Theologians have been meeting for 15 years to revise the Revised
Standard Version the Bible.  The New Revised Standard Version (or
NRSV) will be published in 1990.

Among the changes are two that were made to avoid possible

Psalm 50:9 is being changed from "I will accept no bull from your
house" to "I will not accept a bull from your house."

2 Corinthians 11:25 is being changed from "Once I was stoned" to
"Once I received a stoning."

Strange but true.
