Who Is The Best Publisher Of The King James Version?

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest

Hi everyone. I have read that the KJV sometimes differs among publishers. Who is the best publisher to get a KJV from? :puzzled:

The Defined King James Bible is excellent.

As far as publishers go, I don't know if there are ones that are better or best - but for those who are concerned, I would stay away from Thomas Nelson. From what I have read, it is mostly these guys who are changing words here and there - mostly just spelling or capitalization - but I would stay away from them even because of that. Somewhere along the way, the meaning is going to get changed (for example, changing Spirit to spirit in some passages gives the impression that it is not the Holy Spirit but man's spirit that is in view).

I particullarly like the ones produced by the ministry, Bearing Precious Seed. They are a local church ministry. Here is a link:

I have heard nothing but good about these Bibles,I would like to see one.
I also talk to many owners of the Defined and they like them too.

Nothing I hate worse than mistakes in Bibles, I have a brand new Thompson and it collects dust.

Thank you everyone. The KJV Bible that I have is from Thomas Nelson Publishers. My pastor seemed to think it was alright so I will stick with it until I have the money to buy one off of BPS. :smile

I've seen numerous BPS Bibles, and they are gorgeous. And they are original text, no spellings or capitalizations changed. This is my preference, but I am a little more protective of my bible than some.

The best part about BPS Bibles is the price. Here in Canada, you can barely find a wide margin Bible anymore, and very few retail outlets carry them. Imagine the odd looks I got trying to explain that I needed a wide margin Bible, and it couldn't be anything but King James. When I finally found one, it was going to cost around $120 CAD. The BPS wide margin Bible will cost me around $50. If you are looking to get a good KJB, these ones are great!

A few of the many incorrect readings in many KJV editions:
Joshua 19:2 "Beer-sheba, and Sheba" (correct reading is "Beer-sheba, or Sheba")
2 Chronicles 33:19 "sins" (correct reading is "sin")
Jeremiah 34:16 "whom he" (correct reading is "whom ye")

From the examples Samer gave, 2 of my Thomas Nelson KJV Bibles had 1 error each, while my Authorized KJV's were correct. Samer, is there a web site that shows all the errors?

I have an Old Scofield bible and it's published by Oxford University Press. I pretty happy with it. It retains some of the older spellings of words and stuff, but I don't think they change anything either. So if you're concerned for having an "authentic" KJB, in my opinion, you wouldn't go wrong with Oxford UP.

These are how it reads in http://phpBible.org (my site, which is also used here) I'd not seen these before. I have them marked to change for the next version of phpBible.org. Thanks

Just to let you know, I have a KJV Large Print Compact Bible published by Holman bible publisher and I found on the last few pages of the bible (under the paragraph titled "Read the Bible Thoughout Your Life") that says "Once you have read the bible through, do it again - in a different translation or bible version."

I figure some of you might be interested in knowing that.

The MV publishers will do anything to promote their other translations, make a few more dollars, and sow a little more ecumenical heresy. Even when I wasn't KJVonly, I found I got the most from my Bible when I stuck with one Bible. Too many people flopping around from one to another, and they haven't mastered any of them. When I finally started researching the differences between Bible versions, I didn't even need my main version handy to know that there were differences. Those differences got my attention, and led me to become King James Bible only. The more differences I learn, the more I am glad I am clinging to my KJV!

At the moment, I am using a KKV Open Bible (Thomas Nelson Publishing)--the 1985 edition. I also own (this was my very first Bible after I got saved) the older (1974) KJV Open Bible (Thomas Nelson Publishing). The words in those verses Samer cited were changed in the newer (the Bible I am using at church) edition, but not in the older (1974) edition.

I also have a Defined KJB (Bible For Today)--I think I'm going to carry that one to church instead of that Open Bible. The changes are subtle, but they are there.

Thank you Samer--I appreciate the information.

I also like Bearing Presious Seed bibles. I am currently using a Thompson Chain by kirkbridge 1988 C. and I have not found any changes. I also have a KJV by Zondervan that is loaded with changes. My next bible will probably be a BPS bible. I have also notices that some of the bible programs such as E-Sword have KJV versions that differ in a few spots.

1 Timothy 4:1-2 ¶ Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

Its only going to get worse. We must enter the battle and keep fighting the good fight. :thumb
