However, the Masoretic Text exclusively presents the verb [phrase omitted] in participle qal conveying the meaning of "nurse, custodian, or protector" of a baby or infant as it can be seen in Num 11,12 ([phrase omitted], the nurse), Isa 49,23 ([phrase omitted] your guardians), Ruth 4,16 ([phrase omitted], nurse), 2Sam 4,4 ([phrase omitted], nurse), 2Kgs 10,1.5 ([phrase omitted], protectors, guardians), and Esther 2,7 ([phrase omitted], foster father/protector).
One impact of the relocation was the increased emphasis in promotional materials on the Yehoah Bible's fidelity to the traditional Masoretic text. The bottom of YFG stationery from communication in 1940, after the publication had finally been completed, described the Yehoash Bible as "the only complete classic Yiddish translation of the Bible true to the Massoretic [sic] Text.
Whereas previously scholars looking at the biblical text discerned development in the language over time, the discovery of extra-biblical samples of Hebrew writing, in inscriptions, the Qumran scrolls and other sources has apparently overturned the concept of an identifiable linear development of the language, with older documents showing what were thought to be more recent features, and others displaying words and grammatical features not found in the Masoretic text.

Schenker does think it a matter of principle that the canon not have a single textual form; the Septuagint, for instance, he takes to be "pleinement et authentiquement Ecriture Sainte" (185); and he thinks the same of the Masoretic Text, even though they are, of course, not identical while yet being in some sense the same text.
The KJV and early translations depended on the Masoretic text. However, the Dead Sea Scrolls discovery in 1949 (with a text more than a thousand years older, which agrees with the Septuagint) led to key changes in the New Jerusalem Bible translation, including a distinction between God (Il/El) and Yahweh.

In translating the Hebrew Bible or Old Testament, for example, most modern Bibles depend on the highly dubious Masoretic Text, created by scribes who were active from around 780 to 930 CE in modern-day northern Israel.
By "original" I do not mean the King James version of the Bible nor do I necessarily mean the Hebrew Masoretic text, which is a later translation of more ancient texts.
The contrast between the Masoretic text of Deuteronomy 26:8 and the Septuagint's translation (mid-3rd century B.C.E.) serves as a useful place to begin this inquiry.
The rabbis who compiled and handed on the official version of it in the so-called Masoretic Text, between the 6th and 10th centuries of the Common Era, counted the letters in each book, backwards and forwards, identifying both the number of characters and the middle one, to assure absolute fidelity of copying.
