The Necessity for an Improved Version Ex
amples of the Countless Errors of Uely
Writ Opinions of Various
The American Sunday-Scheel Union has
issued a timely and valuable work of Bible
lieiisien, prepared by a number of reli
gious writers of acknowledge ability. "We
make the following extracts :
Inaccuracies of the Old Testament.
On this subject Rev. Dr. Jeseph Packard
We proceed te give some examples of
errors in the English version, which are
acknowledged te be such by the almost uni
versal consent of critical commentators.
The correction of these errors of transla
tion will ailect some texts often preached
upon, and upon which a different interpre
tation has been put by tradition.
The English version of the book of Jeb
has always been regarded by the best
judges as very unsatisfactory. In Jeb iii :
6, where Jeb curses the day et his until,
he represents the night of his birtli as say
ing, with joy, 'There is a man child born !"
Our version has it, in teltich it was said,
thus destroying the poetic ligure, which
persenilies the night. It should have been,
Let the night perish, ichich said. In the
sublime address of Jehovah te Jeb, iu the
39th and 40th chapters, we Jiiul several
verses in our version which failed te give
the sense of the original. In the descrip
tion of the war horse, chapter e9th and
24th verse, it is said, 'J Neither believeth
he that it is the sound of the trumpet." If
belief can be ascribed te a horse, it is the
very thing which he believes, for he has
heard the sound of the trumpet often
enough before. The primary sense of the
verb translated bcliciezh is, te be firm, and
adopting this we have this sense ; Neither
cau he stand still at the sound of the trum
pet. Virgil, in describing the war horse,
says, " When the arms clash he knows net
hew te standstill.''
Iu Jeb xi : 19, iu the dcsciiptiouef the
hippopotamus, it is said in our version,
"lie that made him cau make his sword
te approach unto lim.'', The translation
new almost universally adopted by the
critics is, "His maker gives him his
sword," or tusk.
In Jeb xl ; 23, ''Beheld, he drinketh up
a river, and hasteth net ; he trustelh- that
he can draw up Jerdan into his mouth."
This gives no congruous sense. The trans
lation adopted by Furst, Conant and ethers,
" Le a river MrcIN, he U net afraid ;
Fearless, though Jerdan rushes te his mouth."
In Daniel ii, 5, "The king answered and
said te the astrologers, The king is gene
from me." Frem the heading of the
chapter, "Nebuchadnezzar forgetting his
dream," etc., we infer that the Author
ized Version understood by the thing, the
dream, and that the king had forgotten
liis dream : but in that case it would net
have troubled him. The true reason of
the king's requiring them te tell the dicam
is given in verse 1) : "Tell me the dream
and I slnll knew that he can show me the
interpretation thereof." The Ghaidee
word, translated in our version thing, is
the same word, translated, verse 9, word,
and also iu chapter iii, 28, the king's icerd.
It should then have been translated, The
word has gene from me.
In Daniel vii, 9, "I beheld till the
thrones were cast down," it should be ex
actly the reverse were set up. Se Gcsc
nius, Furst, and ethers, as in Jeremiah
i, 15: "They shall set up every ene his
throne," or seat, and iu Apocalypse iv, 2,
"Beheld a throne was set in heaven.'
New Testament Imperfections.
Professer Ezra Abbett, I). D., LL. D.,
writes under this head :
Of the 150,000 various readings, mere or
less, of the text of the Greek New Testa
ment, we may, as Mr. Norten has remark
ed, dismiss ninctecu-twentieths from con
sideration at once, r.3 being obviously of
such a character, or supported by se little
authority, that no critic would regard them
as having any claim te lcceptien. This
leaves, w will say, 7,500. But of these,
again, it will appear, en examination, that
nineteen out of twenty arc of noseitof
consequence as effecting the sense ; they
relate te questions of orthography, or
grammatical constitution, or (he order of
words, or such ether matters as have been
mentioned above, in speaking of unimpor
tant variations. They concern euly the
form of expression, net the essential mean
ing. This reduces the number te perhaps
400, which involves a difference of mean
ing, often very slight, or the emission or
addition of a few words, sufficient te ren
der them objects of some curiosity and in
terest, while a few exceptional cases
among them may relatively be called im
portant. But our critical helps arc new
se abundant that in a very large majority
of these mere important questions of read
ing we arc able te determine the true text
with a very geed degrce of confidence.
What remains doubtful we can afford te
leave doubtful. Iu all ancient writings
there arc passages in which the text can
not be .settled, with certainty ; and the
same is true of the interpretation.
The number of the various readings,
which have been collected from mere than
500 manuscripts, mere than a dozen an
cient versions, and from the quotations in
the writings of mere than 100 Christian
fathers, only attests the abundance of our
critical lcseurces, which enable us new te
settle the true text of the New Testament
with a confidence and precision which arc
wholly unattainable in the case, of the text
of any Greek or Latin classical author. I
say, enable us new te de this ; for in the
time of our translators of 1 Gil only a very
small portion of our present critical helps
Obsolete Words and Phrases in the .Scrip
tures. Rev. Heward Cresby, D. D., LL. D.,
says : " It is net the archaisms of our
English Bible which constitute the most
important reason for a revised translation.
Erroneous or obscure renderings form a
far mere conspicuous argument. But yet
it is very true that there arc many words
and phrases in the received version which
the ordinary reader would be likely te
misunderstand, the words themselves hav
ing become obsolete, or their significations
(or modes of spelling') having undergone a
change. We append the following as
TiicrtM snail overflow witn wine ana
oil " (Joel ii, 24), for "vats." "Lest he
hale thee te the judge " (Luke xii, 58), for
"haul," and " Jteised up the mainsail te
the wind" (Acts xxvii,40), for "heisted."
" lie overlaid their chapiters with geld "
(Ex.xxxvi. S3), for "capitals." "And
sat down atlenieil " (Ezra ix, 3), for " as
tonished.'' " Or ever the earth was "
(Prev. viii, 23), for "ere." Se we find
leicray (betray), magnificat (magnificant),
aud dclicatcs (delicacies.) Many of these
archaisms in spelling have been emitted
iu mere modern editions of our version, as
leese for "lese." sitli for "since," cleke
(or "cloak." The old plural "hesen,"
however, still remains, in Dan. iii, 21, for
"And they shall pass through it, hardly
bestead" (Isa. viii, 21), for "served."
"Besides that which chapmen and mer
chants brought " (2dChren. ix, 14), for
"market-men." "Old shoes and clouted
upon their feet " (Jesh, ix, 5); "took
thence old cast clouts " (Jer. xxxviii, 11),
for "patched" and "patches." "Neither
is there any daysman betwixt as " (Jeb
ix, 33). for "umpire.
make them te be set in eucJics of geld"
( Ex. xxvii, 11), for "sockets." "Deves
tabcring upon their breasts" (Nahuui ii,
7), for "'drumming" "The lien filled
his den with ravin " (Nahnm ii 12), for
"plunder." "He made fifty tachesef
geld " (Ex. xxxvi. 13), for "catches." Se
caring (pleughing), eschew (shun), harber harber
geen (coat of mail), heugh (hamstring),
kine (cows), and leasing (lying), Wc may
add te these many of the names of ani
mals, precious stones, etc, as giereagle,
essifragc, behemath, leciatJian (these last
two being the Hebrew words untranslated)
sardius, Ugurc, bdellium.
Thcse arc the most numerous and most
impretant of Bible archaism because they
arc likely te be unnoticed, and the reader
will thus form a wrong notion of themcau
iug of a statement. The manifest archa
ism will always set one upon his guard, and
lead him te investigate ; but these words
having a perfectly familiar leek, suggest
no need of inquiry. Who would imagine
that Ezckicl saying "as an adamant, har
der than Hint " (Esek. iii, 9), and Zcchariah
saying, "they made their hearts as an
adamant stone,'1 both referred te a "dia
mond.' " The Hebrew word here translated
" adamant " is translated "dianumd" in
Jer. xvii, 1. The objects, in Ps. xxxv, 13,
arc the " dreggs of the people" The
apothecary, in hx. xxv, 2.j, 3e ; xxxvn, 29,
aud Eccl, x, 1, is net our druggist, or pre
parer of medicines, but simply a " maker
of unguents." Aha. in Ps. xxxv, 21, and
many ether places, is net an exclamation
of one catching another in evil (as it new is
used), but of ene exulting ever the cncniy,
aud is equivalent te our "hurrah !''
The modern botch is used exclusively for
a clumsy patch or job ; but iu Dcut.
xxviii, 27, it means " ulcer." Braccry, iu
Isa. iii, 18, signifies "splendor." Who
recognizes in the camphire of Solemon's
Seng i, 14 and iv, 13 (which suggests
camphor!) the swcet-smclling "cypiess"?
and who imagines that the caterpillar of
the Old Testament is a locust with wings?
The charger in Num. ii, 13, and Matt,
xiv, 8, is a dish and net a horse : the ladder
of Gen. xxviii, 12, is a staircase ; the turtle
of Solemon's Seng ii, 12, and Jer. viii, 7,
is net a tortoise, but a dove ; and the
nephews of Jud. xii, 14 ; I Tim. v. 4 ; Jeb
xviii, 19 ; Isa. xiv, 22, are grandsons. The
hemmcts of2Chren. iv, 12, have nothing
te de with saddles, but arc "glebes" rest
ing en the summits of the columns. The
work "quick" is ahnestialways misun
dc: steed in Ps. exxiv, 3, "TliQy have
swallowed us up quick," as if they meant
"rapidly." The passage means, "They
have swallowed us up alive." Prevent, in
Scriptures means, "net prevent" (. c.
anticipate), and "cimsans "net let " (. e.
hinder), se completely have these words
turned ever in signification. The latter is
still used in law phrase as "hinder."
Deal, in "tenth deal" (Ex. xxix, 40.)
means "part." Otitlacish, iu Nch. xiii,
20, means simply " foreign."' Its modern
meaning is "clownish."
Conversation, in Scripture, never refers
le speech, but always means "manner cr
course in life." Curious mistakes have
been made even in the pulpit by net ob
serving this. Comfert in the present use,
signifies " seething ;" but in old English
it had the force of the Latin co,iferlare,
and meant "strengthening." "Comfert
one another with these words." 1 Thess.
iv, 18, is equal te "strengthen one
another," etc. Damn and damnation are
simply " condemn" and "condemnation,"
as in Rem. xiv, 23, and 1 Cor., xi, 29.
"They shall dele," in Jer. 1, 30, is "they
shall become foolish." In Zcch. ly 21, the
carpenters came te fray the horns, and the
reader supposes that this mnst mean "te
plane" or "te saw,' but it mcausenly "te
l'aregrnplia, Chapter, and Verses of tlie
Professer James Streng, S. T. D., says :
The present division into chapters and
verses is manifestly injudicious, and seme
of the advantages of a just paragraph sys
tem are the following, which wc will illus
trate by a few examples: The sense 13
greatly injured by the one-method and im im
pretcd by the ether. Oftentimes the closest
connection of thought is broken up the
present division, which is purely accident
al ; and vice versa, a connection is falsely,
suggested where there is really a break in
the subject. Thus, at the very outset
the account of the general creation
in Gen. i. properly includes verse 3
1-3 of chapter ii. as every indi
cation in the text shows; while verse 4
begins the narrative of man's trials in
Eden. Se, in the last chapter of Revelation
verses 1-5 belong te the description of the
heavenly city preceding, and the remain
ing verses contain an entirely distinct top
ic. Similar instances arc innumerable, as
any judiciously arranged " Paragraph
Bible"will show. In like manner the verses
frequently interrupt a sentence, sometimes
very strangely, as in Ps. xcvii, 8, 9. "Let
thehills be joyful together before the
Lord," andsePs. xevi, 12, 13. The mere
fact of beginning a new verse
with a. capital letter after a com
ma or sonic ether of the lesser punctuation
marks is calculated te mislead the reader,
and induce a defective and'erronceus habit
of quoting Scripture. Probably this has
been a fruitful cause of the prevalent prac
tice of perverting proof texts, by neglect
ing the context. On the contrary, hew
inuch mere beautiful would the descrip
tion of charity, in 1 Cor. xiii, become if
read in immediate conncctien,as exempli
fying the "mere excellent way" of the last
verse el the preceding chapter, and as en
forcing the exhortation te "fellow after
charity," in the first verse of the follow
ing chapter. Proper paragraphing is a
sort of analysis of a book or chapter, se as
te be evident at a glance. Hew would a
modern history, or poem, or epistle leek,
if the printer should chop it up in the
fashion of our common Bibles ? It greatly
impairs the significance and dignity of the
A Conscientious Clerk.
Why a Texas Grocer Urcvr Peer Out of His
A Galveston grocer has been observing
for several weeks past that a great many
of his customers had quit him, and were
trading at a rival store ever the way. He
also noted that one of his clerks, who had
been converted at a revival, rarely suc
ceeded mi selling any goods at all te a cus cus
temc. '"Jp had formerly been a very effi
cient cle.-1 selling groceries, hence the
proprietor was very much bewildered.
Yesterday morning the proprietor came
down befere the clerk made his appcar
ancc,nnd hiding behind a stack of boxes of
Blue Jacket's liver encouraging bitters,
waited patiently for developments. Pres
ently the clerk came in, put en his apron,
dusted off the counter, whistling " Frem
Greenland's Icy Mountains" as he did se.
It was net long before a wealthy lady,
whose custom ran up into the thousands
annually came in and asked the clerk if he
had the celebrated B Ne. 3 sugar. He re
plied that they had, showed her a sample,
and she said she thought she would take
about one hundred pounds.
The conscientious clerk looked at the
lady very earnestly, and asked :
" Arc you prepared te meet your
The lady stared iu blank amazement.
"I want te knew if you have family
prayers regularly aud if your family are
fully prepared for a blissful hereafter be
yond the grave ; for if you arc net yen
can't get the sugar, that's all. There is
eueugh chloride of tin in ene hundred
pounds of sujrar te kill the last one of you.
and I don't want anybody's bleed en my
hands, particularly when they arc leading
wicked lives and net fit te die," and he
put the cover en the sugar barrel and
strolled out te the deer whistling " Old
The lady Haunted herself out of the
store, her face as red as fire, but it was
net any redder than the proprietor's, who
was only waitimr for an opportunity te
rend that clerk limb from limt. Fortun
ately, several customers came in, and the
proprietor drew in his breath, gritted his
teeth aud waited as best he could for the
hour of vengeance te strike.
"Have you get any claret genuine
French claret '?"
" Who de you want it for ?"
"I want it for a friend of mine out. in
" Has he a geed constitution '.''
"Ne, he is iu l'acblc health, and I want
it te help build up his system.'"
"We inake our genuine claret ourselves
down iti the cellar. The proprietor ataends
te that himself. Of late the infusions of
logwood and dyc-stulfs we get from the
druggist have been of such peer quality
that our genuine claret won't d for me te
recommend. I can't conscientiously de se.
Yau had better let your friend die a na
The man said he was much obliged for
the information, but the clerk said he was
only doing his duty, and he whistled,
"When I Can Read 3Iy Title Clear," as
the customer strolled off.
Other customers decked in, but he
firmly refused te sell them a dime's worth.
He explained te a cadaverous-looking
woman that the dyspeytic appearance was
due te the China clay in the flour, aud the
glucose and sulphuric acid iu the golden
syrup she wautcd te purchase. Anether
lady wanted tea. The geed clerk said :
" Madame, if you were te drop dead and
wake up where there is weeping and wait
ing and gnashing of teeth, I ' could net
sleep at night afterward. Yeu could net
buy a pound of tea at this establishment
for all the wealth of the Indies. The color
of the tea is poeduced by Prussian blue,
which causes ossification of the valvular
system of the heart. lean sec by your
leathery complexion, that it is caused by
the tannin in the tea, that you are net long

"We have some beans faced with phos
phate of calcium and sulphate of barium,
but the man who gets any of it has te show
a clean bill of health from his spiritual ad
viser." There was no trade with that
Finally, when there were no customers
in the store, the interview between the en
raged storekeeper and his clerk took place,
but the clerk se impressively warned the
grocer with an ax-handle net te ap
proach tee close unless he was prepared te
go home, that their business relations
were dissolved by mutual consent. The
moral of all of which is that things
are net always what they seem.
