Notes from the Edge of my Bible

Last update: Jan 2004

These are just notes I have jotted in along the margins in my bibles over the years. Not complete, not profundities, and not intended to be 'commentary' per se. I just thought some of these might be of interest to the readership. They are just 'oddities' and oblique observations (some questions, actually). The underlinings are much more important, but I cannot show those here obviously..."Location" is given in the form "Chapter:Verse". The "Bible" column is just for my reference.

I will be adding these book by book as I can, slow but sure. Also, these are 'read-only' (smile). I don't plan to make additions/changes/spelling corrections to these, nor do I have time to discuss them, or to 'argue with' anyone about them (knowing smile)...["But thanks for correcting me anyway..."; (chuckle)
