    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 number of early-American political documents, including a prayer by George Washington, that evidence America’s Christian heritage. These documents are a direct consequence of the fact that colonial Americans were also “people of the Book.”

    “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 have 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 duities of this day, in which I beseech thee to defend me from all perils of body and soul…” -Prayer by George Washington

    This edition also includes the following historical documents, which are based on Biblical principles: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