Revisions of Bishop Hans Svane’s 1647 Revision of Bishop Hans Poulsen Resen’s Translation of 1607
The uneducated peasants had difficulty understanding the Danish Bible which was practically a direct translation of Martin Luther's Bible. Therefore, as soon as Bishop Hans Poulsen Resen’s Translation of 1607 was published, the undertaking of revising the translation began.
Still most found it very hard to read and understand, and due to turbulent times of war in Europe there was no so-called official translation or revision until the 1819 New Testament revision during the reign of King Frederik VI.
