Product Description

The SKJV Barbour Bible, Teen Girls Edition brings God's Word with the Simplified King James Version translation into the world of teens. This Bible has features designed to capture the attention of teen girls every day of the year and speak specifically to them. The biblical text itself is in the highly engaging Simplified King James Version translation, which provides the biblical stories with the classical feel of the literature that is based on the KJV when it first emerged in 1611.

The Simplified KJV retains the KJV translation context but has updated words and grammar of the translation that are no longer in use in the English language. God's Word should be available to anyone who is able to read it, especially teens, and this Bible acknowledges that the English language has left certain words and grammar in the 17th century and now removes stumbling blocks of understanding to a contemporary audience while maintaining the venerability and historicity of the KJV.

How the SKJV differs from the KJV:

  • outdated verb styles are refreshed - for example, art becomes are; gavest becomes gave
  • old forms of address - like thee, thou, and ye - are updated
  • confusing older terms - such as wroth or divers - are modernized
  • pronouns for God - He, His, Him, You, Yours, Me, My - are capitalized for clarity
  • quotation marks are included with spoken language
  • long sentences are shortened with modern punctuation
  • paragraphs are added throughout
