Product Description

When the Pilgrims arrived in America in 1620, they brought along supplies, a consuming passion to advance the Kingdom of Christ, a bright hope for the future, and the Word of God. Clearly, their most precious cargo was the Bible. Have you ever wondered what version of the Bible the Pilgrims brought to America on the Mayflower? Believe it or not, it was NOT the King James Version of 1611. It was actually the 1599 Geneva Bible, a forgotten but priceless treasure.

The Geneva Bible, printed over 200 times between 1560 and 1644, was the most widely read and influential English Bible of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This superb translation was the product of the best Protestant scholars of the day and became the Bible of choice for many of the greatest writers, thinkers, and historical figures of that time. Men such as Shakespeare, John Bunyan, and John Milton used the Geneva Bible, and it was reflected in their writings. During the English Civil War, Oliver Cromwell issued a pamphlet containing excerpts from the Geneva Bible to his troops. William Bradford cited the Geneva Bible in his book Of Plymouth Plantation.

The Geneva Bible is unique among all other Bibles. It was the first Bible to use chapters and numbered verses and became the most popular version of its time because of the extensive marginal notes. These notes, written by Reformation leaders such as John Calvin, John Knox, Miles Coverdale, William Whittingham, Anthony Gilby, and others, were included to explain and interpret the scriptures for the common people.

For nearly half a century these notes helped the people of England, Scotland, and Ireland understand the Bible and true liberty. King James despised the Geneva Bible because he considered the notes on key political texts to be seditious and a threat to his authority. Unlike the King James Version, the Geneva Bible was not authorized by the government. It was truly a Bible by the people and for the people. You can see why this remarkable version with its profound marginal notes played a key role in the formation of the American Republic.

The Patriot's Edition of the 1599 Geneva Bible is the same Scripture, word for word, that the Pilgrims brought to America nearly 400 years ago. This new edition, however, features a prayer by George Washington, which begins...
"O eternal and everlasting God, i presume to present myself this morning before thy divine majesty, beseeching thee to accept of my humble and hearty thanks, that it hath pleased thy great goodness to keep and preserve me the night past from all the dangers poor mortals are subject to, and has given me sweet and pleasant sleep, whereby i find my body refreshed and comforted for performing the duties of this day, in which i beseech thee to defend me from all perils of body and soul..."

This edition also includes the following historical documents, which are based upon Biblical principles:

  • The Magna Carta
  • The Mayflower Compact
  • The Declaration of Independence
  • The Articles of Confederation
  • The Constitution of the United States
  • Amendments to the U.S. Constitution
  • Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior



   "The publication and promulgation of the 1599 Geneva Bible will help restore America's rich Christian heritage and reclaim the culture for Christ."- Dr. D. James Kennedy, Senior Pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church

    Unknown (Submitted on 26th Jan 2015)

    This Bible was a present for my son. I did not know
    the Patriot Bible existed until my son sent me an email
    with a link saying he intended to purchase it. He was
    specifically interested in the prayers of George
    Washington while he was fighting the war.
    He loves this Bible

  5. Truth in God's word

    Unknown (Submitted on 22nd Jan 2015)

    Everyone should read the "1599 Geneva Bible", It has the best notes and the Constitution, Maga Carta and much more that information that has been surpressed from the people. King James changed a lot from his bible and if you do not believe me read the preface of your king james bible. The 1599 Geneva Bible was the Bible our founding Fathers brought with them from there country to start a new nation where the could read this Bible and be free to worship Almighty God. This Bible is where our Constitution came from by the Founding Father's of this nation. You will be very glad you read from this Bible. The Truth will set you free.

  6. Outstanding Bible!
