    Help! Help! My 6th graders are studying about the history of the Bible.

    Will someone please post John 3:16 in it's early English forms......as I cannot find it and I am in the middle of teaching and cannot stop to cruise the net.

    Thanks

    Scarlett O. and her 6th graders

    Others:

    "For God so loued the worlde, that he gaue his onely sonne, that who so euer beleueth in hi, shulde not perishe, but haue euerlastinge life." (MCB - 1535)

    "For God so loued the worlde, that hee hath giuen his onely begotten Sonne, that whosoeuer beleeueth in him, should not perish, but haue euerlasting life." (GEN- 1587)

    "For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son: that whosoever believeth in him may not perish, but may have life everlasting." [RHE - 1582 (or D-R - 1610)]

    "For God ʃo loued ye world, that he gaue his only begotten ʃonne: that whoʃoeuer beleeueth in him, ʃhould not periʃh, but haue euerlaʃting life." (KJ-1611)

    Note that all these (except the KJ-1611, which I edited, as much as was possible on short notice) still have updated letter forms including the absence of the "long 's'" and the D-R is also that of updated spelling, even as I copied them, here.
