A biblical reference should NEVER EVER be translated back into the original - Hebrew. A proper translator takes the Bible and copies the exact citation. Nobody could ever write Hebrew as beautifully as our forefathers did. Moreover, the Bible's translation into English is very poor and incorrect (to quote the great Bible scholars). Giving the citation's location was very clever in ensuring the utmost "translation" or, in fact, the proper "quotation".

    Always good to give the exact location of any biblical verse, whatever the language pair is, to ensure the translator
