Same with punctuation.
These differences are a major source of fighting between different religious groups, fighting that has caused many people to be burned at the stake or otherwise killed or maimed as heretics over the centuries.

Have an example of this from the bible?

While foraging I found this link :
Languages of the Bible N.B.
Disclaimer: This site is purely non-sectarian and non-denominational. The author neither promotes nor advocates any one religion or religious sect over the other.

Lord's Prayer in 950 Languages
from the Cloister of the Pater Noster in Jerusalem.
P.S. I was unsure whether to post this in the Bible Study thread but seeing as you got here first I shall gift this to y'all.
regards
