... pick up the Geneva 1560 and look for the full inspiration of God at John 8:6 Luke 17:36 1 John 2:23b (there are more, but these three are well known. In the Tyndale edition of the scriptures, there are many more difficulties.)
.... as though he heard them not.
Two men shall be in the field;
the one shall be taken,
and the other left.
1 John 2:23
... (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
Luke 17:36 [this verse in the KJV is not in the 1560 Geneva Bible and some other pre-1611
The 1560 Geneva Bible has a verse 36 but it is what is verse 37 in the KJV. [see 1611 marginal
note] (see also Backus, p. 88)
John 8:6 "as though he heard them not" [these words in KJV are not in 1560 Geneva Bible and
some other pre-1611 English Bibles]
1 John 2:23b
[but] he that acknowledged the Son hath the Father also [1611 KJV]
[this second half of this verse in KJV is not in 1560 Geneva Bible and some other pre-1611
English Bibles because not found in early TR editions]
In terms of the text, the two editions, putting aside the 1557 Whittingham, are the 1560 and the 1576 Laurence Tomson (1539-1608) revision. They split the Geneva publishing after 1576.
The 1560 is missing a few verses (perhaps later Beza TR improvements), the 1576 has a stilted “that” grammer, Latin style, with an underlying text exceedingly close to the AV.
