O Jehovah, thou hast persuaded me, and I was persuaded; thou art stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am become a laughing-stock all the day, every one mocketh me. (ASV)
Note that this is the same God who supposedly "cannot lie" (Numbers 23:19, 1 Samuel 15:29, Titus 1:2). It appears that God's ability to spread misinformation is not impaired. --Robert Stevens 07:38, 24 Nov 2005 (CST)
Response to "Neutral" piece: several translations (most notably the KJV, but also the NASB, RSV and Webster's) have "deceived" here, rather than "persuaded". However, the Hebrew is ambiguous, and I will concede that "deceived" looks rather odd in context. It remains a problem for the "KJV-only" variety of inerrantist. --Robert Stevens 06:28, 21 Apr 2006 (CDT)
Edit this section if you doubt error.
Edit this section to note miscellaneous facts. What is your contradiction? The people of Jeremiah's day laughed at him because of his belief in God. There is no contradiction.
