God said, Be all of you holy; for I am holy.
For it is made holy by the word of God and by prayer.
Blessed is the man that
whose delight is in the law of the God,
and whose mind is on his law day and night.
As all of you would that men should do to you,
do all of you also to them likewise.
In 1604, King James I of England authorized that a new translation of the Bible into English be started.
It was finished in 1611, just 85 years after the first translation of the New Testament into English appeared (Tyndale, 1526).
The Authorized Version, or King James Version, quickly became the standard for English-speaking Protestants.
Its flowing language and prose rhythm has had a profound influence on the literature of the past 300 years.
The King James Version present on the Bible Gateway
matches the 1987 printing. The KJV is public domain in the United States.
