Micah 7:19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

Translation Concerns

“and thou wilt cast all THEIR sins into the depths of the sea.”

“THEIR sins” is the reading of the Hebrew texts as well as that of the Geneva Bible 1599, the RV 1881, ASV 1901, NASB 1963-1995, Darby, Young’s, Rotherham’s Emphasized Bible 1902, Jewish Publication Society 1917, Hebrew Names Bible, 2001 Judaica Press Tanach.

NKJV - “You will cast all OUR sins into the depth of the sea.” Footnote- literally “THEIR”

Agreeing with the the NKJV bogus reading of OUR sins (instead of THEIR sins) is the RSV, NRSV, ESV, NIV and Holman. The ESV footnote also tells us that the Hebrew reads “THEIR sins” just as the KJB and the Jewish translations have it. The NRSV also reads “our sins” like the NKJV now does, but the NRSV informs us in their footnote that the reading of “OUR sins” comes from the Greek LXX, the Syriac and the Vulgate, while the Hebrew says “their sins.”
