The Pilgrims brought the 1599 Geneva Bible with them when they arrived in the New World in 1620. All but forgotten in our day, this version of the Bible was the most widely read and influential English Bible of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. A superb translation, the 1599 Geneva Bible was the product of the best Protestant scholars of the day and became the Bible of choice for many of the greatest writers and thinkers of that time, such as William Shakespeare, John Bunyan, and John Milton. The Geneva Bible is unique among all other Bibles. It was the first Bible to use chapters and numbered verses and became the most popular version of its time because of the extensive marginal notes. These more than 300,000 notes were included to explain and interpret the scriptures for the common people.
The Patriot's Edition of the 1599 Geneva Bible is the same Scripture, word for word, that the Pilgrims brought to America nearly 400 years ago. This new edition, however, features the following historical documents, which are based upon Biblical principles: The Magna Carta, Mayflower Compact, Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, Constitution of the United States, Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, and Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior. Additionally, this edition features word-for-word accuracy with the 1599 Geneva Bible, original cross references, modern spelling, original study notes by the reformers, and an old English glossary.
