Excerpt from The Apocrypha: Translated Out of the Greek and Latin Tongues; Being the Version Set Forth A. D. 1611 Compared With the Most Ancient Authorities and Revised A. D. 1894 The Westminster Committee completed their first revision of the First Book of Maccabees on July 5, their second revision on November 3. 1881. Their first revision Of the Books Of Judith and Tobit was completed on July 6, their second revision on October 11, 1882. With regard to the Greek text they derived great assistance from Dr. Scrivener. But the number Of places in which it was thought right to abandon readings that seemed to be represented in the Authorised Version was not large. The English Version was found to require much care. In the First Book Of Maccabees, for example, a well-known peculiarity Of the writer had been obliterated by the repeated introduction, with or without the use or italics, of the words God' and the Lord, ' which never occur in the best Greek text. Archbishop Trench worked with the Committee until they were close to the end Of the First Book Of Maccabees. Dean Stanley also attended up to about the same time: Principal Brown did not take any part in the work. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
