Description

Excerpt from The New Testament: Newly Translated (From the Greek Text of Tregelles) And Critically Emphasised, With an Introduction and Occasional Notes A suitable return has been attempted in the improvements introduced into this second edition. The entire text of the translation has been subjected to a careful revision and the idiom has been cautiously softened, here and there, where it could be done without material loss of exactness. In cases Of importance, the readings Of the Sinai ms. Have been given, at the foot, throughout the Gospels as this part of the Greek Text had not, when printed, received the advantage of a comparison with this famous and venerable copy. A collation of the results previously arrived at with the Sinai readings will interest many. As the Greek Editor had sometimes set down one reading in his text and another in his margin, in deference to nearly a balance of evidence, it was felt to be more scrupulously fair to him to give some indication of this fact in translation. Accordingly a selection Of such alternative readings will here be found, although of course only in English. In no case has any attempt been made to show what the evidence is for or against text or margin. Results only have been dealt with: it appeared best to say precisely how. Various minor improvements introduced into this Edition will be obvious at a glance such as the greater neatness of the underscored lines, the addition of a series of select references, and the division of the Gospels and Acts into sections with headings and parallels. The Epistles have been left unbroken, inviting repeated perusal from end to end at a sitting. Finally, the Introduction has been wholly rewritten, to adapt it to wider and more practical usefulness. Containing now the pith of the scattered notes on Emphasis given in the First Edition, room has been made for the references and for some additional notes. The critical explanations attached to the new Introduction will make plain to the Scholar the exact principles on which this Translation has been emphasised, and the slight modifications which further study has induced.
