1 JOHN 5:7-8 [A Trinitarian addition] (A trinitarian addition to Scripture)

   
Aleppo Codex (Fragment of Deuteronomy)
Johanan Aleph (1 John 5:7-8) (The Scriptures, ISR) 
7 Because there are three who bear witness: 
8 the Spirit, and the water, and the blood. And the three are in agreement. 
There was a trinitarian addition to these verses commonly called ‘The Comma Johanneum’.
The Scriptures Explanatory Notes states:
The Comma Johanneum refers to a short clause in 1 John 5:7-8 in the Latin Vulgate text which was transmitted since the Early Middle Ages. It was later included in the Textus Receptus Greek in support of trinity doctrine. The ‘comma’ does not appear in the older Greek text. The ‘comma’ is displayed below in italics.
7 Because there are three who bear witness (in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit: and these are one.
8 And there are three that bear witness in the earth) the Spirit, and the water, and the blood. And the three are in agreement.
(The Scriptures Explanatory Notes)
 While most modern translations do not include this clause, some include it in parenthesis, which indicates that it is not in the original manuscripts.
 
Unless stated otherwise, Scripture is taken from The Scriptures
