NOTES on this Page:|
- Although Coverdale included most of Tyndale's translation
in his Bible, he chose not to use Tyndale's marginal notes, some of which were highly critical of the
Catholic Church. That's why the margins only contain cross references to other Scripture.
Although the text is divided into paragraphs, it would be 20 more years before verse divisions were
created. Instead, each chapter was divided into 5 or 6 lettered sections. You can see these divisions in the
margin along with the cross references — "B" and
"C" in the left margin, with the chapter finishing up with
Section "D" in the right margin. (The typeface makes them
a little hard to read.) These chapter divisions were called "lecterns." Using this scheme, this
page contains Jeremiah 30:a through Jeremiah 31:a.
