Variant spelling of CUMOMS

Ether 9:19b

  • P: comoms
  • 1830-1981: cumoms
  • Discussion: Cowdery wrote the first instance as cumoms, for some reason Cowdery wrote the second instance as comoms. If we assume that the first occurrence is spelled correctly, as the 1830 typesetter did, comoms is a scribal error.
