    I have two bibles: the New American Bible and the New Jerusalem Bible.

    In the New American Bible John 5:4 is deleted from the body of the text and addressed in a footnote:

    * [5:4] Toward the end of the second century in the West and among the fourth-century Greek Fathers, an additional verse was known: “For [from time to time] an angel of the Lord used to come down into the pool; and the water was stirred up, so the first one to get in [after the stirring of the water] was healed of whatever disease afflicted him.” The angel was a popular explanation of the turbulence and the healing powers attributed to it. This verse is missing from all early Greek manuscripts and the earliest versions, including the original Vulgate. Its vocabulary is markedly non-Johannine.


    In theNew Jerusalem Bible John 5:4 is included in the body of the text:
    4 for at intervals the angel of the Lord came down into the pool, and the water was disturbed, and the first person to enter the water after this disturbance was cured of any ailment he suffered from.

    I don't have a recent one, my Russian bible predates the Russian Revolution and it's in Russian. I have enough Bible Thumpers here spouting the bible, that's enough.

    Nope, my grandmother's and although she spoke Russian and 8 other languages as well., the Czar's court spoke French. As her Uncle was Head Chamberlain to five Czars, she spent time there.

    Why have a bible if you don't follow the principles set forth in it?

    Three things on my nightstand. The Holy Bible, a lamp and the latest issue of WBM. What more does a fella need?

    I've still got my old KJV which I had at school. I won it as a prize in 1960 for RI (Religious Instruction). I also have a 19th century Quran which I bought from a used bookshop in Devon back in 1970.

    I have an enormous family bible type thing from my late husband's family. It should go back, but nobody seems to want it. I have never opened it and have no intention of doing so now. It's much to heavy......

    I do love the Book of Common Prayer, though. Memorable....

    Births, deaths and marriages were often recorded in family bibles.

    Have a look.

    Hmmm. We have a lot of books, but I don't think we have any version of that one. I usually just look stuff up online if I need to check a reference.

    What are you doing about it?

    Well, if you must reference Mickey Mouse versions of the bible

    It's in the KJV and lots of other English translations..

    RSV given to me as a child, and Skeptics Annotated Bible I purchased for myself. Most often refer to the Skeptics version - much more informative.

    I can honestly say that I don't remember ever reading or hearing that passage.

    If I read it, I must have skipped over it as being largely irrelevant to the bigger lessons.

    Be careful opening it, support the page block as you open it on a table with two cushions. Most of that info is usually found right at the front or between the old and new testaments. Open the pages a few at a time. Bad handling of old heavy bibles can break them in half.
    I mad quite a little income at one stage fixing them. It's not easy because they are so heavy. They were really meant to be used on an angled lectern.

    I have 3, all KJ, one from the last century, and two that came over in the 1700s.

    The old ones have very large type, its becoming helpful.
