Julia E. Smith Translation 1876



13:1And certain were present in that time announcing to him of the Galileans, whose blood Pilate mingled with their sacrifices.
13:2And Jesus having answered, said to them, Think ye that these Galileans were sinful above all the Galileans, because they have suffered such things?
13:3No, I say to you: but except ye should change the mind, ye shall all likewise perish.
13:4Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and killed them, think ye that these were debtors above all men dwelling in Jerusalem?
13:5No, I say: but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
13:6And he spake this parable: A certain had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came seeking fruit on it, and found not.
13:7And he said to the vine-dresser, Behold, three years I am come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find not: cut it off; wherefore also does it leave the earth unemployed?
13:8And he having answered says to him, Lord, let it go also this year, till I shall dig round it, and cast dung:
13:9Whereas also it might bear fruit: and if not, afterwards thou shalt cut it off.
13:10And he was teaching in one of the assemblies in the sabbaths.
13:11And, behold, there was a woman having a spirit of weakness eighteen years, and was bent together, and not able wholly to lift up the head.
13:12And having seen her, Jesus called to, and said to her, Woman, thou hest been loosed from thy weakness.
13:13And he put his hands on her: and immediately she was set upright, and honoured God.
13:14And the ruler of the assembly having answered, feeling pain because Jesus cured on the sabbath, said to the crowd, Six days there are in which they ought to work; in those therefore, coming, be ye cured, and not the day of the sabbath.
13:15Then answered the Lord and said, Hypocrite, does not each of you on the sabbath loose his ox or ass from the stall, and leading away, give to drink?
13:16And this being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound, behold, eighteen years, ought she not to be loosed from this bond the day of the sabbath
13:17And he saying these things, all opposed to him were ashamed: and the crowd rejoiced for all the glorious things done by him.
13:18And he said, To what is the kingdom of God like? and to what shall I liken it?
13:19It is like a kernel of mustard, which a man having taken, cast into his garden; and it grew, and became into a great tree; and the fowls of heaven encamped in its young shoots.
13:20And again he said, To what shall I liken the kingdom of God?
13:21It is like leaven, which a woman having taken, hid in three measures of wheaten flour, until the whole was leavened.
13:22And he went through cities and towns, teaching, and making his passage to Jerusalem.
13:23And a certain said to him, Lord, if few saved? And he said to them,
13:24Strive earnestly to enter through the narrow gate: for many, I say to you, shall seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
13:25From the time when the master of the house should rise up, and shut the door, and ye begin to stand without, and knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us: and having answered, he will say to you, I know not whence ye are:
13:26Then will ye begin to say, We ate and drank before thee, and thou didst teach in our streets.
13:27And he will say, I say to you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workmen of iniquity.
13:28Weeping shall be there and gnashing of teeth, when ye see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you cast without.
13:29And they shall come from the risings, and the settings, and from north, and south, and they shall recline in the kingdom of God.
13:30And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.
13:31In the same day certain Pharisees came near, saying to him, Come out, and go from thence: for Herod wishes to kill thee.
13:32And he said to them, Having gone, say to that fox, Behold, I cast out demons, and complete cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I am completed.
13:33But I must go to day and to morrow and the following: for it is not possible for a prophet to perish out of Jerusalem.
13:34Jerusalem, Jerusalem, killing the prophets, and striking with stones those having been sent to her; how often I wished to gather thy children together, which manner a hen her young brood under the wings, and ye would not!
13:35Behold, your house is left to you a desert: and truly I say to you, That ye should not see me, until it should come when ye say, Praised he coming in the name of the Lord.

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.
