Just how did we get our KJV Bible? In fact, many of us know very little about how we got the text of our Bible. What we know as the Old and New Testaments translated into English is the result of the detailed research and painstaking work that goes into making a Bible translation.
In the case of the KJV, the dedicatory is understandably written to “the most high and mighty” King James I, the regent who commissioned its publication. At a modest 1,000 words, it is straightforward and clear, heaping considerable praise upon King James as “King and Sovereign” of Great Britain.
