Here is an invaluable reference Bible for access to vast amounts of collateral historical information. It was put together by E. W. Bullinger in the late 1800's. It contains the text of the King James Bible with a right hand column packed full of tidbits of information seldom found anywhere else. It also has 198 appendixes that are full of "must read" information. The parallel column in the Old Testament contain notes taken from the Massorah (compiled by Ginsburg, but written during the time of Ezra and Nehemiah) that are pertinent to the understanding of the Scripture. At this time the Companion Bible is the only source for the English reader of the Massoretic text. This work will help you to discover what, "Thus saith the Lord" and why.
