The King James Bible

The King James version of the Holy Bible is indeed a classic among the many English-language Bible translations that have become available. It has served many generations of Christians for nearly 400 years.

Bible The Authorized Version, as it is sometimes called, was prepared and written by a committee of scholars and churchmen led by Lancelot Andrewes in the time of King James I of England, Scotland and Ireland (reigned 1603-1625). Originally commissioned at the Hampton Court Conference in 1604, it was not completed until 1610/1611.

Even with the many excellent new translations available that are written in easier to understand modern English (the King James was also written in modern English - that of 1610), a great many people prefer to use this traditional favorite, at least in part. And for good reason - its classic old English sometimes paints a picture that other translations do not match.

Consider its moving translation of the 23rd Psalm:

"The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul. He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His Name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies. Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in The House of The Lord for ever."
