r FRIDAY, AUGUiST IS, 1»5S Here's Story Behind New Version, of Bible (EBITOR'S NOTB: Th. bl»- tm project In book publishing history—the new "Revised Standard Version of the Holy Bible"— w "l be clt the presses Sepl. SO. Here's the first of three definite • rllcki which tell the background s *ory «f this historic publishing event—and why U »»« needed.) By FRANCES DVNLAP IJEKON i (Distributed by NBA Service) NEW YORK (NBA)—The time U 1000 B.C. Out, on the hill, or p a i_ «stlne shepherds gather around. their campfire. As the stars shine flown and God seems close, one of the shepherds begins a story whlla the others listen raplly. It is a story of Abraham and Moses and the • greatness of God, told In the words : the sheep herders know and love. The centuries pass. It Is A.D. 1528 A devout English family, at risk of 'severe punishment, hides within their home a copy of the forbidden Tyndale New Testament, produced on that amazing Invention _ the Printing press—in English! A.D. Mil. Persecution is ove and the English-speaking wot hails the new King James verslo of the Bible, "appointed to be rca In churches." Thu« the Word of God throng the ages manifested Itself to h People, Always the one who pn served God's message wrote I whatever language his people woul understand — Hebrew, Aramal Greek, English. From language t language, the word has spread an til today it appears in more tha p, 1000 tongue». And now II t, 1952—the new -«st milestone in man's longing t comprehend the word for hij ow •day. On Sppt. 30, the recenlly-com •• Pleted "Revised standard Versio of the Holy Bl»le" will becnm available in tha U.S. and Canada— the result of long years of devote labor by 32 Bible scholars. The Standard Bible Committee headed by Dean-emeritus Luthe . ffeigle ot Yale Divinity School wn .ippointed In 1930 by the Interns ttonal Council of Churches o Christ In the u. s. A. On behalf o . « Protestant denominations, it wa authorized to produce a translation desljned for public and privaU worship, making UM of the bes available Biblical research, mamis cript discoveries and archeologica finding*. Th. flrri p,rt of In. task—th« • New TmUment—appeared In 194« Now the completed Bible Is ready for lMu«nee to coincide with Christian Education Week, Sept 26 to Oct. «. Simultaneous observances In 3000 communities on Sept. 30 wll niark the biggest project In book: ^publishing history—, fir.t printing of alrnont one million Tolumej. Prom th« scholars' «landpolnt however, the most significant record the "Revised Standard Version' -can achieve Is that of becoming the people's Biblt, as th« King James .version did In lt« day. Wfcy WM » nritkm Be«4e4r What ive been made? How diet ite« arrive at decisions on M.Brtrurtnf out a revision of the Bl. ble li not a new Idea. Two versions authorized by the Church of England preceded the King James—all within 72 yean. But within the following 341 years, only two authorized revisions of the English Bible have been made. The first was in 1885. followed by our American variant tn 1901; the second Is the "Revised Standard Version of 1953.'.' • Both versions are revisions of the King James. Why did It need to be revised? • First, the King James translators had only a dozen or so late medle- !i»al manuscripts of the New Testament. Today's- scholars can count more than 5000 mistakes In the Greek text; the King James group had no aids for understanding the'i Hebrew text of the. Old Testament «uch ai Biblical scholarship now . . Dean Luther Wtifle directed 1 Hie »ork of 32 Bible scholars. . . possesses. Second, the translators of 1611 and even of the 1870's did not have the present-day contributions of archeology to help them understand tha vocabulary, idioms and grammar of o! New Testament Greek. Third, many English words have changed meaning since the days of the Elizabethan language in which the King James version is preserved. T* lake a few examples: "Conversation" in 1611 meant "behavior." What ivas ••comprehend" in now "overcome," an •mansion" ig "abiding place." Th word "suffer" is now translate )t," thus easing the minds, of peo pie like the woman who wondere why Jesus wished small boyi Woman', "so p.m, Cowell _Btrnnnrn,!JB (AMC.)
