Deseret News has a column in todays paper about the Chinese Book of Mormon. There is one small mistake in the caption for the image of the first edition.

教義和聖約 20:77 Current 神啊，永恆的父，我們奉您子耶穌基督的名，祈求您為所有領受此餅之人的靈魂，祝福並聖化此餅，讓他們食用，以記得您子的身體，並向您，神啊，永恆的父，證明他們願意承受您子的名，一直記得祂，並遵守祂賜給他們的誡命，使他們能一直有祂的靈與他們同在。阿們。 1st Edition 1974 上帝，永恆的父，我們奉祢子耶穌基督的名，祈求祢為所有領受此餅之人的靈魂，祝福此餅並使之成聖，使他們得食之，以紀念祢子的身體；並向祢，上帝，永恆的父，證明他們願意承受祢子的名，常常記念祂，並遵守祂賜給他們的誡命，使他們得以常有祂的靈與他們同在。阿們。 Gospel Dialogue 1965 永恆的父上帝， 我們奉祢子耶穌基督的名， 祈求祢為所有領受此餅之人的靈魂， 祝福此餅，並使之成聖； 使他們得食之以紀念祢子的身體，並向祢證明， 他們願意承受祢子的名，永遠記念祂，並遵守祂賜的誡命；使他們因而得有祂的靈，常與他們同在。阿們。 It looks as the church is finally getting away from the term ShangDi (上帝).
