1 Nephi 3:165 And the angel of the Lord said unto me, Thou hast beheld that the book proceeded forth from the mouth of a Jew; and when it proceeded forth from the mouth of a Jew it contained the plainness of the gospel of the Lord, of whom the twelve apostles bear record; and they bear record according to the truth which is in the Lamb of God:

And the angel of the Lord said unto me: "Thou hast beheld that the book proceeded forth from the mouth of a Jew; And when it proceeded forth from the mouth of a Jew it contained the fullness of the gospel of the Lord, of whom the twelve apostles bore record, And they bore record according to the truth which is in the Lamb of God;

Comment:


In this passage the phrase "fulness of the gospel" found in the Original MS was incorrectly transcribed into the Printer's MS as "plainness of the gospel." The phrase "plainness of the gospel" occurs nowhere else, while "fulness of the gospel" appears seven other times in the Book of Mormon.

Behold I say unto you that the house of Israel was compared unto an olive tree by the Spirit of the Lord which was in our fathers

Behold I say unto you that the house of Israel was compared unto an olive tree by the Spirit of the Lord which was in our father

Comment:


Nephi was answering the questions of Laman and Lemuel about their father Lehi's vision, and throughout this chapter references to their father occur ten times. An eleventh reference to their father is found in the Original MS at this verse which was incorrectly copied into the Printer's MS as fathers and thus the plural form found its way into the printed editions.

Wherefore the record of my father and the genealogy of his forefathers and the more part of all our proceedings in the wilderness are engraven upon those first plates of which I have spoken

Comment:


Sometimes the omission of a word leaves a passage less precise. The Original MS of this verse mentions "those first plates of which I have spoken," specifying the large plates of Nephi and their prior construction.

2 Nephi 1:120 And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life, through the great mediation of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil:

And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life through the great Mediator of all men, Or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil,

And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life through the great mediation of all men or to choose captivity and death according to the captivity and power of the devil

And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life through the great Mediator of all men Or to choose captivity and death according to the captivity and power of the devil

Comment:


Evidently the typesetter misread Oliver Cowdery's final r. In further support of this view is the fact that mediator occurs nowhere else in the Book of Mormon except the very next verse. By following the Printer's MS phrase "the great mediator of all men" it becomes clear that one must choose between two real individuals: either Christ the mediator orSatan the adversary.

Comment:


The Printer's MS correctly has arms (in the sense of "weapons"), but the printed editions have an anachronistic reference to armies too early in the history of the little Nephite colony. The earliest authentic occurrence of army or armies in the Book of Mormon (excluding the passage in question) occurs much later in the Words of Mormon 1:13, after which it properly appears often in the text.


1908RCE

Alma 16:66 And Korihor put forth his hand, and wrote, saying: I know that I am dumb, for I can not speak; and I know that nothing, save it were the power of God, could bring this upon me; yea, and I also knew that there was a God.

And Korihor put forth his hand and wrote, saying: "I know that I am dumb, for I cannot speak; And I know that nothing, save it were the power of God, could bring this upon me, Yea, and I always knew that there was a God.

And Korihor put forth his hand and wrote saying I know that I am dumb for I ^ cannot speak And I know that nothing save it were the power of God could bring this upon me Yea and I always knew that there was a God

Comment:


In the sixteenth chapter of Alma is related a dramatic encounter between the prophet Alma and the anti-Christ Korihor. After asking for a sign, Korihor is struck dumb. He writes that the devil told him that there was no God and taught him the things he should preach. Korihor claims he eventually convinced himself into believing them. The question could properly be asked whether Korihor knew all along the falsity of his teachings.


1908RCE
Alma 16:108 O Lord God, how long wilt thou suffer that such wickedness and iniquity shall be among this people?

"O Lord God, how long wilt Thou suffer that such wickedness and infidelity shall be among this people?

O Lord God how long wilt thou suffer that such wickedness and iniquity shall be among this people

O Lord God how long wilt Thou suffer that such wickedness and infidelity shall be among this people

Comment:


Oliver Cowdery seems here to have misread the Original MS infidelity as iniquity. In Alma's fervent prayer after witnessing the apostate practices of the Zoramites, he uses the word infidelity to describe their condition of holding apostate doctrines. The meaning of infidelity in this verse is not marital unfaithfulness, but rather a lack or "want of faith or belief." Joseph Smith elsewhere used infidelity to mean unbelief


1908RCE
Alma 17:49 For he promised unto them that he would reserve these things for a wise purpose in him, that he might shew forth his power unto future generations.

For He promised unto them that He would preserve these things for a wise purpose in Him, that He might show forth His power unto future generations.

For he promised unto them that he would reserve these things for a wise purpose in him that he might shew forth his power unto future generations

For He promised unto them that He would preserve these things for a wise purpose in Him that He might show forth His power unto future generations

Comment:


The omission of the initial letter was occasioned by Oliver Cowdery's method of dividing the word preserve: the p was placed at the end of one line and the rest of the word at the beginning of the next. In this chapter preserve occurs six other places, but reserve is not found anywhere in Alma. This verse is essentially a restatement of a message in a previous verse which used preserve.


1908RCE
Alma 17:69 Yea, let all thy doings be unto the Lord, and whithersoever thou goest, let it be in the Lord; yea, let thy thoughts be directed unto the Lord; yea, let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord for ever; counsel the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good:

Comment:


In Alma's discourse to his son Helaman as found in the Original MS, he repeats the word all three times. The last all (which had been written at the end of a line) was left out of the Printer's MS, and thus it is missing from the printed editions. A loss of emphasis results.


1908RCE
Alma 19:82 Now behold, my son, I will explain this thing unto thee: for behold, after the Lord God sent our first parents forth from the garden of Eden to till the ground, from whence they were taken; yea, he drew out the man, and he placed at the east end of the garden of Eden, cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the tree of life.

Now behold, my son, I will explain this thing unto thee. For behold, after the Lord God sent our first parents forth from the garden of Eden to till the ground, from whence he was taken, Yea, He drove out the man and He placed at the east end of the garden of Eden cherubim and flaming sword which turned every way to keep the tree of life -

Now behold my son I will explain this thing unto thee For behold after the Lord God sent our first parents forth from the garden of Eden to till the ground from whence he was taken Yea He drove out the man and He placed at the east end of the garden of Eden cherubim and ^ flaming sword which turned every way to keep the tree of life

Comment:


Though it is very faint in the Original MS, careful analysis of each occurrence of both drew and drove in the Oliver Cowdery portions of both manuscripts shows that the Original MS reading here is indeed drove. This passage refers back to the account in Genesis 3:24 where the Hebrew has gdras, which means "drive out, drive away, cast out." The reading drew, however, would place the Lord outside the garden, pulling Adam out! For further support of drove, compare the statement earlier in this verse that "the Lord God sent our first parents forth"


1908RCE
Helaman 5:119 And as they went forth to lay their hands on him, behold, he did cast himself down from the wall, and did flee out of their lands, yea, even unto his own country, and began to preach and to prophesy among his own people.
