Translating exercise
Though completely unscientific it would an interesting exercise to take a quote from the bible, and using babelfish or google translate translate the quote through 4 or 5 languages and then back to english. I would imagine it lose most if not all its initial meaning.

My guess is that if their ever was an original "version" it bears little resemblance (at least in context) to the english versions of today.
