Question

 

Gramps,

Please tell me which verses in the KJV have been translated correctly so that I am not confused..?

Ezek27

 

Answer

 

Dear Ezek27,

Perhaps it would be easier to tell you which verses in the KJV have not been translated correctly. Since you refer to Ezekiel, I will show you the verses in the book of Ezekiel that were corrected by the prophet Joseph Smith. The only change that the Prophet make to the book of Ezekiel was chapter 23 verse 22, in which he added the words “from me” after the word “alienated.” as—

Therefore, O Aholibah, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will raise up thy lovers against thee, from whom thy mind is alienated from me, and I will bring them against thee on every side.

This change corrects the implication that the pronoun, whom, refers to thy lovers, when it actually refers to the Lord.

If you really wanted to know which verses in the entire KJV of the Bible were changed by Joseph Smith, I would suggest that you obtain a copy of the Holy Bible published by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Salt Lake City, Utah ,1979. This bible contains in the footnotes the changes made to every verse in which the changes were small enough to be placed in the footnotes, as in the verse above cited. Changes too lengthy for inclusion in the footnotes are included in a 13-page section at the end of the bible, entitled JOSEPH SMITH TRANSLATION, Excerpts Too Lengthy For Inclusion In Footnotes.
