NOTES on this Page:|
As you can see, there are no verse divisions in the text; they hadn't been developed yet. Instead, chapters
were divided into 5 or 6 lettered sections called "lecterns" -- each chapter starting with "A". The 14th Chapter
is divided into four lecterns -- "A" through "D". You can see these letters in the
left margin. Under this notation, this page contains I Chronicles 14:a through
I Chronicles 15:d.
Even though there were no verse numbers, cross references to other Scripture were included in the margins.
Notice the last notation at the bottom of the right margin: ii.Reg.vi.c, which references
II Kings 6:c.
If you are struggling to read the text -- join the group. The Old English typeface was certainly not
chosen for ease of reading.
