Why are there so many different versions of the Bible?

The Bible says in several places not to add to his words (Deut 4:2, Deut 12:32.  The 1599 Geneva Bible I believe is the first English translation of the scriptures. Why then do we not follow that Bible?

I know there are many different Bibles. So how do we know which is the correct one to use? Thank you.
