Question: Is the phrase "they humbled themselves and" in Gilbert Hunt's The Late War a "rare phrase"?

The critics note that "These phrases are rare—meaning that they are not found in other contemporary books of Joseph's time, and that they are not found in the King James Version of the bible" [1]

Chris Johnson, Duane Johnson, ""A Comparison of The Book of Mormon and The Late War Between the United States and Great Britain," http://wordtreefoundation.github.io/thelatewar/

In order to make this a "rare phrase," the critics must include the word "and"

  • The Late War 15:22: "they humbled themselves, and"
  • Book of Mormon, Alma 5:13: "they humbled themselves, and"

The core phrase "they humbled themselves" appears in the Bible

  • 2 Chronicles 12:7: "they humbled themselves"
