SEASONAL THREAD: in Isaiah 9:6 is the child to be born called ‘Wondeful’, ‘Counsellor’ (2 titles as in the KJV below) or ‘Wonderful Counsellor’ (1 title as in most modern translations)?
The 2 title version certainly sticks in the mind after hearing Handel’s beautiful ‘For unto us a child is born’, here with the @londonsymphony
The 2 title version seems general among Reformation translations (Here’s #Luther’s 1545 translation): ‘Wunderbar, Rath’, also separating out ‘mighty God’ as ‘Kraft’ & ‘Held’, taking ‘ēl ‘god’ in the sense of strong one.

Today is the 79th #birthday of #German economist and writer Roland Baader(1940-2012), a proponent of the #AustrianSchool of #economics, an indefatigable defender of #liberalism and prophet of the dangers of creeping #socialism. In a sense, a secular Martin #Luther.
Under hashtags of the form #MDHP-𝑛 I will publish my translation of the following #obituary for Baader:
Gerd Habermann: 𝘔𝘪𝘵 𝘥𝘦𝘮 𝘏𝘢𝘮𝘮𝘦𝘳 𝘱𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘰𝘴𝘰𝘱𝘩𝘪𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘯.
Junge Freiheit Nr.3/12 (2012-01-13)
(published in pdf-form in hayek.de/images/pdf/nac…)

..The title of the above newspaper article has no DIRECT relation to Baader's work, rather is an #allusion to a subtitle of a book by Friedrich #Nietzsche (1844-1900), written when Nietzsche was at the verge of mentally collapsing. (Nietzsche was incapacitated from1889 onwards).
