Julia E. Smith Translation 1876



13:1And he going out of the temple, one of his disciples says to him, Teacher, see of what country the stones, and of what country the buildings!
13:2And Jesus having answered, said to him, Seest thou these great buildings? stone upon stone shall not be left which shall not be loosed.
13:3And he sitting in the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him apart,
13:4Say to us, when shall be these things? and what the sign when all these be about to be finished?
13:5And Jesus having answered began to say to them, See ye lest any should lead you astray:
13:6For many shall come in my name, saying, That I am; and they shall lead many astray.
13:7And when ye hear of wars and rumors of wars, be not terrified: for it must be; but the end is not yet.
13:8For nation shall be raised against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be earthquakes in places, and there shall be famines, and commotions: these the beginnings of anguish.
13:9And see ye to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues shall ye be stripped: and shall be set before rulers and kings for my sake, for testimony to them.
13:10And the good news must first be proclaimed to all nations.
13:11And when delivering up, they bring you, take no care beforehand what ye speak, neither bestow attention: but whatever should be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for not ye are speaking, but the Holy Spirit.
13:12And brother shall deliver brother to death, and father child; and children shall rise up against parents, and kill them.
13:13And ye shall be hated by all for my name's sake: and he having remained to the end, the same shall be saved.
13:14And when ye see the abomination of desolation, that spoken by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him reading understand,) then let them in Judea flee to the mountains:
13:15And he upon the house, let him not come down into the house, nor let him come in, to take any thing away out of his house:
13:16And he being in the field, let him not turn back to take up his garment.
13:17And woe to them having in the womb, and to them giving suck in those days!
13:18And pray ye that your flight be not of winter.
13:19For those days shall be pressure, such as there has not been from beginning of creation which God created till now, and should not be.
13:20And except the Lord shortened the days, no flesh should be saved: but for the chosen whom he chose, he shortened the days.
13:21And if any say to you, Behold, here Christ; or, behold, there; believe ye not:
13:22For false Christs and false prophets shall be raised up, and shall give signs and wonders, to deceive, if possible, also the chosen.
13:23But see ye; behold, I have foretold you all things.
13:24But in those days, after that pressure, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
13:25And the stars of heaven shall be falling out, and the powers which in the heavens shall be shaken.
13:26And then shall they see the Son of man coming in clouds with much power and glory.
13:27And then shall he send his messengers, and gather together his chosen from the four winds, from extremity of earth to extremity of heaven.
13:28And from the fig tree learn ye a parable; When its young shoot be tender, and cause the leaves to grow, ye know that summer is near.
13:29So also ye, when ye see these things done, ye know that it is near at the door.
13:30Truly I say to you, that this generation should not pass away, till all these things should be.
13:31Heaven and earth shall pass away, and my words shall not pass away.
13:32And concerning that day and hour none knows, nor the messengers in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
13:33See, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
13:34As a man travelling, having left his house, and having given power to his servants, and to each his work, and he commanded the guard of the door that he should watch.
13:35Watch therefore: for ye know not when the lord of the house comes, at eve, or midnight, or cock-crowing, or morning.
13:36Lest having come suddenly he find you sleeping.
13:37And what I say to you, I say to all, Watch ye.

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.
