Don't bother to translate the Apocrypha

1 Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you concerning the Apocrypha - There are many things contained therein that are true, and it is mostly translated correctly;

This is what the Lord says about the Apocrypha.

There are many true things in it, if it's translated correctly.

2 There are many things contained therein that are not true, which are interpolations by the hands of men.

But there are many things in it that are false.

3 Verily, I say unto you, that it is not needful that the Apocrypha should be translated.

So it's not necessary to translate it. [1]

4 Therefore, whoso readeth it, let him understand, for the Spirit manifesteth truth;

5 And whoso is enlightened by the Spirit shall obtain benefit therefrom;

6 And whoso receiveth not by the Spirit, cannot be benefited. Therefore it is not needful that it should be translated. Amen.
