Julia E. Smith Translation 1876



6:1After these Jesus departed beyond the sea of Galilee, of Tiberias.
6:2And a great crowd followed him, for they saw his signs which he did upon the sick.
6:3And Jesus went up into the mount, and sat there with his disciples.
6:4And the pascha was near, the festival of the Jews.
6:5Then Jesus having lifted up the eyes, and seen that a great crowd comes to him, says to Philip, Whence shall we buy loaves that these might eat?
6:6And this he said trying him: for himself knew what he was about to do.
6:7Philip answered him. Loaves of two hundred drachmas will not suffice them, that each of them should take some little.
6:8One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, says to him,
6:9There is one little boy here, who has five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are these among so many?
6:10And Jesus said, Make the men recline. And there was much grass in the place. Then the men reclined, the number about five thousand.
6:11And Jesus took the loaves; and having given thanks, distributed to his disciples, and the disciples to the reclining; and likewise of the small fishes, as many as they wished.
6:12And when they were filled, he says to his disciples, Gather the fragments remaining over, that nothing should be lost.
6:13Then gathered they, and filled twelve baskets of the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over to them having eaten.
6:14Then the men, having seen the sign which Jesus did, said, That this is truly the prophet coming into the world.
6:15Then Jesus having known that they were about to come and carry him of forcibly, that they might make him king, departed again to the mount alone.
6:16And when it was evening, his disciples went down to the sea.
6:17And having entered into a ship, they came beyond the sea to Capernaum. And already was there darkness, and Jesus had not come to them.
6:18And the sea, a great wind blowing, arose.
6:19Then having urged forward about twent-five or thirty stadia, they behold Jesus walking upon the sea, and being near the ship: and they were afraid.
6:20And he says to them, I am; be not afraid.
6:21Then they wished to take him into the ship: and the ship was quickly at land to which they retired.
6:22The morrow, the crowd standing beyond the sea having seen that no other small vessel was there, except that one into which his disciples had entered, and that Jesus entered not with his disciples into the small vessel, but his disciples departed alone;
6:23(But also other small vessels came out of Tiberias near to the place where they ate bread, the Lord having returned thanks:)
6:24When the crowd therefore saw that Jesus is not there, nor his disciples, they also entered into ships, and came to Capernaum, seeking Jesus.
6:25And having found them beyond the sea, they said to him, Rabbi, when camest thou here?
6:26Jesus answered them and said, Truly, truly, I say to you, ye seek me, not because ye saw signs, but for that ye ate of the loaves, and were satisfied.
6:27Work not for food perishing, but food remaining to eternal life, which the Son of man will give you: for him God the Father sealed.
6:28Then said they to him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
6:29Jesus answered and said to them, This is the work of God, that ye should believe in him whom he has sent.
6:30Then said they to him, What sign doest thou, that we might see, and believe thee? what workest thou?
6:31Our fathers ate manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
6:32Then said Jesus to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Moses has not given you bread from heaven; but my Father gives you true bread from heaven.
6:33for the bread of God is he coming down from heaven, and giving life to the world.
6:34Then said they to him, Lord, always give us this bread.
6:35And Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life: he coming to me should not hunger; and he believing in me should not thirst.
6:36But I said to you, That ye have seen me, and believe not.
6:37All that the Father gives me shall come to me; and he coming to me I will not cast out.
6:38For I have come down from heaven, not that I might do my will, but the will of him having sent me.
6:39And this is the will of the Father having sent me, that all which he has given me, I should not loose of it, but raise it up in the last day.
6:40And this is the will of him having sent me, that every one seeing the Son, and believing in him, should have eternal life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
6:41Then murmured the Jews about him, because he said, I am the bread having come down from heaven.
6:42And they said, Is not this Jesus, Joseph's son, whose father and mother we know? how then says he, That I have come down from heaven?
6:43Then answered Jesus and said to them, Murmur not with one another.
6:44None can come to me, except the Father having sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
6:45It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every one therefore having heard and learned of the Father, comes to me.
6:46Not that any one has seen the Father, except he being from God, he has seen the Father.
6:47Truly, truly, I say to you, he believing in me has eternal life.
6:48I am the bread of life.
6:49Your fathers ate manna in the desert, and died.
6:50This is the bread which coming down from heaven, that whoever should eat of it, and he should not die.
6:51I am the living bread which having come down from heaven: if any one eat of this bread, he shall live forever: and also the bread which I shall give is my flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.
6:52Then the Jews contended with one another, saying, How can he give us the flesh to eat
6:53Then said Jesus to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in yourselves.
6:54He chewing my flesh, and drinking my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
6:55For my flesh is truly food, and my blood is truly drink.
6:56He chewing my flesh, and drinking my blood, remains in me, and I in him.
6:57As the living Father sent me, and I live through the Father: also he chewing me, the same also shall live through me.
6:58This is the bread which having come down from heaven: not as your fathers ate manna, and died: he chewing this bread shall live forever.
6:59He said these, teaching in the synagogue, in Capernaum.
6:60Then many of his disciples, having heard, said, This is a hard word; who can hear it
6:61And Jesus knowing in himself that his disciples murmur for this, said to them, Does this offend you?
6:62If then ye see the Son of man going up where he was before
6:63It is the spirit making alive; the flesh profits nothing: the words which I speak to you are spirit, and are life.
6:64But there are some of you who believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they are not believing, and who he is going to deliver him up.
6:65And he said, Therefore have I said to you, that no one can come to me, except it be given him of my Father.
6:66From this many of his disciples went away back, and walked no more with him.
6:67Then said Jesus to the twelve, And ye will not go away?
6:68Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go away? thou hast the words of eternal life.
6:69And we have believed, and known, that thou art Christ, Son of the living God.
6:70Jesus answered them, Have I not chosen you twelve, and of you one is a devil?
6:71And he spake of Judas Iscariot, of Simon: for he was about to deliver him up, being one of the twelve.

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.
