Weird HCSB difference in Kindle Version (Matt 1:12)

I just discovered in my “[Holman CSB Bible]( Bible-ebook/dp/B0011TMNZ4/)” on Kindle, that Matt. 1:12 seems like a hybrid between the 2004 and 2009 revisions of the HCSB text. (I don’t actually have a Kindle device, I just use Kindle on the iPhone and on the Mac.)In my HCSB 2004 revision (first edition), Matt 1:12 goes like this:

Then after the exile to BabylonJechoniah fathered Salathiel,

Salathiel fathered Zerubbabel,

In the 2009 edition HCSB (in Accordance Bible Software), it’s slightly different:

Then after the exile to BabylonJechoniah fathered Shealtiel,

Shealtiel fathered Zerubbabel,

But the Kindle CSB Bible (from 2007) is a mix of these two:

Then after the exile to Babylon
Jechoniah fathered Shealtiel,
Salathiel fathered Zerubbabel,

(Bold emphasis added by me.)

I wonder what’s the reason. Maybe they based the Kindle edition on a half- finished revision of the text. But still it’s a little weird. Happy

Also the name “CSB Bible” sounds weird, as the letter B is for Bible. It’s just like when people say LCD Display. The D stands for Display … Not that it’s very important … Winking
