Simplified KJV


The King James Version of the Bible has stood the test of time.

Now it’s catching up with the times.

Barbour’s new Simplified KJV builds off the familiarity and trustworthiness of the King James Bible while removing the challenges of antiquated language and punctuation.

Keeping all the original translation work of the 1611 Bible, the Simplified KJV judiciously updates old styles that may lessen your reading pleasure and comprehension today:

*refreshing old verb forms (for example, art becomes are; gavest becomes gave)
*breaking up long sentences by changing colons and semicolons to periods
*adding paragraphing throughout
*inserting quotation marks into spoken language
*updating old forms of address (like thee, thou, and ye)
*replacing confusing older terms (such as wroth or divers) with contemporary words
*capitalizing divine pronouns for clarity

The Simplified KJV maintains the feel of the original King James while markedly increasing its readability, bringing the trustworthy old translation into the 21st century.
