Variant spelling of JEHOVAH

2 Nephi 22:2

  • P: Jehovah >jg JEHOVAH
  • 1830-1981: JEHOVAH
  • Discussion: Reportedly not capitalized in the Book of Mormon Manuscripts; changed by John Gilbert as a convention from the KJV. The other instance of Jehovah in the Book of Mormon (Moroni 10:34) was not capitalized, but this is probably because it is not a biblical quote.
