Noah Webster's Bible 1833

 

   

12:1Now the LORD had said to Abram, Depart from thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, to a land that I will show thee:
12:2And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
12:3And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
12:4So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken to him, and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed from Haran.
12:5And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went to go forth into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
12:6And Abram passed through the land to the place of Sichem, to the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.
12:7And the LORD appeared to Abram, and said, To thy seed will I give this land: and there he erected an altar to the LORD, who appeared to him.
12:8And he removed from thence to a mountain on the east of Beth-el, and pitched his tent, having Beth-el on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he erected an altar to the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD.
12:9And Abram journeyed, going on still towards the south.
12:10And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to dwell there; for the famine was grievous in the land.
12:11And it came to pass, when he had come near to enter into Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon:
12:12Therefore it will come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they will say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive.
12:13Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.
12:14And it came to pass, that when Abram had come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.
12:15The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.
12:16And he treated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he-asses, and men-servants, and maid-servants, and she-asses, and camels.
12:17And the LORD afflicted Pharaoh and his house with great plagues, because of Sarai, Abram's wife.
12:18And Pharaoh called Abram, and said, What is this that thou hast done to me? why didst thou not tell me that she is thy wife?
12:19Why saidst thou, She is my sister? so I might have taken her to me for a wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take her, and go thy way.
12:20And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him: and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.

Noah Webster's Bible 1833

While Noah Webster, just a few years after producing his famous Dictionary of the English Language, produced his own modern translation of the English Bible in 1833; the public remained too loyal to the King James Version for Webster’s version to have much impact.
