So they hired a series of ghost writers and rewrote some of what was written. Apparently, the publisher alleged that God's writing style was very aggressive, and that the masses wouldn't take to it. Further, some of the language was open to misinterpretation.
As a result, some was rewritten and very easy to understand. i.e.
Thou shall not kill, the 10 Commandments.
Other writings were more obscure.
The Lord answered, “Bring me a heifer three years old, a she-goat, three years old, a ram three years old, a turtle dove and a young pigeon.” Genesis 15:9
No one really understood what point He was trying to make. Remember, this was before radio, television or newspapers, so cooking shows were unknown. Or was it about something else. Something sinister?
Genesis was pretty messed up.
