Julia E. Smith Translation 1876



7:1And when he completed all his words in the ears of the people, he came to Capernaum.
7:2And a certain centurion's servant being sick, was about to die; which was highly valued by him.
7:3And having heard of Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to him, asking him, that having come, he would save his servant.
7:4And they approaching to Jesus, besought him earnestly, saying, That he is worthy to whom he will bestow this:
7:5For he loves our nation, and has built us a synagogue.
7:6And Jesus went with them. And now he being away not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying to him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not fit that thou shouldest come under my roof;
7:7Therefore neither thought I myself worthy to come to thee: but speak in a word, and my servant shall be healed.
7:8For I also am a man set under authority, having soldiers under myself, and I say to this, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes: and to my servant, Do this, and he does.
7:9And Jesus having heard these, wondered at him, and having turned to the crowd following him, he said, I say to you, Neither have I found so much faith in Israel.
7:10And those sent, having turned back to the house, found the servant being sick, restored to health.
7:11And it was in continuation he went to a city called Nain; and sufficient of his disciples went with him, and a great crowd.
7:12And as he drew near to the gate of the city, behold, he dead was carried out, the only son of his mother, and she a widow; and a sufficient crowd of the city was with her.
7:13And having seen her, the Lord felt compassion for her and said to her, Weep not.
7:14And having come, he touched the coffin, and they bearing stood. And he said, Young man, I say to thee, arise.
7:15And the dead sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother.
7:16And fear took all; and they praised God, saying, That a great prophet has risen up among us; and That God has reviewed his people.
7:17And this word went out about him in all Judea, and in all the country round about.
7:18And John's disciples announced to him of all these things.
7:19And having called certain two of his disciples, John sent to Jesus, saying, Art thou he coming? or should we expect another?
7:20And the men, having approached to him, said, John the Immerser has sent us to thee, saying, Art thou he coming? or should we expect another?
7:21And in that same hour he cured many of diseases, and scourges, and evil spirits, and to many blind he conferred the favor to see.
7:22And Jesus having answered said to them, Having gone, announce to John what ye saw and heard; for the blind look up, the lame walk, the leprous are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor are announced good news.
7:23And happy is he, whoever should not be offended in me.
7:24And the messengers of John having departed, he began to say to the crowds concerning John, What went ye forth into the desert to see? A reed shaken by the wind?
7:25But what went ye out to see? A man clothed in soft garments? Behold, those in glorious clothing, and being in luxury, are in royal abodes.
7:26But what went ye out to see? A prophet? Yea, I say to you, superior to a prophet.
7:27This is he of whom it has been written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee.
7:28For I say to you, Among the begotten of women none is a greater prophet than John the Immerser; and the less in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
7:29And all the people having heard, and the publicans, justified God, having been immersed with the immersion of John.
7:30And the Pharisees, and they pertaining to the law, rejected the counsel of God against themselves, not immersed by him.
7:31And the Lord said, To whom shall I liken the men of this generation? and to whom are they like?
7:32They are like children sitting in the market-place, and calling to one another, and saying, We played the flute to you, and ye danced not; we lamented to you, and ye wept not.
7:33For John the Immerser came, neither eating bread, nor drinking wine, and ye say, He has a demon.
7:34The Son of man came eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a man, a glutton, and wine-drinker, a friend of publicans and sinful.
7:35And wisdom was justified of all her children.
7:36And a certain one of the Pharisees asked him that he would eat with him. And having come into the Pharisee's house, he reclined.
7:37And, behold, a woman in the city, who was sinful, knowing that he is reclining at table in the Pharisee's house, having brought an alabaster box of perfumed oil,
7:38And stood at his feet behind, weeping, been to wet his feet with tears, and wiped with the hairs of her head; and she kissed his feet, and anointed with the perfumed oil.
7:39And the Pharisee having called him, seeing, said within himself, This, if he were a prophet, had known who and what race of woman which had touched him: for she is sinful.
7:40And Jesus having answered, said to him, Simon, I have something to say to thee. And he says, Teacher, speak.
7:41Two debtors were to a certain money-lender: one owed five hundred drachmas, and the other fifty.
7:42And they not having to pay, he bestowed as a gift upon both. Which of them therefore will love him the more? Say thou.
7:43And Simon, having answered, said, I suppose, that to whom he bestowed more favor. And he said to him, Thou hast judged rightly,
7:44And having turned to the woman, he said to Simon, Thou seest this woman? I came into thy house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: and she wet my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.
7:45Thou gavest me no kiss: and she from when I came in left not kissing my feet.
7:46Thou anointedst not my head with oil: and she anointed my feet with perfumed oil.
7:47For which I say to thee, Her many sins are remitted; for she loved much: and he to whom little is remitted, loves little.
7:48And he said to her, Thy sins are remitted.
7:49And they reclining together began to say in themselves, Who is this who also remits sins?
7:50And he said to the woman, Thy faith has saved thee; go in peace.

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.
