Oxford 1833 reprint

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Intro

It's the 1611 version of the king james bible that is the right one. Not the 1769 version. So you should buy the 1611 version of the Authorized version (AV). Often you can find these bibles in your national internet bookstore. Search on ISBN number. First find the book on the international publishers homepage. Take the isbn number and put it directly into google or into the search field of the national internet bookstore.

The bible you need is also available for free on the internet. It is the 1833 edition.

One exception to this was a scrupulous original-spelling, page-for-page, and line-for-line reprint of the 1611 edition (including all chapter headings, marginalia, and original italicization, but with Roman type substituted for the black letter of the original), published by Oxford in 1833.[1]
