This past year I've been reading the Living Bible paraphrase and I came across a section in Haggai 2 that seems to be missing a couple of verses. Verses 8 and 9 seem to be missing. Is this a mistake or am I missing something?

Here are verses 6-10 from The Living Bible (TLB) from Bible Gateway:

“For the Lord Almighty says, ‘In just a little while I will begin to shake the heavens and earth—and the oceans, too, and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and the Desire of All Nations[a] shall come to this Temple, and I will fill this place with my glory,’ says the Lord Almighty. 8-9 ‘The future splendor of this Temple will be greater than the splendor of the first one! For I have plenty of silver and gold to do it! And here I will give peace,’[b] says the Lord.”

10 In early December, in the second year of the reign of King Darius, this message came from the Lord through Haggai the prophet:

Well I guess that confirms that there is a mistake in the Logos version of the Living Bible. I will have to report it.

I reported using the right click method "report a typo" method. Does anyone know if this is still the best way to record this type of mistake?

Yes. If you selected vs. 7 thru 10 (incl. verse numbers) and commented accordingly it should be clear what the issue is.

As Dave says this is still the best way to report it.

But worth noting we no longer get typo submisision notifications - that service - based on Libronix functionality- has been retired

This might be historic: Bruce could the first person to read Haggai in the Living Bible.

There will need to be an asterisk beside this record, indicating the incompleteness of the text that he read. Once it is corrected someone can stake a claim to having read the entire book.

On another note, I suppose it is to be expected that a Living Bible will grow and change.

I must say that I laughed out loud when I read that.Thanks for making me smile. Smile

I decided to read the Living Bible in addition to my annual reading of a different Bible version each year. It was actually quite interesting comparing it alongside the NASB95.

I actually remember that and didn't expect a response this time.

Perhaps Revelation 22:19 lit a fire under the update team!
