THE HOLY BIBLE.
THE TVOBK OF REVISION COMPLETED
AT LAST.
Seme of tbe Notable Changes Thar Have
Been Wrought in the Text Alterations
and Eliminations That Blatcri
itlly Affect the Meaning.
LESSENING THE STRAIN ON FAITH.
The New English Translation of the New
Testament.
Londen Correspondence Chicago Times.
The queen's printer, who alone by an
cient statute law is permitted te publish
Bibles within the realm, has put his signa
ture upon the hist sheet proof of the new
revision of the New Testament, and with
in a week the first shipment of the bound
volumes, will be made te America, Can
ada, Australia and wherever the English
tongue is spoken by Protestants. Fer
many reasons that will readily occur and
need net be enumerated, the new revision
is an epoch in Protestantism, and a red
letter day in all Christian churches the
world ever. Its'advcnt, looked forward te
for ever a decade, and the hepe of thou
sands of Christian minds, will be a subject
of absorbing interest.
The revision is catholic in its nature;
cathedral in its form. It is the joint work
of the new and old worlds ; of all branches
of the Protestant church ; of learning and
piety joined hand and hand ; priest and
layman, prelate and scholar, working to
gether. Its origin was in that "cradle of
Anglo-Saxen Christendom, the convoca
tion or Canterbury, presided ever by the
primate of England." The necessity for
a revision of the present text has become
imperative hew imperative clergymen
and scholars alone kuew and for many
years previously there had been careful
inquiry and discussion among the bishops,
clergy and theological professors, as well
as laymen, in regard te the best means by
which it ought te be brought about. The
plan that has been slowly maturing under
the advice of the most eminent minds
in this country and America was
presented te the convocation May G, 1870,
by the committee having it in charge.
The plan was se well digested, se bread
in its catholicity, yet se conservative in its
aims, that it met with prompt approval,
and the work new completing was begun
witheutjdclay. The scheme could never have
had any hopes of success had it been con
fined te the established church, and it
therefore contemplated a union of learn
ing and special fitness for the labor that
would embrace the whole world ; that
would unite all English-speaking races and
all denominations ; that would produce a
text te be accepted in all lands and among
all peoples as an "authorized version" and
a correct rendering of the original text se
far as the original text could be agreed
upon by scholars.
The English committee appointed by
the convocation comprises the venerable
Archbishop French, of Dublin ; the Bis
hops of Lincoln, "Winchester, St. David's,
Durham, Salisbury, Bath and Wells, Lan
dau, Gloucester and Bristel, and St.
Andrcwis; the Deans of Westminster,
Ely, Litchfield, Rochester, Lincoln, Can
terbury and Peterborough ; the Archdea
cons of Dublin, Canterbury, Bedford and
Maidstone ; the Professors of Hebrew,
Greek, Arabic and special theological
branches in the universities of Oxford,
Cambridge, Edinburgh, Londen. Glasgow
and of the Weslcyan cellege at Dedsbury ;
the Baptist colleges at Londen and Bristel,
the Congregational college at Glasgow, and
the Free Kirk (Presbyterian) colleges at
Glasgow, Aberdeen and and Edinburgh.
Te these were added eminent laymen
adapted te the work.
The American committee was organized
in 1871, chiefly from professors in the lead
ing theological seiniuaries of the dillercnt
denominations; the divinity schools el
Harvard, Yule, Princeton, iNcw liruns
wick. Audevcr. Rochester, New Yerk,
Philadelphia, Trenten, Hartferd, Alexan
dria and ether cities, furnishing their ablest
scholars, Bishop Lee was the only cis-
Atlantic Episcopalian, but such names as
Woelscy, Dwight, Schaff, Ceuaut, Dcwitt,
Streng, Van Dyke, Green, Day, Ackcu,
Osgood, Thayer and Abbett names fa
miliar and revered net only here but in
critical Helland and erudite Germany-
were hailed as an earnest of the hearty ac
ceptance of the scheme by all American
denominations, and also their intention te
fully deserve half the credit el the work,
if net mere.
In addition te these committees, Fisch Fisch
enderf, Kcnncn, Ewakl, and nearly a hun
dred ether eminent Bible scholars of the
continent (including several Catholic pre
lates) placed their special knowledge,
their time and their manuscript treasures
at the disposal of the committee, and, as
corresponding members, have rendered as
sistance of the very highest value.
Hew the Revision Was Made.
The principles of the revision were mark
edly conservative. "As few alterations
in the present text as faithfulness te the
original would permit " was the first and
great commandment ; but it was under
stood that "faithfulness te the original "
required a great many changes. Ne
change was retained without a two-thirds
votein each committee. The "original
text" was selected in the same manner
from the eldest and best uncial manu
script. In America and here, following in part
the plan of the King James translators,
the committee divided, the Hebraists tak
ing the Old Testament, the Hellenists the
New Tcstimcnt. These did net sub-divide
the work, however, aud each member of
the New Testament committee became re
sponsible for the correctness of the entire
work.
The method et labor was this : Beth
committees-took up, Ictus say, the first
synoptic. The Americans revised it. The
work was then exchanged, and each com
mittee compared the revision with its own
Where they agreed the work was accepted.
Where they disagreed the work was
again gene ever, explained and exchanged
this being continued until agreement was
had. There was very little disagreement,
however, and the precaution provided for
of final disagreement was net necessary.
The progress of the work has been kept
secret by special arrangement. Alarming
reports of sweeping changes have from
time te time appeared, frightening the
timid and the letter-inspiratienists ; but
nothing was given out by authority until
new, when the whole work approved unani
mously by the committee is presented te
Christendom for a verdict. In consider
ing the changes that have been made it
may be proper te insist upon the fact being
kept in view that no mere cautious and
conservative body of Christian scholars,
enjoying se wide a reputation and such
high respect throughout the world, could
possibly be gathered together; that no
change has been made in the present Eng
lish version except by a two-thirds vote
in both bodies ; that the doubt has always
been .exercised in behalf of the present
version, the necessity for each change hav
ing te be proven clearly and unmistakably,
and that the only danger has been from
the first that the revisers wenll cxercise
undue caution and refuse te accept correc
tions that should be made in the interests
of truth because the evidence against
them lacked some technicality, producing
a work that the non-Christian would net
and ought net te be asked te accept as a
correct version of the original.
Why the Revision Was Needed.
Great as has been the bulk of informa
tion disseminated concerning the scrip
tures, some facts of the first importance
are little known. One of them is that there
never has been a standard text. The edi
tions printed by the queen's printer for the
Bible society have widely varied, and since
King James's day there have been many
unauthorized and no authorized version
strictly se called. The American Bible so
ciety is even in worse plight aud has of
late years been adhering te a text of its
own after putting several in the market,
while the ether societies de net even ad
here te one text.
The Kins James translators were strict
ly charged te fellow the text of the Bish
op's Bible, a revision of the Cranmcr
Bible, which was a revision of the Great
Bible, itself the Matthcw-Tyndale Bible,
without the notes, which had its origin in
an English translation from the German.
The previous revisers were individuals dis
satisfied with the version and their work
was without ecclesiastical authority.
The present text of the English version
is ever three centuries old, and during that
time the language has net alone taken en
many new words, but it has also dropped
many then in use, and found new mean
ings for old words which have lest their
original significance. Let me instance a
few obsolete werds: "Deves Uibcring
en their breasts," instead of drummimj ;
"The lien filled his den with raven," in
stead of plunder ; "Neither is there any
daysman," instead of umpire. "Ouches,"
for sockets ; " clouts," for patches ; "car
ing," for pleughing : "bruit," for report ;
"boiled," for swallow, arc ether exam
ples. The changes in signification, how
ever, are much mere important, and lead
te error, contradiction, dispute. When we
read that the daughter of Hcredias said :
"Give me, by-and-by, in a charger, the
head of Jehn the Baptist," it is natural te
think that she was in no great hurry. But
three hundred years age "by and by"
meant instantly, immediately, forthwith,
and a "charger " was net a " war horse,"
but what our housewives call a dish and
yours a platter. "Give me instantly in a
dish the head of Jehn the Baptist" is
quite different from the old form. The
"artillery" se often spoken of in the
Bible is net our artillery, but literally
bows and arrows. "Gote," then meant
come; "let," te hinder, "careless," free
from care; "prevent," te anticipate;
"admiration," wonder; "botch," an ni
cer; "camphirc," a cypress; "pommel,"
a glebe, etc.
mistakes or Early Translations.
The corrections necessary te bring the
English text into accord with the language
of te-day, many as they arc, are insignifi
cant, however, when compared with the
errors of early translators. Three hundred
years age the grammatical nicetics of the
Greek language were unknown and "He
brew studies were in theirinfancy." Bux Bux
terf published his little Hebrew grammar
while the translators were at work, and
his larger one after they had finished. In
many cases se weak were they in Hebrew,
they were compelled te leave Hebrew
words untranslated, net knowing or being
able te "guess" their meaning. A familiar
instance is the word Belial, which is sup
posed te be a proper name, but it simply
means unworthy, and the phrase "sons of
Belial" should properly read "unworthy
men;" "Jashcr" is net a proper name,
but an adjective, mcauing upright, and the
"Boek of .lasher" was the "Boek of the
Upright." The ".Gammadims" (Ezck.
xxvii., 11) arc warriors; "Pannag" (v. 17)
means a candy ; " Shcth" means a tumult';
"Bajith" an idol temple. Their wild
"guesses" often show absurd blunders.
The "mules" mentioned in Genesis ashav
ing been found were warm springs ;
"pledges" they turned into thick clay ;
"licet" into both piercing and crooked;
"curls" into galleries; "leaders" into
avenging; "ostriches" into owls ; "goats"
into satyrs; "droves" into linen yarn;
"set up" they render as cast down ; and
Jeseph's "tunic with long sleeves"
they transmogrify into a "coat of
many colors." Instances might be
mentioned until patience was ex
hausted of their inaccuracy. In the New
Testament they were better qualified for
the work, and their errors were net se
gross, though equally numerous. The
grammatical forms upon which se much
depends, especially with catholic epistles,
where there is close logic and the place of
a word in a sentence may qualify itsincan-
in:
are never considered, and they stum-
blc threuch their work
in a " rough and
tumble" way, mere like a
schoelbov than
a scholar.
Still mere important than cither the
changes of the language or the blunders of
translators have been the corrections that
have been made in the original text, by the
comparison of manuscripts generally, and
by the discovery of two very ancient man
uscripts of the Bible in particular. A sin
gle illustration of this will suffice : Mark
says that en the cress the Christ was
given wine mingled with myrrh ; Matthew
says vinegar. The " harmony" that gives
Him two drinks is bosh for children;
scholars knew there is acontradictien. The
natural inference is that the writers did
net disagree, and that the error arose in
copying. By comparing manuscripts the
inference is found te be correct, the elder
codices ajrrccins upon wine. The two
words in the Greek are very much alike, of
tlie same length, aud differing only in the
middle letter. The most violent of athe
istical shoemakers, when shown the manu
scripts, would net hesitate in his acknowl
edgment that there was no contradiction,
and that the cause of the error was te be
found in the carelessness of some copyist
of the Greek text of Matthew.
The translation of King James was mere
a new revision than the ordered revision.
In each case the exigencies of the labor
compelled a departure from and comprem
ise with the instructions, in tue latter
case there is less reason than in the form
er, but after the first excitement dies away
it will net be regretted.
The new revision of the New Testament
issued from the nnivcrsity press will at
first shock the Protestant world. It is net
recognizable as a Bible. The chapters and
verses arc gene ; the running headlines arc
gene ; verses are missing, changed, pared ;
familiar texts that have become graven en
the minds of church people for generations
have disappeared, and in their place are
words foreign te the eye and strange te the
ear. Verbal and grammatical changes
may be counted by the tens of thousands.
The first general idea that will strike the
scholar, however, is the delightful faithful
ness with which the Greek text has been
reproduced for the English reader. The
narrative is unbroken by disfigurement of
chapter and verse, but the capitals, punc
tuation and paragraphs lacking in the
original are, of course, supplied, and, for
convenience of reference te the present
version, the present divisions are marked
parenthetically. The misleading headlines
disappear finally, without a sign te denote
their improper intrusion
The effect is striking, and a marked im
provement. The sequence of the Gospel
narratives, the logic of St. Paul, take en a
new appearance and force that are net all
owing te the improvement in grammatical
construction of the text, although in a first
reading it is difficult te distinguish hew
much is owing te the one and hew much
te the ether.
Take this illustration (Heb, iv., C-7),
which is a fair cxample of this point :
OLD STTLE.
;. Seeing therefore it
remaincth that some
one must enter there
in, and they te whom
it was tirst preached
entered net in because
of unbelief:
7. A pi in, lie limitcth
a certain day, saying
te David, Te-day, alter
solenira time: its It is
said. Te-day, If ye will
hear his voice, harden
net your hearts.
3CBW STTLE.
Since, therefore. It
rematnetb that some
enter therein, and they
who formerly received
the glad premise en
tered net In because of
disobedience, he again

before), Te-day, if yc

Omissions rrem the Text.
The fourth Gospel suffers most at
the
hauds'ef the revisors,the syneptics less even
than thcJRcvelatien, and the catholic Epis
tles least of all. The longest excision is
from the lifty-third verse of the seventh
chapter te the eleventh versc of the next,
inclusive. The passageis that of the
woman taken in adultery, as fellows :
re. And every man went unto his own
house.
CHAPTER VIII.
Of the AduUerowCWeman.
1 . Jesus went unto the Mount of Olives.
2. And early in the morning he came
again into the temple, and all the pcople
came unto him ; and he sat down and
taught them.
3. And the scribes and Pharisees brought
unto him a woman taken in adultery ; and
when they had set her in the midst,
4. They say untD him, Master, this
woman was taken in adultery, in the very
act.
5. New Moses and the law commanded
us, such should be stoned ; but what sayest
thou?
(. This they said, tempting him, that
they might have te accuse him. But
Jesus steeped down, aud with his finger
wrote en the ground, as thetujh he heard
them nut.
7. Se when they continued asking him,
he lifted up himself and said uute them.
He that is without sin among you, let him
first cast a stone at her.
8. And again he steeped down and
wrote en the grenud.
!). And they which heard if, being con
victed by their own conscience, went out
one by one, beginning at the eldest, even
unto the last ; and Jesus was left alene,
and the woman standing in the midst.
10. When Jesus had lifted up himself,
and saw none but the woman, he said unto
her, Weman, where are these thjne accus
ers ? Hath no man condemned thce?
11. She said, no man, Lord. And Jesus
said uute her, Neither de I condemn thce ;
go : and sin no mere.
The following verse (12) in which Jesus
declares Himself the light of the world, is
joined upon and is a reply te the scoff of
"the Pharisees in the preceding chapter,
that out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
The next dclcctieu of importance is the
angelic coloring of the description of the
peel or Bcthcsda in the fifth chapter.
The following passage is emitted by the
revisers
:j Waiting for the moving of the
water.
4. Fer an angel went down at a certain
season unto the peel, and troubled the
water ; whosoever then first after the
troubling of the water stepped in, was
made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
The famous text of the three Heavenly
Witnesses (I Jehn, v., 7-8) is, of course,
thrown out, the following words being ex
punged :
7 In heaven the Father, the Werd
and the Hely Ghost ; and these three are
one.
8. And there arc three that bear witness
in earth
Anether notable emission of the revisers
is te be found in the conversion of Paul as
recorded in Acts, ix, 5-0. The words ex
punged arc :
5 It is hard for thce te kick against
the pricks.
(J. And he trembling and astonished
said, Lord, what wilt thou have me te de?
Ami the Lord said uute him.
There are many ether familiar passages
that have disappeared : "Many be called,
but few chosen," from Matthew xxii., 14 ;
" If any man has cars te hear, let him
hear," from Mark vii. 16.
Some of the happiest changes are of a
single word, as "alive" for "quick."
" They had swallowed us alive" has a
very different sense than " swallowed us
up quick." Again, " He that is washed
uccdeth net save te wash his feet," be
comes much mere simple when rendered,
" He that has taken a bath necdeth net
save te wash his feet." " Darkness ever
all the earth," and " ever all the land"
(Palestine), are very different things. In
every change the revisers lessen the strain
ui)en faith.
The grammatical Changes.
Miner changes have been hinted at. It
would take tee long te sort out, arrange
and classify them. " Here are a lew that
ceme hap-hazard : "As we have forgiven,"
instead of "forgive" "our debtors."
"The pinnacle of the temple," instead of
" a pinnacle" (there was but one.) " The
first fruits of them that are sleeping," in
stead of " slept." " If one died for all,
then were all dead," instead of "then did
all die." Paul did net pray the Lord te
avenge him en Alexander. He said : " The
Lord "will" reward him according te his
works," net "the Lord reward him."
"SuDuesinjrthat cedliness were acain,"
instead of "again is godliness." "The
word became (instead of was made) flesh."
"Bern of a woman," instead of " made of
a woman." "Fer wc saw his star," net
"have seen" it. Such changes as these
are te be found in every verse, and it will
net require a very careful reading of either
of the gospels te see hew many changes
have been made that de net change the
spirit, yet add te its clearness and force as
well as accuracy.

least effect. The doctors said my case was In
curable. Sc my parents tried everything that
came along. I saw the advertisement and con
eluded te try Ccticura Rnamiss. The first
box et Ctiticuba brought the llumer te the
surface of my skin. It would drop en as It
came out, until new I am entirely well. All I
can say is, I thank you most heartily for niy
cure. WILL MePUNALD.
