Only the Hebrew masoret, as verified by the qumran scrolls, is the legitimate text. All others that do not agree with it should correct themselves.
We need to read the plain and simple Hebrew the way it is written rather than dancing around the text, trying to translate or interpret away its raw and simple meaning.
Every place the phrase is found in the Bible, [מאלֹהים] is translated as "from G'd". Why translate this passage differently?
The plain and simple Hebrew:
what is humankind
that shall You think about us
and son of man
that shall You focus on us
And then you lessen him a little
and glory and honour
shall you adorn him
This passage is related to Hosea 2:16.
והיה ביום ההוא
And that day is appointed/existent
declares the LORD
you shall call Me my husband-peer
ולא תקראי לי עוד
and shall you no longer call me
The latter rainד must align to the former rain
If anyone confesses to being a Bible fundamentalist, then you must stay true to being a Bible fundamentalist, and read the Bible as written in the original Hebrew, faithful to its literal grammar and structure, unbiased by latter rains.
It is the latter rains that needs to align with and be biased by the leading/former rain, not the other way around.
כי נתן לכם את המורה לצדקה
As He gives you the leading/former rain in rightful progression
ויורד לכם גשם מורה ומלקוש בראשון
brings down to you a storm of leading/former rain and the latter rain in that of the first/lead.
מורה being the idiomatic "former" rain means "guide", "leader".
You don't modify the Hebrew scriptures to satisfy the theology of your Christian scriptures. You must read the Hebrew independently and then modify your Christian scriptures and theology to satisfy the Hebrew scriptures.
Latter scriptures must be guided and biased by the Hebrew scriptures, not the other way around. IF there is any disagreement or conflicts, the latter scriptures must secede and concede that it is not a latter rain to the leading rain.
If the passage in its original form violates our theology and concept of salvation, then we must modify our theology and salvation to align with the passage. Rather than adding beyond iotas and concepts to modify the original meaning of the passage.
The corollary to these passages
The human race is the chosen race. Jews are merely the people chosen to reveal that fact. Jews are merely the yenta to arrange the marriage of humankind to the Creator. Any theology that proposes that they replace Jews are silly and mindless because why would you focus on being the yenta rather than being the bride?
G'd wants to marry a bride who is smart, spontaneous and independent-minded. A bride who is able to make decisions on her own. If you don't agree, then you must be a misogynist because you prefer your wife to be dumb, submissive, unquestioning, without a mind of her own, fearful of you.
If you have the right and privilege to have a spouse who is smart, spontaneous and independent minded, why would you deprive G'd of such a spouse? Is G'd lesser than you, less privileged than you?
G'd wants His bride to be His equal. Regardless what the singularity theory says, it is not possible for the created to be more intelligent than the creator. So G'd has no choice but to settle for a human race that is just a little lesser, who is asymptotically His equal.
It might take us another 8 billion years, but in the Almighty's plan we will eventually be where He wants us, the human collective, to be.
G'd the intelligent-systems engineer
The ultimate fantasy of a machine-intelligence engineer, is to create a machine-intelligence that will be as intelligent as she is - presuming that she is very smart and intelligent, ... ahem. At every stage, she throws conflicts and failure conditions at her intelligent machine to percolate her machine to higher intelligence and decisions.
So too, G'd throws at the human race, diseases, conflicts, catastrophes, famine, etc, to force us, to coagulate the human network to percolate us to higher collective intelligence and decisions.
is the only interface between Creator and creation. The only path of salvation.
For those who believe in that particular god Jesus, even your god is said to have said
Come unto me all who are heavily burdened, and I shall give you Sabbath.
If you are dynamics systems engineer, you would notice that quiescent or zero points are required and found in every system that needs to achieve stability. In information systems, in electronic circuitry, in chaotic systems, zero quiescent points are necessary for stability and synchronization.
The harshness and rigours of the forces of evolutionary development that G'd forces on humankind in His strategy to achieve a spouse equal to His stature, and then from which we need that hiding place in the Sabbath, a quiescent point independent of time and space.
The Sabbath is the only avenue to achieve salvation for humankind, such that even an atheist who observes Sabbath will have (though unknowingly) a relationship with G'd.
Responsibility of humankind to play-god
It is the expected responsibility for humankind to learn and come to grips that we have to play-god to the Universe, in our responsibility to achieve equality with G'd.
It is we the human collective who decides if killing unborn babies is acceptable. It is we who will decide if gay marriage, human cloning is acceptable. G'd has laid that responsibility on our shoulders.
It is our responsibility to create new life forms, to extend human life and to one day technologically achieve eternal life for the human race. Do not use the allegory of Babel to irrelevantly renege on this responsibility.
We are the co-creators of the Universe
In Genesis 2,
ויכל השמים והארץ
ויכל אלהים ביום השביעי
מלאכתו אשר עשה
וישבת ביום השביעי
מכל מלאכתו אשר עשה
Then completes He the heavens and the earth
and all their forces
and completes G'd on the 7th day
his task/commission which He did
and then rests on the 7th day
from all His task/commission which He did.
[מלאכת] is the participative derivative of [מלאך], where [מלאך] has been erroneously translated with the pagan term "angel". In the original Hebrew of the Bible, there are no "angels", but only commissioners of tasks. [מלא] means "fulfill", to fill up - therefore, "my cup overflows".
[יכל] means completing not finishing. "Complete" as in a "complete" list of inventory.
G'd merely completes His task/commission without finishing creating the Universe. G'd merely made the material available and according to Qabalah tradition scattered that inventory. And we the human race will assemble the Universe to our own volition. There are near infinite, a dynamically-chaotic finite, number of possibilities how we humans will assemble this Universe. It is not a jigsaw puzzle because a jigsaw puzzle implies there is one and only one final outcome dictated by G'd. The outcome and finality of the Universe is determined by us the human collective.
