     	That is good to know, I suspected there were more such errors.

	Anyway, if I indeed get permission from IBB I will try to get
a pristine copy.

	It would be nice to know which Atualizada and which Corrigida
are these.  Both have quite recent second editions, markedly better
than the originals, but anyway I doubt you will be able to get
permissions on them.  No harm trying.

     	The Trinitarian AFAIK is a Corrigida too, as is Fiel, but they
are unimpressive.  If they are truly aligned with the TR-only
(Majority fans, AKA KJV-onlyism) sect, they could despise copy rights
enough to grant permission.

   	BTW, I too oppose copy rights, but not on the same grounds as

  	No NIH syndrome here, it is only that instead of merely
relying on authority it is better to understand the authority's
