RE: Di-glot

Dear Bill,

Can anyone tell me where I can get a copy of a Di-glot? I'm not looking for
the normal greek-english NT's, but one that I think was published by the
Jehovah's Witness. It has been a long time since I saw one and need someone
to point me in the right direction.

I have an older Emphatic Diaglott (1942 edition). It is a word for word Interlinear in the first 2/3's column of the page with an English translation in the rightmost 1/3 column. His preface puts much emphasis on departing from what he considers to be the archaic language of the Authorized and Common versions.

Here is what the Title Page says:

The Emphatic Diaglott
Containing the
Original Greek Text
of What is Commonly Styled the
New Testament
With an
Interlinear Word for Word English Translation
A New Emphatic Version
Based on the Interlineary Translation, or the Renderings of Eminent
Critics, and on the Various Readings of
The Vatican Manuscript
No. 1209 in the Vatican Library

By Benjamin Wilson

International Bible Students Assocaition
Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society

You can acquire a copy by contacting a Kingdom Hall and requesting one.
