Luther's Bible

Luther translated the Bible into German (1522-1534) from the original Hebrew and Greek, also making use of the Latin version of Lyra, a Hebrew-Latin text, and an older German translation. His translation has literary merit but contains numerous errors, especially dogmatic, e.g., in Romans 3, it inserts "alone" after "faith." Revised editions of Luther's Bible appeared at Halle, 1883 and 1892, but they retain many of Luther's errors.
