We will e-mail the text to you in Rich Text Format that you can read with your word processor. We encourage you to review it and respond within two weeks.

Please be aware that the Saints use a variety of editions of the Inspired Version. The first edition was published in 1867; that is the edition Price Publishing Company reprinted in 1997. Many corrections and changes were made in a “New Corrected Edition” in 1944. And other changes appear in the editions of 1970, 1974, 1991, and 2006. The Scripture Committee has compared the various editions and made choices of wording when differences existed. The text also has limited editorial corrections, including some pronouns, verb tenses, consistency, capitalization, and punctuation. Therefore, it does not exactly match any books currently in print. Still, it should be very familiar to all readers of the Inspired Version.

We welcome your assistance and appreciate your desire to make this publication the best it can be, a publication that is worthy of conveying the Word of God.
