666 translated wrong?
I read some where where the #666 was translated wrong but now I find anything on it. Or am I mistaken. Thanks

Only part of this video is relevant to the Bible translation, but it's still interesting



If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

I know the NT was written in Greek, but I don't know what letter 6 corresponds to in that language.

In Hebrew, 666 = ווו = www

I just get a kick out of the correlation. Smile

I do know that some say that is was waw which means 616 but I'm still not sure about this one yet.

Yes it is. I'm debating with someone about this and wanted to get my facts straight.

That's a really interesting video, I never saw it that way. It actually makes sense, since the bible could have been used to transmit political messages to hebrews.

Also, while watching this video I couldn't stop thinking about Iron Maiden!

No, not quite. There is no "w" sound in Hebrew. Only V. The letter vav is used to represent the w sound in modern Hebrew because there are lots of words from other languages that have made their way into the lexicon.

I was thinking it was something like that. I'm just trying to find out if it was translated wrong, why and what's its supposed to be.
