    I was surfing and read some articles that stated that punctuation was not 'invented" until the 1500's.

    If that is true, to stay true to the original manuscripts - should all punctuation be removed from KJVO Bibles?

    Not really being facetious here, just thinking consistency

    I could not find a particular website that discussed punctuation solely, so I goggled Punctuation was not invented until the 1500's

    I think the translators backfit the punctuation based on the syntax and inflection of the original language. So perhaps its semi inspired. :)

    Would say once in a while its a shame they did a paragraph break, as the writer was still making/finishing up a point! paul tended to be long winded, so at times they 'cut him off!"

    Yes, lets us add chapters (13th Century) and verses 16th Century) as being not inspired?

    Do you mean the 1769?

    None of the twenty or so more varying editions of the KJV in print today that I have been examining are 100% identical to the text of the 1769 Oxford edition of the KJV. There would be over 200 differences between the 1769 Oxford edition and any present KJV edition.

    Concerning punctuation, the 1769 Oxford had the misplaced comma at Hebrews 10:12 that would change the interpretation of that verse. That comma was not changed back for around 200 years [from 1638 Cambridge until 1838 London edition].

    Hebrews 10:12 [comma that changes interpretation or meaning]
    sins, for ever (1675, 1679, 1709, 1715, 1728, 1747, 1754, 1758, 1762, 1765, 1768, 1769, 1770, 1771, 1772, 1773, 1774, 1777, 1778, 1783, 1784, 1787, 1788, 1791, 1792, 1795, 1795e, 1798, 1800, 1803, 1804, 1810, 1812, 1819, 1821, 1823, 1828, 1829, 1830, 1835, 1838, 1840 Oxford) [1638, 1683, 1743, 1747, 1758, 1760, 1762, 1763B, 1765, 1767, 1768, 1769, 1778, 1790, 1795, 1800, 1817, 1822, 1824, 1833, 1837, 1844 Cambridge] {1660, 1684, 1711, 1735, 1747, 1750, 1759, 1760, 1763, 1767, 1772, 1795, 1813, 1814, 1817, 1819, 1824, 1825, 1834 London} (1722, 1756, 1764, 1766, 1769, 1787, 1789, 1791, 1793, 1810, 1820, 1842, 1851, 1858 Edinburgh) (1762 Dublin) (1700 MP) (1770 Dodd) (1782 Aitken) (1791, 1816 Collins) (1791 Thomas) (1801 Hopkins) (1803 Etheridge) (1807 Johnson) (1809, 1810, 1818, 1828 Boston) (1813 Carey) (1815 Walpole) (1816 Albany) (1818 Holbrook) (Clarke) (1818, 1819, 1829, 1843 ABS) (1827 Smith) (1831 Brown) (1832 PSE) (1835 Scott) (1836 Hartford) (1846 Portland) (1854, 1876 Harding) (1856 AFBS) (1924, 1958 Hertel)

    If there could only be one English Bible then it should have been the 1560 Geneva.

    Tyndale's did not include the complete Old Testament.
