The Original King James Bibles 1611 PDF – Authorised Version
This is the original Bible printed in 1611. It is the first of a long line of King James Bibles.
Work on this English translation began in 1604 and was completed in 1611. Forty seven scholars were involved in translating The Old Testament, The New Testament and the Apocrypha into English. All of these scholars were members of the Church of England (CoE).
The King James Bible is the third Authorised Version of the Bible. The First was The Great Bible and then the Bishop\’s Bible.
The official title of this Bible is: THE HOLY BIBLE, Containing the Old Testament, AND THE NEW: Newly Translated out of the Original tongues: & with the former Translations diligently compared and revised, by his Majesties special Commandment. From around 1814 this Bible was also called the King James Bible, The King James Version, the Authorised Version and the Authorized Version.
It was printed by the King’s Printer Robert Barker
