Doubt about Qur'an 9:11

Reader comment on item: A Muslim reformation?
in response to reader comment: verse (9:11) Quran

Submitted by Ray Thibodeeaux (United States), Feb 15, 2006 at 16:13

I have looked up the Holy Qur'an verse 9:11 and I doubt the version about the "fearsome Eagle" exists in the Holy Qur'an. I have studied three different Qur'ans and found nothing but the following from verse 9:11 in all three of them;
"But (even so), if they repent,
Establish regular prayers,
And practice regular chastity-
They are your brethren in Faith:
(Thus) do We explain theSigns
In detail, for those who understand.

Please clarify since I doubt very seriously the existence of the "fearsome Eagle" version of this Verse. Thanks
