Misremembered Bible Quotes: The Lion and the Lamb

We all know that the phrase “God helps those who help themselves” is not in the Bible. It’s one of those false proverbs that people who don’t read the Bible think comes from the Bible. But how many phrases do you think you know of the Bible are actually nothing more than phrases spoken by men? Here’s an example, one that I am often asked about in fact:

“The lion and the lamb shall lie down together.”

The convenient alliteration “lion and lamb” is easy to remember. But it is not out of the Bible, at least not as a direct quote. The phrase goes back at most a few centuries and appears in sermons and commentaries, but never as a direct Bible quote. But because of the picture it paints, and the alliteration of the spoken words said, it took hold and many people assume that is a direct Bible quote. So when they read the actual verse, they can be caught off-guard:

Isaiah 11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

A lion and a lamb do also appear in one verse in Isaiah 65:25, but again, the Bible paints the picture of a wolf and a lamb together:

Isaiah 65:25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.

The force of memory is so strong that many people have emailed me when reading these verses assuming that something happened to their Bibles because it doesn’t match up with what they have heard preached. “The lion and the lamb shall lie together” is an allusion to verses in Isaiah that appeared in sermons and commentaries, but eventually became remembered as Bible quotes. Here is an example. In a few minutes of research this is the oldest quotation of this phrase I found in the commentaries I have easy access to (there may be others that are older, but this one is certainly the oldest well read use):

And peace there shall be no end; this respects both the increase and perpetuity of the peace of Christ’s kingdom. The peace of believers, under the Gospel dispensation, is greater than that of the saints under the legal dispensation, whose sacrifices could not remove a consciousness of sin and its guilt; and who, through various laws threatening with death, were all their lifetime subject to bondage; but great is the peace of New Testament saints, through the blood, righteousness, and sacrifice of Christ, and which may be increased more and more; and in the latter day there will be more peace among themselves; Ephraim shall not envy Judah, nor Judah vex Ephraim; the sticks of Joseph and Judah shall be one nor will there ever be any more discord between Jew and Gentile, the lion and the lamb shall lie down together; there will be no more war among the nations, after the battle of Armageddon; and no more persecution, after the slaughter of the witnesses; and this abundance of peace, spiritual and temporal, will be as long as the moon endures, Ps 72:7 and all this will issue in eternal peace in the world to come:…” -John Gill, comments on Isaiah 9:7, 18th century.

Carefully notice that Dr. Gill includes the phrase but does not offer attribution to the Bible for it. Thus we see Gill’s allusion (not quotation) worked its way into collective memory through other speakers and teachers who used the same (non-Bible) phrase.

  1. These are things I deal with ALOT with people.things people have heard and been told and come to be accepted as truth when they aren’t in the Bible .i think my favorite is GOD put more on you than you can bear.it comes from 1 Corinthians 10 verse 13 but is very wrong.GOD dosent put anything on us HE makes a way of escape for us. It’s so easy for traditions to become accepted as part of GODS word if we don’t study for ourself

    1. It’s called “The Mandela Effect”. Look it up. The verse used to say “..the lion and the lamb..” This article was created by a deceiver. Time to open your eyes, so-called Christians. He that hath an ear to hear, let him hear. YouTube: The Mandela Effect

      1. What is your EVIDENCE that it “used to say” lion and lamb? You call me a deceiver when you are planting the seeds of doubt, saying “yea hath God said.” GE 3:1.

        1. It was the Lion and lamb!! It was a lion David killed it was the Lion that took his sheep. The almighty is the Lion of Judah just as aslan in the the Chronicle s of Narnia portrayed him the lamb is Christ the last sacrifice, the blood of the lamb. When the angel killed the first born in Egypt it was the lambs blood they covered the door with so that the angel would pass over them. It was lion’s were in the den to kill gods profit yet did not harm him and it was the Lion that laid down with the sheep as it was in genesis before sin and being cast out of eden. My Mother was a Quaker Methodist paster, my Grandfater was a dutch Christian reformed pastor, my step mother was a Methodist paster I have read multiple different versions of the Bible. I read and studied revelations around 20 plus times. A wolf hides in sheep’s clothing but never does Christ lay down with the devil. Only the Lion the creator Abba .

          1. Another comment making the assertion that every printed Bible available in the entire world has somehow changed on this verse, without a single shred of evidence. I also have a hard time when someone touts their Bible acumen while referring to the the book of “revelations.” If you don’t know the name of the last book of the Bible, how are we to trust your judgment on on verse from the Old Testament over the evidence of all of the printed Bibles in the world?

        1. And to all commenting here…this is why you must hide the Word of God in your heart. I, too, remember lion, but it doesn’t matter. What does matter are the requirements to spend eternity with Jesus. We must be born again of the water and of the Spirit. The Holy Ghost will guide us until that day. God is true to His Word and if we have studied His Word, He will bring it back to our remembrance, what is necessary for us to live by. Everything else does not matter. God bless you all.

          1. ‘Wolf and lamb’ or ‘lion and lamb’ Why are you all arguing is not the meaning the same. Enemies will and can become friends and live in harmony. ” A child will lead them” Christ.

      2. I cannot believe people actually fall for this mandella nonsense. This mandella garbage is nothing more than a demonic psyop on peoples minds to deceive.

      3. I don’t know what the Mandela Effect” is but the verse reads ‘the wolf and the lamb. Unless someone snuck into my house and changed a very old bible I have, then the verse reads the wolf and the lamb.

        1. You don’t understand the Mandella Effect. The Mendella Effect claims that through quantum effects, time is altered, which alters our perception of time. However, memory is so strong, that it is not always altered.

          So basically, the claim would be. The bible originally said the “Lion and the lamb”. Then there was a quantum disturbance, which disturbs our timeline. Somehow, the result of that disturbance was that the verse was changed to “Wolf and the lamb”. This alters all of history after that point. Most people have no strong memory of the original event, so to those people, for all of history it was “Wolf and the lamb”. However, for people who had a strong memory of it for some reason (maybe a verse of special significance to some past tragedy), their memory isn’t altered, and they remember the event as it was in the original timeline, not as it was in the current timeline.

          Basically, it is the universe changing past events to correct for something, which would be like time travel, except nothing is actually sent back in time.

          In other words, when Marty went back in time in Back to the Future II, he changed events by taking the sports almanac (which Biff stole and gave to his past self). When Marty returned to the altered timeline, he knew it was wrong, and remembered all the events of his original timeline. But others around him only knew of the current timeline. Then he had to go back to repair the timeline.

          The Mandella Effect is like that, but doesn’t require any physical time travel. It is the result of a quantum change that has some effect of the property of either time, or reality (other dimensions merging together).

          1. And your evidence that these supposed events changing time cannot change some people’s memory of the events is…. that some people don’t remember it the same. Why do you think anyone should take you seriously? Your evidence that these things happened is just some people’s spotty memory. Your evidence that memory can be immune to these effects, where the books on your shelf are not immune to those effects, is that you remember something different than what the books say. You can’t see how completely bonkers this is?

  2. All great points.

    Unfortunately, we Christians will have to deal with this more and more in the future, as people keep getting dumber all the time.

    Even so, come Lord Jesus!

  3. If read with discernment Isaiah 6:6,7,8,9 does say that Wolves,Lions, Lambs,leopards,kids,calves,cows, bears, will feed, play and lie down together. Nothing will destroy in all of Gods Holy Mountain.
    What does it matter if we don’t quite remember the exact quote as long as we understand the meaning. Love,and Peace eternally(even between child and animals), for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord. Nothing will hurt or destroy in Gods righteous kingdom.

    1. What matters is that some people think their King James Bibles have been changed under their noses. This is just another way of casting doubt on the veracity of God’s word. And of course the exact readings matter. Do you have a Scriptural authority for saying that we shouldn’t care about how God gave the words, and that we are free to ignore them in favor of a generalized “message” we prefer?

    2. It matters a great deal IF you believe what “the Lord God Almighty” saith about HIS WORD – for the promise is given unto those will accept it:
      “THAT I MIGHT MAKE THEE KNOW THE CERTAINTY OF THE WORDS OF TRUTH;
      that thou mightest answer THE WORDS OF TRUTH to them that send unto thee?”
      (Proverbs 22:21 ~ AV)

      – AND the statement written in the Holy Bible [AV]:
      “EVERY WORD OF GOD IS PURE:
      he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
      ADD THOU NOT UNTO HIS WORDS, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.”
      (Proverbs 30:5-6 ~ AV) + Psalm 12:6-8 [AV]
      .

  4. Could you kindly look into this verse Luke 5:37 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.

    As far as I can remember back in my younger days the word “bottles” should be “wineskins”, otherwise the verse does not make any sense. Bottles don’t burst. easily like wineskins.

    I found this in my recently bought KJV (Thomas Nelson) with a note at the end of the verse: wineskins be ruined. Another KJV of mine, the 1611 400th anniversary (Oxford) fascimile copy also has the words “bottles”.

    Which one is correct?

      1. BOTTLES is a word switch. My 1967 AKJV still has old wineskins. You do not break a bottle by overfilling it. Our Bibles are under attack. JESUS CHRIST is the WORD OF GOD. The Bible is a BOOK, and subject to the elements of this world. WAKE UP! THE KJV now has DOCTRINAL, SPELLING, GRAMMAR, PUNCTUATION errors, and nonsense verses.

        1. Your “1967 AKJV” is probably a “New Scofield Reference Bible” which is neither Scofield or King James. You could save yourself a lot of trouble by just looking up the word “bottle” in a good dictionary. Bottles can be made of more than just glass. The word is bottle.

          1. I rebuke your ignorance and lies in the Name of Jesus!!!!! The end times are near and his people are on alert!!! We have hidden his words in our heart and we are sober minded as to what is going on!

          2. If you only have your own fallible memory as your final authority you have no foundation for rebuking anyway. You Mandela effect people have sent me a mountain of hate mail and not a single rational explanation of what you believe. You can’t remember a verse correctly so you think the whole Universe has been twisted inside-out. You have no final authority but your own fallible mind.

          3. Question. Does the Bible say God’s name is Jealous? or just that he is a jealous God?

          4. Exodus 34:14 (KJV) For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

        2. you have obviously never made any wine.. If you put new wine in a bottle and don’t release the pressure often the bottle will explode. try it sometime if you are brave enough

        1. As I said, you guys could save yourself a lot by just opening a dictionary. Here is the FIRST definition of bottle (n2) from the Oxford English Dictionary:

          1. a.1.a A vessel with a narrow neck for holding liquids, now usually made of glass; originally of leather.

          Do you see that? ORIGINALLY OF LEATHER. Your private definition of “bottle” is an anachronism.

          Now I am sure some of these Mandela effect people will tell me that not only did someone change “wineskins” to “bottle,” they went and edited the OED, too!

          1. Yes, that is exactly what the Mandela Effect would do. It would alter reality so that dictionaries change, past usage changes, EVERYTHING could change!

    1. WINE SKINS IT WAS ALWAYS WINE SKINS NEVER EVER IN THE KJV BIBLE SAID BOTTLES. Also in genesis 1:1 ….God created the heavens now says heaven. I looked into a 170 year old KJV and everything changed there to. It was lions not wolf. Some people hardly read bibles anymore so they turn all this into something stupid like secular quotes or what ever. Most ibibles are changing in thin air but there will be those who know not much of what some or much of veresus anyway. Study folks research bible words have changed blame it on satan and CERN what ever.

      1. So confused. You make these proclamations with no evidence. The King James Bible has BOTTLES. Modern CORRUPTIONS, even some that put “King James” on their spine, say “wine skins.” Instead of looking at a dictionary you think the whole Universe has been changed on you. Lunacy!

  5. This is a wonderful bible reference thank you for the insight. Recently people have been saying there is a thing called the mandella effect that is responsible for these changes, it had me concerned. Thanks for clearing that nonsense up just more of Satan’s old tricks. Lol!

    1. The “mandella effect” is a bizarre science fiction/fantasy theory being used to ask “yea, hath God said” just as the serpent did in Genesis 3:1. It’s one of the stranger ways I have seen people get out of having a final authority. People would rather believe that the pages on their King James Bible have been altered on their shelves while they slept, rather than accept that their memory is faulty or that they took a sermon or song and “remembered” it as Scripture when it was not… whatever you can do to make your own mind your final authority seems to be what people want.

      1. Brandon your head is up your 4th point of contact you’re merely chirping like a canary. “No prophecy of scripture is of any private interpretation”
        You are dumber than a pet rock if you support and uphold that carnal brain of yours. We’re in the strong delusion knuckle head “lying signs and wonders” I suppose you believe the garden of eve apple version fable also huh

        1. Let’s just be clear. You don’t believe God could preserve his word. You think that all of our King James Bibles were silently, magically altered in the night. Since you “remember” verses differently than they are actually PRINTED, you assume the whole universe is under some kind of spell that has changed all the King James Bibles. And you think I am “dumber than a pet rock?”

          1. Brandon, just for the record here, you’re a super guy and I’m sincerely thankful for you, including your intellect, patience and example. These days we’re living in… ‘all we like sheep’, perhaps even more stupid. Cheers.

    2. Unfortunately there are a constantly increasing number of people who say that they are Christians – But are making the personal choice to believe in the Satanically inspired and led ‘Mandela-Effect’ – an OCCULT Religious Belief \ Doctrine \ Philosophy – The following is an excerpt from an article ‘online’
      – ‘Did You Know There’s A Term For When You’re Totally Positive Something Happened Even Though It Didn’t?
      It’s called the ‘Mandela-Effect’ – and a lot of people think it’s proof of an alternate universe.
      – The ‘Mandela-Effect’ is a theory put forth by writer and “paranormal consultant” Fiona Broome that shared false memories are in fact glimpses into parallel worlds with different timelines.’

  6. Another one is ‘Spare the rod and spoil the child’, but if you read Proverbs 13:24; “He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.” People seem to like the first one better though, possibly because they spared the rod on their children and can’t figure out why they are in trouble now.

    1. Umm, that statement makes no sense. The proverb you quoted is in AGREEMENT with Proverbs 13:24.
      It means, IF you spare the rod, THEN the result will be that you have spoiled, i.e., ruined, the child. Anyone using this phrase knows bloody well why a child who was spared the rod would turn out poorly; they’re not scratching their heads over it as you seem to think.

  7. Brandon, sadly youre wrong! Mandela effect is real and for you to say otherwise is crazy. I remember a verse saying Love is the greatest command but now its Charity. Jesus wanted us to Love not to do charity.

    1. It has always been Charity in the King James. Charity is a beautiful word that means more than love. You are working with a faulty definition of “charity.” In the Bible, it is not about charity in the sense of non-taxable transactions like we use it today. It means Christian brotherly love in action. Regardless, if you believe your Bible has been changed on the shelf by some science fiction fantasy called the “Mandela effect” then you have only your own mind as your final authority and don’t believe God is capable of preserving his word.

    2. Charity by definition is love. Agape love. Modern English describes charity as something akin to giving to the poor. 16th century English had a much broader meaning for charity: In a general sense, love, benevolence, good will; that disposition of heart which inclines men to think favorably of their fellow men to think favorably of their fellow men, and to do them good. In a theological sense, it includes supreme love to God, and universal good …

  8. There is a video by someone “on YouTube” that states that our bibles have been changed. Come on give me a break! Basically they are saying God is so weak that demons floated in our houses and changed the word of God. Please don’t listen to everything people say! God Bless you all.

    1. Exactly. This kind of bizarre nonsense is just another way to cast doubt on God’s word. People pushing these theories have only their own mind as their final authority.

      1. Some of scriptures art changed….. we now pray the Lord in truth and spirit….. the Law is written upon the tables on our hearts

        1. All you have is an incorrect memory of a verse. That doesn’t mean the whole universe was altered while you slept. Be rational! If you can’t find your keys where you think you left them it doesn’t mean someone came into your house and hid them from you. It means you forgot where they were.

    2. Not demons, the merging of multiple … oh forget it. You won’t believe me anyways even though string theory has been proven. Galaxies collide so why can’t universes do the sane within the multiverse. Just saying.

      1. I like science fiction as much as the next guy, but I recognize the operative word FICTION. If you believe there is a “multiverse” that God cannot control and that his words are being altered by “colliding universes” then perhaps you would be more at home with a Star Trek novelization than the Bible.

  9. I have a concern, the verse in revelation about deleting or adding from God’s Word…, those of us who who bought these altered versions under the assumption they were authentic translations. Are we under that curse? And what should we do with them? I’ve purchased several versions for bible study and reading, such as KJV, NLT, ESV, NKJV, HCB, & TLB. I’m definitely keeping and using the KJV from this point on. Goid is awesome

    1. First of all, there is no way possible for a born-again Christian to lose his salvation. Let’s just get that out there.

      Secondly, I don’t think naïvely using modern Bible translations count as messing with God’s word. Many of us came out of modernism, including myself. Those “translators” will have a lot to answer for, no doubt, but there is no danger of loss of salvation for a Church age believer, period.

      1. Thanks for all you do. Yes, those devout men that did the translation for King James wanted to be as accurate as they could, as they really feared God. The Satanic realms have indeed done everything they could to dilute, detour, and destroy the True Church.
        However, regarding some prevalent doctrines:
        What part of the Scripture did you miss where Paul and the writer of Hebrews warn of quenching the Spirit, whereby one loses the Salvation that only comes by faith. The point being: if one has no faith, and no corresponding actions they are lost. If all saints were perfectly preserved, then why does the Scripture warn those bodies. Why would a Church, a part of the Body have its lampstand removed, and Jesus is outside the door knocking? Why does Paul warn about the natural branches broken off to the wild ones that are merely grafted on? The OSAS doctrine, (along with the idea of an anytime any moment First Resurrection) is almost heresy. (I’m not so dogmatic as some, but it is problematic.)

        I know the Calvinists would say, ‘They never were saved”, but then why would Paul exhort us to ‘examine ourselves’ to see that we’re in the Spirit, the only One that is Jesus/God within us that will seal us for that Day. (Sorry if I rambled on, but feel this is a mission.)

        1. You are very confused about salvation if you think it can be lost. You can’t earn it — you certainly can’t keep it. What you call “heresy” is the only thing that makes sense — we have to trust entirely on Christ’s finished work, and not at all in any of our works. I have posed this for you: Once saved always saved?

      2. I have been following these threads, Brandon and I just wanted to say that you are right on point and I support your rebuttals 100% and thank you for your due diligence!

  10. Eph.6:12
    For we wrestle not against flesh, and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    And WE must put on The Whole Armor of God! (my comment in agreement with The Lord our God)

    1. Amen Sharmaine. As a matter of fact I’m studying the “”Full Armor of God” now. What each piece represents, how Paul received this vision in detail from GOD, EVERY detail about the Armor Of GOD I want and need to know. I KNOW I am a full blown out Christian lady and I know I put my Armor of God on everyday. We all have to or we wouldn’t be able to fight off all the demons and the devil, it would be a losing battle for us without our Armor of God on!!!

  11. I think the lion and lamb saying comes from the song “Peace In The Valley.” You have to be careful not to get your doctrine from songs, or at least make sure they line up with scripture. A good example is “Lily of the Valley” In Song of Solomon the reference is clearly to the Church, not to Christ. It is the bride (The Church) making the statement “I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.” not the bridegroom.

  12. Regardless of what you believe, I am shocked by the meanness in some of these comments. If you have read the Word of God you would know the importance of words and the power of the “mouth”. I pray that we would all change our speech be it through spoken words or typed. God bless

    1. And, Sister Cathline Johnson, in this year 2018, what you said in 207 is STILL true. Lord help us ALL! Amen, and God’s blessings to you

  13. Instead of debating this, Anthony Patch who is a reborn born again christian has been studying this phenomenon for years. He comes from a Christian scientific perspective. Yes, being loving and kind to one another in the midst of all of this is the most important thing we can do.

    1. Amen. You are so very correct Ann. I too have been studying much of Anthony Patch’s work. Everyone on this blog should look him up and research his work as well. You can also go to a video on U-Tube (one of many) that discuss the Mandela Effect, biblical changes and much more. (2018) Biblical Changes, Mind Control & the Quantum Effect. The video addresses all of these issues being discussed herein. From there, you will have volumes & volumes of information on subjects as these which can answer many questions you may already have and you will have opened your mind up to innumerable more questions regarding these perilous times we’re in. So many things are happening all around us, I encourage everyone to watch, read and learn, study. And I feel compelled to say …..the lion will lay down with the lamb. Thank you dear Heavenly Father for forever burning Your Word into my heart and mind so that I may know Your Word and for giving me eyes that I may see and for ears that I may hear …

  14. Proof:
    that “the lion shall lay down with the Lamb” is the correct scripture.
    when they travelled back in time and changed the bible.
    they couldn’t change online posts re: the scripture.
    so while the bible changed it didn’t change people who posted the scripture online with pictures of lions and lambs.
    In revelations, it talks about the great deception that will come on the world.
    Folks its begun. if you didn’t know that scripture cause it was written on your heart. You are in trouble. They are changing the very word of our Lord.
    i can give you examples of five more things they have changed in the bible now.
    its getting bad pray that our Lord returns to punish the heritics changing our Bibles.
    why does it matter they changed lion and lamb to wolves and lamb.
    because lion represents our lord and savior, lambs are his church,
    wolves represent satan. and lambs are the church. God forbid we would lay down with Satan.

    1. We as Christians referenced as “sheep” but not usually as lambs. Jesus, on the other hand, is referenced as the Lamb of God who was slain for the sins of the world. But Jesus is also reference as the Lion of Judah who shall rule and reign forever and ever! It most likely always said the wolf and the lamb and many people are mis-remembering. Perhaps being confused by a song or a sermon heard in the past like the one below:
      The Lion and the Lamb
      He’s coming on the clouds, kings and kingdoms will bow down
      And every chain will break, as broken hearts declare His praise
      Who can stop the Lord Almighty?
      Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah
      He’s roaring with power and fighting our battles
      And every knee will bow before You
      Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain
      For the sin of the world, His blood breaks the chains
      And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb
      Oh every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb
      So open up the gates, make way before the King of kings
      Our God who calls the saved is here to set the captives free
      Who can stop the Lord Almighty?
      Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah
      He’s roaring with power and fighting our battles
      And every knee will bow before You
      Our God…
      Think about it…..

  15. This site is lying… It has always been until the Mandela Effect, been, The Lion Shall Lay Down With the Lamb… The Lion of Judah with the Lamb of Christ which is both representing Christ. Lamb when he came into the world to heal with his gentle and strong ways, then when he returns as the LION of JUDAH to make right the evil on this planet. Look up the Mandela Effect, It is known that the reason why some people are misremembering it to be the Wolf and the Lamb is because things have been altered DELIBERATELY. Can you imagine, some remember it being a Snake and a Lamb… It makes no sense to be a wolf and a lamb u unless it “little red ridding hood” Meaning It is Christ’s journey as a Lamb initially to do his ministry and then his return will be for JUSTICE against Darkenss.. Let NO Man add to or take away from his words which are being done left and right… Lion makes PERFECT sense.. He was/IS the Lion of Juday !!!! Many other scriptures have been tampered with and anyone on this site that says it was always a Wolf had their memories tampered with… Just research the Mandela Effect. I have a Bible from when a little girl and it always said Lion and Lamb…..

    1. Also through subliminal in movies it has been changed, mocking Christ IE: in Twilight Vampire Movie.. He says Lion Fell in Love with the Lamb.. Always Mocking true scripture.. Get with it people….. Soon more will be changed in the words of the bible.. Just like the “Lords Prayer” never debts and debtors, always it was forgive me my trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.. Lots has been removed, vanished mysteriously and even scholars have notice and counted how many words have bene changed MYSTERIOUSLY , in their words which as you know scientists and scholars don’t use the word mystery much.. Its all cut and dry except even they are noticing and also those that are not young pip-squeaks who profess to know all when they are just wet behind the ears. Check out CERN and the Mandela Effect

  16. By the way George, I don’t know that song, nor listened to Christian songs such as the one you mentioned but The Lion and Lamb came from actual scriptures for me, from the actual Bible. But to the rest, the Bibles have been changed, even ones from 1611 have been changed as well..SUPERNATURALLY.. IE: there are some that have most of the original translations and who have read say from the 1611 version, very untainted version and when shows examples on Youtube how once a scripture that they read over and over for years actually changed in just days… YES Mysteriously changing before his eyes… This Mandela Effect will trick many into believing things were always written a certain way when they were not originally. Can you imagine changing and taking away Christ’s Divinity as the returning Lion (King) of Judah to a Wolf.. Wow, talk about making him look like a liar instead of the symbolism of King… King of Judah… Makes sense he came as a Lamb to Heal, but will Return as a Lion of Judah to Make right the abominations that has transpired through the earth… Then after his return when the healing takes place, that the Lion and Lamb can sit together in PEACE without harm to one another and throughout his whole land.. Now Wolf and Lamb makes no sense when you think about it because it really was never Wolf and Lamb… And King of Animals is always been called the Lion, but symbolically is the King of Judah, it has Always been Lion and Lamb to the point that statues were showing Lion and Lamb always, even ones you can purchase now.. The problem with the Mandela Effect is they are still working out kinks in changing the words of God, eventually hoping to delete it completely out.so there will be no residual evidence

  17. Remember is the last days darkness will be upon the whole earth, GOD is NOT weak but there is a short period that even the very Elect of God would be deceived.. YES Bible verses have been changed. Modernism isn’t a good thing by the way… Pip Squeaks always think they know more then those that were learned long before they came along. Another example of sons and daughters rising up against parents for their names sake… Yes… be careful about modernism… Its very misleading and words MATTER.. The Bible said DO NOT ADD TO or TAKE AWAY from HIS World and HE MEANT IT

  18. I used to read the lion will lay down with the lamb and quote it because that was always a special one for me, also videos and songs reading it as well so it’s interesting that they changed the wording as lion and wolf are so spiritually symbolically different! The word stuff is now in bible and everyone remembers wine skins. I know it’s a distraction and enemy can cause confusion and I’ve seen this happen. My friends mom used to have a lion lamb figurine I always admired.

  19. I would swear it was ‘lion’ if asked but this mandela effect talk got me to question stuff so now I ask this: why would the ‘lion’ be mentioned twice, if it is indeed ‘lion’ lays down with the lamb? All the pictures out there that show a lion with a lamb, that needs some explaining, but is some popular quote got started using lion, and people just assumed that’s what they read in the bible, when in fact, few have actually read the bible. Surely there should be actual video of people reading that passage way back before? Can someone find anything? Also, I do remember something from perhaps school days back 70’s where the new translations altered loads of stuff to be ‘modern’ ized and use words we today would understand rather than the oldy worldy ancient ‘proper’ text xlation. Food for thought?

  20. Lion as in Lion of Judah? We know who that is.
    Lamb as in Lamb of God? We know who that is.

    Lamb of God has come and will open the Seals.
    Lion has yet to come and rule in the Mellinium.

    Both are same Jesus.

  21. The wolf and lamb does makes sense. In this part of the chapt each animal is coupled with that one which is its natural prey. A fit state of things under the “Prince of Peace” (Isa 65:25; Eze 34:25; Ho 2:18). These may be figures for men of corresponding animal-like characters (Eze 22:27; 38:13; Jer 5:6; 13:23; Mt 7:15; Lu 10:3). Still a literal change in the relations of animals to man and each other, restoring the state in Eden, is a more likely interpretation. Compare Ge 2:19, 20, with Ps 8:6-8, which describes the restoration to man, in the person of “the Son of man,” of the lost dominion over the animal kingdom of which he had been designed to be the merciful vicegerent under God, for the good of his animal subjects (Ro 8:19-22).

    No nefarious supernatural change happened in scripture to do with this verse.

    The wolf… the leopard… the young lion… the bear are the only ferocious animals of Palestine, where the tiger, the crocodile, the alligator, and the jaguar are unknown. That the Palestinian bear was carnivorous, and a danger to man, appears by Lamentations 3:10; Daniel 7:5; Amos 5:19. A little child shall lead them. Man’s superiority over the brute creation shall continue, and even be augmented. The most powerful beasts shall submit to the control of a child.

    The point of the passage in question is that; There will be harmony in creation. Scripture is beautiful!

    1. Finding your articulate, rational comment amidst this deluge of ignorant sentimentality reminds me of the old story of the little girl excitedly shoveling her way through an enormous pile of horse manure. When asked why in the world she would do such a thing, she answered enthusiastically, “I just KNOW there’s a pony in here someplace!”

      Many thanks for providing the pony.

  22. Someone referenced Gill earlier referring to the lion and a lamb quote from him.

    Interestingly enough in Gill’s commentary of this passage he writes:

    “Isaiah 11:7, describe the peaceableness of the Messiah’s kingdom; and which the Targum introduces in this manner,

    “in the days of the Messiah of Israel, peace shall be multiplied in the earth.”

    The wild and tame creatures shall agree together, and the former shall become the latter; which is not to be understood literally of the savage creatures, as if they should lose their nature, and be restored, as it is said, to their paradisiacal estate, which is supposed to be the time of the restitution of all things; but figuratively of men, comparable to wild creatures, who through the power of divine grace, accompanying the word preached, shall become tame, mild, meek, and humble; such who have been as ravenous wolves, have worried Christ’s sheep, made havoc of them, breathing out slaughter and threatenings against them, as did Saul, through converting grace, become as gentle and harmless as lambs, and take up their residence in Christ’s fold, and dwell with, yea, some of them even feed, Christ’s lambs and sheep, as the above mentioned person: ”

    What a beautiful time this will be to exist in Gods creation!

    Let us not lose sight of what is meant here, and in difficult passages, allow scripture to interpret scripture. Be steadfast and patient, pray and study and the truth will set you free.

  23. Brandon, I read all of your posts here and I AGREE WHOLEHEARTEDLY!! I am a Christian, who has fortunately sat under great KJV Bible preachers and teachers for years. YEARS AGO I remember our pastor quoting this Isaiah 11:6 verse and taking us to it. He asked how many of us thought it was lion and lamb. we were surprised that it said wolf. Then he explained as this post did. If I have always been in the Word, and still have to go to the text sometimes myself, it is amazing that people in this world who have never even CLAIMED to be saved are now experts in it. :/ Also, you had people using perversions and going by these man made books that completely butchered it from cover to cover, but now they are UP IN OURS BECAUSE ONE WORD HAS CHANGED? COME ON… And those of you who were true Bible believers, shame on your for believing your GOD IS THIS WEAK!!!! YOU WAKE UP!!! My God MADE this universe out of NOTHING, He SAVED MY SOUL AND WILL KEEP ME, He DEFEATED SATAN ON THE CROSS, He was born of a VIRGIN, He has the keys of death, hell AND THE GRAVE, He is COMING BACK, AND HE WILL PRESERVE HIS WORD! I don’t care how many imps of hell the cern lets out or how many dimensions they pull out of or how much time travel they do, or if the sun is a different sun now, or we really died in 2012, or whatever else New AGE OCCULT GARBAGE THEY ARE POLLUTING OUR MINDS WITH! GOD IS GO OF THE UNIVERSE AND HIS WORD IS PURE, AND IT IS PERFECT, AND IT IS ETERNAL. I’m sorry. but these people who are thinking this garbage were either reading a polluted translation to begin with or sorry scoffield notes, or just plain didn’t hide God’s Word in their heart correctly. I know they are playing with us on this stuff. No doubt about that. Who is at the top of google, face book, the media, etc. They have technology now that can duplicate a voice, exactly. They can use holograms, etc. Satan is a deceiver and a liar. But there is no much new age vile in this mandela effect thing that it stinks to high heaven. God IS IN CONTROL. THEY ARE LITTLE PEONS. HIS WORD IS SECURE. YOU CAN “BANK” ON THAT. Those people that want to talk about the word “bank”. Ask God to help you discern this mess. He did me. Mainly by what he TEACHES IN HIS WORD. Goodnight all.

  24. The only reason the “Mandela effect” is getting any traction among Christians is because we’ve grown up through a multigenerational attack on God’s pure words the KJB. The “Mandela effect” was started in the garden of Eden, and has had many contributors (Jehudi, Westcott &Hort, Nestles-Aland, etc) up to this present day. Every one of us has heard Scripture passages quoted from pulpits, radio, video, and even each other from multiple “versions” of God’s word. Before learning the truth about God’s preservation of His pure words. I spent over 25 yrs hearing multiple (sometimes contradictory) Scripture quotations. I’m still working through re-memorizing verses I knew from corrupt translations.

    “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them O LORD thou shalt preserve the from this generation for ever”

    If you believe the above Scripture, and you’re still getting sidelined by the “Mandela effect”. Turn off your YouTube videos and tap into the pure water of God’s preserved words in English. The KJB!

      1. When a church gets as deeply divided like this and you don’t know which side you are supposed to be on anymore, the best thing to do is hear what known enemies are saying and spreading and do the exact opposite. I still considered myself to be a Christian all while heavily involved in the new age metaphysical occult. God opened my eyes to the lie it is. He brought me to His Word. I trust it. All this Mandela effect stuff is a path that leads right back to the occult. It’s a path I refuse to get on again. Stay strong Brandon and don’t give in. You are defending God’s Word and getting spit in the face for it. Praise God!

  25. I guess hundreds upon hundreds of years and millions of Christians around the globe are all wrong with thier memory .

    What’s gets me is those who can’t believe in the concept it changed by some force unknown to us. But believe in stories typed in a book about a force unknown .

    Maybe God changed it to weed out the easyly fooled fools in his flock.

    1. Again, nothing more than guesses on your part… I know who gave us the Bible (it’s not an “unknown force”). Do you know these “millions of Christians around the globe” who are convinced the Bible used to say “the lion and the lamb?” And what an utterly foolish statement to say the God changed his own word to “weed out” people. God is NOT A LIAR. What blasphemy.

      1. We walk by faith and not by sight. It’s a lot easier to accept what you see isn’t it…. those of us who are clinging to the truth have to walk by faith now in an ever-changing world where reality is being distorted pray for eyes to see and ears to hear.
        I believe Jesus is a descendant of the tribe of Judah…

        I believe that one day the lion will lie down with the lamb…

        I believe that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life…

        I believe you can’t pour new wine into old wineskins…

        I believe Jesus Christ is the Word of God made flesh…

        I believe that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…

        I believe that Moses delivered the 10 Commandments on stone tablets…

        I believe that anything standing in disagreement with the things I just mentioned is not based in Truth…not because I remember them as having always been this way but because the Holy Spirit that dwells within me confirms these things have always been this way. I have seen this effect for what it is…there is deception in it as there is in all things. But it has drawn me into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ than I have ever had in my life. I’ll leave it with the words of the prophet Isaiah 55:8-9…God’s thoughts and ways are not our thoughts and ways. Consider the possibility that the spirit of the Antichrist is at work even now and know that there is a call being placed upon many who haven’t heard the call.

  26. The wolf is not a figure I remember from the passage. However, the “lion and the lamb” is honestly what I recall. If I were pulled from my bed in the middle of the night and asked to recite the passage that’s what I would say in a heartbeat without even thinking because it is ingrained in my heart. Maybe I’m wrong, I can accept that, my spirit is flawed which is why I need Jesus as my Savior. What bothers me is how many others don’t remember it this way either, and I do not believe those in the Spirit are liars nor do they have malice to lie about something so tied to their Faith in the WORD. I don’t know why this is happening, but I can sense something ominous is occurring to other believers too and know that there would great deceivers as foretold in the end of days.

    I pray for God’s mercy on us all
    In Christ Jesus Lord Almighty’s Name
    Amen

  27. Ok, so someone or some group went back in time and changed the original manuscript before it was translated into English.
    That’s the only way all the bibles in the world could have been mysteriously changed overnight.
    Is this what this Mandela Effect is saying ?
    It sounds like the start of a pretty good SCI FI movie to me.

    1. “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”
      (1 John 5:7)

      There is little need for demonic time-travelling to be employed to alter and interfere with the Word of God, the simple evidence of man’s hatred and intollerance of revealled truth uses the simplest of methods…ommission.

  28. My KJV says wolf, bottles, stuff, and Lion of Judah and the lamb. The Mandela effect is just Satan trying to trick people. Don’t listen to the enemy. He comes to destroy and devour, steal and kill. Thank you Brandon ?
