Oops Moses parted the Reed Sea, not the Red Sea Joseph

When the bible was translated into English , in Exodus it was mistakenly translated from The Sea of Reeds, or the Reed Sea, to the Red Sea. When Joseph translated this part of the bible, why wasn't he able to catch this simple mistake. After all, he was translating this with the power of God, and putting The Book of Moses into " the most correct book ever written"

You have an obvious propensity for embracing other people's thoughts (and probably any of them that seem to say the Bible is errant). If you'd done your homework ... which would mean taking a position other than someone elses ... you would have realized that there are other places in the Bible where "Yam Suf" is translated as "Red Sea" where it can't be a knee-deep weedy swamp. But, hey, why start engaging a brain at this point?!?!?!
