The prophet Joseph Smith felt he was divinely appointed to create an inspired version, or "new translation" of the Bible. It was his belief that over time inefficient and careless translators and transcribers had committed many errors. Thus, Joseph Smith's version consists of numerous additions, deletions, and rearrangements.
