Text transmission

The consonantal Masoretic Text (MT) of Nahum is well preserved, as attested by the Dead Sea Scrolls, with possible corruptions of the Masoretic Text only at 1:4b and 3:18. The canonicity of Nahum is well attested, and there is no significant scholarly debate on this point.[1]

Joseph Smith Translation

The Joseph Smith Translation made no changes to the book of Malachi.[2]

Notes

Footnotes are not required but are encouraged for factual assertions that average readers cannot easily evaluate for themselves, such as the date of King Solomon’s death or the nuanced definition of a Greek word. In contrast, insights rarely benefit from footnoting, and the focus of this page should always remain on the scriptures themselves rather than what someone has said about them. Links are actively encouraged on all sections of this page, and links to authoritative sources are preferable to footnotes.
