Jehovah Bible

Date and language:1762 - Dutch

Translation: On the title page there is written (in Old Dutch): "Here is, because of important and well-known reasons, God's remembrance-name JEHOVAH kept not translated". In 1755 the first 'Statenbijbel' (State Bible) was published using the name JEHOVAH in the Old testament everywhere the Tetragrammaton is found. That is why this edition became to be known as the 'Jehovah Bible'. Afterwards there were some new editions.

Translator:The name of the printer or the publisher is not mentioned out of fear of adverse consequences. It was forbidden to alter the State Bible.

God's name: We are showing: Psalms 18 and Psalms 19.
