Note that this is a Geneva Bible, and that verse numbers may not always correspond with the more familiar King James version, though they will usually be close.

**Arg**: Argument (at the beginning of each book)**CH**: Chapter heading (at the beginning of each chapter)**N**: The verse number is underlined in ink.**U**: Part or all of the verse itself is underlined in ink. If only one word is underlined, this word is given in parentheses.**N/U**: Both the verse number and the verse itself are underlined in ink.**A**: Annotation. The text of the annotation is given in quotes. Portions in angle brackets are parts of words which have been cut away by a binder's knife, and reconstructed as accurately as possible. Where it is not clear what has been cut away, an ellipsis (...) is used.**F**: A flower is drawn in the margin.**M**: Part or all of a marginal note is underlined. If there is more than one marginal note for a verse and only one is underlined, the letter of the marked note is given in parentheses.**H**: A pointing hand is drawn in the margin.**X**: An X is drawn in the margin.**+**: A cross is drawn in pencil at the beginning of the chapter.
