ANSWER: Yes. The scholarship of the English speaking world will demand it. Americans will adopt that form of the Revision which contains their preferences in translation, in marginal readings, in references, in topics at the top of the pages, and in Americanizing weights, measures and coins. It is an improvement to say "Holy Spirit" instead of "Holy Ghost," since "ghost" has been degraded in meaning in the last two centuries. The American Revisors have, instead of the generic term Lord, restored the personal name Jehovah, which "he set in Israel."
