For Your Consideration :

* Be advised that the Book of Psalms has superscriptions under some of the Psalms. These annotations were not counted in the above charts being as they are not in the verses themselves. Also, Psalm 119 contains the characters of the Hebrew Alphabet translated into our English language. Even though these words are not in the verses themselves, they were counted because they are scattered throughout this particular Psalm.

* In similar fashion, the fourteen Epistles of the Apostle Paul are also sometimes accompanied by subscriptions at the end of some of his letters. These annotations were not counted in the above charts being as they are not in the verses themselves. They are credited to one Euthalius, who was a Fifth Century bishop. The wording has slightly been modified during the process of time. Some of them seem to disagree with the text.
