By King James Isten

The third official English translation of the Bible, the King James Version was first published in 1611 and has remained the standard for many theologians and Bible scholars to this day. It has also been the basis for many other English Bibles, forming the foundation of their text. Commissioned under King James of England, the seven-year-long translation was performed from Hebrew (Old Testament) and Greek (New Testament) by 47 scholars, based at Westminster, and the Universities at Cambridge and Oxford.
