Paul Changed the Bible? Rabbi Skobac on Paul's misquote of Isaiah 59:20

Rabbi Michael Skobac zones in on Paul's twisting of Isaiah 59:20. This is astounding. Paul appears to have literally changed the words in Isaiah 59:20 in a radical fashion.

“The Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,” [Isaiah 59:20]

Yet Paul in Romans presents the above verse radically different:

and in this way all Israel will be saved. As it is written: "The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob. [Romans 11:26 NIV]

Paul's (MIS) use of Isaiah 59:20

Clarke's commentary on the Bible

Unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob "And shall turn away iniquity from Jacob" - So the Septuagint and St. Paul, Romans 11:26, reading instead of לשבי leshabey and ביעקב beyaacob, והשיב veheshib and מיעקב meyaacob. The Syriac likewise reads והשיב veheshib; and the Chaldee, to the same sense, ולהשיב ulehashib. Our translators have expressed the sense of the present reading of the Hebrew text: "And unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob."

Invitation to Islam
Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.
