well i think that god's basic message is still in the book, but the words and sentences are quite different, and tell a story or whatever, possibly the same as the first copy, or completely different. and the bible passages isn't just a word or two, they're several sentences, and if a monk didn't want to write all that, he might shave off a couple words and replece them with shorter words or just leave them off, and this happening for a couple thousand years to your proverb would change as well. like instead of confused, its confuzzled. or instead of See ya, it's Slue. but its still the original meaning.
