This 'extra' verse (number) is standard in Dutch (checked 3
translations) and almost standard in German (did also check three --> 2
out of 3). As far as I know they are al based on Luther's versification
scheme (for the new testament quite similar to KJV) roughly 10 deviations.

On a seperate note I can make a diff of versification changes between
KJV and Dutch Staten vertaling 1637. (versification basis of all dutch
translations till NBV 2007?

Kind Regards,
