      The Revised English Bible reads "Caphtorites, from whom the Philistines were descended."
       
      The Jerusalem Bible reads: "Cusluh and Caphtor, from which the Philistines came."
       
      The NRSV reads, "Casluhim, and Caphtorim, from which the Philistines come."
       
      The NRSV has a footnote on the variant: "Cn: " and then gives the reading of the Hebrew, "Casluhim, from which the Philistines some, and Caphtorim"
       
      Cn stands for, "Correction; made where the text has suffered in transmission and the versions provide no satisfactory restoration but where the Standard Bible Committee agrees with the judgment of competent scholars as to the most probable reconstruction of the original text."
