Dear DM,

Please visit,

Characteristics of the Authorized KJV Bible, 1769 Oxford edition

Different editions of the Bible have different spellings of persons' names,
therefore it was really important to determine which Bible to use as a basis
for generating the person name index used on this website.

The greatest help at this phase of the work was F.H.A. Scrivener's book "The
authorized edition of the English Bible (1611) Its Subsequent Reprints and
Modern Representatives", as it lists the characteristics of the main KJV

The KJV Bible that is used on this website was downloaded from the 
http://ota.ahds.ac.uk/ Oxford Text Archive  and then was compared to the
listings printed in the book above in order to determine which edition it
was. The answer was the 1769 Oxford edition.

The following is a list of verses, where you can find some of the
differences between the various editions. The person names are marked bold
to show which names would have been spelled differently on this website if
the Bible used here would not have been selected carefully.

Please note that while it is important to pinpoint these differences when
you use the Bible as a basis for a reference work, they do not alter the
original message of the Bible.
