Item description for The New Testament in Modern Speech by Richard Francis Weymouth...

Dr Weymouth's deservedly popular translation of the New Testament into everyday English was first published in 1902, and has been in print through numerous editions ever since, with millions of copies sold. It is in no sense a revision of previous versions, but an original translation from the Greek. Dr Weyland's aim has been to discover how the inspired writers themselves would have expressed their thoughts and described the events of the Gospels had they been writing in the 20th century. In doing so, he has succeeded in rendering the New Testament into dignified, modern English without ecclesiastical or doctrinal bias, making it accessible to Christians of all denominations.

About Various Verses of WEYMOUTH'S  Jan 22, 2007
Among the many of versions of the English New Testament, I like Tyndale's the best. Next is This Weymouth's. However, Weymouth's New Testament has a problem for the various verses from its many editions by different editors. When we read and compare with two more different texts, we cannot realize which one is the original or correctness. This complication is caused by the translator's death (1902) before the publication of his own book. I will show here for an example. The following verses are from 1Timothy 3:16.

1st edition (1903) ed. by E. Hampden-Cook (I have no 1st edition).

2nd ed. (1908) ed. by E. Hampden-Cook
He who appeared in human form, and had His claims justified by the Spirit, was seen by angels and was
proclaimed among the nations, was believed on in the world, and was received up into glory.

3rd ed. (1909) ed. by E. Hampden-Cook
--- that Christ appeared in human form, had His claims justified by the Spirit, was seen by angels and
proclaimed among Gentile nations, was believed on in the world, and received up again into glory.

4th ed. (1924) ed. by S.W. Green & others
--- He who appeared in flesh, proved Himself righteous in Spirit, was seen by angels and proclaimed
among Gentile nations, was believed on in the world, and received up into glory.

5th ed. (1929) ed. by J.A. Robertson
He who appeared in the flesh, was proved righteous by the Spirit, was seen by angels and proclaimed
among Gentile nations, was believed on in the world, and received up into glory.

6th ed. (2001) ed. by Anonymous
He who
Was revealed in the flesh,
And proved righteous by the Spirit;
Was seen by angels,
And proclaimed among Gentile nations;
Was believed on in the world,
And received up into glory.

For reference (from Tyndale's --- 1534)
God was showed in the flesh, was justified in the spirit, was seen of angels, was preached unto the
gentiles, was believed on in earth and received up in glory.

As we have read, all editions have a little different verses one another. {Copeland's this book is the same to 6th edition. --- except brackets part ---}
How can we consider to decide for which verses are correct or not? But it is impossible to select one from these verses. Because, these verses (words) are all truth and correctness, just in the same manner to the other various versions of the New Testament now we have. If I can venture to say, an original, at this case, should be returned to Tyndale's New Testament 1534.
Consequently, as to the Bible, the final approach comes that it is a question of individual preference with which changes sometimes by its age, also.
Love it, but NOT from Copeland Publications...........  Mar 8, 2006
The Weymouth NT is excellent, and is probably the most accurate NT rendered into understandable English, and I would highly recommend it to anyone serious about accuracy in bible study.

However, a warning: There is an edition put out by Kenneth Copeland Publications which has been altered from the original edition put out by Weymouth. In Matthew 25:46, Weymouth CORRECTLY renders it as "Punishment of The AGES" (caps mine), whereas Copeland shamefully inserts "eternal punishment" into his edition. This is altering the original koine Greek meaning of "kolasin aionion". SHAME on Copeland Publications for doing such a thing. DO NOT PURCHASE this edition from Copeland Publishing. It is NOT the correct version.
Caution! Different Hardback  Mar 20, 2005
I really liked what I had heard of this translation, the portions I had seen, so I bought the hardback version here on this site. The other reviewer seems to be referring to a totally different edition. I do not think they should be linked as the same bible only being differnt in binding here on this site, because if the other reviewer is accurate concerning the other edition, it sounds very different from this one.

This hardback edition (light blue with red writing on cover as seen in advertised picture space) has a size of about 5.75' X 3.5' inches. Yes, it's tiny, and on the inside flap it is called a "Pocket edition".

It also seems that this edition is different from the original Weymouth or something. One of the reasons I bought it is because of the translation I had read from it of Romans 5:17 which I originally read as, "For if, through the transgression of the one individual, Death made use of the one individual to seize the sovereignty, all the more shall those who receive God's overflowing grace and gift of righteousness reign as kings in Life through the one individual, Jesus Christ."

However, in this version Romans 5:17 reads, "For if, through the transgression of one, death entered on his reign by means of one man, all the more shall those who receive God's overflowing grace and gift of righteousness reign in life through the One- Jesus Christ."

Which translation is correct? Did Weymouth ever update his translation? Regardless, it seems clear that this version is quite different and I am disappointed with it.
The Weymouth New Testament is still worth reading.  Feb 14, 1998
The television evangelist Kenneth Copeland has done a great sevice to fans of the Weymouth New Testament by provided a well-bound paperback version of the 1902 classic translation at an excellent price. For those who don't know the Weymouth version, it combines the clarity of modern speech with the dignified cadence and vocabulary of Edwardian England in a way that makes a wonderful reading experience. This edition includes a brief sketch of the translator, an English Baptist and reknowned linguist who died in 1902. This is nearly a "text only" version, but the editors do provide references for Old Testament quotations and bracketed synonyms for archaic words--such as "mark! [look/take note]" in Luke 11:31.
