guage of the people. Much good has k n awompllshed

by them and will yet be. But honcsty compeb us is remark that, while each of them has its points of merit,
Ihcy have fallen victim to the p o w r of human traditionalism in varying degrws. Consequently, religious trnclitions, hoary with age, have bccn taken for grnntcd and
gone unchallenged and uninvestigaled. Thcsc have been
intcl~voveninto the translations to color the Ihought.
In support of a preferred religious view, nn Inconsjstency
and unrcasonablcness have bccn insin~ialed into the
tcnchings of the inspired writings.
'I'he Son of God taught that the traditions of creedbound men made the cornmcvldments rind te~chjngsof
God of no power and effect. The endeavor of i l ~ eNew
World Bible TrmsIation Committee has been to avoid
lhis snow of religio~~s
traditionalism. This very effort
nccounts for distinguishing this differently ns a translation ol the "'Christian Greek Scripturcs'~It 1s a traditionnl mistake to divide God's written Word into l.wo
scctions and call the second section, iron1 Mntthcw to
Rcvclation (or Apocalypse), "The New Tcstnnwnt,"
At 2 Corinthians 3: 14 the popular King Jarncs Bible
version tells of the "reading of the old testament", but
thcse the apostle was not referring to the ancient Heb i ~ wScriptures in their entirety from Genesis to Malrtchi. Nor was he meaning that the inspired Christian
writings constituted a "new testament'*. The apostle
was merely speaking of the book written by Moses in
which the old Law covenant with Israel is fully set
forth; for tvhich reason he says, in the next: verse, "when
Moscs is read," The sacred Scriptures, from Genesis to
Revelation (Apocalypse), are one Book, Insplwd by the
one Supreme Author. They cannot he divided into two
parts, one of which may be ignored. The Hebrew Scriptures and the Christian Greek Scriptures are essential
to each other. The latter supplcmcnt the former and

aye an integral part with the former to makc the one

complete Boolr of divine truth. Till now we have been

able to translate only the Cllristi~nGreek Scriptures.
The apostle Peter role: "Ru1 thelv nlr! new heavens
and a new earth t h a t wc are anlnit ing according to his
promise, and in lhesc righteousness is to dtvc!ll." (2 Peter

No uninspired translator or cornmlttce of translators

can cIaim any direct command from t i l e Most High God
to engage in translating the divine Word into another
language. But translation of it is necessary, and that
into many languages, lf Christ's com~nnndfor this momentous day Es to hc fulfilled : "This good news of the
Icingdom nill be preached in all the Inhabited earth lor
the purpose of a tvitncss to all the nalions, and then the
accomplished end will come." So, to do tl~cwork of
translating is an opportunity nnd a privilcgc;.In presenting this translation of the Chr isZ Inn Grcek Scriptures
our confidence has been in lhc llclp of the great Author
of The Book. Our primary dcslre Itas been to seek, not
the approval of men, but that of God, by rendering the
truth of bis inspired tVol*d as p~rrelyand ns consistently
as our consecrated pokvcrs m i 1 1 ~possible. There js no
benefit in self-deception, More tlmn thnt, those who pmvide a translation for the spiritual instruction of others



come under a speeiaI responsibility as teachers before

the divine Judge. Hence our nppreciation of ihc need
of carefulness.

Archaic language we have disposed of altogether, even

prayers and addlrtjsscs t o God. This means we hnvo
evc~yrvhcrcdropped using thc now sanctimonious formal pronouns Ehm, tJt.?/,thinc, tthee and yle, wit11 their
corresponding verb in Acctlans. The original Bible was
written In the living langungc?of the people oC illc day,
Hebrew, Aramaic, and Grcck; and so the Biblc characters addressed Godl and prayed lo him in the same everyday langunge that they employed in speaking to their
fellow crcnt,ures on earth. The trnnslation af the ScripItrl1c5,.: Irilrl :L mt~dcrnI:~nfiungc!should be rendered In the

The Greek text that rve have used as the basls of our

other tcxts, including that prepared by D. Eberharcl
Nestlet' ancl that compiled by the Spanish Jesuit scholar
Jos4 MarIn Boverc and that by the other Jesuit scholar
A. Merk," Whcre we have varled from the reading of
the Wcstcott and Hort text, our footnotes shotv thc basis
for our preferred reading. Wc givc some definiteness to
the background for the renderings of our text by showing in our footnotes the most ancient manuscripts and
versions upon which we call for support. Besides this,
we have oirercd alternative English renderings of the
Greek text, and variant readings of said manuscripts
and versions. Thus in our footnotes we have provided
a sort of critical apparatus for our translation, rather
than a commentary on the Scriptures.

Watch has been kept against taking Iibertles with

of brevity or short cuts and
against substitution of a modern parallel, where t h e
rendering of the original iden makes good sense. To
cach major word we Ilave nssiped one meaning and
have held t o that meaning as far as the context permitted. This, we h o w , llns imposed a restriction upon
our diction, but i t makes for good cross-reference work
and for a more rereliable comparison of ofJated texts or
verses. At the same time, in order to brjng out the
richness m d variety of thc Ianguage of the inspired
writers, we have avoided the rendering of oftwo or more
Greek words by the same EnglisIl word, for this hides
tcxts for the mere sake

the distinction in shade of meaning befmccn the several
words thus rendered. Attct~Uonhas been given t o thr!
tcnscs of vcrl~sto bring out i h c intended clcscription of
the action, position or stale. As the readcr b r c o m ~ s
familiar with our translation be mill discern more and
more Itip linrmony and inter-~greementof our ~*cl~ldcsings in all I h ~ s crespects,
Thc chnptet. and verse numbering follows that of l11e
King James Version, thus mnking possible casy cornparison. Pltlt, instead of making each verse n srpnrnte
paragraph in itself, we have grouped verses Into pnragraphs Tor the proper dcvclopment of a complete
thau~htin all i t s contcxt. Mintlful of the Hebrew hnrlrgcoui~dof the Christian Grmlr Scriphres, tve have followed mninly the Hebrew spcIllng of the namw of pcrsons plnd places, rathcr than that of the Greek text
which imitates the Greek Septuagint Version (LXXS
of the Hchrew Scriptures.

NAME:One of the remarkable facts, not
only a b u t the extant manuscripts of the original G w c k
text, but of many versions, ancient and modern, Is the
absence of t.he divine name. In the andent Hcbmw
Scripturcs that name was represented by t h Pour
letters ;rlnr, ~enesaZlycalled the 'Tetragrammaton" and
represenid by the English letters JHVH (or YHWIT).
In the IIcbrew Script~~res
the nnme, reprcscnted by this
tetmgrummaton, occurs 6,823 times. The exact pronunciation of tlze name is not lrnolvn today, but the most
popular way of rendering it is "Jehovah". The nl~brcvintion for illis name is '"ahh" (or "Yah"), and jt occula
in many of the names found in the Christian Greek
Scriptures. Also in the exclamation Alleluia! or, I-Inllclujah! found four tknes, nt Rcvclation 19: 1,3,4,6,and
meaning '"raise Jah!"


As thc Christian Greek Scriptures were an inspired

addition and supplement to the sacred Hebrew Scriptures,
this sudden disappearance from the Greek text seems
inconsislent, especially when James said to thc npostles
and olclcr disciples at Jcrusalcm about the middlc of
the flrst century: "Syineon ha8 related thoroughly how
God for the first timc turnccl his attention to thc nations to tnkc out of them a pcopIc for his name,'' (Acts
15: 1.4) T l ~ c nin support James made a quotation from

This popular theory has now been flatly disproved by
the rccenlly found remains of a papyrus roll of LXX.
This contains the second half of the book of Deuteronarny.
Not one oC these fragments shows an example of K i l n ~ q
or RE^; used instead of the divjne name, but in each instance thc tetragrammaton is written in Aramnic characters. By permission of its owners we have reproduced
photographs of fragments of thc papyrus mlI illat our
readers may examine thesc occurrences of the tetragrrrmlllcb



maton in such an early copy of LXX.a Authorities fix

the date for this papymw at Ule 2d or 1 s t century B.C,
This means about a century o r bvo after the L X X was
begun. It proves ibat the original L X X did contain the
divine name wherever it occurred in the Heb~*e%v
original, Collsidcring it a sacrilege to use some substitute
as ky'ri.08 o r ~JLc.os', the scribes inserted the tetragrammaton (fin+)at its proper place in the Greek version text.
Did Jesus Christ and his disciples who w ~ o t ethe
Christian Greek Scriptures have copies at hand of the
Greelr Septuagint with the divine name appearing therein in the farm of the tetragrammaton? Yes! The tetrag r a m a t o n persisted in copies of L X X Tor centuries
after Christ and his apostles. About A.D. 128 Aquila's
Greek version had the tetragrammaton in archaic Hebrew letters. About A.D. 245 Origen produced his famous Hexupla, this being a six-column reproduction of

Matthew made mm-e than a hundred quotations from
the inspired Hebrew Scriptures. Se where these quotations included the divine name, he ~vould be obliged

But all the writers of the Christian Greek Scriptures

quoted from the Hebrew Scriptures or from the L X X at
verses where the Name appears, and they could follow
the style then true of copies of the LXX by using the
tetragrammaton in their Greek writings.
The evidence is, therefore, that the original text of
the Christian Greek Scriptures has been tampered with,
the same as the text of the L X X has been. And, at lenst
from the 3d century AD. onward, the divine name In
tetragramaton form has been eliminated from thc tcx t

divine name or who developed an aversion to It, p m l bly under the influence of d 8 ~ m i t i m LITI place of i t

brew Scriptures where the Namc nppeared, the translators infa Hebrew had no othcr rccottrsc than t o rcndcr 7cp'l'i.os or Sl[e.osf back into its original tetragramlnntotz fowl ;r!n9. Thus in l h n t cnrIy Shem Tob version
of Matthew t h e tetragrammaton occurs 16 times. All
towthcr, the appearances of thc sacred tetragrammaton in the 19 ILehretv versions to ~vllichrve have had
access tntnl up to 307 distinct occurrences. These have
thus restored the divine name t o the lnspired Christian
I-row is a modern translator to know or determine
when to render the Greek words Kfipro;. and ee6s into
the clivinc name in his version? By determining where
thc inspired Christian writers hnvc quoted from t11e
Hebrew Scrlplures. Then he must refer back to the
original to Iocate whether the divine nnme appears there.
This way he can determine the identity to give to Je?j'ri.os
and tlbe.08' and hc can then clotl~ethem with personality.
Realizing that this is the time and place for it, we
have followed thk course in rcnde~ingour version of
the Christian Greek Scriptures. To avoid overstepping
the bounds of a translator into the field of exegesis, we
have tried to be most cautious about rcndering the divine nnrnc, always carefulIy considering the Hebrew
Scrlpturcs, We have looked for some agreement with
us by the EIcbrew versions we cotzsultecl to confirm our
own rendering. Thus, out of the 237 times that we have
1mdcrcd the divine name in the lmdy of our version,
them are only two instances whcrc ~ V Phave no support
or agrccrnent from any of the Hebre~vversions. But
in thcsc two instances, namely, Ephesfans 6: 8 and
Colossians 3: 13, we feel strongly supported by the context n11d by related texts in rentlerjr~gthe divine name.
The notes in our lower margin show Ihe support we
have for our renderings from the I-Icbww versions and
other n~~thorities.

Not in all cases where the divine name is shown in

the Iower margin havc we rendered it in the main body
of our version, Thus there are 72 instancea where the
divine name is shown in the margin alone, but not incorporated into thc text, tlre warrant not being strong

On pages 30 20 33 we give the list of the Hebrctv
versions as wcll as othcr pubiications to which wr! have
resorted for support of our renderings, not only a1 the
divinc narnr! hut also of othcr valuable features. Because

Doubtless for many of our readers a support for our
rendering of the divine nnme comes from nn uncxpected
soulce. We do not claim ours to be thc first version to
introduce it into the English translation of t h e Christian Greelr Scriptz~rm.Our list on page 33 shows Illat

they wiIl rejoice over the added clearness it imparts t o

While inclining la view the pronttncintion "Yah+weh"'

they went off.$
23 On that day Sadducees; who say there is obIrD:18
no resurrection, came up to him and asked
"Teacher, Moses said, 'If any man dies 'Egjn
withaut having children, his brother must take @2,3,:$
his wifen in marriage and raise up offspringC E;;!/i3
for his brother.'* 25 NOW there were seven s C ; e m : ~
brothers with us; and the first married and Dc
deceased, and, not having offspring, he left his
wife for his brother." ZG It \vent t h e same way *Lum:m
also with the second and the third, until
through all seven.# 27 Last of all the woman *Mrla:21 1
died. 28 Consequently, in the resurrection, to
which of the seven will she be wile? f o r they
'Mr 12:23
all got her."*
Lu 20:33

of the Iiving.""* ss On hearing that, the crowds zE;z;2&
were astounded at his teaching."
34 After the Pharisees heard that he had
put the Sadducees to silence, they came together in one group. w And one of them, versed
in the Law, mked, testingo him: a" "Teacher: zE;g,ai,15

lave your neighbor as yourself.'' Lo On

41 NOW while the Pharisees were gathered
together Jesus asked them:O *'" "What do YOU

continued outside in lonely places. Yet they
kept corning to him from all sides."

And when Jesus saw their faithAhe said to
the paralytic : "Child, your sins0 are forgiven."
Now there were some of the scribes0 there,
sitting and reasoning in their hearts:' ' "What
is it this man is sayhg in this manner? I-Ee is
blaspheming. Who can forgive" sins except one,
God?"O But Jesus, having discerned irnrnedialcly by his spirit that they were reasoning
that way in themselves, said to them: "Why
are you reasoning these things in YOUR hearts?"
Which is easier, to say t o the paralytic, Your
sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up and pick
up your cot and walk'?* lo But in order lor you
men to know that the Son of man* has autharity to forgive sins upon the earth,""-he
to the paralytic: l1 "I say to you, Get up, pick
up your cot, and go ta your home."" 12Atthat
he did get up and immediately picked up his
cot and walked out in front of them a l l , 9 0

glorified God, saying: "We never saw the like

and violently convulsed him. However, Jesus
rebuked the unclean spirit and healed the boy

all began to be astounded at the glorious powera of Gad.

said: "What are you loolcing for?" or, ' m y
do you talk with h c r ? 7 u T l ~ ewoman, therefore, left her water-jar nnd wcnt aff into the

But hc said to them:

39 Now many of the Sa,rnur'i.tans out of that
f6:53 city put faith in him" on account of the word
of the woman who saId fn witness: "He told
me aU the things I did." 4 0 Therefore when the


,. ,:,

JOHN 4:41-52
Sa.marri.tans came to him, they begnn mldng
him to stayo with them: and he stayed there
two days.' 'l Consequently many more believed
on account of what he said," "and
they began
to say to the woman: "We do not believe any
longer on account of your tdk; for we havc
h e a d for ourselves and we know that this man
is for a certainty the savioP' of the world."
43 After t h e two days he left there for Gal'ilee. 4 4 J~SLIS
himelf, however, bore witnessO that
in his owr~native land a prophet has no honor."
UThrm, therefore, he arrived in Gal'i-lee, the
Gd.i.Ietansreceived him, because they had =en
a11 the things he did in Jerusalem at tlle feast,'
for they also had goneD to the feast.
46 Accordingly he came again to Ca%a of

and began asking him to come down and heal
his son, for he was at the point of dying. 4 A HOWever, Jesus said to him: "Unless YOU peoplc see
signs* and wonders, YOU will by no means be
lieve." 4D Tlze attendant of the king said to him:
"Master,&come down before m y youngO child

Jesus spoke to him and went his way. " But
already while he rvas on his way down his slave5
met him to say that his b o p was living."
&%erefore he began to tonqt1il-e of them thc
hour in which he got better in health. Accord-

ingly they sdd t o him: "Yesterday a t the

to him: "See, you have become sound in health.

('SO they went each one to his home.

"But Jesus went to the ~nonnt of Olives. Z A t daybreak,

to teach thelll. " Now the scribrs and the P h a r i s e ~ sbroaght a worna n caught a t adultery, and, after standing her in tlieir illidst,
' they snid to hini : 'Tearher, this wornan has b p ~ l icaught in the

to stone such kind of u-omen. T l ~ a t ,really, do you sayt' Of
course, thrp were saying this to put hi111 to the test, i n order to
have souietlting with which to accuse him. But Jcsus bent down
a n d began to write with l ~ i sfinger in the ground. When they
persisted in nslring hi~ri,he straiglitened u p and said to thcm:
'Let the one of Y O I i that is ~ i n l r s sb~ the first l o throw a storie a t
her.' And bending over npain he kcpt on writing in the ground.
But those who heard this began going dnt, one by one, starting
with the older men of influence, nnd he mas left alone, nltd the
wonl:ln that was in tlieir midst. l o Straightening up, Jesw said to
her: 'n70innzi, where are they l Did no one condemn you'!' l 1 She
snid: 'K'o one, sir: Jesus said: 'KAther do I condemn you, (30

swer Jesus said to them: "Even if I do bear
