Boaz - Variant Spelling

- Mormon 4:20

1: Beaz > Boaz/Beaz

A: Beaz

B: Boaz 1837 – 1981 RLDS 1908

Discussion: The scribes often wrote their o's so they looked like e's, so it is difficult to decide which word was intended. The 1837 edition has Boaz though, after the biblical name, so that is the more likely choice

Summary: Skousen accepts Boaz
