VERSE NUMBERING CHANGED in AFV compared to the KJV:
John 1:38 (KJV) has been split into two verses, following the numbering of Stephens Greek text, thus John 1:38-51 (KJV) is now John 1:38-52 (AFV). 1 John 5:6-8 (AFV) follows verse numbering of the Revised Version (1881, 1885), and Revised Standard Version (1946, 1952, 1971) whereas more recent Bible versions have changed to follow King James Verse numbering, while omitting the gloss which had been added in the KJV from margins of late manuscripts of the Latin Vulgate, since the added phrases do not appear in the majority of the Greek manuscripts. 3 John 1:14 (KJV) is now 3 John 1:14, 15 (AFV), following Greek numbering in Stephens Greek text. 2 Corinthians 13:12 (KJV) is combined with 2 Corinthians 13:13 (KJV), thus verse 2 Corinthians 13:14 (KJV) is renumbered as 2 Corinthians 13:13 (AFV), following Stephens Greek verse numbering. You will notice similar verse number changes in many other recently published Bibles. e-Sword caters for these verse changes, which you see if using the "Parallel" option, and loading AFV in the first column, and the other Bible in a subsequent parallel column. None of the Books of the Apocrypha are included in AFV. For the content of those books, see "King James Version w/ Apocrypha", added to e-Sword since 2019/08/08.
