The King James Version of the Bible has stood the test of time.

Now it’s catching up with the times.
Barbour’s Simplified KJV builds off the familiarity and trustworthiness of the King James Bible while removing the difficulties of antiquated language and punctuation.
Keeping all the original translation work of the 1611 Bible, the Simplified KJV carefully updates old styles that may interfere with your understanding today:

  • outdated verb styles are refreshed—for example, art becomes are; gavest becomes gave
  • old forms of address—like thee, thou, and ye—are updated
  • confusing older terms—such as wroth or divers—are modernized
  • pronouns for God—He, His, Him, You, Yours, Me, My—are capitalized for clarity
  • quotation marks are included with spoken language
  • long sentences are shortened with modern punctuation
  • paragraphs are added throughout
The Simplified KJV maintains the feel of the original King James while markedly increasing its readability, bringing the trustworthy old translation into the 21st century.

    Gorgeous Word

    Published by Sally Mander on Jun 23, 2022

    5 Stars, Gorgeous Word SIMPLIFIED KJV HOLY BIBLE [Wildflower Medley] by Barbour Staff The KJV of the Holy Bible is arduous. It is quite hard to read and grasp the meaning of the words. I leaped at the chance to read and review this copy of The Simplified KJV [King James Version] of the Holy Bible. The Simplified KJV is easy to read and understand, especially since the original KJV was first published in 1611. As you can imagine, everyone talks and probably thinks differently than Christians did in 1611. KJV has always been the "GoTo" Bible, but I have always aimed for a NAS [New American Standard] or NIV [New International Version]. This Holy Bible has wider outside margins for notes or Bible Doodling. I'm not quite sure how to utilize this aspect of this book, I feel funny drawing or excessively marking up one of my bibles, but I have decided to make The Simplified KJV [Wildflower Medley] be our family's Holy Bible. There are a couple of blank yellow pages at the beginning and the ending for family history, namely our family's Births, Marriages, and Deaths. Since it is a hardcover book, it will be able to stand the test of time to be handed down through the generations. Available in Wildflower Medley, and Pewter Branch cloth over boards. These beautiful First editions were released on 1 May 2022. Each Bible has a lovely ribbon marker. There is a presentation page at the beginning, for it to be given as a gift. The words of Jesus Christ are printed in red ink. Each Book of the Bible has a title page, that lists INTRODUCTION TO [about], AUTHOR [who], OCCASION [why it was written]. There is an index at the beginning, separation of the books of the Bible, Old Testament, and New Testament. It has an amazing SKJV Revision Process, so you can see exactly what the 1611 word that was used, and the 2022 word that Barbour Publishing used in its place. There is a dictionary/concordance to help you with your studies, and also full-color maps to help you get a feel for the locations where things happened in the bible. I highly recommend it, if you are a Christian, a new believer, a non-believer, or simply curious, this Simplified KJV Holy Bible is for you. Anyone can use this copy, easily. With much gratitude, I received a complimentary copy of #thesimplifiedKJV #wildflowermedley from #BarbourPublishingInc #BarbourBibles #BarbourStaff #Barbour I was not required to post a review. #gifts #HolyBible #Christian #English #God #JesusChrist #FavoriteNonFiction #FavoriteBooks #amazing #PewterBranch #SKJV
