11 Surprising Bible Passages
Think you know what's in the Bible? Think again! When biblical verses from the beginning of Genesis are retranslated from the original Hebrew, the results are unexpected! And some crazy verses everyone seems to miss!
Retranslating the Old Testament
The Hebrew Bible, otherwise known as the Old Testament, has been translated countless times. But most of those translations are a bit, how to put it? Dry.
OMGWTFBIBLE is a podcast that, each month, retranslates the Old Testament from scratch without caring who it offends. And it turns out, that when you look real closely at the text, all sorts of crazy stuff starts popping up. Let's take a look and some of the weirder stuff in the first 6 chapters of OMGWTFBIBLE's version of Genesis!
1. God created sea monsters!
2. Adam and Eve weren't married!
3. The snake had freaking legs!
4. Cherubs are not cute!
5. Giants walked the Earth!
6. Noah was old as hell!
7. Noah was raped by his son!
8. People died on each other!
9. Sarah was really hot!
10. Abraham mutilated some animals this one time!
11. Also, Abraham circumcised a whole bunch of dudes!
