The Crimes of Jehovah

Mark Mirabello, author/compiler


All the Old Testament selections cited below come from the King James version of the Bible. This translation can be cryptic at times to the modern reader—when the King James version talks about a plague of emerods' (1 Samuel 5:9), it is referring to hemorrhoids, medically defined as livid, painful, bleeding lesions about the anus,' and when the King James version talks of paramours, whose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses' (Ezekiel 23:20), the text is referring to enormous penises and abundant seminal fluid—but at other times the translation is charming in its clarity. Thus, in the King James version, the reader may find this unbowdlerized passage in II Kings 18:27:

Hath he not sent me to the men which sit on the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?
