Notes


  1. The Hebrew kaśdîm does not reflect directly the neo-Assyrian/Babylonian spelling kaldū. In this time period (Iron Age and earlier) Assyrian/Babylonian –šd- had shifted to -ld-. The Hebrew text may have managed to preserve the older pronunciation. The Book of Mormon form no doubt reflects the King James Bible rendering and not necessarily what might have been on the plates.
