Strafmichgott-Bibel is the name of a German Bible translation prepared by Johann Piscator (Herborn. 1602-4, 4 vols.). This translation, the first, which was made by a member of the Reformed Church into the German language, though complete, is very deficient, and bears its name (Strafmichgott-Bibel) from its translation of Mr 8:12: "Wann diesem Geschlechte ein Zeichen wirdt gegeben werden, so strafe mich Gott." The translation closely follows the Latin version of Junius and Tremellius, and the German teems with Latinisms. For a time this version was used in Berne and other places. See Theol.
