Mormon 6:14

  • P: Jeneum >+ Joneum/Jeneum
  • 1830-1907, 1911-1920: Joneam
  • 1981: Jeneum
  • Discussion: Scribe 2 wrote Jeneum, but later corrected it to either Joneum or Jeneum (it is hard to distinguish between e and o here); the 1830 has Joneam. U's were often misread as a's, and -eum is an ending found elsewhere in the Book of Mormon, in NEUM and SHEUM.
