    While I have posted the comparison of the Cambridge Standard Text Edition and the present Oxford KJV edition at least once before, this list now includes a few more differences now found previously.

    Consider a present day KJV that is published by Cambridge University Press in Great Britain [ISBN 0-521-50882-7]. It is identified as a "standard text edition." It differs from the standard text in the Oxford edition in the Scofield Bible in several places. This Cambridge edition has “spirit of God“ (Gen. 1:2) for “Spirit of God,” "assuaged" (Gen. 8:1) for "asswaged," "plucked" (Gen. 8:11) for "pluckt," “Sabtecha“ (Gen. 10:7) for “Sabtechah,” "mortar" (Gen. 11:3) for "morter," “theirs“ (Gen. 15:13, 34:23, 43:34) for “their‘s,” “fetched“ (Gen. 18:7) for “fetcht,” “entreat“ for “intreat“ (Gen. 23:8), “Abida“ (Gen. 25:4) for “Abidah,” “ours“ (Gen. 26:20, 31:16, 34:23) for “our‘s,” “chestnut“ (Gen. 30:37) for “chesnut,” "aught" (Gen. 39:6, 47:18) for "ought," “today“ (Gen. 40:7) for “to day,” “spirit of God“ (Gen. 41:38) for “Spirit of God,” “Zerah“ (Gen. 46:12) for “Zarah,” “basins“ (Exod. 24:6) for “basons,” "veil" (Exod. 26:31) for "vail," "plaster" (Lev. 14:42) for "plaister," "plastered" (Lev. 14:43) for "plaistered," "crookbacked" (Lev. 21:20) for "crookbackt," “jubilee“ (Lev. 25:9) for “jubile,” “mixed“ (Num. 11:4) for “mixt,” “ours“ (Num. 32:32) for “our‘s,” “aught“ (Deut. 4:2) for “ought,” “yours“ (Deut. 11:24) for “your‘s,” “awl“ (Deut. 15:17) for “aul,” “hers“ (Deut. 21:15) for “her‘s,” "rearward" (Josh. 6:9, 13) for "rereward," “Jahazah“ (Josh. 13:18) for “Jahaza,” "or Sheba" (Josh. 19:2) for "and Sheba," “Hapharaim“ (Josh. 19:19) for “Haphraim,” “spirit“ (Jud. 3:10) for “Spirit,” “wondrously“ (Jud. 13:19) for “wonderously,” "steadfastly" (Ruth 1:18) for "stedfastly," “hasted“ (1 Sam. 17:48) for “hastened,” “spirit“ (1 Sam. 19:20, 2 Sam. 23:2) for “Spirit,” “inquired“ (1 Sam. 22:13) for “enquired,” “Malchi-shua“ (1 Sam. 31:2) for “Melchi-shua,” “aught“ (2 Sam. 3:35) for “ought,” “Shammua“ (2 Sam. 5:14) for “Shammuah,” “Shimea“ (2 Sam. 21:21) for “Shimeah,” “spirit“ (2 Sam. 23:2) for “Spirit,” “Naharai“ (2 Sam. 23:37) for “Nahari,” "ceiling" (1 Kings 6:15) for "cieling," “the LORD“ (1 Kings 8:56) for “the Lord,” “spirit“ (1 Kings 18:12, 22:24) for “Spirit,“ “inquire“ (1 Kings 22:8) for “enquire,” “hers“ (2 Kings 8:6) for “her‘s,” "the LORD" (2 Kings 19:23) for "the Lord," “Ezer“ (1 Chron. 1:38) for “Ezar,” “Geshan“ (1 Chron. 2:47) for “Gesham,” “Achsah“ (1 Chron. 2:49) for “Achsa,” “Salchah“ (1 Chron. 5:11) for “Salcah,” “Shimron“ (1 Chron. 7:1) for “Shimrom,” “Shemida“ (1 Chron. 7:19) for “Shemidah,” “Jehoshua“ (1 Chron. 7:27) for “Jehoshuah,” “Michah“ (1 Chron. 23:20) for “Micah,” “Jeshua“ (1 Chron. 24:11) for “Jeshuah,” "floats" (2 Chron. 2:16) for "flotes," "ceiled" (2 Chron. 3:5) for "cieled," “spirit“ (2 Chron. 15:1, 18:23, 20:14, 24:20) for “Spirit,” “Ezion-geber“ (2 Chron. 20:36) for “Ezion-gaber,” "sin" (2 Chron. 33:19) for "sins," “Carchemish“ (2 Chron. 35:20) for “Charchemish,” “Mispar“ (Ezra 2:2) for “Mizpar,” “Asnappar“ (Ezra 4:10) for “Asnapper,” "O LORD" (Neh. 1:11) for "O Lord," “LORD“ (Neh. 3:5) for “Lord,” "entreated" (Job 19:17) for "intreated," “spirit“ (Job 33:4) for “Spirit,” “grayheaded“ (Ps. 71:18) for “greyheaded,” "vapour" (Ps. 148:8) for "vapours," “two-edged“ (Ps. 149:6) for “twoedged,” "inquiry" (Prov. 20:25) for "enquiry," “gray“ (Prov. 20:29) for “grey,” “further“ (Eccl. 8:17) for “farther,” “rearward“ (Isa. 52:12) for “rereward,” “cloak“ (Isa. 59:17) for “cloke,” "holy spirit" (Isa. 63:10) for "holy Spirit," "whom ye" (Jer. 34:16) for "whom he," "portray" (Ezek. 4:1) for "pourtray," “spirit“ (Ezek. 11:5, 24) for “Spirit,” “Kerioth“ (Amos 2:2) for “Kirioth,” "flieth" (Nah. 3:16) for "fleeth," “inquired“ (Matt. 2:7) for “enquired,” "Spirit" (Matt. 4:1) for "spirit," "theirs" (Matt. 5:3) for "their's," “aught“ (Matt. 5:23) for “ought,” "cloak" (Matt. 5:40) for "cloke," "lunatic" (Matt. 17:15) for "lunatick," "sponge" (Matt. 27:48) for "spunge," “Spirit“ (Mark 1:12) for “spirit,” “further“ (Mark 1:19) for “farther,” "yours" (Luke 6:20) for "your's," “havoc“ (Acts 8:3) for “havock,” “inquiry“ (Acts 10:17) for “enquiry,” “grafted“ (Rom. 11:23) for “graffed,” “graft” (Rom. 11:23) for “graff,“ “entreaty” (2 Cor. 8:4) for “intreaty,“ “entreat” (Phil. 4:3) for “intreat,“ “cloak“ (2 Tim. 4:13) for “cloke,” “Nicolaitans“ (Rev. 2:6) for “Nicolaitanes,” “Spirit of life” (Rev. 11:11) for “spirit of life,“ and "chrysolite" (Rev. 21:20) for "chrysolyte."

    I do not think that I have ever posted before my comparison of the following KJV edition with the Oxford KJV edition in the Scofield Reference Bible.

    A present-day edition is entitled The King James Red Letter Bible (Special Study Edition) and was published in Palm Beach, Florida. Its publisher or editor is a KJV defender, perhaps even a KJV-only advocate. This KJV edition has a page of "changes in spelling and word usage" (p. xxii). Some example differences in this KJV include the following: "between" for "betwixt" (Gen. 17:11), “brought“ for “fetcht“ (Gen. 18:7), "got" for "gat" (Gen. 19:27), "that is" for "to wit" (Gen. 24:21), "lain" for "lien" (Gen. 26:10), "knew" for "wotteth" (Gen. 39:8), "grizzled" for "grisled" (Gen. 31:10), "honorable" for "honourable" (Gen. 34:19), “stripped“ for “stript“ (Gen. 37:23), "loathe" for "lothe" (Exod. 7:18), “basins“ for “basons“ (Exod. 24:6), "knob" for "knop" (Exod. 25:33), "spew" for "spue" (Lev. 18:28), "crookback" for "crookbackt" (Lev. 21:20), “jubilee“ for “jubile“ (Lev. 25:9), “mixed“ for “mixt“ (Num. 11:4), "my LORD" for "my Lord" (Num. 14:17), "ribbon" for "ribband" (Num. 15:38), "evil-favoredness" for "evilfavouredness" (Deut. 17:1), "rearward" for "rereward" (Josh. 6:9), "that is" for "to wit" (Josh. 17:1), "withes" for "withs" (Jud. 16:7), "unsavory" for "unsavoury" (2 Sam. 22:27), "the LORD" for "the Lord" (1 Kings 3:10), "ceiling" for "cieling" (1 Kings 6:15), "to that is" instead of "to wit" (1 Chron. 7:2), "sneezings" for "neesings" (Job 41:18), "the LORD" for "the Lord" (Ps. 2:4), "endeavors" for "endeavours" (Ps. 28:4), “helped“ for “holpen“ (Ps. 83:8, 86:17), "paid" for "payed" (Prov. 7:14), “repaid“ for “repayed“ (Prov. 13:21), "soldering" for "sodering" (Isa. 41:7), "Holy Spirit" for "holy Spirit" (Isa. 63:10), "since" for "sith" (Ezek. 35:6), "marshes" for "marishes" (Ezek. 47:11), "public" for "publick" (Matt. 1:19), "Immanuel" for "Emmanuel" (Matt. 1:23), "cloak" for "cloke" (Matt. 5:40), "show" for "shew" (Matt. 8:4), "dare" for "durst" (Matt. 22:46), "sponge" for "spunge" (Matt. 27:40), "helped" for "holpen" (Luke 1:54), "before" for "ere" (John 4:49), “havoc“ for “havock“ (Acts 8:3), "near" for "nigh" (Acts 9:38), "sergeants" for "serjeants" (Acts 16:35), "bring" for "fetch" (Acts 16:37), "know" for "wist" (Acts 23:5), “struck“ for “strake“ (Acts 27:17), "hoisted" for "hoised" (Acts 27:40), "honors" for "honours" (Acts 28:10), "brought" for "fetched" (Acts 28:13), "know" for "wot" (Rom. 11:2), “grafted“ for “graffed“ (Rom. 11:23), "clamor" for "clamour" (Eph. 4:31), "example" for ensample" (Phil. 3:17), "always" for "alway" (Phil. 4:4), "behavior" for "behaviour" (Tit. 2:3), and "Savior" for "Saviour" (2 Pet. 1:1).

Other differences could probably be found with more examination.

    Hopefully the information in my posts in this thread will provide any one interested in comparing present KJV editions a good starting place. It is possible that a few of the references were typed incorrectly. If you find any mistakes, please do point them out.

    Thank you Brother Logos1560 for your research in this area.

    'KJV" is a misnomer.
    The correct term for many circulstances is KJVs

    Re: 1873 Cambridge and present Zonderan KJV

    This 1873 and present Zondervan KJV edition has "strain out" at Matthew 23:24 instead of "strain at." It has "profession of our hope" at Hebrews 10:23 instead of "profession of our faith." At John 10:25, this 1873 edition has "ye believe not" in agreement with several of the earlier English Bibles while most present KJV's have "ye believed not." At Acts 25:23, it has "were entered" in agreement with several earlier English Bibles while most KJV's have "was entered" following the Bishops' Bible. This 1873 edition has "thy mercy's sake" (Psalm 6:4, 31:16, 44:26) for the Oxford edition's "thy mercies' sake," “fathers‘ house“ for “father‘s house“ (1 Chron. 7:2, Ezra 2:59, Neh. 7:61), “heart’s lust” for “hearts’ lust” (Ps. 81:12), “Adder‘s poison“ for “adders‘ poison“ (Ps. 140:3), “fools‘ back” for “fool‘s back“ (Prov. 26:3), “merchant’s ships” for “merchants’ ships” (Prov. 31:14), “priests‘” for “priest’s” (Ezek. 44:30), “potter’s clay” for “potters’ clay” (Dan. 2:41), and “oaths’ sake” for “oath’s sake” (Matt. 14:9, Mark 6:26). It has “mine hands” for “my hands” (Isa. 65:2) and “mine hand” for “my hand” (Jer. 25:15, Ezek. 6:14). It has “thine hand” for “thy hand” (Isa. 64:8).


    The text of this KJV edition is more in agreement with the 1611 edition than are most other present KJV editions. Scrivener presented a list of the places in his 1873 edition that he restored 1611 readings (Authorized Edition, pp. 215-237). The Old Testament of this edition has “you“ for “ye“ (Gen. 9:4), “Girgashite“ for “Girgasite“ (Gen. 10:16), “towards“ for “toward“ (Gen. 15:5), “this thing“ for “this thing also“ (Gen. 19:21), “lift“ for “lifted“ (Gen. 22:4), “amongst“ for “among“ (Gen. 23:10), “to him“ for “unto him“ (Gen. 25:33), “Philistims“ for “Philistines“ (Gen. 26:1), "hand” for “hands” (Gen. 39:1), “spirit” for “Spirit” (Gen. 41:38), “drunk“ for “drank“ (Gen. 43:34), “any man” for “any men” (Gen. 47:6), “Haste you“ for “Haste ye“ (Gen. 45:9), “And you“ for “And ye“ (Gen. 45:13), “you did“ for “ye did“ (Exod. 10:11), “consecrations“ for “consecration“ (Exod. 29:26), “clothes“ for “cloths“ (Exod. 31:10), “stript“ for “stripped“ (Exod. 33:6), “manner fat“ for “manner of fat“ (Lev. 7:23), “nor scales“ for “and scales“ (Lev. 11:10), “were“ for “are“ (Lev. 25:23), “river side“ for “river‘s side“ (Num. 24:6), “begun“ for “began“ (Num. 25:1), “thy hand“ for “thine hand“ (Deut. 2:24), “thy heart“ for “thine heart“ (Deut. 15:7), “thy oil“ for “thine oil“ (Deut. 18:4), “all lost thing“ for “all lost things“ (Deut. 22:3), “noondays“ for “noonday“ (Deut. 28:29), “even the Lord” for “of the Lord” (Josh. 3:11), “or Sheba“ for “and Sheba“ (Josh. 19:2), “spirit” for “Spirit” (Jud. 3:10), “a hammer“ for “an hammer“ (Jud. 4:21), “he went” for “she went” (Ruth 3:15), “girt“ for “girded“ (1 Sam. 2:4), “my heart“ for “mine heart“ (1 Sam. 2:35), “in the fields” for “in the field” (1 Sam. 20:5), “wrapt“ for “wrapped“ (1 Sam. 21:9), “rose“ for “arose“ (1 Sam. 24:8), “a hill“ for “an hill“ (1 Sam. 26:13), “thy word“ for “thy words“ (1 Kings 3:12), “the LORD“ for “the Lord“ (1 Kings 8:56), “flotes“ for “floats“ (1 Kings 5:9), “son” for “sons” (1 Kings 13:11), “leese“ for “lose“ (1 Kings 18:5), “a horse “ for “an horse“ (1 Kings 20:20), “neesed“ for “sneezed“ (2 Kings 4:35), “kab“ for “cab“ (2 Kings 6:25), “to give to him“ for “to give him“ (2 Kings 8:19), “Geshan“ for “Gesham“ (1 Chron. 2:47), “Shimron“ for “Shimrom“ (1 Chron. 7:2), “men of might” for “valiant men of might” (1 Chron. 7:5), “son“ for “sons“ (1 Chron. 7:35), “Michah“ for “Micah“ (1 Chron. 23:20), “and laid” for “and they laid” (2 Chron. 29:23), “sin“ for “sins“ (2 Chron. 33:19), “and gold” for “and the gold” (Ezra 7:18), “built“ for “builded“ (Neh. 3:10, “cruddled“ for “curdled“ (Job 10:10), “sent“ for “scent“ (Job 14:9), “flying” for “fleeing” (Job 30:3), “the LORD“ for “the Lord“ (Ps. 2:4), “whiles” for “while” (Ps. 49:18), “holy Spirit“ for “holy spirit“ (Ps. 51:11), “Zion“ for “Sion“ (Ps. 65:1), “stablish“ for “establish“ (Ps. 89:4), “snare” for “snares” (Ps. 141:9), “vapour” for “vapors” (Ps. 148:8), “beareth“ for “bear“ (Song of Solomon 4:2), “mixt“ for “mixed“ (Isa. 1:22), “Get you” for “Get you” (Isa. 30:11), “burnt“ for “burned“ (Jer. 1:16), “nor daughters” for “or daughters” (Jer. 16:2), “sith“ for “since“ (Jer. 23:38), “afterwards” for “afterward” (Jer. 34:11), “word which“ for “word that“ (Jer. 40:1), “utter court” for “outer court” (Ezek. 10:5), “cropt“ for “cropped“ (Ezek. 17:4), “And the word” for “The word” (Ezek. 18:1), “ebeny“ for “ebony“ (Ezek. 27:15), “astrologians“ for “astrologers“ (Dan. 2:27), “a whirlwind” for “the whirlwind” (Hos. 13:3), “ript“ for “ripped“ (Hos. 13:16), “Kerioth“ for “Kirioth“ (Amos 2:2), “flieth” for “fleeth” (Nah. 3:16), and “Lord GOD“ for “LORD God“ (Hab. 3:19).

    2005 Cambridge KJV edition

    An examination of the new 2005 Cambridge KJV text edited by David Norton, which is also the text of the 2006 Penguin Classics KJV edition, indicates that there are at least 4,000 differences between it and the present Oxford text. Hundreds [perhaps a thousand or more] of these differences are because this 2005 edition goes back to many 1611 renderings. The updating of the spelling of many words also affected the sound over 1,700 times. In addition, the 2005 Cambridge used “a” instead of “an” before several words starting with h (over 300 differences). The 2005 Cambridge also used “thy” or “my” when used as adjectives instead of “thine” and “mine” in many cases (over 1100 differences). Together the changes total at least 4,000.

    Because of this large number of differences, I cannot post them in one post. If anyone wants other examples than the return to the 1611 renderings, I could list some.

    quote from an article by a KJV-only advocate that is found at the following web address baptistpillar.com/bdo161.htm

    "And this my friend is only a sampling, there are literally hundreds of places they have changed words, punctuation, and grammar. Some could say, “Well spelling is no big deal, writing Isaiah for Esaias in John 1:23, what does that matter?” Well, let’s take a look at the Thompson Chain Reference Bibles published by Kirkbride Bible Co. Published in 1988. John 4:24 in the Thompson chain reads, “God is a spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” Notice the change in “...God is a spirit...” and “...God is a Spirit...” in the K.J.V. In the Thompson chain published in 1964 it reads, “...God is a Spirit...”
    Why would they change winefat to winevat in the Annotated Study Bible? Why would they not tell you they have taken the liberty to change words, spelling, punctuation, and grammar? I hear the ssssssssss... of the serpent. I smell a rat. I hear, “Yea, hath God said,...” Some could still say, “Well, I don’t have a problem with changing the spelling, punctuation, or changing a few words, what harm could it do?” Confusion, is the answer, it causes confusion. Example, recently I was teaching in the Gospel of John and quoting from John 4:24, ““...God is a Spirit..” capital S,” I said, and one of our members said mine doesn’t say capital S it’s little s. “Yea, hath God said...” You see how easily the doubt and confusion could rise. We have always been able to see the confusion with using different translations but how much more if our K.J.V.’s don’t even say the same things. Jesus said in Mat. 24:35, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” Every word of God is important and in the K.J.V. we have every word and yes, every word
    does matter. The Lord Jesus Christ in these last 2,000 years has always used his church, the one he started, to defend, protect, and help preserve his Word. We’re slipping, let’s get to work. Our forefathers died and shed their blood so we could have the Word of God. Remember if a word has been changed they are saying there was a mistake. The K.J.V. is perfect without error, it doesn’t need to be changed, it needs to be read. "

    Absotively and posilutely (to use Cranston's terms)! The KJVs are perfect and without error except where there are errors! Many of those errors have been discussed at length here on these forums, so why go into them again? It is total error that leads to the false belief that there are no errors in the KJVs. No one with a clue about the translation process from one language to another should be naive enough to believe there are no errors in the KJVs.

    So there really was a true word of God before the KJV came along in 1611??? If there was a presserved word of God prior to 1611 then why did it need to be changed and updated into the KJV? We really do need to get to work to eradicate the confusion that the KJVO myth is causing in Christ's Church today.

    And if the 1611 KJV was perfect then why did it need to be changed and updated with later editions?

    Yeah, guess we humans don't have to make as many errors these days - just let the computers make the errors for us!

    The NKJV is a separate and newer translation. It's not just the KJV in modern language.

    The NKJV is merely a version with many errors.

    You are entitled to your opinion. If you intend your statement to be a claimed statement of fact, you have not provided valid evidence that supports it.

    Just compare the NKJV with the KJB, that's all anyone needs to do.

    Prove to me the NKJV isn't full of errors.
