    Um, what?

    I'm obviously not a historian but Palestina is in Exodus and Isaiah. In Joel, it is specifically Palestine.

    As for the new testament... The land... :dunno:

    Not. Bible references Peleshet, translated as Philistia, land of the Philistines, not Palestine

    Do I need to scan the pages for you? Seriously?

    What bible are you referencing? Perhaps that is the dividing factor between us.

    Hebrew Bible Psalm 60:8: Mo'av is my washpot; on Edom I throw my shoe; P'leshet, be crushed because of me!"
    Psalm 60:8 "Moav is my washpot; on Edom I throw my shoe; Pleshet, be..." CJB - Online Bible Study

    Every version of the Bible translates Peleshet to Philistia
    Psalm 60:8 Moab is my washbasin, upon Edom I toss my sandal; over Philistia I shout in triumph."

    I apologize, JStone, but you are mistaken.

    I will leave you to your own research, however. May it be to your benefit.

    I'm not going to criticize your choice of belief or of reading material, I obviously do not share either at this point and likely won't in the near future.

    Perhaps read more, even online there are bibles printed with the word Palestine in the old testament. I will not quote the scripture for you, find it for yourself. When I quote scripture I do it for me and my own growth/depths. I will not do so to criticize or point out another's flaws, especially one that is obviously looking for such to be done.

    I won't battle bibles, either. I know and love the one I have and it is a treasure to me for many reasons, most unmentionable. Perhaps you have found one, as well, that you will come to invest in as I have mine.

    Palestine does not appear in the Old Testament. Palestine does not appear in the New Testament.

    Israel appears 2000 times in the Old Testament and New Testament.

    Well, okay.... continue to state such... get loud and more bold if you need to. I hope you come to find security within your own thoughts because, as is mine, they are necessarily flawed.
