For many years it was common not to give the translation any specific name.
Referred to it as "the English Translation made in the beginning of the Reign of King James". A 1761 "Brief Account of the various Translations of the Bible into English" refers to the 1611 version merely as "a new, compleat, and more accurate Translation", despite referring to the Great Bible by its name, and despite using the name "Rhemish Testament" for the.
Similarly, a "History of England", whose fifth edition was published in 1775, writes merely that [a] new translation of the Bible. That now in Use, was begun in 1607, and published in 1611.
King James's Bible is used as the name for the 1611 translation (on a par with the Genevan Bible or the Rhemish Testament) in. Other works from the early 19th century confirm the widespread use of this name on both sides of the Atlantic: it is found both in a "Historical sketch of the English translations of the Bible" published in Massachusetts in 1815. And in an English publication from 1818, which explicitly states that the 1611 version is "generally known by the name of King James's Bible".
This name was also found as King James' Bible (without the final "s"): for example in a book review from 1811. "King James's Bible" is used as far back as 1715, although in this case it is not clear whether this is a name or merely a description.The use of Authorized Version, capitalized and used as a name, is found as early as 1814. For some time before this, descriptive phrases such as "our present, and only publicly authorised version" (1783). And "the authorized version" (1801, uncapitalized). A more common appellation in the 17th and 18th centuries was "our English translation" or "our English version", as can be seen by searching one or other of the major online archives of printed books. In Britain, the 1611 translation is generally known as the "Authorized Version" today. The term is somewhat of a misnomer because the text itself was never formally "authorized", nor were English parish churches ever ordered to procure copies of it. King James' Version, evidently a descriptive phrase, is found being used as early as 1814. "The King James Version" is found, unequivocally used as a name, in a letter from 1855. The next year King James Bible, with no possessive, appears as a name in a Scottish source. In the United States, the "1611 translation" (actually editions following the standard text of 1769, see below) is generally known as the King James Version today. English translations of the Bible.

The Wycliffe Bible pre-dated the printing press but it was circulated very widely in manuscript form, often inscribed with a date which was earlier than 1409 in order to avoid the legal ban. Because the text of the various versions of the Wycliffe Bible was translated from the Latin. And because it also contained no heterodox readings, the ecclesiastical authorities had no practical way to distinguish the banned version; consequently, many Catholic commentators of the 15th and 16th centuries such as.Took these manuscripts of English Bibles and claimed that they represented an anonymous earlier orthodox translation. Translated the New Testament into English in 1525. Tyndale's translation was the first. Over the next ten years, Tyndale revised his New Testament in the light of rapidly advancing biblical scholarship, and embarked on a translation of the Old Testament. Despite some controversial translation choices, and in spite of Tyndale's execution on charges of heresy for having made the translated Bible, the merits of Tyndale's work and prose style made his translation the ultimate basis for all subsequent renditions into Early Modern English.
With these translations lightly edited and adapted by. In 1539, Tyndale's New Testament and his incomplete work on the Old Testament became the basis for the. This was the first "authorised version" issued by the. During the reign of King.
Some establishing an English-speaking colony at. Geneva became the chief international centre of. Undertook a translation that became known as the Geneva Bible.
This translation, dated to 1560, was a revision of Tyndale's Bible and the Great Bible on the basis of the original languages. Took the throne in 1558, the flaws of both the Great Bible and the Geneva Bible (namely, that the Geneva Bible did not "conform to the ecclesiology and reflect the episcopal structure of the Church of England and its beliefs about an ordained clergy") became painfully apparent.In 1568, the Church of England responded with the. A revision of the Great Bible in the light of the Geneva version. While officially approved, this new version failed to displace the Geneva translation as the most popular English Bible of the age-in part because the full Bible was only printed in. Editions of prodigious size and at a cost of several pounds. Accordingly, Elizabethan lay people overwhelmingly read the Bible in the Geneva Version-small editions were available at a relatively low cost. At the same time, there was a substantial clandestine importation of the rival. New Testament of 1582, undertaken by exiled Roman Catholics. This translation, though still derived from Tyndale, claimed to represent the text of the Latin Vulgate.

Two years later, he ascended to the throne of England as James I. The newly crowned King James convened the.

30 (also from the Great Bible),'Then stood up Phinees and prayed,' the. Instructions were given to the translators that were intended to limit the Puritan influence on this new translation. Added a qualification that the translators would add no marginal notes which had been an issue in the. King James cited two passages in the Geneva translation where he found the marginal notes offensive to the principles of.Exodus 1:19, where the. Notes had commended the example of civil disobedience to the Egyptian. Showed by the Hebrew midwives, and also II Chronicles 15:16, where the.
Had criticized King Asa for not having executed his idolatrous'mother', Queen Maachah Maachah had actually been Asa's grandmother, but James considered the Geneva Bible reference as sanctioning the execution of his own mother. Further, the King gave the translators instructions designed to guarantee that the new version would conform to the. Certain Greek and Hebrew words were to be translated in a manner that reflected the traditional usage of the church. For example, old ecclesiastical words such as the word "church" were to be retained and not to be translated as "congregation".
The new translation would reflect the. Structure of the Church of England and traditional beliefs about. James' instructions included several requirements that kept the new translation familiar to its listeners and readers. Would serve as the primary guide for the translators, and the familiar proper names of the biblical characters would all be retained.
Was deemed problematic in any situation, the translators were permitted to consult other translations from a pre-approved list: the. In addition, later scholars have detected an influence on the. And the New Testament of the. It is for this reason that the flyleaf of most printings of the. Observes that the text had been translated out of the original tongues, and with the former translations diligently compared and revised, by His Majesty's special commandment.As the work proceeded, more detailed rules were adopted as to how variant and uncertain readings in the Hebrew and Greek source texts should be indicated, including the requirement that words supplied in English to'complete the meaning' of the originals should be printed in a different type face. The task of translation was undertaken by 47 scholars, although 54 were originally approved. All were members of the Church of England and all except. The scholars worked in six committees, two based in each of the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge, and. The committees included scholars with Puritan sympathies, as well as. Forty unbound copies of the 1602 edition of the. Were specially printed so that the agreed changes of each committee could be recorded in the margins. The committees worked on certain parts separately and the drafts produced by each committee were then compared and revised for harmony with each other. The scholars were not paid directly for their translation work, instead a circular letter was sent to bishops encouraging them to consider the translators for appointment to well-paid. Several were supported by the various colleges at Oxford and Cambridge, while others were promoted to. The committees started work towards the end of 1604. On 22 July 1604, sent a letter to. Asking him to contact all English churchmen requesting that they make donations to his project.
Right trusty and well beloved, we greet you well. Whereas we have appointed certain learned men, to the number of 4 and 50, for the translating of the Bible, and in this number, divers of them have either no ecclesiastical preferment at all, or else so very small, as the same is far unmeet for men of their deserts and yet we in ourself in any convenient time cannot well remedy it, therefor we do hereby require you, that presently you write in our name as well to the Archbishop of York, as to the rest of the bishops of the province of Cant.

The King's Printer, in 1611 as a complete folio Bible. Robert Barker's father, Christopher, had, in 1589, been granted by Elizabeth I the title of royal Printer. With the perpetual Royal Privilege to print Bibles in England.Robert Barker invested very large sums in printing the new edition, and consequently ran into serious debt. Such that he was compelled to sub-lease the privilege to two rival London printers, Bonham Norton and John Bill. It appears that it was initially intended that each printer would print a portion of the text, share printed sheets with the others, and split the proceeds.
There followed decades of continual litigation, and consequent imprisonment for debt for members of the Barker and Norton printing dynasties. While each issued rival editions of the whole Bible.In 1629 the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge successfully managed to assert separate and prior royal licences for Bible printing, for their own university presses-and Cambridge University took the opportunity to print revised editions of the. The editors of these editions included John Bois and John Ward from the original translators.
This did not, however, impede the commercial rivalries of the London printers, especially as the Barker family refused to allow any other printers access to the authoritative manuscript of the. Two editions of the whole Bible are recognized as having been produced in 1611, which may be distinguished by their rendering of. The first edition reading "he went into the city", where the second reads "she went into the city". These are known colloquially as the "He" and "She" Bibles.
Of the 1611 edition of the. Marginal notes reference variant translations and cross references to other Bible passages. Each chapter is headed by a précis of contents.
There are decorative initial letters for each chapter, and a decorated headpiece to each book, but no illustrations in the text. The original printing was made before. Was standardized, and when printers, as a matter of course, expanded and contracted the spelling of the same words in different places, so as to achieve an even column of text.

Later printings regularized these spellings; the punctuation has also been standardized, but still varies from current usage norms. The first printing used a. Instead of a roman typeface, which itself made a political and a religious statement.The Authorized Version was "appointed to be read in churches". Volume meant for public use, not private devotion; the weight of the type mirrored the weight of establishment authority behind it. However, smaller editions and roman-type editions followed rapidly, e. Quarto roman-type editions of the Bible in 1612. This contrasted with the Geneva Bible, which was the first English Bible printed in a roman typeface (although black-letter editions, particularly in folio format, were issued later). Bishops' Bible, which had both been extensively illustrated, there were no illustrations at all in the 1611 edition of the Authorized Version, the main form of decoration being the.
Letters provided for books and chapters - together with the decorative title pages to the Bible itself, and to the New Testament. In the Great Bible, readings derived from the Vulgate but not found in published Hebrew and Greek texts had been distinguished by being printed in smaller. In the Geneva Bible, a distinct typeface had instead been applied to distinguish text supplied by translators, or thought needful for English. But not present in the Greek or Hebrew; and the original printing of the Authorized Version used.For this purpose, albeit sparsely and inconsistently. This results in perhaps the most significant difference between the original printed text of the King James Bible and the current text.
When, from the later 17th century onwards, the Authorized Version began to be printed in roman type, the typeface for supplied words was changed to. This application being regularized and greatly expanded. This was intended to de-emphasize the words. The original printing contained two prefatory texts; the first was a formal.
To "the most high and mighty Prince" King James. Many British printings reproduce this, while most non-British printings do not. The second preface was called. A long and learned essay that defends the undertaking of the new version.It observes the translators' stated goal, that they, never thought from the beginning that [they] should need to make a new translation, nor yet to make of a bad one a good one... But to make a good one better, or out of many good ones, one principal good one, not justly to be excepted against; that hath been our endeavour, that our mark. " They also give their opinion of previous English Bible translations, stating, "We do not deny, nay, we affirm and avow, that the very meanest translation of the Bible in English, set forth by men of our profession, (for we have seen none of theirs [Roman Catholics] of the whole Bible as yet) containeth the word of God, nay, is the word of God. As with the first preface, some British printings reproduce this, while most non-British printings do not. Almost every printing that includes the second preface also includes the first. The first printing contained a number of other. Including a table for the reading of the Psalms at.
And a table of holy days and observances. Much of this material became obsolete with the adoption of the. By Britain and its colonies in 1752, and thus modern editions invariably omit it.
So as to make it easier to know a particular passage, each chapter was headed by a brief precis of its contents with verse numbers. Later editors freely substituted their own chapter summaries, or omitted such material entirely. Marks are used to indicate the beginnings of paragraphs except after the book of Acts.
The Authorized Version was meant to replace the. As the official version for readings in the. No record of its authorization exists; it was probably effected by an order of the.But the records for the years 1600 to 1613 were destroyed by fire in January 1618/19. And it is commonly known as the Authorized Version in the United Kingdom. The King's Printer issued no further editions of the.
So necessarily the Authorized Version replaced it as the standard lectern Bible in parish church use in England. Book of Common Prayer, the text of the Authorized Version finally supplanted that of the.
In the Epistle and Gospel readings. Nevertheless continues in the Great Bible version. The case was different in Scotland, where the Geneva Bible had long been the standard church Bible. It was not until 1633 that a Scottish edition of the Authorized Version was printed-in conjunction with the Scots coronation in that year of. The inclusion of illustrations in the edition raised accusations of Popery from opponents of the religious policies of Charles and.
And the "New Translation" was the only edition on the market. Bruce reports that the last recorded instance of a Scots parish continuing to use the "Old Translation" i.Geneva as being in 1674. S acceptance by the general public took longer. Continued to be popular, and large numbers were imported from Amsterdam, where printing continued up to 1644 in editions carrying a false London imprint. However, few if any genuine Geneva editions appear to have been printed in London after 1616, and in 1637.
Prohibited their printing or importation. In the period of the. Were issued a book of Geneva selections called. In the first half of the 17th century the Authorized Version is most commonly referred to as "The Bible without notes", thereby distinguishing it from the Geneva "Bible with notes".
There were several printings of the Authorized Version in Amsterdam-one as late as 1715. Which combined the Authorized Version translation text with the Geneva marginal notes. One such edition was printed in London in 1649.
A commission was established by Parliament to recommend a revision of the Authorized Version with acceptably Protestant explanatory notes. But the project was abandoned when it became clear that these would nearly double the bulk of the Bible text. Was held to be politically suspect and a reminder of the repudiated. Furthermore, disputes over the lucrative rights to print the Authorized Version dragged on through the 17th century, so none of the printers involved saw any commercial advantage in marketing a rival translation.The Authorized Version became the only current version circulating among English-speaking people. A small minority of critical scholars were slow to accept the latest translation. Who was the most highly regarded English Hebraist of his time but had been excluded from the panel of translators because of his utterly uncongenial temperament.
Issued in 1611 a total condemnation of the new version. He especially criticized the translators' rejection of word-for-word equivalence and stated that "he would rather be torn in pieces by wild horses than that this abominable translation (KJV) should ever be foisted upon the English people".
Of 1657 disregards the Authorized Version (and indeed the English language) entirely. Walton's reference text throughout is the Vulgate. The Vulgate Latin is also found as the standard text of scripture in. Indeed Hobbes gives Vulgate chapter and verse numbers e.Job 41:24, not Job 41:33 for his head text. The Signification in Scripture of Kingdom of God. Hobbes discusses Exodus 19:5, first in his own translation of the. And then subsequently as found in the versions he terms. The English translation made in the beginning of the reign of King James, and.
Hobbes advances detailed critical arguments why the Vulgate rendering is to be preferred. For most of the 17th century the assumption remained that, while it had been of vital importance to provide the scriptures in the vernacular for ordinary people, nevertheless for those with sufficient education to do so, Biblical study was best undertaken within the international common medium of Latin.It was only in 1700 that modern bilingual Bibles appeared in which the Authorized Version was compared with counterpart Dutch and French Protestant vernacular Bibles. In consequence of the continual disputes over printing privileges, successive printings of the Authorized Version were notably less careful than the 1611 edition had been-compositors freely varying spelling, capitalization and punctuation. And also, over the years, introducing about 1,500 misprints some of which, like the omission of "not" from the commandment "Thou shalt not commit adultery" in the Wicked Bible. The two Cambridge editions of 1629 and 1638 attempted to restore the proper text-while introducing over 200 revisions of the original translators' work, chiefly by incorporating into the main text a more literal reading originally presented as a marginal note. A more thoroughly corrected edition was proposed following the.
In conjunction with the revised 1662 Book of Common Prayer, but Parliament then decided against it. By the first half of the 18th century, the Authorized Version was effectively unchallenged as the sole English translation in current use in Protestant churches. And was so dominant that the Roman Catholic Church in England issued in 1750 a revision of the 1610. That was very much closer to the Authorized Version than to the original. However, general standards of spelling, punctuation, typesetting, capitalization and grammar had changed radically in the 100 years since the first edition of the Authorized Version, and all printers in the market were introducing continual piecemeal changes to their Bible texts to bring them into line with current practice-and with public expectations of standardized spelling and grammatical construction.
Over the course of the 18th century, the Authorized Version supplanted the Hebrew, Greek and the Latin Vulgate as the standard version of scripture for English speaking scholars and divines, and indeed came to be regarded by some as an inspired text in itself-so much so that any challenge to its readings or textual base came to be regarded by many as an assault on Holy Scripture. And the Geneva Bible, the Authorized Version was translated primarily from Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic texts, although with secondary reference both to the Latin.
And to more recent scholarly Latin versions; two books of the Apocrypha were translated from a Latin source. Following the example of the Geneva Bible, words implied but not actually in the original source were distinguished by being printed in distinct type (albeit inconsistently), but otherwise the translators explicitly rejected word-for-word. Gives an example from Romans Chapter 5. 2 By whom also wee have accesse by faith, into this grace wherein wee stand, and.
In hope of the glory of God. 3 And not onely so, but we.In tribulations also, knowing that tribulation worketh patience. The English terms "rejoice" and "glory" are translated from the same word?
Metha in the Greek original. Bishops' Bibles, both instances are translated "rejoice".New Testament, both are translated "glory". Only in the Authorized Version does the translation vary between the two verses. In obedience to their instructions, the translators provided no marginal interpretation of the text, but in some 8,500 places a marginal note offers an alternative English wording. The majority of these notes offer a more literal rendering of the original (introduced as "Heb", "Chal", "Gr" or "Lat"), but others indicate a variant reading of the source text (introduced by "or"). Some of the annotated variants derive from alternative editions in the original languages, or from variant forms quoted in the. More commonly, though, they indicate a difference between the literal original language reading and that in the translators' preferred recent Latin versions.
At thirteen places in the New Testament. A marginal note records a variant reading found in some Greek manuscript copies; in almost all cases reproducing a counterpart textual note at the same place in Beza's editions.
A few more extensive notes clarify Biblical names and units of measurement or currency. Modern reprintings rarely reproduce these annotated variants-although they are to be found in the. In addition, there were originally some 9,000 scriptural cross-references, in which one text was related to another. Such cross-references had long been common in Latin Bibles, and most of those in the Authorized Version were copied unaltered from this Latin tradition.
Consequently the early editions of the KJV retain many Vulgate verse references-e. In the numbering of the. At the head of each chapter, the translators provided a short précis of its contents, with verse numbers; these are rarely included in complete form in modern editions.Also in obedience to their instructions, the translators indicated'supplied' words in a different typeface; but there was no attempt to regularize the instances where this practice had been applied across the different companies; and especially in the New Testament, it was used much less frequently in the 1611 edition than would later be the case. An entire clause was printed in roman type (as it had also been in the Great Bible and Bishop's Bible). Indicating a reading then primarily derived from the Vulgate, albeit one for which the later editions of Beza had provided a Greek text. In the Old Testament the translators render the. YHWH by "the LORD" in later editions in.
Or "the LORD God" for. Except in four places by IEHOVAH. And three times in a combination form. However, if the tetragrammaton occurs with the Hebrew word adonai (Lord) then it is rendered not as the "Lord LORD" but as the "Lord God".
In later editions as "Lord GOD" with "GOD" in small capitals indicating to the reader that God's name appears in the original Hebrew. For the Old Testament, the translators used a text originating in the editions of the Hebrew Rabbinic Bible by. But adjusted this to conform to the Greek.
In passages to which Christian tradition had attached a. Reading They pierced my hands and my feet. Reading of the Hebrew "like lions my hands and feet".
Otherwise, however, the Authorized Version is closer to the Hebrew tradition than any previous English translation-especially in making use of the rabbinic commentaries, such as. In elucidating obscure passages in the. Earlier versions had been more likely to adopt LXX or Vulgate readings in such places. Following the practice of the.The books of 1 Esdras and 2 Esdras in the medieval Vulgate Old Testament were renamed' Ezra. ; 3 Esdras and 4 Esdras in the Apocrypha being renamed' 1 Esdras. For the New Testament, the translators chiefly used the 1598 and 1588/89 Greek editions of.
Which also present Beza's Latin version of the Greek and. S edition of the Latin Vulgate.
Both of these versions were extensively referred to, as the translators conducted all discussions amongst themselves in Latin.
