17 / old 29 forward you witnesses - "God's new order" replaced with "the paradise". Justice/truth being pushed asided replaced with the kingdom hope being mocked.
THIS ONE IS FUNNY! Song 18/ old one 114 - with what they've changed, they would of been better keeping this verse in, because now they are denying they were sent by God. But anyway, this verse is ERASED not replaced, but just gone. "Us he gave the faithful slave, him a grand commission gave, that Jehovah's name he bear, in it's vindication share." I think removing it caused more harm then keeping, again after all the faithful slave insertations, strange they cut this one out. The other difference is that old one one of the versus said "May we preach from door to door", has been replaced with, "May be preach with godly fear".
19/ old 4 - removal of entire verse talking about billions being resurrected and what a time of fine instruction it will be
20 / old 28 - "Bless our meeting together" cut out verse talking about keeping us humble and meek. Added "may our words and may our actions Magnify your Sovreignty"
23 / old 47 - Removed "Thru Christ, your son, we now seek joy and peace; once blinded eyes behold truth er increase. Searching the scriptures we hear your command; making our choice with Jehovah we stand" has been replaced with "We who now serve you rejoice in your light; with opened eyes we now see truth and right. Searching the scriptures we hear your command, making our choice for your Kingdom we stand" - So it went from Through Jesus seeking peace and making stand with Jehovah now is saying we are rejoicing in the light (what would that be huh? lol) we have opened eyes and must take a stand for the kingdom (again what would that be?) .
25 - BIG CHANGES old 200 - "Proof of Discipleship" - I don't know why they didn't just remove it all. The old one went into detail about love to all and to our brother and love to the erring, etc. That love has eyes to see the good, to build up, to seek someones better side, not selfish, etc. The NEW ONE, removes every detail and says there is a law that we must love, and it must be genuine and no other place on earth has this love. That's pretty much the whole song. I guess they don't know what love is or it's dangerous to know?
