The Geneva - Thomson text of the New Testament, revised by Thomson from the translation by Whittingham, Gilby, Sampson and others. First printed in 1576, Thomson's revision eventually became the final and most popular version of the Geneva text. The edition of the Psalms by Sternhold and Hopkins was first published in its complete form in 1562, and was frequently reprinted, often to be bound to accompany other editions of the Bible.
