Variant spelling of JERSHON

Alma 27:22

  • O: Jershur > Jershon
  • P, 1830-1981: Jershon

Alma 28:1

  • P: Jeshon
  • Discussion: Spelled Jershur (perhaps because of preceding -er sound), then immediately corrected by Cowdery in O. This is the only time Jershon was ever misspelled in O; Cowdery only misspelled Jerson once in P, where in Alma 28:1 he spelled it as Jeshon.
