Thank you and God bless you Rainbow Missions.
My thanks also to K. C. Allen for all of his work on the World English Bible as the online WEB Master.
I would also like to thank the good people at TRUE GRACE MINISTRIES for their website where I
found the World English Bible.
I made three major changes to the WEB translation in the writing of Exhortations.
1) The WEB in the original uses Yahweh for God's name instead of "Lord" or "God." I agree with the
revisers that God's proper name is really separate from the titles "Lord" or "God" in the original
Hebrew, thus the proper name Yahweh. For the purposes of Exhortations I was much more
concerned about cultural familiarity so I changed Yahweh to "the Lord," "God" and "Lord of
2) In the WEB version pronouns are often not capitalized when referring to God. I decided to
capitalize all pronouns that referred to Yahweh because I didn't want there to be any ambiguity
when Yahweh was speaking or being addressed.
3) Finally, because Exhortations is a formal doctrinal statement I got rid of most of the contractions
used in the WEB version.
I made all of these changes because I felt it was what the Lord wanted me to do. If I have offended
any one associated with the WEB in making these changes, I apologize.
