    The 1994 21st Century King James Version is an updating or very slight revision of the KJV. The 1998 Third Millennium Bible printed by the same publisher is also identical in text to the KJ21, but with the addition of the apocrypha books.

    Likewise, the King James 2000 Version is an updating of the KJV by Robert A. Couric. It includes a little more revision than the KJ21 does, correcting or changing a few less accurate or poor renderings in the KJV. It is printed by The Bible League, 16801 Van Dam Road, South Holland, IL 60473.

    Yes, if you mean seperate as in different company. Not sure how it compares to them though. I have the KJ3 and it uses the TR but also consults some of the newer manuscripts but doesn't state exactly where.

    I meant to write that the 1998 Third Millennium Bible is "almost" identical in text, instead of "also". There are a very few differences between the 1994 KJ21 and the 1998 TMB.

    One example of a difference is at Job 22:25

    Yes, the Almighty shall be thy gold (1994 KJ21)
    Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence (1998 TMB)

    Another example of a difference is at Job 30:31
    flute (KJ21)
    organ (TMB)

    Yes, they are both different from the revisions of the KJV done by Jay Green?

    The 1994 KJ21 and 1998 TMB would likely have fewer differences from the KJV than Green's Modern KJV and Green's Literal Translation. Green's revisions would be more like those in the KJ2000 although there are likely some differences in the minor revisions that they separately made to the KJV.

    Do you have a preference for which of them did the best job of "editing" the KJV?
