Julia E. Smith Translation 1876



15:1And Jehovah will speak to Moses, saying,
15:2Speak to the sons of Israel, and say to them, When ye shall come into the land of your dwellings, which I give to you,
15:3And ye did a sacrifice to Jehovah, a burnt-offering or a sacrifice to separate a vow, or in willingness, or in your assemblies, to make an odor of sweetness to Jehovah, from the oxen or from the sheep:
15:4And he bringing near, brought near his offering to Jehovah, a gift of fine flour, the tenth mingled with the fourth of the bin of oil.
15:5And wine for a libation, the fourth of the hin, thou shalt do upon the burnt-offering or to the sacrifice for the one lamb.
15:6Or to the ram thou shalt do a gift of fine flour, two tenths mingled with oil, the third of the hin.
15:7And wine for a libation the third of the hin, thou shalt bring an odor of sweetness to Jehovah.
15:8And when thou shalt do the son of a cow, a burnt-offering or sacrifice to separate a vow, or peace to Jehovah:
15:9And he brought upon the son of a cow a gift of fine flour, three tenths mingled with oil, half the bin.
15:10And wine thou shalt bring for a libation, half the hin, a sacrifice, an odor of sweetness to Jehovah.

15:12According to the number which ye shall do, so shall ye do to the one according to their number.
15:13Every native shall do thus with these to bring near a sacrifice, an odor of sweetness to Jehovah.
15:14And when a stranger shall sojourn with you, or whoever in the midst of you for your generations, and he did a sacrifice, an odor of sweetness to Jehovah; as ye shall do, so shall he do.
15:15One law for you of the assembly, and for the stranger sojourning; a law forever to your generations: as ye, so the stranger shall be before Jehovah.
15:16One law and one judgment shall be to you, and to the stranger sojourning with you.
15:17And Jehovah will speak to Moses, saying,
15:18Speak to the sons of Israel, and say to them, In your going into the land where I bring you there,
15:19And it was in your eating from the bread of the land, ye shall lift up a lifting up to Jehovah.
15:20The first of your groats, a cake, shall ye lift up a lifting up; as the lifting up of the threshing floor, so shall ye lift it up.
15:21From the first of your groats, shall ye give to Jehovah a lifting up, for your generations.
15:22And when ye shall err, and shall not do all these commands which Jehovah spake to Moses,
15:23All which Jehovah commanded to you by the hand of Moses from the day which Jehovah commanded, and onward to your generations;
15:24And it was if from the eyes of the assembly there was done in error, all the assembly did a bullock, the son of a cow, for a burnt-offering, for an odor of sweetness to Jehovah, and its gift and its libation, according to judgment, and one he goat of the goats for sin.
15:25And the priest expiated for all the assembly of the sons of Israel, and it was forgiven to them; for it is an error; and they brought their offering a sacrifice to Jehovah, and their sin before Jehovah, for their error.
15:26And it was forgiven to all the assembly of the sons of Israel, and to the stranger sojourning in the midst of them, to all the people in error.
15:27And if one soul shall sin in. error, and he brought a she goat the daughter of a goat, for sin.
15:28And the priest expiated for the soul erring, in sinning in error before Jehovah, to expiate for him; and it was forgiven to him.
15:29The native among the sons of Israel, and to the stranger sojourning in the midst of them, one law shall be to you, for doing in error.
15:30And the soul which shall do with a high hand, from the native, and from the stranger, it reproaches Jehovah, and that soul was cut off from the midst of its people.
15:31For it despised the word of Jehovah, and broke his command; being cut off, that soul shall be cut off; its iniquity upon it
15:32And the sons of Israel shall be in the desert, and they shall find a man gathering wood in the day of the Sabbath.
15:33And they having found him, will bring him gathering wood to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the assembly.
15:34And they will put him in watch, for it was not specified what shall be done to him.
15:35And Jehovah will say to Moses, Dying, the man shall die: all the assembly stoned him with stones without the camp.
15:36And all the assembly shall bring him forth without the camp, and they shall stone him with stones, and he shall die; as Jehovah commanded Moses.
15:37And Jehovah will speak to Moses, saying,
15:38Speak to the sons of Israel, and say to them, They made to them fringes of flowers upon the wings of their garment for their generations; and they gave upon the fringes of the wing a thread of cerulean purple;
15:39And it was to you for fringes, and ye saw it, and ye remembered all the commands of Jehovah, and ye did them; and ye shall not seek after your heart, and after your eyes, which ye committed fornication after them.
15:40So that ye shall remember, and ye did all my commands, and ye were holy to your God.
15:41I am Jehovah your God who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, to be to you for God; I am Jehovah your God.

Julia E. Smith Translation 1876

The Julia Evelina Smith Parker Translation is considered the first complete translation of the Bible into English by a woman. The Bible was titled The Holy Bible: Containing the Old and New Testaments; Translated Literally from the Original Tongues, and was published in 1876.

Julia Smith, of Glastonbury, Connecticut had a working knowledge of Latin, Greek and Hebrew. Her father had been a Congregationalist minister before he became a lawyer. Having read the Bible in its original languages, she set about creating her own translation, which she completed in 1855, after a number of drafts. The work is a strictly literal rendering, always translating a Greek or Hebrew word with the same word wherever possible. Smith accomplished this work on her own in the span of eight years (1847 to 1855). She had sought out no help in the venture, even writing, "I do not see that anybody can know more about it than I do." Smith's insistence on complete literalness, plus an effort to translate each original word with the same English word, combined with an odd notion of Hebrew tenses (often translating the Hebrew imperfect tense with the English future) results in a translation that is mechanical and often nonsensical. However, such a translation if overly literal might be valuable to consult in checking the meaning of some individual verse. One notable feature of this translation was the prominent use of the Divine Name, Jehovah, throughout the Old Testament of this Bible version.

In 1876, at 84 years of age some 21 years after completing her work, she finally sought publication. The publication costs ($4,000) were personally funded by Julia and her sister Abby Smith. The 1,000 copies printed were offered for $2.50 each, but her household auction in 1884 sold about 50 remaining copies.

The translation fell into obscurity as it was for the most part too literal and lacked any flow. For example, Jer. 22:23 was given as follows: "Thou dwelling in Lebanon, building as nest in the cedars, how being compassionated in pangs coming to thee the pain as in her bringing forth." However, the translation was the only Contemporary English translation out of the original languages available to English readers until the publication of The British Revised Version in 1881-1894.(The New testament was published in 1881, the Old in 1884, and the Apocrypha in 1894.) This makes it an invaluable Bible for its period.
