      Please use a spell checker and carefully check grammar before sending out such critical messages about others.  There are many reliable scholars who hold to the "mine ears Thou hast opened" reading without comprimising the integrity of the New Testament.  Many of the quotes from the New Testament are not exact or are expansions upon the Old without contradicting the original intent.  It is quite possible that the writer of Hebrews was practicing a technique of arguing from the lesser to the greater.  Instead of the "ears" being opened and "prepared," the greater, the Messiah, is consecrated throughout His whole body.  And of course, it is possible, that the "a body Thou hast prepared for Me" is in fact the proper reading, but one does not by necessity have to be dogmatic about this nor call others blasphemers because they do not agree with you.  The first explanation that I gave is perfectly within the accepted paradigms of first century Jewish hermeneutics.  For a good discussion of those techniques, please check the index at www.christian-thinktank.com/
