comment What translation best translates the word “vanity” (in the KJV) in Ecclesiastes?
Yes, I mean the Hebrew. I don't believe it is linguistically accurate to claim that a word carries all its meanings or even connotations of all its meanings in all contexts.

comment What translation best translates the word “vanity” (in the KJV) in Ecclesiastes?
I'm not sure it's linguistically sound to confute the definitions of vanity. That is, I do not believe that the concern for appearance definition informs the meaningless definition. Also you don't give evidence from the original language for your take on how the passage should be translated.

comment What is the third heaven that Paul mentions in 2 Corinthians 12:2?
I've looked at both references twice and I'm still not sure what subset of those passages you are referring to. Would you mind adding quotations from them to your answer?

comment Meaning of “Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather.”
I read the Greek text for 26-28, and though I have an appreciation for idiomatic translation, the Message has taken too much freedom with these verses to be of use in discussing their meaning. It may or may not be a correct interpretation, but that the passage means what the Message gives it to mean must be demonstrated from another source than the Message.
