The single most important book in the history of all Christian literature is presented here in the Authorized Version which has exerted such a profound influence on both spiritual life and the literary production of English-speaking cultures. The King James Bible was originally issued in the early years of the seventeenth century and is therefore contemporary with Shakespeare's last plays. Despite many subsequent attempts to render the text in good English, its beauty of language and rhetorical power still continue to eclipse any more recent translation. Most editions of the Bible are presented in columns. This text is laid out like a normal book to make for ease of reading and reference.
