Tell me Eric, say what ever you have been coming on most of my answers for the past 3 days, that you want to tell me something and never do!
Say it, because if you keep this up I'm going to do something I've never done, report you to Ask.com!
I've been patient and kind and my patience is wearing very thin. You have been stalking me to say something, which I now believe you're just trying to be a nuisance! Say what you keep bugging the heck out of me that you want or need to say, then be done with it or I will report you! WHAT IS IT YOU WANT TO SAY?

It was sarcasm. Ok? I had a rough childhood too. I don't use it as an excuse to stalk people. Now really, you were too "shy" to say that?
I'm not into games. Stop!

Most everyone has had a bad childhood or some kind of trauma in their life. My father was a mean abusive drunk and my mother to weak to do anything. Some rise above it and some sink to it. Which are you going to be?
As far as the alleged question you need to bother me for 3 days about, asking me to talk privately about, no one can force you to believe anything.
But we both know that's not the reason for the harassment. So from now on if you don't have anything to say but my name 4 times a thread followed by a question mark, don't bother me! Zeesh!

My New International Version does not have "Palastine" or "Palestine"

EDIT: Now that I see Joel 3:4, my version calls it "Philistia"

That's the problem with new translations.

Four times but it is an English word derived from the Greek Philistea or Philistine which itself is derived from the name Plesheth which is found often in the Bible. Obviously most of the specific ENGLISH words wont be found in original Hebrew and Greek original texts because the languages dont have the same words. The land area refered to as Palestine/Philistine/Philistea/Plesheth existed then as it does now tho and played an important part both in regular history and in the history of Gods people. The Jewish claim to the territory comes in Gods covenant with Abraham and later Gods promises to Moses and the people of Israel that all the land in that area, Philistine included, was given to them by God as long as they obeyed Him. Which they didnt entirely do unfortunately.

No, and for a good reason. The term Palestine (English for the Latin Palestina) was invented only after the Bar Kochba revolt in the 2nd century CE. The Romans wanted to weaken the claim of Jews for Judea, so they did two things: changed the name if the land from Judea to Palestina, and included it administratively as part of Syria. What the Bible does have though is a name for a part of the land, the southern part of the coastal plains, which was called Philistea after the Philistines who used to live there, Isaiah 14:29; 14:31; Psalms 60:10; 83:8; 87:4; 108:10; Exodus 15:14; Joel 4:4. The term Philistea is a translation of the original Hebrew term "Plesheth", referring to the same, i.e., the land of the Philistines, namely only the southern parts of the coastal plains. Another term the Bible uses is "Eretz Plishtim" in Hebrew, or "Land of the Philistines", which refers to the same geographical area: Gen. 21:32; 21:34; Exodus 13:17; 1 Sam. 27:1; 31:9; 30:16; 1 Kings 5:1; 2 Kings 8:2; Jer. 25:20; Zephaniah 2:5; 1 Chron. 10:9; 2 Chron. 9:26. There are other variants that appear fewer times: "sedot Plishtim", or the fields of the Philistines, "yam Plishtims", the sea of the Philistines, or "gelilot Plishtim", the counties (?) of the Philistines. If any if these terms is translated to Palestine that would be (a) geographically inaccurate, as Palestine refers to the land of the combined modern Israel and Jordan, and (b) anachronistic as that term was invented only in the 2nd century CE.
