King James Bible 1611
|Beholde, the day of the Lord commeth, and thy spoile shall be diuided in the midst of thee.
|For I wil gather all nations against Ierusalem to battell, and the citie shall be taken, & the houses rifeled, and the women rauished, and halfe of the citie shall goe forth into captiuitie, and the residue of the people shal not be cut off from the citie.
|Then shall the Lord goe forth and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battel.
|And his feet shall stand in that day vpon the mount of Oliues, which is before Ierusalem on the East, and the mount of Oliues shall cleaue in the midst thereof toward the East, and toward the West, and there shall bee a very great valley, and halfe of the Mountaine shall remoue toward the North, and halfe of it toward the South.
|And ye shal flee to the valley of the mountaines: for the valley of the mountaines shal reach vnto Azal: yea, ye shall flee like as yee fled from before the earthquake in the dayes of Uzziah king of Iudah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the Saints with thee.
|And it shall come to passe in that day, that the light shall not be cleare, nor darke.
|But it shall be one day, which shalbe knowen to the Lord, not day nor night: but it shal come to passe that at euening time it shalbe light.
|And it shal be in that day, that liuing waters shall goe out from Ierusalem: halfe of them toward the former Sea, and halfe of them toward the hinder Sea: in Summer and in winter shall it be.
|And the Lord shall be King ouer all the earth: in that day shal there be one Lord, and his Name one.
|All the land shall be turned as a plaine from Geba to Rimmon, South of Ierusalem: and it shall be lifted vp and inhabited in her place: from Beniamins gate vnto the place of the first gate, vnto the corner gate, and from the towre of Hananiel vnto the Kings winepresses.
|And men shall dwell in it, and there shalbe no more vtter destruction: but Ierusalem shalbe safely inhabited.
|And this shall be the plague, wherewith the Lord will smite all the people, that haue fought against Ierusalem: their flesh shall consume away, while they stand vpon their feete, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
|And it shall come to passe in that day, that a great tumult from the Lord shalbe among them, and they shall lay holde euery one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise vp against the hand of his neighbour.
|And Iudah also shall fight at Ierusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, golde and siluer, and apparell in great abundance.
|And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camell, and of the asse, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.
|And it shall come to passe that euery one that is left of all the nations which came against Ierusalem, shall euen goe vp from yeere to yeere to worship the King the Lord of hostes, and to keepe the feast of Tabernacles.
|And it shall be, that who so will not come vp of all the families of the earth vnto Ierusalem, to worship the King the Lord of hostes, euen vpon them shall be no raine.
|And if the family of Egypt goe not vp, and come not, that haue no raine: there shall bee the plague wherewith the Lord will smite the heathen that come not vp to keepe the feast of Tabernacles.
|This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not vp to keepe the feast of Tabernacles.
|In that day shall there be vpon the bels of the horses, Holines Unto The Lord, and the pots in the Lords house shall bee like the bowles before the Altar.
|Yea, euery pot in Ierusalem and in Iudah shall bee Holinesse vnto the Lord of hostes, and all they that sacrifice, shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the Lord of hostes.
King James Bible 1611
The commissioning of the King James Bible took place at a conference at the Hampton Court Palace in London England in 1604. When King James came to the throne he wanted unity and stability in the church and state, but was well aware that the diversity of his constituents had to be considered. There were the Papists who longed for the English church to return to the Roman Catholic fold and the Latin Vulgate. There were Puritans, loyal to the crown but wanting even more distance from Rome. The Puritans used the Geneva Bible which contained footnotes that the king regarded as seditious. The Traditionalists made up of Bishops of the Anglican Church wanted to retain the Bishops Bible.
The king commissioned a new English translation to be made by over fifty scholars representing the Puritans and Traditionalists. They took into consideration: the Tyndale New Testament, the Matthews Bible, the Great Bible and the Geneva Bible. The great revision of the Bible had begun. From 1605 to 1606 the scholars engaged in private research. From 1607 to 1609 the work was assembled. In 1610 the work went to press, and in 1611 the first of the huge (16 inch tall) pulpit folios known today as "The 1611 King James Bible" came off the printing press.
