Printed copies of the scriptures in Finnish are now available through local distribution centers.

“As members prayerfully learn and teach from the scriptures, their testimonies will grow and they will receive greater direction in their daily lives.” —The First Presidency

The printed version of the updated edition of the triple combination of the scriptures in Finnish is now available through local distribution centers.

The triple combination contains the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, the Pearl of Great Price, a helpful study aid titled Guide to the Scriptures, and other study aids.

Electronic versions of the updated Finnish scriptures are available online at ChurchofJesusChrist.org and in the Gospel Library mobile app.

Updated triple

The updated triple combination in Finnish, which is mainly spoken in Finland and also in Sweden, incorporates various adjustments approved by the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve. Most of the adjustments are in the study helps, in the headings of the Doctrine and Covenants, or some minor spelling and meaning corrections in the text. Scripture verses in the new edition have the same page numbers as the previous edition.

“Members are not expected to obtain a new set of scriptures as a result of this updated edition,” the First Presidency stated.

“We encourage members to obtain their own copies of the scriptures and to use them in regular personal and family study and in Church meetings and assignments,” the First Presidency stated. “As members prayerfully learn and teach from the scriptures, their testimonies will grow and they will receive greater direction in their daily lives.”
