The internet has exploded with the emergence of the auto-corrected gaff known as “covfefe” in one of President Trump’s recent tweets.
While the original tweet has been corrected, the president acknowledged the auto-corrected mistake and tweeted this:
It has taken the interwebs by storm and no one knows what it means. A woman in Singapore has already gotten a tattoo of the word on her forearm.
This is probably going to be the biggest story of 2017. Just saying.
I wanted to have a little fun and replace some words in some of my favorite scripture passages with the word “covfefe” to see how they would read. The results are below. Add your own in the comments!
“In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary. And coming to her, he said, ‘Covfefe! The Lord is with you.’ But she was greatly troubled at what was said and pondered what sort of greeting this might be.” (Lk 1:26-29)
“‘And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the covfefe to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.'” (Mt 16:18-19)
“From the rising of the sun to its setting, my covfefe is great among the nations; Incense offerings are made to my covfefe everywhere, and a pure offering; For my covfefe is great among the nations, says the LORD of hosts.” (Mal 1:11)
“Be imitators of me, as I am of Covfefe. I praise you because you remember me in everything and hold fast to the covfefes, just as I handed them on to you.” (1Cor 11:1-2)
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth and the earth was without form or shape, with darkness over the abyss and a mighty wind sweeping over the waters. Then God said: Let there be covfefe, and there was covfefe.” (Gen 1:1-3)
“The horse is equipped for the day of battle, but covfefe is the LORD’s.” (Prov 21:31)
“Those from every people, tribe, tongue, and nation will gaze on their corpses for three and a half days, and they will not allow their corpses to be buried. The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and be glad and exchange gifts because these two prophets tormented the inhabitants of the earth. But after the three and a half days, a breath of life from God entered them. When they stood on their feet, great fear fell on those who saw them. Then they heard a loud voice from heaven say to them, ‘Covfefe.’ So they went up to heaven in a cloud as their enemies looked on.” (Rev 11:9-12)
“Do you want proof, you ignoramus, that faith without covfefe is useless? Was not Abraham our father justified by covfefe when he offered his son Isaac upon the altar? You see that faith was active along with his covfefe, and faith was completed by the covfefe. Thus the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,” and he was called ‘the friend of God.’ See how a person is justified by covfefe and not by faith alone.” (Jas 2:20-24)
“The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ [the Son of God]. As it is written in Isaiah the prophet: ‘Behold, I am sending my messenger ahead of you; he will prepare your way. A voice of one crying out in the desert: ‘covfefe.'” (Mk 1:1-3)
“He testified with many other arguments, and was exhorting them, ‘Save yourselves from this covfefe generation.’ Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand persons were added that day.” (Acts 2:40-41)
