New Testament place names of the third Halle Bible (1766) modified the Czech tradition of the Kralice Bible editions especially in two respects: First, in greater absorbing of the Luther Bible influence (Golgata (?), Kenchreis, Laodycea, Kedron, Getsemane, Nykopolis), and second, in introducing declension (do Assonu, do Pergy, do Derby, do Syrakus). The modification, resulting from the mutual interplay of moderate inclination towards introducing declension, towards unity of place name forms in all of its occurrences, Luther's influence and continuity of tradition, was far from thoroughness, as proved e.g. by variability in adapting the underlying Greek place names ending in '-h' as well as plural-form place names. Nonetheless, the Halle Bible of 1766 means an important landmark in the biblical place names tradition subsequent to the Kralice Bible editions.
