Excerpt from The Emphasised Bible, Vol. 3: A New Translation, Designed to Set Forth the Exact Meaning, the Proper Terminology and the Graphic Style of the Sacred Originals; Proverbs-Malachi The sacred joy experienced during the twelve years of hard work bestowed upon the produc tion of the emphasised bible might excuse the vain desire that another life could be vouch safed in which to reap the fruit of antecedent toil; but all this is sobered and subdued by the reﬂection that the fire itself, human and divine, must prove every man's work, of what sort it is. It remains only to render hearty thanks to the Scholars whose labours have made this work possible; to the Reviewers whose encouragement has lightened a protracted though pleasant task; to the Printers and Correctors of the Press whose enterprise and patience have done much to make this Bible a pleasure to look on and an instrument to handle with facility; but first and last - especially in view of preserved life and eyesight and mental freshness to Him from whom all blessings ﬂow.
