Isn't that observation par for the course for the NIV? No disrepect meant.

Most English translations render Jeremiah 7:22 something like the
following which comes from the NRSV
7 For in the day that I brought your ancestors out of the land of Egypt, I
did not speak to them or command them concerning burnt offerings and
Last night I noticed the NIV inserted ``just'' into this verse
... I did not just speak ... thus changing the entire meaning of
the verse. I see no justification for this in the Hebrew text. It
looks to me the NIV translators thought they would fix up this
verse. Anyone care to comment?
