Characteristics of the Authorized KJV Bible, 1769 Oxford edition

Different editions of the Bible have different spellings of persons' names, therefore it was really important to determine which Bible to use as a basis for generating the person name index used on this website.

The greatest help at this phase of the work was F.H.A. Scrivener's book "The authorized edition of the English Bible (1611) Its Subsequent Reprints and Modern Representatives", as it lists the characteristics of the main KJV editions.

The KJV Bible that is used on this website was downloaded from the Oxford Text Archive and then was compared to the listings printed in the book above in order to determine which edition it was. The answer was the 1769 Oxford edition.

The following is a list of verses, where you can find some of the differences between the various editions. The person names are marked bold to show which names would have been spelled differently on this website if the Bible used here would not have been selected carefully.

Please note that while it is important to pinpoint these differences when you use the Bible as a basis for a reference work, they do not alter the original message of the Bible.
