Speaking of the versions of the Bible, I have a copy of the Hexapla.
This is a side by side of six different versions of the New Testament
including KJV, Geneva, Wycliffe and three others. I have found it very
interesting and thought provoking to read the different interpretations.
Not sure if these books are easily available.
