    To review a few of my examples:

    In 12:15 the KJV has :"Whatsoever thy soul lusteth after." L1560 pointed out that the Geneva has "heart desireth." That's a whole lot more acceptable.

    In 22:30 the KJV renders it:"discover" the Geneva has "uncover" which is much more understandable as L1560 noted.

    In 32:23 the KJV has "I will heap mischiefs upon them." The Geneva Bible has :"I will send plagues among them." The later is much more plain.
