Three things I know are not in the Bible

1. God helps those who help themselves--sounds proverbial, but God never inspired Solomon to write that one in any language, privately or publically

2. The United States of America—I know this one will surprise some, but a lot of countries have put an eagle in their national symbol.

3. King James—while both “king” and “James” are in there, the two together as a proper name do not. While a great translation, we need to remember that the Word of God doesn’t need a human being’s authorization

Any other examples of things assumed to be in the Bible?
