This rendering of the "Tablet of the Branch" (available originally in Bahá'í World Faith) has been referred to as "rather poorly translated" in a letter on behalf of Shoghi Effendi in Light of Divine Guidance, vol. I, p. 65.

An authoritative translation was added as an overlay to the text below in red, allowing hovering of the mouse over the red text (using a modern browser), to show a tooltip with the more up-to-date and authoritative translation made by Shoghi Effendi for that passage as published in the World Order of Bahá'u'lláh.

However, there is now a complete, still newer, authorized translation of this Tablet, published in 'Days of Remembrance' (2017).
