Excerpt from The New Testament of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ: Published in 1526, Being the First Translation From the Greek Into English
In the notation of Various Readings from the versions here embraced, infra Zineam, regard has in the main been had Only to essential differences, i. E. To differences in sense to have extended it to particles and phrases, except when these had a bearing on the whole texture of the verse, would have been tedious to the collator, unasked for by readers, and encumber ing to the work. The above rule was not indeed rigorously Observed. Even verbal changes deserve a place, when curi osity might be amused by the recovery Of some fast-fading word, or the ceaseless current of the language illustrated by another in a novel sense. Especially was it the wish, that the relative sourcesof the Version in common use might be Obvious to all and words and clauses, not Of much moment perhaps but as found in this, have been pointed out, when they might be traced to either Of the earlier works, in particular. Of the class Of various readings, there is a considerable number, which recur so Often, that, to avoid their needless repetition, it was thought best, to give them once for all in a Tabular List with the answering expressions Of Tyndale. This list will be found among the last Of the preliminary pages, and the examples in question will not, except in a few instances of ac cidental insertion, be met with in the margin.
