Did you know?
I was doing a short devotional today and I was suppose to read Matthew 18:11-14. The problem here is that my Bible which is a NIV does not have a Matthew 18:11. I thought this might have been a typo so I went online to Bible Gateway and typed in Matthew 18:11 for the NIV. There was no verse which came up. There is a Matthew 18:10 and a Matthew 18:12. How ironic. I recall from some years ago that the NIV "skipped" a verse. I had forgotten about it until now. I decided to do a little research to see what English Bibles did not have this verse. Here are my results: The Message, NIV, NLT, ESV, CEV, NIRV, & NIVUK. I thought this was interesting. Does anyone have any ideas why this is so? I plan on researching it further to find out why.
