The King James Version (KJV),
also known as the Authorized Version (AV) or the King
James Bible (KJB), is an English translation of the
Christian Bible for the Church of England begun in 1604
and completed in 1611. The books of the King James
Version include the 39 books of the Old Testament, an
intertestamental section containing 14 books of the
Apocrypha, and the 27 books of the New Testament.
It was first printed by the King's Printer Robert Barker
and was the third translation into English, approved by
the English Church authorities. The first had been the
Great Bible, commissioned in the reign of King Henry
VIII (1535), and the second had been the Bishops' Bible
of 1568. In January 1604, James I convened the Hampton
Court Conference, where a new English version was
conceived in response to the problems of the earlier
translations perceived by the Puritans, a faction of the
Church of England. The translation is widely considered
to be both beautiful and scholarly and thus a towering
achievement in English literature.
James gave the translators instructions intended to
ensure that the new version would conform to the
ecclesiology and reflect the episcopal structure of the
Church of England and its belief in an ordained clergy.
The translation was done by 47 scholars, all of whom
were members of the Church of England. In common with
most other translations of the period, the New Testament
was translated from Greek, the Old Testament from Hebrew
and Aramaic, and the Apocrypha from Greek and Latin. In
the Book of Common Prayer (1662), the text of the
Authorized Version replaced the text of the Great Bible
for Epistle and Gospel readings (but not for the
Psalter, which substantially retained Coverdale's Great
Bible version) and as such was authorized by Act of
By the first half of the 18th century, the Authorized
Version had become effectively unchallenged as the
English translation used in Anglican and English
Protestant churches, except for the Psalms and some
short passages in the Book of Common Prayer of the
Church of England. Over the course of the 18th century,
the Authorized Version supplanted the Latin Vulgate as
the standard version of scripture for English-speaking
scholars. With the development of stereotype printing at
the beginning of the 19th century, this version of the
Bible became the most widely printed book in history,
almost all such printings presenting the standard text
of 1769 extensively re-edited by Benjamin Blayney at
Oxford, and nearly always omitting the books of the
Apocrypha. Today the unqualified title "King James
Version" usually indicates that this Oxford standard
text is meant.
