I was looking through a book in the library . It's called "A Textual History Of The King James Bible" by David Norton . Here are some of his thoughts found on pages 126 and 127 . The modern King James Version is a mutated version of a seventeenth century text with partially modernized spelling , punctuation and presentation .Some of the mutations are necessary corrections of errors of negligence in the original , some of them are deliberate changes made in good faith to improve the text according to the judgment of many successive individuals , individuals who often worked anonymously and even more often left no account of their work . Many of these changes do not stand up to critical examination , and the spelling , punctuation and presentation are all in acute need of further modernization .
