Julia E. Smith Translation 1876



35:1And Moses will convoke together all the assembly of the sons of Israel, and will say to them, These the words which Jehovah commanded to do them.
35:2Six days thou shalt do work and in the seventh day a holy cessation, a cessation to Jehovah: all doing work in it shall die.
35:3Ye shall not burn a fire in all your dwellings in the day of the rest
35:4And Moses will say to all the assembly of the sons of Israel, saying, This the word which Jehovah commanded, saying,
35:5Take ye from you an offering to Jehovah: all of a willing heart shall bring an offering to Jehovah; gold and silver and brass,
35:6And cerulean purple, and red purple, and double scarlet, and byssus, and goats' hair,
35:7And skins of rams made red, and tahash skins, and acacia wood,
35:8And oil for the light, and aromatics for the oil of anointing and for the fragrant incense,
35:9And stones of onyx, and stones of filling up for the ephod, and for the breast-plate.
35:10And all the wise of heart among you shall come, and shall do all which Jehovah commanded;
35:11The temple, its tent, and its covering, its hooks, and its boards, its bars, and its pillars, and its bases;
35:12The ark and its staves, the cover, and vail of the covering;
35:13The table and its staves and all its vessels, and the bread of the face;
35:14And the chandelier of the light, and its vessels, and its lamps, and the oil of the light;
35:15And the altar of incense, and its staves, and the oil of anointing, and the incense of aromatics, and the covering of the door at the door of the temple;
35:16The altar of burnt-offering, and the grate of brass which is to it, its staves, and all its vessel; and the washbasin and its base;
35:17The curtains of the enclosure, its pillars, its bases, and the covering of the gate of the enclosure;
35:18And the pegs of the temple, and the pegs of the enclosure and their cords;
35:19The garments of service to serve in the holy place; the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons to be priests.
35:20And all the assembly of the sons of Israel will go forth from before Moses.
35:21And they will come, every man whose heart lifted him up and every one whose spirit impelled him, and they brought the offering of Jehovah to the work of the tent of appointment, and for all its work, and for the garments of the holy place.
35:22And they will come, the men with the women, all of a willing heart, they brought rings, and ear-rings, and seals, and globules of gold, all vessels of gold: and every man who lifted up a waving of gold to Jehovah.
35:23And every man with whom was found cerulean purple, and red purple, and double scarlet, and byssus, and goats' hair, and skins of rams made red, and tahash skins, brought
35:24All lifting up an offering of silver and brass, brought the offering of Jehovah: and all with whom was found acacia wood for all the work of the service, brought
35:25And every woman wise of heart spun with her hands, and they will bring the winning, the cerulean purple, and the red purple, the double scarlet and the byssus.
35:26And all the women whose heart was lifted up in wisdom, spun goats' hair.
35:27And the chiefs brought stones of onyx, and stones of filling up for the ephod, and for the breast-plate.
35:28And spice and oil for the light and for the oil of anointing, and for the incense of aromatics
35:29Every man and woman whose heart impelled them to bring for all the work which Jehovah commanded to be done by the hand of Moses, the sons of Israel brought a voluntary gift to Jehovah.
35:30And Moses will say to the sons of Israel, See, Jehovah called by name Bezaleel, the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah.
35:31And he will fill him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all work;
35:32And to invent works of skill, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,
35:33And in working stone for filling in, and in working wood, to work in all work of works of skill.
35:34He gave in his heart to teach, he and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.
35:35He filled them with wisdom of heart, to do all the work of engraving, of inventing, and variegating in cerulean purple, and in red purple, and in double scarlet, and in byssus, and of weaving, and of those doing all work, and of those devising works of skill.

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.
