I borrowed this from a website on the KJB in regards to influences that any translation of the Bible has ever made: "1. 270 years transpired before anyone dared produce another major English translation. 2. The King James Bible dominated the time in history characterized by the greatest Bible preaching and teaching, missionary work, evangelism, church building, and doctrinal development the world has ever known. 3. The King James Bible became the primary influence on the literature, education, government, law, and philosophy of numerous generations of English-speaking people around the globe. 4. The King James Bible has been read, studied, quoted, memorized, believed, and loved by more people than any other version of the Bible in any language in history, including that of the original languages."
