    In the last few months, I have obtained copies of several KJV editions printed at Oxford in England.
    The last one I obtained was printed at the Clarendon Press by William Jackson and William Dawson in 1795. I am checking this 1795 Oxford KJV edition to see if it still had some of the renderings that are reported to have been in the 1769 Oxford KJV edition. While it is possible that the 1795 Oxford edition is not every word the same as the 1769 Oxford edition, the 1795 Oxford is much more likely to be in agreement with the 1769 than is the present Oxford edition printed in the Scofield Reference Bible. My examination of this 1795 Oxford KJV edition shows that it has several renderings that came from the 1769 Oxford edition that are not found in the present Oxford edition. The listing for the 1769 Oxford edition is based on the statements made by Scrivener, David Norton, and others who have examined the 1769 Oxford edition and stated that it has this rendering.

    Based on this evidence, are the Oxford KJV editions in print today every word the same as the 1769 Oxford edition?
