Proven pedigree of the authorized version

Posted on: March 30, 2011

Introduction

From 1611 to 2011 many of us have had the priceless privilege of reading from the greatest ever book. First written in Hebrew and finally written in the English language the seventh purification (psalms 12 verses 6 & 7); we are speaking about The Authorised King James Version of the bible. This book effectively broke the strangle hold of the Vatican, releasing their octopus like grip over the English speaking world and brought the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ unto ordinary people that had come through some 1000 years of spiritual darkness and religious suppression otherwise known as the dark ages, presided over by Satan and His anti-Christian institution, The Roman catholic church and her allies. The protestant Reformation was built on the light they received at the arrival of this mighty book, commissioned by King James, into the English speaking world. Psalm 119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple. This book has a solid, unquestionable pedigree, reinforced soundly upon 400 years of withstanding attack after vicious attack from every quarter that the enemies of truth and righteousness have thrown our way. Starting mighty revivals in remote places that spread the wonderful gospel of Christ to other remote places worldwide where millions, including myself believed and saw the greatest miracle ever, the salvation of a lost sinner’s soul from an eternal hell.

Of course we should be aware that millions of saints have been slaughtered down through the ages, because they had placed their faith in the wonderful words of life contained within these pages and have miraculously been saved from the wrath to come by believing the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ which is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. Many of their stories can be found documented in “Fox book Of Martyrs”. I expect many more of us will be killed for the word of God sake as the heathen continue to rage, and the people imagine a vain thing. The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

There is no doubt what so ever that the evil one will continue in his tireless endeavour to replace this treasured book, God’s eternal word, within your hearts and your churches with one of his numerous copyrighted, subsidized perversions. Among the Sheep, for God does refers to us as sheep he being our shepherd, in Psalm 23, there are scattered many Goats, persons who would rather stand on their own individual pebble or favourite stone in the midst of the storm rather than the solid unmovable rock of the proven, preserved word of God and the enemy has been very happy to provide these little stones for them. Every new per-version, that is presented to us is accompanied by the outrageous claim that it is Just as good as or better than the storm tried, time tested, Holy Spirit powered Authorised version and many of you are so gullible like Mother Eve, you swallow his old lie; hook, line and sinker; yet we see the fruit of these perversions that are based on the carnal wisdom of corrupt man and the text of the revised version of 1881 that, incidentally, Thomas Nelson owns the copyright to. Churches worldwide are becoming increasingly tolerant of even the most outlandish sin while demonstrating increasing intolerance and disdain for the word and saints of God.

Matthew 6 verse 24 makes it clear that No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 400 years ago when the authorized version of the bible broke through the darkness and set freedom before us, we learned that Salvation was a gift of God to rotten helpless sinners like myself that was received by grace through faith. 270 years later the bride of Christ has been informed by the writers of the revised version that it is now and drawn out process dependent upon ones efforts and morality.

Our only offensive weapon

Armour

We are told in the book of Ephesians chapter 6 verses 11 to 18 to put on the whole armour of God, which by the way, is not a suggestion but an order, a command if you please, from our commander in chief the Lord Jesus Christ. Every piece of the armoury, as outlined by the writer of this epistle, is defensive except the sword, which is the eternal word of God. Let me show you why this sword is so frightening to Satan and why he has put out billions of dollars to have it counterfeited. It is frightening because it is Quick, which means it is alive and powerful and packs an almighty punch and it is sharper than any two edged sword. The Holy Spirit gives it an ultra sharp laser edge that Satan cannot withstand nor imitate in any of his well put together perversions. Not even his best imitation can compare. It pierces even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Satan has been seriously stabbed in his evil head by this ultra sharp two edged sword and he knows what critical damage it can do to him and his kingdom of darkness. Do you remember when Jesus, after forty days and forty nights of fasting and communion with God was tempted by Satan in the wilderness and Jesus used the sword of the word like the skilled warrior that he is when he simply said, ‘It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.’, piercing Satan to the core of his evil spirit. Shaken by this effective counter he shifted his attack and again got pierced by this Sword of the Lord in the hand of the master when Jesus again stabbed him with the Holy Spirit inspired, eternally preserved word of God: ‘It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord THY GOD.’ boy that must have been embarrassing; the execution was surgical and that strike was definitely precise and painful. In spite of the wounds that Satan was by this time carrying witnessed by the host of heaven, he attempted one final, desperate attack, hoping somehow for a better result this time and got slashed again right across his rotten head with the dismissive and belittling words ‘Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.’

Satan has never recovered from these fierce wounds and that is why he has expended so much effort through the ages in keeping this lethal weapon out of your hands and replacing it with one of his tame, useless imitations. It is so sad to see our young bright enthusiastic bible students returning from these bible colleges disarmed, doubt riddle and defiled by these ungodly so called bible teachers planted in religious institution all over the place which promotes the revised version over the authorised version. Proverbs 24 verse 21: My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change.

If you are perhaps thinking that only Jesus possess the skill and the power to use God’s word in such an effective way consider Deacon Stephen in the book of acts as he was confronted by that blood thirsty mob of adversaries lead by the clergy from the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia and Stephen took the scriptures and beginning from Geneses right through to Malachi he let them have it. He was not afraid to use the word nor was he apologetic for these men though occupying high religious positions were the enemies of truth as so many are today. It is written in the account that they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake. Wouldn’t you like to speak that way? You can, all you need to do is put away the counterfeits and get into the real Word of God and you can. Glory be to God.

Of course there is a price to pay as Stephen quickly found out because these people will not endure sound doctrine but will heap to themselves teachers having itching ears and they will turn on anyone that will dare make a stand for the truth. Stephen was accused of speaking blasphemous words against Moses, and against God: A crime punishable by death.

At his trial he used the word of God in such a mighty and irresistible way that it is written that when they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. But Steven, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, and he said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. This is something that they did not want to hear and so they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, (it is amazing how Satan’s crowd will unite under his banner against God’s people) and dragged him out of the city and they stoned Stephen, as he called upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.

At present, as you can see, Satan is going about this process of the replacement of the Authorized Version within the church, in the guise of an angel of light but the time will come when as a roaring Lion he will not only attempt remove any remaining fragments of this book that he despise and fear so much but with it, any saint that continue to cling to its irrefutable truths.

Amos 8:11 & 12 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.

But how is this process of replacing the word of God within the churches accomplished so successfully and so quickly? Through the subtle, systematic disarming of unsuspecting bible students that pass through bible colleges and subsequent rearming of them with one of the Devil’s new counterfeits and later infiltrating them back into defenseless churches like wolves among sheep or perhaps goats. While men slept, the parable states in Mathew chapter 13: 25 to 30, the enemy came and planted the tares among the wheat. Men of God have been sleeping just like Jonah did even in spite of the raging storm. Oh yes Jesus did sleep in a storm too didn’t he but when he awoke and spoke the word, that word had power over the raging storm. Does your word have power?

When we awake we could find that our sword, the eternal word of God, has been taken away from us and now, all that we have are useless counterfeit words of men, garden tools with which to fight the enemy. Many are now fighting a losing battle with the corrupt and impotent New King James Garden tool from Thomas ‘the enemy’ Nelson or the, just as powerless, New International per-version by the International Bible society of Satan.

Zechariah 13:7 to 9 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

False Accusations

The 1611 authorized version of the bible is often maligned and accused of having glaring errors by some of its detractors; however when cornered and put on the spot, we challenge them to point out these imaginary contradictions, they are unable to expose one of these so called errors. Most of them are just echoing statements heard from those in opposition to God’s word and thus are proven liars and false witnesses.

This faithful book is accused of being old fashioned, out-dated and irrelevant to life and the challenges that confronts the world in these modern days yet the only persons that are found to be equipped to handle the complexities of life effectively today, are those saints that have put their trust in the mighty God of this book.

Those Christian psychologists that have infiltrated the modern church quoting and teaching from the modern per-versions have found themselves presiding over a significant increase in family problems and marriage failure. Issues of immorality among their growing numbers are glaring and growing, accompanied by a rapid escalation of decay and uncertainty within church families that they are incompetent to stem with these powerless, corrupt copyrighted bibles which are based on the wisdom of corrupt man, the 1881 revised text; powered by the hiss of the serpent and the love of money.

Pedigree

Yes this mighty old book was first printed in 1611 and has gone through four major editions to correct spelling and printing errors but it has never been revised because the 1611 original text has been so, sound and trustworthy. In 1629 a careful correction of earlier printing errors was made and this was the first edition. The 1638 edition reinstated words and clauses overlooked by the 1611 printers and amended manifest errors. The Final two editions were only seven years apart (1762 and 1769) with the second one completing what the first had started: the standardization of the spelling.

Motive of the translators

The Authorised 1611 was published in order that the ordinary man, the butcher the baker the candle stick maker, would be able to have the scriptures at his disposal and thus no longer have to rely on the ungodly rulers of the Roman Catholic Church to tell him what sayeth their Lord. This effectively exposed the farce of the mass and the practise of confession to a priest, un-biblical practices that had been used for many centuries by the Vatican to enrich their organisation and enslave through ignorance, superstition and religion the masses of every nation through the mass, thereby keeping them under the control of the pontiff, their representative of the prince of darkness.

It was not motivated, as is the case of the modern per-versions, by the desire of the copyright owners to make money, but instead to make disciples of all nations.

The Greek text, Textus Receptus is based on the vast majority (90%) of the 5000+ Greek manuscripts still in existence. That is why it is also called the Majority Text.

Textus Receptus agrees with the earliest versions of the Bible: Peshitta (AD150) Old Latin Vulgate (AD157), the Italic Bible (AD157) etc. These Bibles were produced some 200 years before the minority Egyptian codices favoured by the Roman Church.

Textus Receptus agrees with the vast majority of the 86,000+ citations from scripture by the early church fathers.

Textus Receptus is untainted with Egyptian philosophy and unbelief.

Textus Receptus is not mutilated with deletions, additions and amendments, as is the Minority Text.

Textus Receptus strongly upholds the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith: the creation account in Genesis, the divinity of Jesus Christ, the virgin birth, the Saviour’s miracles, his bodily resurrection, his literal return, the cleansing power of his blood, the inspiration and the preservation of the scripture etc.!

Textus Receptus was – and still is – the enemy of the Roman Church. This is an important fact to bear in mind.

The Majority Text has been known throughout history by several names. It has been known as the Byzantine text, the Imperial Text, the Traditional Text and the Reformation Text as well as the Majority Text. This text culminates in the TEXTUS RECEPTUS or Received Text which is the basis for the King James authorized Bible, which we know also as the Authorized Version. We describe this text with the term "Universal," because it represents the majority of extant manuscripts which represent the original autographs.

the tree

The ability to differentiate between wheat and tares while they are in the process of growth by just observation must have been a virtually impossible task to the ordinary man according to the parable in Matthews 13 verses 24 to 30 however at harvest time the differences become very evident. Of course in order not to destroy the valuable wheat, the worthless tares were allowed to continue to grow as well. The new perversions of the scripture that have been planted among us by organisations like the Lochman foundation, Thomas Nelson, the International Bible Society and others are all the product of the same spirit of deceit and has flourish in this world because the enemy has planted them to conceal themselves alongside the proven word of God to delude those that know not and love not the truth. We saints however should not be so naive as to believe that everything that is accepted by the worldly within the church is acceptable.

Christianity, which is firmly founded on the undisputable bible teaching that Jesus Christ, the lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world was crucified on the Cross at Calvary at the insistence of some very influential Jewish Religious leaders, the Sanhedrin, by the hands of the Roman Government; died around 3 pm in the afternoon of the 14th day of Nisan (Hebrew)or Abib(Aramaic) the first month of the Jewish year on the preparation day( John 19:14 Now it was the Preparation Day of the Passover, and not as is assumed by most bible teachers as the preparation day for the weekly Sabbath); Christ’s body was then taken down from the cross and buried in the new tomb of Joseph of Arimathaea on Wednesday evening before sunset, at the dawning of the day of the Jewish Passover which began at sunset, spent three full days and three full nights in the heart of the earth and arose from the dead triumphantly at the end of the third day as was prophesied in the scriptures and as he was continually telling those with whom he spoke though they understood him not, even to this day. Remember the sign of Jonah, three days and three nights in the belly of the whale. The foundation and the resulting edifice of our faith is established firmly in opposition to every extant religion including that of Roman Catholism that has enjoyed far reaching influence on many aspects of what Christians have and do practice down through the years. Christian reality has nothing what so ever to do with the pagan observance of Easter, Good Friday or the ridiculous teaching of Christ rising after one night and two days as is popularly thought and believed today.

For the first three centuries of its existence, the roman rulers did everything imaginable to rid the world of this dynamic life changing faith by both persecuting and destroying all those saints that held to it and also by the systematic and ruthless eradication of all their holy writings.

Instead of hindering the growth of this faith all that their efforts did was fan the fire of resolve of the saints and encourage them to go out into all the world and spread this wonderful gospel of Christ where ever they were scattered.

Even within the very heart of the Roman nation the Christian faith was making a significant impact on social life; not only among the poor but also among those in high positions, exposing and displacing many of their heathen religious beliefs by displaying the life changing power of God that accompanies faith in our risen Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Due to the powerful testimony of these saints about Gods miraculous power of salvation many new saints were born into the Kingdom of God at Rome.

Christianity in Rome, however, encountered an old challenge which came in the form of the attempt by the leaders to accommodate some very ancient religious practices which were practiced by the Romans and had their appeal with many of those that came out of the Jewish culture for the adoption of heathen religions had been a thorn in the side of the Jewish nation for many Centuries. One of these was the worship of Ishtar the Queen of heaven. She was according to mythology the virgin mother/ lover/ temple prostitute of Tammuz the sun god who died and came back to life.

Jeremiah 7:18

The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.

Jeremiah 44: 18 to 25

But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine. And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?
Then Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the men, and to the women, and to all the people which had given him that answer, saying, The incense that ye burned in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, ye, and your fathers, your kings, and your princes, and the people of the land, did not the LORD remember them, and came it not into his mind? So that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which ye have committed; therefore is your land a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day. Because ye have burned incense, and because ye have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil is happened unto you, as at this day. Moreover Jeremiah said unto all the people, and to all the women, Hear the word of the LORD, all Judah that are in the land of Egypt: Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying; Ye and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her: ye will surely accomplish your vows, and surely perform your vows.

Revelation 2:13 – 15 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.

The Romans rulers and religious leaders, realizing that their best efforts to wipe out the Christian faith had proven futile and that under persecution, this faith carried an appeal to the ordinary man that they could not contend with, made a strategic change. The decision was made to make Christianity the religion of the state. In their acceptance of Christianity and in making it the religion of the Roman Empire they were then faced with another delicate problem. What will they do with the many other religious practices vying for a share in the market? The book on which the Christians based their faith was the ancient Hebrew scriptures, painstakingly hand copied letter for letter by the Aaronic priests for many centuries from other manuscripts and the Gospels and the epistles which were also carefully hand copied by Messirite scribes. Textus Vaticanus was the book that was used to seduce the Christians, fifty bibles hand written in Alexandria Egypt on calf and antelope skins replete with numerous minor changes, deletions and additions. This text was never accepted by the Greek Christians because of the number of errors, omissions, deletions, contradictions and additions plus it included a number of spurious books. What they did with Christianity was what Balaam did to cause the wrath of God to fall on Israel. They established teachings that polluted the Christian faith by infusing various aspects of the diverse religious practices across their Empire while maintaining Christianity as the central theme. They quietly introduced the worship of The Queen of Heaven subtly changing her name from ‘Ishtar’ to ‘the virgin Mary’ whom they made a perpetual virgin thereby pulling the wool over the eyes of large numbers of the religious but unlearned. They also systematically adapted bits of Judaism, Egyptian and eastern philosophy, pagan rituals and idol worship into the church thereby deceiving the unsuspecting world that this was Christianity.

In Christianity all saints are a royal priesthood having the Blood bought authority to go before the throne of grace with boldness and confidence in the name of Christ at all times, making their request known. The Roman Catholic Church countered this by introducing and enforcing the doctrine of the Nicolaitans: the separation and exaltation of the priesthood over the laity. The laity being dependent on the priesthood continuously for a various so called sacraments in order to be in good standing with the church and to escape out of a place they invented called purgatory. They thus wrested the blood bought power of the saints away from them by making them subject to the whims and fancies of the church leaders. A Roman Catholic Church made its members outcasts in the world in continuous need of and dependence on their priest to confess to; rather than as God has made us through his Son the Lord Jesus Christ, priest in search of the outcast of this world until he returns.

Men Love darkness rather than light

Rejecting the word of the Lord, weather due to pride, arrogance or fear of what the people will say or do is the worse sin that a leader, weather he be king or pastor, can be guilty of because the Lord will not tolerate any one that places, pride, popularity and pleasing the people above obeying his word. 1Samuel 15 verse 26: And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king over Israel.

How did it happen that the Minority Text supplanted the trustworthy and respected Textus Receptus which triggered the great Protestant Reformation during which tens of thousands of true believers perished by flame, famine and torture? Who is behind this dangerous deception that has engulfed the Christian Church? Do you know? Do you care? Is it important? Does it really matter?

The ‘Minority Texts’ are also known as the Alexandrian Texts because they were produced in Alexandria in Egypt. The Minority Texts were rejected by the early Christians and also by all the Protestant Reformers of the 16th and 17th centuries. The Reformers, who were well aware of the existence of the Minority Texts, considered them unfit for translation purposes. These are very important points to bear in mind. Why did the early Christians and the Protestant Reformers reject the Minority Texts?

The answer is:

The Minority Texts were the work of unbelieving Egyptian scribes who did not accept the Bible as the Word of God or Jesus Christ as the only begotten SON of GOD!

The Minority Texts abound with alterations, often a single manuscript being amended by several different scribes over a period of many years; something the Aaronic priests and Masorites Scribes would never have tolerated when making copies of the Scriptures.

The Minority Texts omit approximately 200 verses from the Scriptures. This is equivalent to 1st and 2nd Peter. Pause and consider that stunning fact!

The Minority Texts contradict themselves in hundreds of places.

The Minority Texts are doctrinally weak and often dangerously incorrect.

Yet virtually every modern English Bible relies on the Minority Text as its underlying New Testament text in preference to Textus Receptus!

Modern translations abound with misleading footnotes, which do little else but cast doubt on the King James Version. Examples are:

The Hebrew of this line is obscure.

The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain – or unknown.

Other ancient manuscripts add

Other ancient manuscripts omit

Other ancient manuscripts read

Other ancient manuscripts insert …

Some early manuscripts read…

The most ancient authorities omit John 7:53 – 8:11

The best manuscripts omit this verse. (e.g. Matt.17:21, 18:11, 23:14, Mark 7:16, John 5:4)

Some of the most ancient authorities bring the book (Mark) to a close at the end of Mark 16:8

Many manuscripts do not contain the remainder of this verse; example Acts 8:37

Many ancient authorities read…

Not found in most of the old manuscripts example John 7:53-8:11

Seems to me that this group of Scholars who did the revised version of 1881were a bunch of incompetent Quacks compared to the 1611 translators who never encountered any of these problems when they were translating from the received text.

Yet The King James Version of the bible is infinitely more accurate and reliable than ANY modern English translation on the market today. And that is why for 400 years it has had, and continues to have – the blessing of the Almighty God upon it and the ire of the enemies of truth: something no modern version or translation can come anywhere near. Most, after a decade or two, disappear from the book shops, only to re-appear some years later with a few alterations under a new name.

Market share

blac-money-scam

Success in today’s commercial, money centred world is measured, as the natural man is programmed in the modern learning institutions to do, in market share and financial returns. With the significant sums of money that is expended by those dark forces in high places to push the new international and the new King James versions of the bible, which by the way is translated from the 1881 revised text of Thomas Nelson, in their advertising campaigns the owners of the new International version of the bible have been able of late to boast of having a larger percentage of the market than any other version of the bible. However With the power of the Holy Spirit behind the 400 year old 1611 Authorized Version, despite its rejection by almost all the major bible colleges, leading church groups, modern media preachers and Christian psychologists etc.; and no advertising dollars to prop it up, is still the only potent, best loved, most trusted and most raged against book in the world today; Proof again of its unmatchable pedigree. One must either love it or hate it but it cannot be ignored. What a book!

You wrote such a long piece, I’ve selected only one small paragraph, which is reproduced below:

Here’s just ONE error: Matthew 6:13 ~ The words “For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever” are a marginal gloss, interpolated by some copyist, who had in mind words borrowed from the first-century Greek liturgy of the Catholic Church, taken from 1 Chronicles 29:11. Even the King James Version omits this gloss in Luke 11:4. The KJV translators put words into Christ’s mouth that He didn’t say, and Protestants have repeated the error since 1611.

The highly esteemed translators of the 1946/1952 Revised Standard Version, who were commissioned by the Church of England to make a translation to replace the KJV — which also had been commissioned by the head of the Church of England, the notorious homosexual King James I, in the seventeenth century — have this to say:

QUOTE

Yet the King James Version has grave defects. By the middle of the nineteenth century, the development of Biblical studies and the discovery of many manuscripts more ancient than those upon which the King James version was based, made it manifest that these defects are so many and so serious as to call for a revision of the English translation.

[. . .]

The King James Version of the New Testament was based upon a Greek text that was marred by mistakes, containing the accumulated errors of fourteen centuries of manuscript copying.

END QUOTE

Preface to the Revised Standard Version, p. xi, xiv.

would these text more ancient than the received Greek text from which the king James version of the bible been translated be the Alexandrina text and the Vatican text? The original translators rejected them for a reason. The both came from Egypt and were in Latin.
Have you ever wondered why no one says when they publish a new bible than the revised version. After 400 years people are still truing to be better than the KJV. Why? because the best is always the one that is compared to. The Authorized version is still the best and there is not even a close second.
