King James Version - KJV of the Bible was originally printed in 1611, but has gone through three revisions since then, incorporating over 100,000 changes. While it was translated extremely well, many of the words used aren’t found in today’s English language or have different meanings. However, the KJV is still believed by many to be the most literal English translation available. It is widely used for memorizing Scripture and for worship. The New King James Version sought to preserve the accuracy and poetry of the King James Version, but in a language that the everyday person could understand was released in 1982.
