以掃的妻子,以實瑪利的女兒,是瑪哈拉還是巴實抹?

聖經中的名字有出入是經常發生的,其中一個是以掃的妻子,以實瑪利的女兒。他的名字同樣在創世記中,兩處不同的經文中,名字是完全不同。一處是瑪哈拉,一處是巴實抹。

英文譯本中,兩節經文中的名字同樣是不同,Mahalah 與 Basemath。

和合本修訂版同樣沒有加以修訂,也沒有備註在另一處經文是別的名字,看來就是一群聖經專家,也沒有留意到這個差異。這也是一直對和合本修訂版失望的原因之一。

參考經文:

創世記 28:8-9

  1. 以掃就曉得他父親以撒看不中迦南的女子、
  2. 便往以實瑪利那裡去、在他二妻之外、又娶了瑪哈拉為妻.他是亞伯拉罕兒子以實瑪利的女兒尼拜約的妹子
