Bible : Old and New Testaments (King James Version)
include History of King James Bible and their work.
The King James Version (KJV), commonly
known as the Authorized Version (AV) or King James Bible (KJB), is an English
translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England begun in 1604 and
completed in 1611. First printed by the King's Printer Robert Barker, this was
the third translation into English to be approved by the English Church
authorities. The first was the Great Bible commissioned in the reign of King
Henry VIII, and the second was the Bishops' Bible of 1568. In January 1604,
King James I convened the Hampton Court Conference where a new English version
was conceived in response to the perceived problems of the earlier translations
as detected by the Puritans, a faction within the Church of England.
James gave the translators instructions
intended to guarantee that the new version would conform to the ecclesiology
and reflect the episcopal structure of the Church of England and its belief in
an ordained clergy. The translation was done by 47 scholars, all of whom were
members of the Church of England. In common with most other translations of the
period, the New Testament was translated from Greek, the Old Testament was
translated from Hebrew text, while the Apocrypha were translated from the Greek
and Latin. In the Book of Common Prayer (1662), the text of the Authorized
Version replaced the text of the Great Bible – for Epistle and Gospel readings
– and as such was authorized by Act of Parliament. By the first half of the
18th century, the Authorized Version was effectively unchallenged as the
English translation used in Anglican and Protestant churches. Over the course
of the 18th century, the Authorized Version supplanted the Latin Vulgate as the
standard version of scripture for English speaking scholars. Today, the most
used edition of the King James Bible, and often identified as plainly the King
James Version, especially in the United States, closely follows the standard
text of 1769, edited by Benjamin Blayney at Oxford.
