    Does anyone here know the likely source for a number of differences in several present editions of the KJV?

    These differences can be found in several KJV editions printed by different publishers. So far I have found some of them in as many as 12 different editions printed from around 1987 until 2012. They are found in gift and award KJV editions as well as study Bible editions. All the editions do not have all the differences so some publishers may have noticed and corrected some of them.

    Most of the differences do not involve updating of spelling or changes that would likely be considered intentional. My guess is that they may come from a digital or computer based text that someone made for a Bible software program, for an online web site, or for a publisher. In the typing, a word was sometimes added or sometimes omitted or sometimes changed, likely unintentionally.
