King James Bible, 1631 edition - One Word Makes a World of Difference
In the 1631 edition printing of the King James Bible, in Exodus 20:14, a very small word was forgotten by the printers. The word "not". This changed the 7th commandment to say Thou shalt commit adultery! Aaack! I guess that's what the church thought too, because the printers were fined 300 pounds. (a lifetimes wages in those days) Most of the copies were recalled immediately. Only 11 are left today. The few copies that are left are sometimes referred to as "The Wicked Bible". If you want to see the museum's web site, go to www.showtown.net/bible/current.htm
If you just want to see the picture of the "Wicked Bible", go to www.flash.net/~bibleetc/wicked.jpg
Well, it might be hard to see this for yourself, because there are only 11 copies in existence. There is a Bible museum in Branson, Missouri that has it.
