This morning, I just unwittingly found a small difference in the scriptural text between the 1981 printed edition and the online scripture text:
1981 printed edition
I call upon the weak things of the world, those who are unlearned and despised, to thrash the nations by the power of my Spirit.
2011 online edition
I call upon the weak things of the world, those who are unlearned and despised, to thresh the nations by the power of my Spirit.
Yes, I know that “thrash” and “thresh” are two forms of the same word, having the same meaning. I also know that the current online edition incorporated small changes to the supplementary material (i.e., chapter headings) and in a few cases to the punctuation (e.g., Moro. 3:3; see my study “Textual Variations in the Supplemental Text of the Book of Mormon“).
But I did not know that the online edition had incorporated any changes to the actual wording of the scriptures. Very interesting! I wonder if this particular change came from the Joseph Smith Papers project.
(Or look at the date. … Maybe it’s all just an elaborate April Fools Day joke the people over at the scripture department are playing on us. If so, maybe I should thrash them … 🙂 )
