Most of our readers are aware that a well organized effort is being made, both in Eng land aud iu this country, toward a thorough revision of our cdtmnon English Bible. The movement had its origin in England, in the convocation of Canterbury, ou the 6th of May, 1870. A committee ofbisliops and pres byters was then appointed, whose members arranged pieliminarics, and invited learned gentlemen of different denominations, who are organized into two companies, one on the Old Testament aud one on the New, to cooperate in the good work. Mainly through the instrumentality of Dr. Philip Scaff of New York, American cooperation has been arranged for: and two corresponding compa nies have been appointed in this country, representing all Christian denominations, and these have adopted rules and commenced their work in earnest. The venerable Dr. 'Woolsey of New Haven is chairman of the New Testament company, and the Rev. Professor Green of Princeton chairman of the Old Testament company. It is understood that the gentlemen compos ing these companies meet monthly in New York, at the Bible house, and spend about two days together in hard work upon the re vision. It is understood, also, that they have in their hands a provisional revision already made iu England by their collaborators there, who commenced their work nearly three years ago. The part to be played in the re vision by this country, accordingly, is to be a subordinate, but not perhaps, a less useful part. It is expected that the expenses of the British revision will be borne by the booksellers who will have an ultimate copy right on the book; while the expenses of the American revision have thus far been borne, and doubtless will be borne to the end, by voluntary contributions from the friends of the work, a fact which well illustrates the different ways of doing things in England and the United States. Both companies in both countries are la niku au »;aiucj'j micut uvu lu uisiuLAlt: the framework of the old translation, not to impair the idiom, nor mar the beauty nor dis turb the associations of the English text as it stands, but to bring in all their improvements under one or other of these seven heads, namely, Greek text, errors, inaccuracies, ob solete expressions, proper names, accessories and arrangement. We have no donbt at all that very great amendments to the old ver sion may be brought in under this plan, but we also think that the greatest difficulties of the revisers will be found at just this point, They will thus necessarily confront the old time difficulty of sewing new cloth upon an old garment—of pouring new wine into old bottles. The highest possible results of bibli cal inteipretation into English will probably never be reached until the thoughts of the original Scriptures are thought out anew into unexceptionable English. Whatever differ ence of opinion, however, there may be on this point, there can be none whatever on this other, namely, that the word of God de serves the very cleanest and the very best dress in which it can be clothed. If any of our readers are of the opinion that the English Bible is good enough as it is, that it needs no revision at all, we beg to submit to them two or three considerations opposed to their view. The first considera tion relates to the original text. Absolute fidelity to this is indispensable in all transla tion and criticism. But the Greer text of the middle ages, called sometimes the Tex tus Bcccptus, from which our Testament was translated, is found to be corrupt in many places. When the oldest and purest copies of the Greek text, and especially the Sinai copy, which was first opened up to our own day, arc carefully collated together, it is found how late and impure are many passages in the text from which our Testa ment was translated. When the present version is done, the omis sions in it will excite probably quite as fmuch remark as any revision of other passages will excite. One of the sentences that will be missed is Ijje conclusion of the Lord’s prayer, “lor thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever, amen”, which the al most unanimous opinion of scholars reject as no Dart of the original text. Another nas sage not found in the best manuscripts, and regarded by nearly all of the critical editors as uugenuine, is the account of the woman taken in adultery; although this is almost universally regarded as a genuine relic of the teachings of Christ, while not. a part of the original text of John’s gospel. Another passage, which it is a vast relief to thinking and devout minds to find spurious is this verse in the fifth chapter of John’s gospel, namely: “For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water; whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in, was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.” This verse has probably caused more skeptical thoughts to English readers than any other, verse of the New Testament; and justly so; for it is the only verse of the New Testament that speaks of a standing miracle—that im plies asjuccession of miraculous cures wrought independently of any specific moral end whatever, ard wrought independently al?o of any particular frame of mind ou the part of the recipient of the blessing. The blessing is made to depend on accident or force. “Who soever then first,” and so on. Moreover, there is something grotesque and entirely dif ferent in spirit from the rest of the New Tes tament miracles, in the alleged troubling of the water by an angel. With what kind of a stick did he stir it up? is the involuntary and irrepressible thought of every reader who stops to think. Now it is perfectly easy to account for the way in which that verse crept into the text. The Jews were superstitious about that pool; they ascribed miraculous ef ficacy to it after each of its intermittent buh blings-up; some copyist wrote upon the mar gin of the text the Jewish explanation of the bubbling, and their belief in its power, in or der to account for the verse preceding, which states that a great multitude of “impotent folk” lay there; and some subsequent copyist allowed the marginal gloss a place in the text. What Christ himself thought of that super stition is manifesto 1 clearly enough in His healing the impotent man by one word of His power. Ifa divine miracle had been really going on in the pool, our Lord would doubt less have assisted the man into it, and nbt have wrought an unnecessary miracle Him self. His own action pays a poor compliment to the pool: and it is a real pleasure to know that this obvious interpolation will not per plex believing sculs much longer. A second consideration relates to the changes that have taken place in the Enelish language itself since our translation was made. Living languages are perpetually changing. The best-translation ot the Scrip tures that was possible, two hundred years ago, is necessarily a poor translation now, owing to the inevitable changes ot language: and the best possible translation now will necessarily be a very imperfect one, two hun dred years hence, for the same reason. The number of words in our English Bible already obsolete in the sense which they were in tended to convey,is very considerable. “Take thought,” “carriages,” “wist,” arc merely specimens of them. Some people will be surprised to learn that the word “its” is not found in our English Bible; and more people still would be sur prised if their attention were called to the cir cumlocutions and awkwardness to which our translators were obliged to resort on account of the lack of that word, which has not at that time been developed in the English lan guage. They were ohliged to use ss substi tutes for it “whereof,” and “thereof,” and especially “his,” sometimes to the extreme contusion of the sense; and in one memora ble passage they were compelled to change the gender altogether, passing from “it” over to “she,” on account of the impossibility of carrying on the translation without the pos sessive of “it,” which they did not possess. The passage is in the 80th Psalm; and the exigencies of the translation, going from “it” to “she” and back again to “it”, almost de stroys a wonderfully fine allegory. A third consideration relates to the trans lation as a translation. We accord great merit to the translation; hut it also has great defects. It runs back to the time when the Greek language was far less understood than it is now. The translators of some of the books are unknown. King James’s transla tors were rather revisers than translators, as they themselves say on their title-page. The fact that he “authorized”this version will not go far with the descendants of the Pilgrims, who (led to Holland to escape his tyranny. The Pilgrims themselves never used this ver sion, hut clung to the Geneva Bible, as many others do to the Bishop’s Bible, so that the “authorized” version made its way hut very slowly even in England. A great defect of the translation is the lit tle attention it pays to the particles of transi tion. This makes the discourse oftentimes much more abrupt and dislocated than it is in the original, and sometimes loses us the sense altogether. Inspired men ought to write as connectedly as uninspired, and as a matter of fact they do, but we often miss the thread of the connection bv awkward manage ment of the transitions. 'There is a striking instance of this in the 15th of John—“Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you,”—which seems irrelevant, because the word in the verse before, which ought to be translated “cleanseth,” is trans lated “purgeth,” and because the particle “already” is translated “now.” Ti,,. m.n tion of faith in Hebrews XI is wretchtl L the extent of yielding no sense at all on the he most i,!>P°rtant word in the Testament. The passage ought to i r‘S°'V faith is the evidence of things ho£?f for, a conviction of things not seen.”8 in by quoting Dr- Schafr’s words ‘u'n”ard t0 tfie revmon. “When the whole shall be completed, it will go to the English jectioi,118 T?u?Phes for their adoption or re fafl1 w,fiylt,9?w,“merit3 il win stand or !a,- ,'Ve finely believe that it will gradually taKe the Place ot the authorized version.” The Moon and Weather Alter testing the question again and again dusioirth1at<the0m^At3illaVC to theron OTCr^th^'weaOicr^agreeing ^dth'the*1?™* duke, that it is nonsense to place any faith'll! her as a weather predictor. Time was when she was thought absolute mistress of the sea Pliny has the following lunar weather wisdom • Fine weather, wind, or rain may be looked for according as the moon rises with a pure white, red, or swarthy light. If at full moon half the disk is clear, fine weather is betoken ed; if red, wind; if black, rain. If at the ris ing of the new moon the upper horn is ob scured, three will be .1 prevalence of wet when she is on the wane; if the lower bom is ob scured, theee will be rain before she attaius her full; if both horns appear obtuse, a fright ful tempest is near; if they are sharp and erect, high winds may be expected. Darwin declares it as a sure sign of coming rain when the moon’s head is hidden in haloes. A correspondent of Notes and Queries says a large circle round the moon, with a north or northwest wind, predicates stormy weather; if the wind conies from any other quarter there will still be rain, but less of it. If, how ever, the moon rises alter sunset, the appear ance of a ring round her is not so significant as the Dutch rhyme puts it: A ring round the moon. May pass away soon; But a ring round the san Gives water in the tun. An old Spanish proverb says the circle of the moon never filled a pond, but the circle of the sun wets a shepherd; while an English rhvme Drononnees: If ronnd the moon a circle’s scon Of white, and all the sky’s serene. The,following day, you may divine, w ill prove exceeding flno. A uil— W hene’er, in autumn or in spring, A mist the moon doth with it bring, At noon the sun will bright appear, The evening be serene aad clear. The turning up of the horn* of the new moon is another sign of fair weather. “There’s no likelihood of a drop now, an’ the moon lies like a boat there,” saya some body in Adam Bede. Southey notices this no tion in one of his letters, “Poor Liltledalo has this day explained the cause of the rains which prevailed lor the last five weeks, by a theory which will probably be as new [to you as it is to me. ‘I have observed,’ he says, ‘that when the moon is turned upward we have fine weather after it, but when it is turned down, then we have a wetseason; and the reason I think is that when it is turned down it holds no water, like a basin, you know, and clown it comes.’ ” It is a very common belief that the weather depends upon the moon changing before or after midnight; a belief absurd on the -face of it, as has since been well observed, ’he moon may change before twelve at Westchester,and after twelve at St. Paul's. Dr. Adam Clarke was obvious of this fact when he put forth a weather prognosticator, through all the lunations of eacH year forever, showing the observer what kind of weather will most probably follow the entrance of the moon into any one of her quarters, and that so near the truth as to seldom or never be found to fail. Our read ers can easily decide as to the worth of the reverend doctor's weather guide; they have only to note the time of the moon’s entrance upon a new quarter, and compare the actual result with that anticipated by the prognosti cator. It would be useless to note his formu lated observation, for like all other prophesies concerning the lunar phenomena, there Is a total neglect of the fact that weather is local and not universal. In other words, the change in the moon that is sup posed to have given good weather in the south of England, has probably been attend ed with exceedingly bad weather in Scotland. —Chamber’s Journal. .niKCeiiLANEOl'X NOTH’ KM. - » A Question of Time.—The recent cough or cold, that without proper treatment may be come chronic and last for months, can be radi cally cured by a few doses of that invaluable pectoral elixir, Halt's Haney of Ilorchound and Tar.
