Justice Elon, supra, note 4, p. 322, correctly notes that the terminology “ziyyuf haTorah” appears nowhere in Maharshal or subsequent codifiers, but rather “shinui divrei Torah” (changing the words of the Torah). R. Isaac haLevi Herzog, “Tehuka leYisrael al Pi haTorah,” III (Jerusalem: Mossad haRav Kook, 1989), p. 278, uses the term “siluf haTorah.” R. Hershel Schachter attributes the terminology to R.
