Bible "versions"

Another Spanish lesson...

As we reminisced together with the amigos argentinos, friends from half a century and a continent away that happen to live or be visiting in the area, we were regaled by some very funny Bible quoting errors.

A Clean Gospel
When Victor and Dory's oldest was very young he recited John 3:16:
"Porque de tal manera amó Dios al mundo, que ha dado a su Hijo higiénico unigénito, para que todo aquel que en él cree, no se pierda, mas tenga vida eterna."

Godly Math
Eduardo remembers the time when a poor-reader was called upon to read Philippians 2, speaking of Jesus humbling himself and therefore being exalted by the Father:
9 Por lo cual Dios también le exaltó y hasta lo sumó, y le dio un nombre que es sobre todo nombre,

Moral Reversal
I was then reminded of the time back in high school when Mike signed the yearbook of one of the most popular girls, a beautiful and upright person, and added a Scripture reference--Proverbs 5:3-6. He earnestly desired the best for her, however, the numbers were reversed. Can you guess what he meant to write?
Look it up and smile. (Easy way: search http://www.biblegateway.com/)
