THE
THE Commission of Bishops and Presbyters appointed by the General Conven-

tion of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America to draw up Marginal Readings for the English Version of the Bible, and empowered by the General Convention of 1901 to print a Bible or Bibles containing the same, hereby certify that this edition of the Bible contains the Marginal Readings adopted by the General Convention, and allowed to be used in churches at the discretion of the minister in reading the Lessons from Holy Scripture in Morning and Evening Prayer;

Also that in the Appendix are contained certain other alternative renderings preferred by the Commission, and printed here by the authority of the General Convention, though not authorized for reading in the public services of the Church.

The renderings found in the margin are alternatives to the words or sentences marked by the same number and underlined in the text.

Renderings which are based on a difference of reading in the original Hebrew, Greek, or Latin texts are distinguished by a corresponding Or, at the foot of the page.

Certain explanations of names, and of the more literal rendering from the original of certain words or phrases, similar to those found in the margin of the version of 1611, are placed at the foot of the page.
