All those chapters and versus are of christian origin - they are not in the torah.

Now saying that translation of it from Hebrew to something else loses something is not a fair argument.

For that matter, you could buy the book in Hebrew (and Aramaic) for that. I've seen an orthodox Jewish version of the bible, translated into English - it's loaded, both in English and Hebrew (and I was told, Aramaic for this scholar Rashi) with commentary and interpretations. At least in the English, they'll offer alternative interpretations according to different scholars. And, of course, footnotes. I think the thing would be 1/3 it's size if they left that stuff out.

Like stories I read from this author "Sholem Aleichem" - they were written in Yiddish. I was either told or it was in the foreword of one of the books that if it took five pages in Yiddish it would take fifteen to translate it to English (an example of that nuance you spoke of). That, I cannot deny. But don't confuse the christian views and divisions and translation with the "real thing".
