Variant spelling of GALILEE

2 Nephi 19:1

  • P: Gallilee
  • 1830-1981: Galilee
  • Discussion: This is one of the instances that suggests that Joseph Smith did not spell out biblical names to his scribes, assuming that they already knew the proper spelling or that the compositor would fix it (which he did in this case).
