Matthew 1:18 "Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost."

"With child," before his birth. Not with thing. Not "thing" before birth, nor after.

This is a completely different Greek word, viz:
"G1064
γαστήρ
gastēr
Of uncertain derivation; the stomach; by analogy the matrix; figuratively a gourmand: - belly, + with child, womb."

Why not have the translators just stick to the Greek - stick to what it actually says??

John UK wrote:
Luke 1:35 KJV
35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
No mention of "child" anywhere in the greek, so how RSV and NASB can put that word in illustrates sloppy translation work.
John. This is the Greek word at that point

"G1080
γεννάω
gennaō
From a variation of G1085; to procreate (properly of the father, but by extension of the mother); figuratively to regenerate: - bear, beget, be born, bring forth, conceive, be delivered of, gender, make, spring"

The NASB has turned this into "child" which is wrong. I guess the NASB translators didn't like God's version and have decided to "improve" on God's Bible.

This must be what Jim Lincoln means when he talks about preferring someone elses interpretation - instead of the Word of God.

In the UK it is not unusual for us to say of someone, "Aw you poor thing" perhaps in pity etc. 'Thing' then can be used where specific identification is not essential to the statement. Just as I have corrected Jim before in the correct use of
