The Moffatt Translation of the New Testament
cover image of The Moffatt Translation of the New Testament, for sale in New Zealand

James Moffatt was born in 1870 and educated in Glasgow, Scotland.
He entered the ministry and became Professor of Greek and New Testament Exegesis at Mansfield College, Oxford in 1911.
"The Bible is not always what it seems to those who read it in the great prose of the English version or indeed, in any of the conventional versions. What it is may be partly suggested by a new rendering, [Moffatt's translation], that is, a fresh translation of the original, not a revision of any English version."
Moffatt rearranged the biblical texts (i.e. switching chapter orders), based on his judgments about the content, authorship, and historicity of the texts.
