9781331512998: The Three Bibles, Scholarship and Inspiration Compared: An Arrangement in Parallel Columns of Prominent Passages From the King James' and Revised ... by Inspiration Through Joseph Smith

Excerpt from The Three Bibles, Scholarship and Inspiration Compared: An Arrangement in Parallel Columns of Prominent Passages From the King James' and Revised Versions of the Bible, as Well as the Holy Scriptures, Translated by Inspiration Through Joseph Smith

Directed by God to translate and correct the Bible, Mr. Smith, with Divine aid, accomplished the task in three years. The manuscript, at the death of Joseph Smith, was left in the hands of his widow, and in 1867, a publishing committee of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, consisting of Joseph Smith (son of the martyr), I. L. Rogers and E. Robinson, published it. Let the reader judge in the light of all these facts, and widely different circumstances and conditions in which the three translations were made and presented to the world, choosing that most acceptable to him, remembering that to God account must be rendered for accepting or rejecting that which is right and true.

The author has thought best, all classes of readers considered, that the comparison should run successively through the several books of the Bible, while at the same time, it is conceded, that for some it would have been more convenient to classify more into subjects, but again, to treat by subjects and use all bearing on them from three translations, would make the work too large for the purpose intended. A selection of texts in regular succession must strike all as Fair Dealing, and a few subjects compiled will give a Sample in that direction, and throughout will appear improved readings in history, morals, doctrine, etc.

At one or more places an extended reading is given, to show that it is not a selection of short passages that gives advantage, or places at a disadvantage, either translation. In the historical extracts and in the text of the third column of the comparison I have emphasized to call attention only.

The punctuation is intended to be As It is in the three versions, In Every Particular, odd as it may make the work appear.

The italics in the text of the King James' and Revised Version are omitted, not to change the import, but because not deemed necessary in the comparison, as it is a comparison of the verbiage as it appears, that is being made, and not as to what may or may not have been supplied by the translators in their work on the King James' and Revised versions.

Often the correction in the translation, represented in the third column, consists of words being left out, and in such cases the emphasizing of such words in King James' and the Revised, would have been an advantage, but the author prefers to let those two versions appear in such way that no stickler may have cause to complain. Other corrections, again, consist in transferring to different positions the same words found in one, or both, King James' and the Revised, which the casual reader might pass unobserved.

To fellow-laborers, I may say, to have used all available texts, would have made the work too large; others might have selected widely different from what I have. The work of Elders Isaac Sheen, W. W. Blair, Heman C. Smith and J. J. Cornish has been gleaned from. Valuable suggestions are acknowledged with pleasure from Elder I. N. White.

In the language of the Apostle Paul, the reader is enjoined to "prove all things," and to "hold fast that which is good."
