The King James Version Bible (KJV) was authorized by King James I and is sometimes referred to as the “Authorized Version”. It was translated by the Church of England and was first published in 1611.
The KJV New Testament was translated from the Textus Receptus. However, the majority of the book of Revelation seems to have been translated from the Latin Vulgate. The KJV Old Testament was translated from the Masoretic Hebrew text.
Several versions of the King James Bible (KJV) were produced in 1611,1629, 1638, 1762, and 1769.
The 1769 edition is most commonly cited as the King James Version (KJV).
In 1769 the Oxford University Press published an edition of the King James version in which many small changes were made. These changes were of five kinds:
1. Greater and more regular use of italics;
2. minor changes in the text;
3. the adoption of modern spelling;
4. changes in the marginal notes and references; and,
5. correction of printers' errors.
This edition soon came to be known as "The Oxford Standard" edition, because it was widely accepted as a standard text by commentators and other publishers.
