So That’s Where It’s From

Ok I know you don’t care about this, but half a year ago (2 Sep 99) a DS9 episode was entitled “…Nor the battle to the Strong” This made absolutely no sense, but today I was reading an article (yet another one playing around with babelfish’s mistranslation capabilities) linked off Camworld. Turns out the title is a Bible verse.

I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. –Ecclesiastes 9:11

Ohhhhhh. I get it now.
