In Mosiah 21:28, the 1830 version of the Book of Mormon lists the king as Benjamin, as it was handwritten in the Printer’s Manuscript.

During this timeline in the text, king Benjamin had been dead for three years.

In the 1837 edition, Joseph Smith personally changed it to read king Mosiah, and it has remained this way since.

In 1849, the same alteration was made to Ether 4:1.
