Paul omitted it.
Psalm 40:12 (”…mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head….”) was written by the same person who wrote Psalm 40:6 who couldn’t have been Jesus since the former committed many iniquities. Paul took the verse out of context.
Moreover, nowhere in the Gospels did Jesus say what Paul attributed to him in Heb. 10:5-7.
