1 John 5:7,8 (ESV, NIV):
- For there are three that testify:
- the Spirit and the water and the blood; and these three agree.
For there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.
1 John 5:7,8 (DRB):
7And there are Three who give testimony in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost. And these three are one. 8And there are three that give testimony on earth: the spirit and the water and the blood. And these three are one.
It is clear that verse 7 in DRB isn't found in ESV, NIV, but why the word "earth" is not also found in these both versions (ESV, NIV)?
I mean, if verse 7 is spurious or gloss then why verse 8 is not identical, i.e: verse 8 DRB should be identical to verses 7,8 ESV, NIV.
This means that spuriousness in DRB and Latin Vulgate take place in both verses 7,8 DRB, but there are many evidences testify to Latin Vulgate and DRB that both of them are good versions of the Bible, having good reputation.
