What's the best way to read the Bible as close to the source as possible? I'm guessing it would require learning Greek?

So this was just written by coping romans and shouldn't be taken seriously in modern times, right?

>8Surely thou hast spoken in mine hearing, and I have heard the voice of thy words, saying,
>9I am clean without transgression, I am innocent; neither is there iniquity in me.
>10Behold, he findeth occasions against me, he counteth me for his enemy,
>11He putteth my feet in the stocks, he marketh all my paths.
>12Behold, in this thou art not just: I will answer thee, that God is greater than man.
>13Why dost thou strive against him? for he giveth not account of any of his matters.
>14For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.
>15In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;
>16Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,
>17That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.
>18He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.
>19He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain:
>20So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty meat.
>21His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.
>22Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.
>23If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his uprightness:
>24Then he is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.
>25His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: he shall return to the days of his youth:
>26He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.
>27He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;
>28He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.
>29Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,
>30To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.

What are some books to read to help me destroy evil people? Using this pic to get it out of the way.

I am obsessed with this fucking book since it has such a profound influence on nearly everything but I'm scared to read it because it's Jewish.

Did this book REALLY deserve to be printed AT ALL?? Just seems it has caused division and war between peoples throughout history.
Is there literally ANYTHING redeeming about it though?

>Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
>Do not resist thy enemy
>Turn the other cheek
>Love thy enemy
>Bless them that curse you
>Do good to them that hate you
>Pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you
Let's be honest, this is not the best that the self-help genre has to offer.

What was that passage of the New Testament that said something along the lines of "Every imbalance contributes to the greater balance"? Thank you.

Whats the fast lane for reading the New Testament so I can acquire important cultural background knowledge? I've seen college syllabi that only have Matthew and John as required reading. Does /lit/ agree with this?

Can someone explain the appeal to me?
When I read it, I don't see anything more than a collection of stories, nothing special that makes it any different from other scriptures like the Quran or Bhagavad Gita. It's unconvincing and the proselytes who keep harping on about the lake of fire and other nonsense don't help.
And yet, many great men in history sincerely believed in this book, so I'm thinking maybe I might've missed something. Have I?

The Bible is, without a doubt, one of the most profound, insightful and worthwhile works of fiction ever produced.
