* The Douay-Rheims version is an English translation of the Latin Vulgate, which was the RCC's official Bible for centuries. That version makes it clear, as the NAB does not, that the death penalty was reserved for cases in which the mother died. If the fetus died and the mother lived, the penalty was a fine only. The newer RCC Bible, the NAB, muddles this issue by substituting the vague "injury" for "her death." Professor Kugel corroborates this difference in his book (p.267). The LXX, an ancient Bible still used by Eastern Orthodox churches, and the Jewish Tanakh also make the distinction clear.

* An apologist says that in Genesis 6:3, "God was making a prophecy about the future, not setting the limit at that moment. The verse says that man's days 'shall be' 120 years, not that they already are." It's true that lives got shorter after the flood. However, many generations later, Moses' ancestors still exceeded 120 years: Levi, 137; Kohath, 133; Amram (Moses' father), 137. Also, Phinehas, Aaron's grandson, lived approx. 450 yrs. (see EXO 6:25 & JUDG 20:28). - p.b.
