A new tool and an update. has announced: "A bidirectional reference translation page for the Book of Mormon both to and from LDS references is also now available."

You will need to click on the announcement link on the home page in order to get to the tool. WAY TO GO, CODER!

Also, the New Testament has been updated to it's most current text (except "note" in 1 John 1:15, which will be updated soon). The Book of Mormon text is also fully updated (except "and" in Enos 1:1, also to be updated shortly.)

When it's done, it's done.

People continue to purchase scriptures from Some are buying updated copies as we work through the proofing of every work in the scriptures.

We have heard that when the leather-bound scriptures are finally published this summer, some will wait to purchase their copy until a second or third printing, in case there are updates.

We want to make it clear that once the text is sent to the printer for the first printing of the leather-bound scriptures (and to and Amazon for final updating) - we have no intention of doing any further work on the scriptures. They will remain as is until the Lord directs otherwise. The only issues that would arise would be obvious typos, and none will be accepted without proof they are typos (too often we are emailed with "typos" that turn out to be restoration of Joseph Smith's work).

Provisions are being made for additional sections to be added to the T&C during the short-term. For the long-term, when we have enough additional sections, several possible solutions will be considered and offered.

Almost missed it

We're very grateful that the tools used by help in checking our work. It was discovered last week that some text in 2 Nephi was completely missing! We want everyone to be aware of it and to know that it was not an intentional deletion. For those with paperback copies of the scriptures, the following sentences may be missing:

2 Nephi 5:5
For shall the prey be taken from the mighty? Or the lawful captive delivered?

These should be the last sentences in paragraph 5. 

The explanation for why it was missing is unclear. Simple keystrokes during editing, for example, or during formatting could account for it. We don't know how it happened. We're just grateful that it was caught.
