An Associated Press article about the full-size model of Noah’s Ark built by Dutchman Johan Huibers incorrectly cites the phrase “the cities of the coast shall tremble” as being from the New Testament. No English Bible translation has that exact phrase anywhere but several verses do have similar phrasing although they are not in the New Testament but in the Old Testament.
