Variant Spelling of NAZARETH

1 Nephi 11:13a

  • O: nathareth
  • P, 1830-1981: Nazareth

1 Nephi 11:13b

  • O: nathareth
  • P, 1830-1981: Nazareth
  • Discussion: This place was spelled nathareth twice by Scribe 3 in O. It is possible that this spelling represents the original pronunciation of this name, or at least at NEPHI's time (assuming it existed then). Or the scribe merely anticipated the final -th early, or mispronounced the name.
