 SELECTIONS FROMTHE JOSEPH SMITH TRANSLATION OF THE BIBLEANDEXCERPTS TOO LENGTHY FOR INCLUSION IN FOOTNOTESFollowing are selected portions of the Joseph Smith Translation of the King James Version of theBible (JST). The Lord inspired the Prophet Joseph Smith to restore truths to the Bible text that hadbecome lost or changed since the original words were written. These restored truths clarified doctrineand improved scriptural understanding. The passages selected for the Guide should help improveyour understanding of the scriptures regardless of the language into which they are translated.Because the Lord revealed to Joseph certain truths that the original authors had once recorded, theJoseph Smith Translation is unlike any other Bible translation in the world. In this sense, the word
is used in a broader and different way than usual, for Joseph’s translation was morerevelation than literal translation from one language into another. For more information about theJST, see“Joseph Smith Translation (JST)”in the Guide to the Scriptures.
