The Necessity of Bible Study: On the Eagle and the Vulture

He who seeks will find, but you have to know where to look for it. Time and again I find the answers I seek in the Bible. That is why I now know for sure that Bible study is necessary for every human, because the Bible is separate from every belief system, religion, or whatever movement within it. Bible study also has nothing to do with believing, and everything to do with knowing. The Bible is a Scientific Book. However, there are two major problems with what is commonly understood by the “Bible”. First, the common translations of this book collection are not based on the original versions of the most ancient books (or scrolls). And secondly, hardly anyone understands that not only do the parables have a deeper meaning, so do also all alleged “historical” descriptions. I will illustrate this here on the basis of five (closing) verses from the 39th chapter of the Biblical Book of Job.

In the King James Version (from 1611) we read:

26 Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?
27 Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?
28 She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.
29 From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.
30 Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.

In the New International Version (from 1978), this became:

26 Does the hawk take flight by your wisdom and spread its wings toward the south?
27 Does the eagle soar at your command and build its nest on high?
28 It dwells on a cliff and stays there at night; a rocky crag is its stronghold.
29 From there it looks for food; its eyes detect it from afar.
30 Its young ones feast on blood, and where the slain are, there it is.

However, the Jewish Publication Society (from 1919) translated this as follows:

26 Doth the hawk soar by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?
27 Doth the vulture mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?
28 She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the stronghold.
29 From thence she spieth out the prey; her eyes behold it afar off.
30 Her young ones also suck up blood; and where the slain are, there is she.

The main difference is that the vulture is mentioned by the Jewish Publication Society instead of the eagle in the King James Version (and also in the New International Version). When you let this text sink in, are the bottom three verses then about an eagle or a vulture? What do you think?

The eagle is like the king of birds. That is why the Roman Empire, the Third Reich of Nazi Germany, and today the USA all three chose the eagle as a symbol of their military power. While the eagle is considered exalted and good, we see the corpse-pecking vulture as evil and despicable. How is it possible that these two kinds of birds of prey have been interchanged in the above Bible translations? We can only answer this question if we go back to the most original source text.

For five years now, I have been translating the Bible word for word from the most original source text. That is absolutely necessary, for if the essential distinction between a vulture and an eagle was clearly not understood by the translators, what more blunders have been made? How stupid a translator must have been not to see that it is not the eagle’s young that “feast” on blood, but of course the vulture’s. And likewise, it is not the eagle that pecks corpses, but clearly the vulture. Even a child can understand that the King James Version completely misses the point here, and with it all translations based upon it.

In short, all mainstream versions of the Bible are NOT the Word of God. We must consider the original texts of Scripture as Lawful Valid Promises by God to us, but tampering with these texts has rendered the common translations Lawfully invalid. In order to know what the Word of God is really about, you should study literal translations of the original Scriptures. That is the only way. Anyone who thinks otherwise is fooling themselves. Would you go to court with a wrongly translated contract? I would most certainly not, as the Judge we are talking about here is Omniscient!

In the original text of the Bible book of Job three kinds of birds (of pray) are mentioned (and not two, as in all wrong translations), namely the hawk, the eagle, and the vulture. Do you know what three types of bird symbolize? Well, I do!

The correct translation of these five verses is found in Pateo’s Restored Bible (from 2021):

26 And from out of Your higher knowledge the hawk stands high with fixed wings, discerning towards the South.
27 And upon Your command the eagle rises up. But the vulture sits lodged upon his nest,
28 upon a prominence of rock and hidden.
29 There he seeks food. His eyes observe from afar.
30 And his young befoul themselves in blood, and wherever ones dying may be, immediately they are located.

If you feel deep down inside that you are drawn towards the Word of God, then get started with genuine Bible study. A new world will then literally open up to you, in which words fail to describe your gratitude for this. That happened to me, and also to many who study the Bible with me as a subscriber to Wholly Scripture TV.

So don’t fall into the trap of everything that is offered to you labelled as “spirituality”, including all religions. Anyone who does so is violating the First Commandment. In the ever more maddening “ordinary” world, deception is everywhere and lies reign. This concerns not only “science”, “health”, “sustainability”, “truth”, and not to mention “money”, but also, last but most certainly not least, “spirituality”. Furthermore, if you get distracted by all those untruths instead of doing what God asks of us, then you have been snared too.

Wholly Science is the Key that opens the Bible

Thanks to my knowledge of Wholly Science, I manage to uncover the deeper meaning of seemingly incomprehensible Bible texts every time again. I did that for five years through video presentations, and now I do that through written texts (called the Extra Testament). That in itself should be sufficient proof of the correctness of Wholly Science. But if more is needed to convince you of this, then read what advanced students say about the added value of Wholly Science. I therefore strongly advise everyone to start studying Wholly Science as soon as possible, or to continue with it. Remember that a human is never too old to learn, and also that as the twig is bent the tree is inclined. So do it now, before it might be too late.
