No, not from the Catholic Bible to a Protestant one, but rather from one translation to another.
I downloaded and started with a Douay-Rheims version. All you need to know about this one is that when speaking of how old Abram was when he first became a father, it was written this way:
four score and six years
And with that, I went looking for a translation that felt that '86' was sufficient.
If you know me IRL, you know I like things as simple as possible. And while I have nothing against Misters Douay and Rheims, I am quite sure their translation is not for me.
I wish I could say I trusted myself to try again, but I did not. (I also did not realize that I could download samples to my Kindle before purchasing!) I called Katie and she helped me out. I decided on The Ignatius Bible, that not only includes the Apocropha but also the Deuterocanonical Books (if you have a better link for this one, please share)! And guess what? It also says that Abram was eight-six years old when Ish'mael was born.
What else stood out to me in tonight's reading?
My goodness a lot happens in Genesis! Creation, Cain and Abel, The Flood, Sarai an Abram - and we're not finished yet! I've read Genesis before (in the past I've made it to Numbers or Leviticus before giving up) an this is one thing that never ceases to amaze me. So many of the 'well-known' stories happen so quickly, it makes me wonder what other great stories I might be missing. I guess I'm soon to find out.
