Yes, but how many of these expressions can you find in the Old Testament?

And when you look at the Old Testament in Hebrew, you do not find any of those words in English.

Somehow the Old Testament got altered. I suspect when the Hebrew was translated into Greek (Septuagint), the Greek did not have words for certain Hebrew words so instead of creating share words, the translators used words that were close, but not accurate in their translation. For example the transliterated word Elohim was translated as the Greek work for God or a god. Same applied to Yahweh which later became LORD in English. Also, the translators did not acknowledge the various variations of the Hebrew transliterated words we call Elohim and Yahweh which have slightly different pronouncement and meaning.

     whereas suffering is caused by a distorted mind.
