Julia E. Smith Translation 1876



5:1And they went beyond the sea, to the country of the Gadarenes.
5:2And to him coming out of the ship, quickly a man met him from the monuments with an unclean spirit,
5:3Who had a dwelling among the monuments; and neither with chains could any one bind him:
5:4For he had been bound many times with fetters and chains, and the chains were torn asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: and none could tame him.
5:5And always, night and day, was he in the mountains, and among the monuments, crying, and mangling himself with stones.
5:6And having seen Jesus from afar, he ran and worshipped him.
5:7And having cried with a great voice, he said, What to me and thee, Jesus, O Son of God most high I adjure thee by God, that thou torture me not.
5:8For he said to him, Come forth out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
5:9And he asked him, What the name to thee? And he answered, saying, My name, Legion: for we are many.
5:10And he besought him much that he would not send them out of the country.
5:11And a great herd of swine was feeding there near the mountains.
5:12And all the demons besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we might enter into them.
5:13And quickly Jesus permitted them. And the evil spirits having come forth, entered into the swine: and the herd rushed through the precipice into the sea, (and they were about two thousand;) and they were choked in the sea.
5:14And those feeding the swine fled, and they announced in the city, and in the fields. And they came forth to see what is it that was done.
5:15And they come to Jesus, and they see him possessed with the demon, sitting down, and being clothed, and of sound mind: and they were afraid.
5:16And they having seen, recounted to them how it was to him possessed with the demon, and concerning the swine.
5:17And they began to beseech him to depart out of their bounds.
5:18And he having gone into the ship, he having been possessed with a demon besought him that he might be with him.
5:19And Jesus permitted him not; but he says to him, Retire to thy house, to thine own, and announce to them what things the Lord did to thee, and he pitied thee.
5:20And he went away, and began to proclaim in Decapolis what Jesus did to him: and all were wondering.
5:21And Jesus having passed over again in the ship on the other side, a great crowd was gathered together to him: and he was by the sea.
5:22And, behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue comes, Jairus by name; and having seen him, he fell at his feet,
5:23And he besought him much, saying, That my little daughter is at the last extremity: that, having come, thou Mightest put the hands upon her, so that she might be saved; and she shall live.
5:24And he went away with him; and a great crowd followed him, and they pressed him.
5:25And a certain woman, being in a flowing of blood twelve years,
5:26And having suffered many things by many physicians, and having expended all of her own, and not having been benefited, but having come rather to the worse,
5:27Having heard concerning Jesus, having come in the crowd behind, she touched his garment.
5:28For she said, That if I touch his garment, I shall be saved.
5:29And quickly the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she knew in the body that she is healed from the plague.
5:30And Jesus, having quickly known in himself the power having gone out of him, having turned round in the crowd, he said, Who has touched my garments?
5:31And his disciples said to him, Seest thou the crowd pressing thee, and sayest thou, Who has touched me?
5:32And he looked round about to see her having done this.
5:33And the woman, afraid and trembling, having known what bad been upon her, came and fell down before him, and spake all the truth to him.
5:34And he said to her, Daughter, thy faith has saved thee; retire in peace, and be whole from thy plague.
5:35He yet speaking, they come from the ruler of the synagogue, saying, That thy daughter is dead: why yet dost thou importune the Teacher?
5:36And Jesus having quickly heard the word spoken, says to the ruler of the synagogue, Fear not, only believe.
5:37And he permitted not any to follow him, except Peter, and James, and John the brother of James.
5:38And he comes to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and sees an uproar, they weeping and wailing much.
5:39And having time in, he says to them, Why make ye an uproar, and weep? the young child is not dead, but sleeps.
5:40And they laughed at him. And he, having cast them all out, takes the father and mother of the young child, and those with him, and goes where the young child was lying.
5:41And having taken the hand of the young child, he says to her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Little girl, I say to thee, arise.
5:42And the little girl arose quickly, and walked; for she was of twelve years. And they were affected in mind with great amazement.
5:43And he charged them much that none should know this thing; and he spake to give her to eat.

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.
