The beautiful rhythm of Isaiah 40 in English in the King James Version, which is true to the Hebrew, is from the Geneva Bible. Consider, for instance, Isaiah 40:4 in the KJV, which is taken directly from the Geneva Bible: "Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain." Other examples of "literal and lyrical" original Old Testament renderings of the Geneva translators used by the KJV are: "Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth" (Eccl. 12:1) and "Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, all is vanity" (Eccl. 12:8).
