How Does the SDA Clear Word Bible Compare to God's Word?


Jeremiah 15:3-4 (King James Version)

3 And I will appoint over them four kinds, saith the LORD: the sword to slay, and the dogs to tear, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the earth, to devour and destroy.

4 And I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah king of Judah, for that which he did in Jerusalem.


Jeremiah 15:3-4 (New International Version)

3 "I will send four kinds of destroyers against them," declares the LORD, "the sword to kill and the dogs to drag away and the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth to devour and destroy.

4 I will make them abhorrent to all the kingdoms of the earth because of what Manasseh son of Hezekiah king of Judah did in Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 15:3-4 (SDA Clear Word Bible)

3 I have decided to let four detestable things happen to them: People will be killed by enemies invading their land. Dogs will drag away their bodies. Birds will eat their flesh. Wild animals will attack and devour those who are left.

4 I will make them abhorrent to all the kingdoms around them because of the awful thing that Hezekiah's son Manasseh did in Jerusalem when he was king of Judah."

Our Observation

William Miller's 1843 "Time Proved Fifteen Different Ways" - Proof #1, used Jeremiah 15:4 as part of the the basis for its calculations:


I prove it by the time given by Moses, in the 26th chapter of Leviticus, being seven times that the people of God are to be in bondage to the kingdoms of this world; or in Babylon, literal and mystical; which seven times cannot be understood less than seven times 360 revolutions of the earth in its orbit, making 2520 years. I believe this began according to Jeremiah 15:4, —

"And I will cause them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh, the son of Hezekiah, king of Judah, for that which he did in Jerusalem,"

and Isa. 7:8,

"For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Resin: and within three score and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people,"

– when Manasseh was carried captive to Babylon, and Israel was no more a nation,– see chronology, 2 Chron. 33:9,

"So Manasseh made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to err, and to do worse than the heathen, whom the Lord had destroyed before the children of Israel,"

– the 677th year B.C.

Then take 677 out of 2520, leaves A.D. 1843, when the punishment of the people of God will end.
