Hi Banah:
There is no question but that translators have been grossly reponsible down the ages for widesprad misunderstanding and distortions of the biblical texts. For example, in the verses of Genesis C.1, which you quote, the word for God is in reality, as you probably know, Elohim; ie. a plural="gods" This word occurs hundreds of times in the text of the Hebrew Bible, together with other words for God, (eg. Adonai, etc.). yet, it is nearly always translated as "Lord" or God= singular. This translator effect has given the impression to the masses of a single concept of a monotheistic God at the heart of the Bible whereas the reality is quite different with Yahweh (one of the Elohim) eventually merging as the sole, supreme Deity.
