it comes from the bible

Posted by David Chapman on December 03, 2005

far be it from me to query a phrase BUT "etc. etc. it comes from the bible?"

surely not since english was not the original language of the bible, it was translated ages ago. Surely it's simply the best literal translation of the phrase as used by the monks/priests who translated it. Not to be pedantic or anything :)
