Changes in the Book of Mormon

2 Nephi: Changes in the Book of Mormon

  1. First appearance of the word "Christ" in the modern BoM. "Christ" appeared earlier (1 Nephi 12:18) in the 1830 edition, but was changed to "Messiah" to avoid contradicting this verse. 10:3
  2. 1830: seraphims
    Now: seraphim
    The 1830 edition copied the KJV error in the plural of seraph. 16:2, 6
  3. 1830: Wo me!
    Now: Wo is unto me! 16:5
    The omitted italicized word "is" was later corrected.
  4. 1830: Here I; send me.
    Now: Here I am; send me. 16:8
    The omitted italicized word "am" was later corrected.
  5. 1830: ...they shall be a white and delightsome people...
    Now: ...they shall be a pure and delightsome people.... 30:6
    "White" was changed to "pure" to try to soften the obvious racism of this prophecy.
