No rest for the wicked

Posted by D. macala on November 14, 2003

i have many times heard this phrase as "no rest for the weary", which, to me, seems completely out of the spirit of the original.

has anyone else noticed this? if so, how did a biblical reference become so turned around?

just curious - thought this would be the best place to find the answer.
