Just one problem we have NO ORIGINAL SCRIPTURES. Everything we have is copies and they are unverifiable as being accurate because of the fact we have NO ORIGINAL. But God did say
a reply to: IllumimasontruthI can't imagine the task of trying to properly translate original scriptures.
This means two things one, no man will be involved in that preservation (only its penning) and two, if he has done as he says he would, where he said it, then there is at least one English Bible that is his preservation out there today, I believe that to be the KJV. If the Lord tarry the Next preservation will be in Chinese. But I doubt it will ever happen because we are seeing peace peace concerning Israel.
Ps 12:6-7The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

When you compare the LXX to the New Testament it is word for word verses put back into the OT. There is no KNOWN copy of the LXX / Septuagint prior top 250AD. This means it did not exist before that date. And that is why when you read the LXX you come across verses that are exact word for word from a NT that had to be in front of them when they wrote the LXX sometime after 250AD.
If say if God is consistent, and He is, He would have mentioned Hell in the Creation, the Law, warnings to many and the fates of many more. We see, over and over, only simple death, with "hell" not mentioned.
TextI have been trying to prove that Jesus did. But Jesus was not quoting as far as we know any LXX because the earliest copies known to exist 250AD that is one issue. Secondly a Jew in Jerusalem would be quoting from the a Hebrew OT the same that Paul and Timothy studied, they were just called Scriptures. When Jesus Read from Isaiah it was a Hebrew copy of the OT.
