Who makes this claim?
Ahh, thanks Jeffrey.
Elliot & Moir wrote a bit ambiguously and I was slow on the pickup. I do not look at "most modern editions" and my Bible editions use the normal verse structure. In the context of the discussion I thought Elliot & Moir were supporting the idea that it was a creedal hymn, but rather they were sort of backwards alluding to the lack of historical textual-hymnal evidence for the theory. Since that textual theory was originated by Griesbach, as far as I can determine.
