This is my first post here. I just wanted to let BibleWorks know of a typo in the Douay-Rheims, to wit:

5 As birds dying, so will the Lord of hosts protect Jerusalem, protecting and delivering, passing over and saving. (Isa 31:5 DRA)

I believe this should be "birds flying," which makes more sense! I checked this in my hard copy first, just to make sure :-).

Yours,

Welcome to the forums, Stardoe! That's a good catch. The Vulgate, which Douay-Rheims is translating, has "sicut aves volantes," so yes, no doubt about it.
