The Old Testament Hebrew Lexicon
| Strong's Number: 8675||Stem and Mood|
| ||Additional Information
In the Hebrew Bible, the scribes did not alter any text they felt had been copied incorrectly. Rather they noted in the margin what they thought the written text should be. The written variation is called a kethiv and the marginal note is called the qere. Where the translators of the Authorised Version followed the qere reading rather than the kethiv, we indicate the kethiv reading by the number 08675.
For example, in Gen. 24:33 "was set" is coded as 07760 08675 03455. The translators used the qere reading that has Strong's number 07760 but the kethiv reading is Strong's number 03455. Both words have the same meaning, "was set".
