Why do so many Baptist churches claim to use the 1611 King James Bible when they really use the updated spelling version produced in 1769? For example, this site, which lists websites, talks about being "AV 1611 compliant". However, at the top of the page is the following quotation from Psalm 12: "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever" (Psalm 12:6-7) This quotation comes from the updated spelling version of the KJV. Here is the relevant part from a scan of the original 1611 print: "The wordes of the Lord are pure wordes: as ſiluer tried in a fornace of earth purified ſeuen times.Thou ſhalt keepe them, (O Lord,) thou ſhalt preſerue them, from this generation for euer." (Psalme XII, 6-7) There are other sites for churches that claim to use the 1611 KJV yet when you see quotes from the Bible they are actually from the 1769 spelling updated version. Why then do they claim to use the 1611 AV? If you claim to use the 1611 KJV, then I'd recommend just saying the KJV unless you've got long s and r rotunda and old spellings.
