    Thanks so much for posting this. I’ve requested the list from Cambridge but haven’t heard back yet. What’s the error supposed to be in Hosea 13:15? Both columns are the same above, and the existing 2005 NCPB text looks fine to me.

  2. February 9, 2012 11:42 am

    Jesse: Thanks for your note. The change at Hosea 13:15 is hard to see because of the fonts — a change in a single (British style) quotation mark.

    To contact Cambridge University Press, I suggest writing bibles@cambridge.org.

    Except for the missing text at Leviticus 11:35, arguably the errors in the 2005 edition are quite minor.

    I have another erratum for your list. I corresponded directly with the editor, David Norton, about this one:

    Wisdom 7:16

    NCPB: “For in his hand are BORN we and our words”
    1611/1769: “For in his hand are BOTH we and our words”

    Professor Norton replied that NCPB was in error here. It should read “both”. Your blog seems to be the authoritative clearing house for such matters, so I thought I’d post this information here.
