Verse 15. And the quality of the falsity by which such are deluded, is that it delights in lying, externally, and in the destruction of the heavenly marriage internally, its central principle being the very essential of all falsity.
To many Protestant and Evangelical Italians, the Bibles translated by Giovanni Diodati are an important part of their history. Diodati’s first Italian Bible edition was printed in 1607, and his second in 1641. He died in 1649. Throughout the 1800s two editions of Diodati’s text were printed by the British Foreign Bible Society. This is the more recent 1894 edition, translated by Claudiana.
