@Joe Sixpack,
That's irrelevant to the point being made which is the mistranslation in the NWT of that passage.

You haven't explained why that point is a strawman.

@InfraBlue,
Y'know. I just don't see any deviation in meaning.

@InfraBlue,
If it were a mistranslation, would it not have altered meaning?

If someone who doesn't exist makes a pass at one's wife you mean. If there is only Jehovah then all other gods are just imaginary friends. Why worry about that, especially if you're omnipotent all seeing yada yada?

Jealousy is bad if it is born out of insecurity.
It is not bad if born out of genuine concern for the other.

@neologist,
One can apply various meanings to texts. Absent certain words, certain meanings cannot be obtained.

The meaning of the statements, "For Jehovah--Jealous is his name," "The LORD his name is Jealous," "for Yahweh, whose name is Jealous." etc. cannot be derived if it is excluded.
