    It was put together from 1898 to 1901 or so. Mostly laymen (women included) were responsible for the project. It turned out well surprisingly.

    Here are a few snips from Romans.

    1:18 : who,by their wicked lives,are stifling the truth
    1:27 : incurred in their own persons the inevitable penalty of their perverseness
    2:8,9 : wrath and anger,distress and dispair,will fall upon every human being who persists in wrong-doing
    2:15 : their consciences corrobating it
    3:3 : but will their want of faith make God break faith?
    3:12 : they have one and all become depraved
    5:14 : Adam foreshadows the One to come
    6:14 : Sin shall not lord it over you
    7:13 : the Commndment showed how intensely sinful sin is
    7:14 : the Law is spiritual,but I am earthly
    8:31 : in light of all of this? If God is on our side,who can there be against us?
    9:19 : For who withstands his purpose?
    12:2 : Do not conform to the fashion of this world.
    12:4 : in the human body there is a union of many parts
    12:10 : set an example of deference to one another
    14:13 : Rather let this be your resolve
    15:19 : starting from Jerusalem and its neighborhood

    Great! I think some laymen should be on every Bible translation committee.

    I expect many would nit pick your deference to others, especially those dreaded dictatorial elitists who see themselves as ever so special.
