43 Finally, in a lawsuit against Christopher Barker, Roger Norton refers to ‘the moiety of a manuscript of a Bible in English called the Bible of K. 44 Perhaps the partial or half manuscript (‘the moiety of a manuscript’) is not the same manuscript as that referred to in the other references: not impossibly, it could refer to Bod 1602, or to another Bishops’ Bible supplying the annotations for the remaining parts of the Bible. ’45 This may be right, but we are entitled to wonder whether these commonwealth testimonies point to a definitive final manuscript.
A Geneva annotation explains the sense this way: ‘I haue still laboured by my prophets, and as it were, framed you to bring you to amendement, but all was in vaine: for my word was not meate to feede them, but a sworde to slaye them’. God’s word, which should have led to reform of life, has been ignored, so, rather than saving, it condemns. Figuratively, what should have been food has become a sword. The first KJB’s ‘shewed’ seems to respond to this note, removing the figurative sense and rephrasing the note’s ‘laboured by my prophets’ with ‘shewed them by the prophets’.
This part of Bod 1602, then, is not an individual’s but a company copy, and the job of recording changes was shared around. One could understand an individual’s copy having annotations in some parts but not others as the result of some sort of absence from work, but to see a company copy partially annotated in this way is very odd: why is the rest of the company’s work missing? Perhaps it is because the work was subdivided, 31 Jacobs, ‘King James’s Translators’, and Allen and Jacobs, pp. 3–30. Making the text but this hardly accounts for the presence of annotations on the last chapters of John.
