Product Description

The Simplified KJV retains the King James Version translation context that has changed the world since 1611 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, 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.


  • Refreshing old verb forms (for example, art becomes are; gavest becomes gave)
  • Breaking up long sentences by changing colons and semicolons to periods
  • Adding paragraphing throughout
  • Inserting quotation marks into spoken language
  • Updating old forms of address (like thee, thou, and ye)
  • Replacing confusing older terms (such as wroth or divers) with contemporary words
  • Capitalizing divine pronouns for clarity

Publisher's Description

The King James Version of the Bible has stood the test of time.

Now it’s catching up with the times.
The Barbour Simplified KJV builds off the familiarity and trustworthiness of the King James Bible while removing the difficulties of antiquated language and punctuation.
Keeping all the original translation work of the 1611 Bible, this version carefully updates old styles that may interfere with your understanding today:
  • outdated verb styles are refreshed—for example, art becomes are; gavest becomes gave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
The Simplified KJV maintains the feel of the original King James while markedly increasing its readability, bringing the trustworthy old translation into the 21st century.
