    EVERY book and every Bible risks publisher's errors. These are NOT intentional, but it is fun to see how these errors "snuck" in and changed entire meanings.

    Different publishers over the years have made over 100 various “editions” and "revisions" of the King James Version. Many have made errors in typeset, etc, and have become “famous” for these errors.

    Of course, we laugh because we do the same thing with our typing, inverting letters or switching words.

    25 PUBLISHERS' ERRORS IN DIFFERENT EDITIONS OF THE KJV</font>
    • “He” Bible = 1611 KJV – “he” is inserted in Ruth</font>
    • “She” Bible = 1611 KJV – “she” is in Ruth to replace “he”</font>
    • “Judas’” Bible = 1611 KJV – the name of the son of God is “Judas” (instead of Jesus)</font>
    • “Fool’s” Bible = 1619 KJV – the fool has said in his heart, “There is a God” (instead of no God)</font>
    • “Wicked” Bible = 1631 KJV – “thou shalt commit adultery” (omitting “not”)</font>
    • “Forgotten” Bible = 1638 KJV – “thy sins are forgotten” (to adulterous woman, instead of forgiven)</font>
    • “More Sea” Bible = 1641 KJV – “there shall be more sea” (instead of “no more sea”)</font>
    • “Unrighteous” Bible = 1653 KJV – “the unrighteous shall inherit the kingdom” (instead of righteous)</font>

    • “Printer’s” Bible = 1702 KJV – “printers have persecuted me” (instead of princes)</font>
