Strain out

Critics point to the phrase, “strain at”, as either a printer’s error or a translation error of what ought to be “strain out”. However, Dr. David Norton, editor of the New Cambridge Paragraph Bible (2005), says in A Textual History of the King James Bible:

“It has been asserted that ‘straine at’ in the Bible of 1611 is a misprint for ‘straine out’. But quots. 1583 and 1594 show that the translators of 1611 simply adopted a rendering that had already obtained currency. It was not a mistranslation, the meaning intended being ‘which strain the liquor if they find a gnat in it’. In short, ‘strain at’ probably was deliberate.” (45)
