vol´un - tā́ - ri : For the sake of variety the King James Version in Leviticus 7:16 ; Ezekiel 46:12 ( bis ) has rendered נדבה , nedhābhāh , by "voluntary offering" instead of the usual "freewill offering" (so the Revised Version (British and American)). The words "of his own voluntary will" in Leviticus 1:3 the King James Version are a pure gloss, properly omitted in the Revised Version (British and American), as they represent nothing in the Hebrew text. 1 Macc 2:42 has "voluntarily" as part of the translation of ἑκουσιάζω , hekousiázō , the Revised Version (British and American) "willingly."
