 * See the dilemma that translators face at Jeremiah 17:9-10. A Literal Reading of "heart" and "kidneys" is nonsense in the modern world — does it matter at all? Should we be uncomfortable about knowing better than Jeremiah, God's inspired prophet? Is anyone going to insist on kidneys where the RSV freely translates it as heart — and perhaps even insist that our deepest thoughts and feelings are kidney-based, because that ancient belief is found in the Bible?
