I came across a page in an early edition of the Chinese 聖徒之聲 “Voice of the Saints” that has a well known quote by Heber J. Grant.

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). What do you think about the change? The other change I find interesting is the move from the “祢” (ni) to the more formal […]

Since I have in my possession a first edition copy of the chinese Book of Mormon, I thought it might be fun to compare the original translation with the final version used until 2007 with the newest translation in use today. I thought the best scripture to start off the comparison was Moroni’s promise in Moroni 10:3-5. As this […]
