08676 Qere 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 kethiv reading rather than the
qere, we indicate the qere reading by the number *08676*.
For example, in De 19:6 "blood" is coded as
01818 08676 05315. The translators followed the kethiv reading
that has Strong's number 01818, which means "blood", but the qere
reading is Strong's number 05315, which means "life".
