If the Bible can be said to be the guide to mankind and their way of life, the King James Version of the Bible is certainly a book worth studying. An interesting fact is that the Bible actually has two translations of the same book, namely the Authorized Version and the New English Bible. Each of these versions is very popular with many people.
The New English Bible is known as the most popular version of the Bible in the United States and Canada. It was first published in 1952 and was produced to help meet the demands of the Church. The book was so popular that it eventually became known as “The King James Version”. According to survey data, the Book has sold more than three hundred million copies in the world today.
The Authorized version of the Bible is the copy of the original text. A number of places in the book have been changed or added by later editions. It is also a little controversial because many people consider certain changes made by later editions as heresy because they were not approved by the original author.
Both the King James Version and the New English Bible have a few differences between the main parts of the book. Study of the Bible always requires you to be familiar with these differences.
The King James Version was translated from a language called Old English. It contains some many words that are not found in other languages of the world. Most words were added to make the bible more understandable to the common people of the time.
Another interesting thing about the King James Version is that there are several words that were translated directly from the Old English language into the English language. These words include the terms bond, bless, brother, confession, door, last, lien, moneys, night, morning, ten, will, and words such as bare, but, better, cold, breast, build, and many others. Some scholars argue that these words should not have been changed in order to make the Bible more interesting and understandable.
The New English Bible was making to be a translation of the King James Version. It contains only a few words that were translated directly from the original King James Bible into English.
For people who love to study the Bible, both versions are highly recommended. Reading the King James Version and the New English Bible are an excellent way to begin your study of the Bible. Beginners often start with the New English Bible and progress to the King James Version as they get comfortable with reading and understand what it means.
