Funny Bible Quote #62

And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

~ Genesis 1:29, KJV


  1. Uhhh...again, really bad translation. The word for meat is "basar", and this verse says "ochel". "Ochel" means food.

  2. Meat was a term in early English for all food, including nuts and fruits (the edible part of nuts are still technically called the meat).

    The "funny" would be if one were to assume this means cannabis, opium, coca, and other plants are gifts from God.
