The King James Version (KJV), commonly known as the Authorized Version (AV) or King James Bible (KJB), is an English translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England begun in 1604 and completed in 1611. First printed by the King's Printer Robert Barker, this was the third translation into English to be approved by the English Church authorities. The first was the Great Bible commissioned in the reign of King Henry VIII, and the second was the Bishops' Bible of 1568. In January 1604, King James I convened the Hampton Court Conference where a new English version was conceived in response to the perceived problems of the earlier translations as detected by the Puritans, a faction within the Church of England.
James gave the translators instructions intended to guarantee that the new version would conform to the ecclesiology and reflect the episcopal structure of the Church of England and its belief in an ordained clergy. The translation was done by 47 scholars, all of whom were members of the Church of England. In common with most other translations of the period, the New Testament was translated from Greek, the Old Testament was translated from Hebrew text, while the Apocrypha were translated from the Greek and Latin. In the Book of Common Prayer (1662), the text of the Authorized Version replaced the text of the Great Bible – for Epistle and Gospel readings – and as such was authorized by Act of Parliament. By the first half of the 18th century, the Authorized Version was effectively unchallenged as the English translation used in Anglican and Protestant churches. Over the course of the 18th century, the Authorized Version supplanted the Latin Vulgate as the standard version of scripture for English speaking scholars. Today, the most used edition of the King James Bible, and often identified as plainly the King James Version, especially in the United States, closely follows the standard text of 1769, edited by Benjamin Blayney at Oxford.

Wonderful apps!

I really enjoy this KJV Bible app and all of the Bible apps by this app builder that I have tried. I enjoy being able to just ‘flip’ the page to the next chapter, as well as the functional controls and offline use that they have, plus, the apps controls being pretty uniform from one to the next is nice as it makes it easier to learn to use them more efficiently. I really have no complaints about any of the several different bible versions I have downloaded from this app builder except that they are all suddenly freezing whenever I try to use them and, hopefully, it’s just a glitch in the programming that will be corrected quickly, otherwise, they are about perfect, for me and my preferences in operation...

Faithful Work

If you want a bible at your fingertips to grace your phone screen among all the other busy icons looking flashy and tempting to just touch and enter into their labyrinth of effects and time suction...get this. Tap it instead and enter a peaceful environment with slight elegant additions that speak of reverence and love for God.

Easy to use and access what you want to read on the go or make it a study to return to when it is silent and peaceful.

Thank you for developing this and offering it for us!

Serves my needed purpose

Wanted something for when traveling or rare occasions I forgot Bible at church. I decided to try it out first in church when I had my Bible..... I quickly learned that the pointer in circle at bottom right was to play audio of selected chapter, not to turn the page. On last day of +2 week trip and have found this app to serve great in daily Bible reading. Easy to navigate Books and Chapters
