08675 Kethiv Readings

In the Hebrew Bible, the scribes did not alter any text they felt
had been copied incorrectly. Rather they noted in the margin what they
thought the written text should be. The written variation is called a
kethiv and the marginal note is called the qere. Where the translators
of the Authorised Version followed the qere reading rather than the
kethiv, we indicate the kethiv reading by the number *08675*.
For example, in Ge 24:33 "was set" is coded as
07760 08675 03455. The translators used the qere reading that
has Strong's number 07760 but the kethiv reading is Strong's
number 03455. Both words have the same meaning, "was set".
