King James Bible Library
After four hundred years the English language has evolved but much of the KJV’s style
is due to its faithful translation of the underlying Hebrew and Greek texts.
Modern English translations do not use the same texts as the King James Bible.
Recent research however favours the manuscripts that support the Authorised Version.
Strong's Exhaustive Concordance was created by Dr. James Strong. With a team of linguists
he catalogued every word in the KJV to its Greek and Hebrew origins.
Noah Webster published his paraphrased KJV Bible in 1833. This section describes the
changes he made which can still be helpful to readers today.
In 1525 William Tyndale produced the first printed translation of the New Testament in English. The
style of Tyndale’s work made his translation the basis for the King James Version.
When King James I came to the throne of England in 1603 the Conformists wanted things to stay the same
and the Puritans wanted change. In 1604 King James gave his answer.
The completion of the King James Bible was marked by a speech from the translators. The speech
was printed in the front of the 1611 edition and gives insight into the life and times of the period.
