Errors can be difficult to read, and your reader may have trouble knowing if the mistake is intentional or unintentional. Paraphrasing the point and adding a citation is an excellent way to get around retyping the error.

However, if you decide that quoting an error is best, write [sic] in square brackets next to the errors to indicate the mistakes are not your own.
