Part of a page from a 1581 copy of the Geneva Bible. This extract is from the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 2, and tells of the birth of Jesus, called Christ, and of angels announcing this to shepherds. Note in particular verse 14, Glory be to God in the high [heavens], and peace in earth, and towards men good will; a more modern translation would be peace towards men of good will, but the error here persisted through the King James Bible of 1611 and is still widely quoted. The text starts:

10 Then ye Angel sayde vnto them, Be not afraide: for beholde, I bring you tidings of great ioy, that shalbe to all the people:

11 That is, that vnto you is borne this day in the citie of (f) Dauid, a Sauiour, which is Christ the Lord.
