In both the NRSV and NIV translations, an en dash (a.k.a. hyphen or dash) is consistently used where an em dash (a.k.a. double-dash) should be used. An example of this is in Romans 9:1. This tends to confuse or even change the meaning, as it implies hyphenated words rather than a parenthetic break in a sentence. (Maybe it's just me, but I stumble over these every time I read one!)

If I'm wrong on this, please educate me; otherwise I'd suggest correcting these. (Don't know if this occurs in other translations or not.)

Thank you.

I forgot to mention that I'm using Mantis on an iPhone.

We just pass on what we get from the publisher, so you would need to contact the respective publishers about any punctuation issues.

outsource website development Ok, they are right, it's not a high-quality thought to start the verdict with and. Secondly, anywhere the semicolon is it be supposed to be a comma.
