Return & Cancellation Policies

Return Policy:

At TheKJVStore.com, we want to be sure that you are a satisfied customer. If we made a mistake on your order or if a defective or damaged product is received, we will replace your item immediately and pay for any applicable return shipping with no questions asked.

If for any reason you are not satisfied with the product you have received, you have Fourteen (14) days to contact us by phone or email to notify us of the return and to verify the correct Return Address. Returnable items still in new condition (excluding items with Name Imprinting or Custom Thumb-Indexing) are eligible for an exchange or refund (minus original shipping charges). The customer is responsible for all return shipping charges, but will receive a full 100% refund or exchange credit of the original purchase price of the item. It is recommended to return authorized items via a traceable method and to provide the tracking information to our customer service department. Refunds are typically processed within Five (5) business days of receipt on items received in new and satisfactory condition. Tracking information on returned shipments can expedite this process.

Please Note: Items returned a.) without proper notification to The KJV Store, b.) without an Authorization Code or Return Instructions, c.) to the wrong address, d.) Items marked as "Non-Returnable" or deemed Non-Returnable by The KJV Store Staff, or e.) not adhering to this return policy in any other way are not eligible for refund or exchange, and no refund or exchange will be issued on such returns. We greatly value your business and appreciate your understanding in regards to this policy. In short, if you experience a problem of any kind with your shipment or any item received, please notify us as quickly as possible so that we may provide you with excellent service and a speedy resolution.

Cancellation and Order Change Policy:

At The KJV Store, we are committed to extremely fast order processing and shipping times. For this reason, once an order has been placed and paid for with a credit/debit card or PayPal, the order cannot be cancelled or changed in any way.  We cannot make any exceptions to this policy as all orders are immediately processed by our fulfillment partners and cannot be cancelled or altered once submitted.  For this reason, we encourage customers to double check their orders for accuracy before completion.  This is especially important for orders with Imprinting or Indexing which is an irreversible process.  


Shipping Information (General)

The KJV Store uses multiple Shipping carriers that depend largely on where the order ships from. These freight carriers include but are not limited to UPS, FedEx, DHL, and USPS.  UPS is our preferred carrier for most shipments.  We offer shipping to virtually any destination worldwide including the Continental U.S. (including Hawaii and Alaska) all U.S. Territories (such as Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic) Canada, and most International Countries. The KJV Store reserves the right to refuse shipment to any location for any order or any customer deemed as potentially untrustworthy or fraudulent by our shipping department. In such instances, all payments will be voided or refunded at our discretion and no products will be shipped pending further investigation.

We do not require a signature at the time of delivery for most shipments. Our carriers are instructed to leave packages at a safe location on our customer's property such as the doorstep or porch. This aspect of the shipping process is ultimately controlled by each individual delivery person/package handler involved at the time of final delivery and ultimately cannot be controlled by our company.

Items shipping from our Primary Warehouses in TN and PA will usually ship the same business day if placed before 9:00 A.M. C.S.T.

APO/FPO Military Shipments

The KJV Store is honored to ship products to all military personnel serving our country abroad. Shipments to FPO and APO Military addresses are via USPS Mail with the choice of Media Mail or Priority Mail at checkout. UPS and FedEx do not deliver to APO/FPO addresses.  Customer should enter APO or FPO in the "City" field of their address and should select "Armed Forces Africa, Armed Forces Americas, Armed Forces Canada, Armed Forces Europe, Armed Forces Middle East, or Armed Forces Pacific" from the State/Province drop down menu. Shipments are only guaranteed to reach the destination entered at checkout. Responsibility for final delivery to the individual recipient rests with the particular military entity that handles each shipment, and not with The KJV Store. APO/FPO Delivery Time is not Guaranteed.

Inmate, Prison, and Correctional Facility Shipments 

The KJV Store is honored to ship products to all inmates, prisons, and correctional facilities on behalf of those individuals and their families. We have been successfully delivering packages to prisons since our inception. Most prisons do not accept packages from individuals, instead requiring that shipments be mailed directly from a bookstore or publisher. Shipments to inmates and prisons are via USPS Mail. Be sure to clearly indicate the inmate's DC Number in the "Last Name" field. Also, be sure to order a product that is acceptable according to the prison that is being shipped to. Many prisons will not accept hardcover books of any kind. Most Softcover, Paperback, and Flexible Leather products are acceptable. It is the customer's responsibility to know the individual prison's policy before ordering. The KJV Store cannot be held responsible for shipments that are refused by a prison due to factors beyond our control. Prison/Correctional Facility Delivery Time is not Guaranteed.


Payment Options

Please note that an up front payment is required by all customers before any products or orders can be shipped with no exceptions.  We do not offer COD payments or extend credit or billing accounts to any customer at this time.  This policy applies to all customers including Individuals, Churches and Ministries, as well as other bookstores and retailers. 

Payments can be made using Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, or PayPal. Alternatively, we offer eCheck Payments for Churches Only and only on Bogard Press Sunday School and Vacation Bible School materials.  For church customers who prefer to pay by check, they may order online using an "electronic check" by selecting the Bank Account (eCheck) payment method during checkout.  Bank Account / eCheck uses your regular checking account.  The eCheck must be in US dollars and from a US bank account.  Please be advised that all eCheck orders are only available to Church Customers ordering Bogard Press Sunday School and Vacation Bible School materials, and can be delayed up to 7 Business Days before shipment, depending on the funding time period and confirmation from your processing bank.  For immediate order processing and shipment, please order with a Debit/Credit Card or PayPal.  Orders can be placed by phone using a Credit Card or Bank Account (eCheck).  PayPal orders must be placed online.  

We no longer accept Checks or Money Orders by Mail.  Paying with a Debit/Credit Card or PayPal helps to protect both our customers and our company from fraud associated with bad checks/echeck payments, and eliminates manual order processing for both the customer and our staff.  Please be advised again that eCheck orders are only available to Church Customers ordering Bogard Press Sunday School and Vacation Bible School materials, and can be delayed up to 7 Business Days before shipment, depending on the funding time period and confirmation from your processing bank.  For immediate order processing and shipment, please order with a Debit/Credit Card or PayPal.

Address Verification Mismatch May Result in Orders Being Temporarily Held

We take credit card fraud and our customer's security very seriously.  The KJV Store performs Address Verification on all orders and credit card transactions with the assistance of Authorize.Net.  If the Billing or Shipping Address that you enter during checkout does not match the Billing Address on file with and as reported by your Credit Card Issuing Bank or the USPS, your order may be temporarily placed on hold.  We may attempt to contact you or your bank to verify additional information before processing such orders.  Any order placed with an incorrect billing or shipping address or otherwise deemed as potentially fraudulent for any reason may be held and reviewed for security reasons, including orders with expedited shipping.  

***There is no need to place an additional order.  You will be contacted by our staff when the order is approved.

The KJV Store is not responsible for incorrect information on file with a bank or for a bank's Address Verification System being unavailable at the time of an order, or any transaction that results in an Address Verification Mismatch.  To avoid the possibility of any order being held for review and therefore possibly delayed, be sure to enter the exact Billing Address that your Credit Card Issuing Bank has on file.  If you need to update your billing address with your bank, please do so by calling the phone number on the back of your credit or debit card.  Thank you for your understanding in this matter and for your assistance in helping us prevent online and credit card fraud.



Personalization / Name Imprinting and Custom Thumb-Indexing

Personalization / Name Imprinting is available on most Leather and some Hardcover bibles for $8.00 per line of text and up to 3 Lines of Text.  Font color will match the page edge color of the Bible (typically gold) and will be positioned at the bottom right of the front cover on most bibles. Certain specialty bibles may be imprinted differently at the imprinter's discretion, based on what they think will look best (such as bibles with a snap flap or an abnormal size).



The KJV Store recommends Script lettering for personalization.

Personalized Bibles are Non-Returnable:
Because Name Imprinting is an irreversible process, all personalized Bibles are not returnable unless defective in materials or workmanship.

Why can some Bibles not be personalized?:
At The KJV Store, a Bible will be marked as "no personalization available" for 1 of 2 reasons. First, the material that the Bible is made out of may not be imprintable, such as many hardcover and some imitation leather bibles. Second, many of our Leather Bible orders are fulfilled and shipped by shippers or suppliers that do not offer the Imprinting service, meaning that we cannot have such bibles delivered with the personalization already done. In such instances, many of those Bibles may be ordered and then imprinted by the customer at a local embroidery shop. If you have any questions about personalization on a specific product, please call us at 1-800-310-03271-800-310-0327 FREE.

About Personalization:

  • Personalization generally does not delay shipment. However, during seasons of heavy sales, it may require an additional day to leave our shipper's warehouses.
  • Personalized text is imprinted in either gold leaf or silver-colored foil. Colors are chosen to match the color of the Bible page edges or its overall color scheme at the discretion of the imprinter.
  • Personalization is generally located on the bottom right of the Bible cover. A few exceptions are made for Bibles with unique cover types, such as a Bible with a snap flap cover, in which we would imprint in the bottom center.
    The KJV Store is a Christian-owned company seeking to honor and glorify God. We reserve the right to refuse personalization of profane or blasphemous words, abbreviations and/or symbols that we consider to be inappropriate of Christian conduct. Orders of this nature will be cancelled at our discretion.


Special Characters:

ACCEPTABLE& ! – . ‘ ? , :
(ampersand, exclamation point, period, apostrophe, question mark, comma)
Including all letters from the Standard American English Alphabet (A-Z)

NOT ACCEPTABLE” / @ # $ % * < > + = [ ] { } ` ~ 
(quotation marks, slash, @ symbol, # sign, $ sign, asterisk, brackets, arrows, tilde, etc...)
We cannot imprint letters with special characters or markings above or below the lettering at all such as: è é ê ë ē ė ę.  
All such letters using international characters will be printed as the Standard American English Alphabet (I.E. "e" instead of è é ê ë ē ė ę.)


 

Thumb Indexing

Thumb index editions have semi-circular cuts made by hand in the outer margins of the pages. The abbreviated names of the books of the Bible are stamped on small tabs, which are firmly glued on to the first page of the individual books, to enable the reader to find the page quickly.  The KJV Store offers Custom Thumb-Indexing on most Non-Indexed bibles for $15.00.  

They typically look like this:

***Custom Thumb-Indexed Bibles are Non-Returnable.

Donations

We get a high volume of requests for donations and we understand that the need for KJV bibles and books is great. It is our company policy at this time to only donate through our own local church and ministries that we are directly involved with. This allows us to see how our donations are being used first hand. While we would like to be able to help everyone, we feel that this policy is biblical and keeps us from neglecting those in need in our own "backyard".

Some of the best deals and lowest prices on products can be found on our Case Specials page:

http://www.thekjvstore.com/kjv-bibles/case-specials.html


Family Fridays

At The KJV Store, Friday is Family Day. We believe in the importance of faith and family. We believe that it's our duty as Christians and as a Christian company to not only provide for our families (I Timothy 5:8), but also to cherish them as the gifts and heritage that God has generously given us (Psalms 127:3). We believe in the importance of our work (Proverbs 22:29), which is to spread the truth of the gospel by distributing King James Version Bibles and products, but we do not believe that we should have to sacrifice the one (family) for the other (work). As such, we have launched our "Family Fridays" initiative, and our offices will be closed on Fridays until further notice.

Rest assured that all Friday online orders will still be processed and shipped with normal delivery times by our distribution partners and that all customer service inquiries and requests will be promptly responded to when we return on Monday. And remember, our website, www.TheKJVStore.com, is always open. Please also be sure to use the correct Billing Address for any online credit card orders to avoid delays.

Thank you so much for your understanding and support of "Family Fridays" at The KJV Store, and we wish Christ's most bountiful blessings from our KJV-family to yours.

1 Timothy 5:8 - But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

Psalms 127:3 - Lo, children [are] an heritage of the LORD: [and] the fruit of the womb [is his] reward.

Proverbs 22:29 - Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean [men].

 


Out of Print and Used Items

We understand that it can be frustrating when an old bible has gone out of print.  Unfortunately when something goes out of print from a certain publisher, it  becomes virtually impossible to find a new copy.  As such, we do not deal in used or out of print bibles at this time.  Customers who are open to the idea of a used copy can try Google searching "out of print books", but results will vary as will the quality of used items available.  We are happy to try and help any customer find the next closest thing to their out of print item from our in print selection.


Bindings and Types of Leather

Hardcover (Text Book Style)

Features a protective covering of latex-wrapped paper.  The result is a stiff, durable and moisture-resistant cover.  Some editions have covers which are first printed with the book's title, other text and/or illustrations.  Then the cover is laminated to stiff cardboard.  These bibles are similar in style to a High School or College textbook. 

Imitation Leather, Leatherflex, Leatherette
(A Step Above Paperback or Softcover)
A paper-based product, coated and machine-grained to simulate the appearance of genuine leather.  It is inexpensive, tough, and easily cleaned while maintaining a strong resemblance to real leather.  Not as durable as bonded or genuine leather because it contains no real leather.

Bonded Leather (Contains Real Leather, just not 100% Leather)
Fibers, Strips, or pieces of genuine leather are bonded together with latex.  A coated shiny substance and a machine-grained finish give this durable material the look of genuine leather.  It may also be used over stiff or light, flexible boards.  More durable than Imitation Leather but not as good as genuine leather.

Genuine Leather (100% Natural Material, One Solid Flap)
Natural leather usually cut from pigskin (but sometimes also from cowhide), which has been especially selected tanned and grained for bookbinding.  Usually used over light, flexible boards.  Features one solid flap of 100% natural material instead of strips or pieces like in bonded leather.

Cowhide Leather
Natural leather cut from a cowhide, which has been especially selected tanned and grained for bookbinding.  Usually used over light, flexible boards.  Cowhide has a more refined texture and leather grain pattern.  Not as shiny as Pigskin Genuine Leather.  Features one solid flap of 100% natural material.

Morocco Leather
Morocco Leather is described as Calfskin Leather that has been “cut in half”.  So it is basically a Thinner version of Calfskin.  Cambridge Bibles is the main publisher that still uses Morocco or “French Morocco” leather for their bibles. 

Goatskin Leather
Genuine top-grain goatskin which has been carefully prepared for bookbinding in the classic grain for Bibles bound in goatskin.  Some flexible goatskin covers and few Morocco covers are lined-to-the-edge with bonded leather.  The result is a strong, beautiful and supple binding.  Cambridge Bibles is the main publisher that still uses Goatskin leather for their bibles.

Calfskin Leather
This supple, luxurious material comes from the hides of young cattle.  It is characterized by a distinctive grain and fiber structure.  It is long lasting and its suppleness increases with use.  Only the finest leather grains are used here.  Some calfskin leather bibles are lined-to-the-edge with genuine leather.  Calfskin is considered by many to be the best quality leather available for binding any bible.


Caring for Leather

Take Care in the Handling of your new Bible:


Gilt Edges
The gold on the edges of paper, gives a rich, attractive finish to the book, and helps to protect the pages. However, extreme care must be taken to protect the Bible from rain and snow, as the metallic foil may peel, or spot when exposed to moisture. You must also expect scratches to appear during the handling of your Bible. This is normal wear and tear.

Leather
Our genuine leather covers need very little care. Keep your Bible away from sources of extreme heat and from water. Use a slightly damp cloth to clean it but do not use any detergents or other cleaning products. The best preservative for leather bindings are the oils transferred from your hands. The more you handle the Bible, the more quickly it will become supple to the touch.

Paper
Because of the large number of pages, Bibles traditionally have been printed on thin paper. The wide variety of pens and markers available nowadays makes it impossible to say that notes written in the Bible will not smudge or bleed through. When using pens or markers, take care in your choice of writing implement and the pressure that you apply.

An excellent way to protect any bible is with one of our Bible Covers:

Antique Bibles and Appraisals

We do not offer appraisals of old or used bibles and really have no way of knowing what the value of most old bibles are worth.  We are also not interested in purchasing used or antique bibles at this time.

Study Bibles and Reference Bibles

What is the difference between a Study Bible and a Reference Bible?

A “Reference Bible” is a bible that in addition to the regular KJV text will be some kind of cross-reference system, usually appearing in a center-column or in the margins of the pages.  This reference system will help you find other verses that pertain to the same topic of the verse you are currently reading.  For instance, if you were reading Luke 2:4 in a reference bible, “And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem.”  The word “Bethlehem” would have a letter such as “a” or “b”, then in the column or margin where you see the “a” or “b” it will refer the reader to Micah 5:2, which is the verse in the Old Testament that prophesied how Christ would be born in Bethlehem. 

A “Study Bible” is a bible that has the regular KJV text plus almost always has a cross-reference system as well, such as the Scofield Study Bible.  But in addition to the cross-reference system (which is all a reference bible has) there will be other background information and commentary or notes about the Scripture.  This commentary usually comes from a Theologian or Bible Scholar.  With the Scofield Study Bible, Dr. C.I. Scofield is the “commentator”.  Study bibles are a great way to receive additional information and understanding about the Scripture that the reader otherwise might not have known or been able to find on their own.  Study bibles are great for new Christians who want a more in depth understanding of the Word of God.  It is important to know that we try not to recommend any study bible over the other, but to let the customer decide for themselves.  This is because we do not necessarily endorse ANY man’s commentary, but rather, we only endorse the actual Scripture text of the King James Bible itself.  All commentary should be read very carefully and critically.

***Note: Remember, Study Bibles usually contain References too so with a study bible you get both a reference bible and study bible in one.

Scofield Bibles

What is the difference between the Old Scofield Standard Edition and the Old Scofield Classic Edition?

The 2 major differences are the physical size or dimensions and the style or font of the letters that are used in these bibles.  The Standard edition is the bigger of the two, measuring 6-1/2 x 9” and user a newer, more modern style of print with Taller letters.  The Classic edition is a smaller sized bible 5-3/4 x 8-3/4” and uses an older style font with Wider letters much like the Old Reference bibles of the 60’s and 70’s.  The text, references, and notes of these 2 bibles and any “Old Scofield Bible” is exactly the same.  They will even appear at the same places on the page no matter which one you get. 

Do you have any Old Scofield bibles in a Lambskin or Calfskin Leather?

Yes! We now feature a Lambskin Leather and a Calfskin Leather Edition.

What is the difference between any Old Scofield bible and the Scofield III?

The Old Scofield bible features Scofield’s original 1917 notes almost verbatim.  They use a Center-Column Reference system and the notes always appear at the bottom of the page. 

The Scofield III or Third Edition has these same original notes as well as other supplemental material.  Instead of in a center-column, the cross references appear in the margin of the pages.  And instead of only having notes at the bottom of the page, the Scofield III has notes in many different places, including strategically placed charts and other special sections throughout the text.  It basically says the same thing and has the same info as the Old Scofield, only it arranges this information in a more strategic and user-friendly fashion. 

If you visit the Scofield III page and click on the “Look Inside” images, you can see 3 page samples that show some of these unique features.  The same thing can be done with any Old Scofield bible as well. 

Do you have a Scofield Wide Margin Edition?

Yes!  The Scofield Wide Margin Edition is available once more after being out of print for several years.

Do you have a Scofield GIANT Print edition?

No.  The Largest Print Scofield bible available is the Old Scofield Large Print Edition which has a size 10 font.  Giant Print does not really start until size 12 or bigger, and currently nothing like this has been published in a Scofield to our knowledge.

Does the Scofield III Bible come in Large Print?

No.  The Scofield III is currently only available in the standard print from Oxford.


1611 KJV vs. "Regular" KJV

Any customer seeking information about 1611 King James Bibles should first visit our "1611 Bibles" page:
http://www.thekjvstore.com/kjv-bibles/1611-editions.html  

Out of the thousands of KJV Bibles that we sell, items on this page are the only true 1611 Facsimiles or Reprints, meaning that they maintain the ORIGINAL spellings, capitalization, and Apocrypha books, as they first appeared 400 years ago in the year 1611.  The "Look Inside" examples of these products, especially for the Facsimile editions, will help anyone get a better grasp on what the 1611 KJV actually looked like. 

A common question that we see at The KJV Store is, "what is the difference between the 1611 KJV and the regular KJV bibles we use today?"

1.) The original 1611 spellings are very different from the KJV Bible we use today (typically the 1762 Cambridge Text). There were a lot of "e"s added onto the end of words and a lot of other unusual spellings of words. Perhaps the most infamous example is that of the letter "J".  The letter "J" did not start appearing in the Authorized (King James Version) Bible until the 1700's. So the very name of Jesus in the original 1611 Edition KJV Bible is spelled "Iesus".  If you have a KJV Bible that spells Jesus with a "J" then you do not have an original 1611 edition.

2.) The original 1611 contained the "Apocrypha", 14 additional books that were included in between the Old & New Testaments.  It is the opinion of most evangelical scholars and Christians that the 1611 translators did not count these books as "Scripture" but nevertheless, they did appear in the original 1611 KJV.  There is much speculation in history regarding the reasoning for including the Apocrypha in the Authorized (King James Version) Bible.  This could be partly contributed to the fact that English bibles previous to the Authorized King James Version, including the Wycliffe, Tyndale, Coverdale, Geneva, and Bishops, all included the Apocrypha as well.

3.) The original 1611 contains the "Preface to the Readers" which is a letter from the 1611 translators to the reader that's about 15 pages long explaining what they hoped to accomplish in their work.

Other than those 3 things, the KJV Bibles we use today are still basically the same bible. If you read a 1611 Edition aloud and follow along with any KJV bibles printed in the last 100 years, the words will be the same and they will sound the same 99.9% of the time.

As to the other .1%, Here is a list of significant changes (i.e., changes which affect meaning) made to the KJV text since 1611.

The 1611 reading is first, followed by the 1762 Cambridge.

  • 1 Corinthians 12:28 – “helpes in gouernmets” vs. “helps, governments”
  • Joshua 3:11 – “Arke of the Couenant, euen the Lord” vs. “ark of the covenant of the Lord”
  • 2 Kings 11:10 – “in the Temple” vs. “in the temple of the LORD”
  • Isaiah 49:13 – “for God” vs. “for the LORD”
  • Jeremiah 31:14 – “with goodnesse” vs. “with my goodness”
  • Jeremiah 51:30 – “burnt their dwelling places” vs. “burned her dwellingplaces”
  • Ezekiel 6:8 – “that he may” vs. “that ye may”
  • Ezekiel 24:5 – “let him seethe” vs. “let them seethe”
  • Ezekiel 24:7 – “powred it vpon the ground” vs. “poured it not upon the ground”
  • Ezekiel 48:8 – “which they shall” vs. “which ye shall”
  • Daniel 3:15 – “a fierie furnace” vs. “a burning fiery furnace”
  • Matthew 14:9 – “the othes sake” vs. “the oath’s sake”
  • 1 Corinthians 15:6 – “And that” vs. “After that”
  • 1 John 5:12 – “the Sonne, hath” vs. “the Son of God hath”

Additionally, there are 2 primarily accepted versions of the KJV in use:
the Oxford 1769 (Blayney) and the Cambridge 1762 (Paris) editions.

Here are a couple of Cambridge passages vs. their Oxford counterparts:

  • Jeremiah 34:16 – “whom ye had set” vs. “whom he had set”
  • 2 Timothy 2:2 – “heard from me” vs. “heard of me”

For additional inormation and perhaps the best and most concise explanation of the history of the 1611 Authorized or King James Version, read:
PREFACE TO THE KING JAMES VERSION 1873 EDITION 

In light of this information, we believe that ALL of the King James Bibles that we sell are "true" King James Bibles.  We do not sell the New King James Version, KJV Easy Reader version, KJV 21st Century Version, or any other adaptation of the KJV. We only knowingly sell faithful reproductions of the Cambridge and Oxford KJV text as well as the 1611 KJV Facsimiles and Reprints referenced above.


"Authorized" King James Version?

Perhaps the best and most concise explanation of the history of the 1611 Authorized or King James Version can be found in this article by JOHN R. KOHLENBERGER III:
PREFACE TO THE KING JAMES VERSION 1873 EDITION

Notice that the article specifically mentions "Authorized Version OR King James Version (KJV)"?

When it comes to customers using the term "Authorized", we typically know what they mean. They are most likely saying "are there any changes to the text of this King James Bible" such as spellings, etc...

Yes, there are apparently some KJV Bibles that use "Americanized" spellings on some words. The examples listed are that "Musick is now Music" and "Saviour is now Savior", "Asswaged" is now "Assuaged".  In most examples, the actual words themselves in meaning are not changed. If we were to do a spell check of the original KJV word "asswaged" in a Microsoft Word document, the suggested spelling will be "assuaged".

Our question to those concerned is, what is the difference in this spelling change and the spelling changes that were made from 1611 to 1762 to 1769 to 1873? We don't spell the name of "Jesus" as "Iesus" any more, but we have never heard a complaint from anyone that says, "If it doesn't spell the name "Jesus" as "Iesus" then it's not a true KJV bible".  We have a hard time making such a claim either on a change as simple as "Musick" to "Music" or "Neesed" to "Sneezed".  

The main thing we want all customers to understand is that it's not as if there is a specific KJV translation out there that is called "Authorized". When a publisher produces a "King James Version Bible" they don't call it "Authorized" or "Not Authorized". They don't put that on the outside of the box, or on the copyright page, or in the listed attributes or features.  If they do use the term "Authorized King James Version", they are simply wrong and are using an inaccurate title.  

The "Authorized Version" is actually and technically only the historically accurate name of the "King James Version" as we call it today. The actual name is the "AV" or "Authorized Version", which is what it was named in 1611. But because of King James I of England's reign and involvement in spearheading the translation work at Hampton Court in 1603, the Authorized Version became commonly known as the King James Version or KJV. It is common for many customers to use the term "Authorized King James Version" and you may have even seen or owned a bible that said "Authorized King James Version" on the copyright or title page, however this is an inaccurate title or usage!  "Authorized King James Version" is not a historically accurate statement and is often misused and implied with an incorrect meaning.  Whether someone says "Authorized" or not, or whether a bible says "Authorized King James Version" vs. just "King James Version", the King James Version is still the King James Version.  Use of the term "Authorized King James Version" in a bible does not make it any more authorized than the regular King James Version or a KJV with the absence of the word "Authorized" on the copyright or title page.  And even if a publisher produces a KJV that has a word or spelling or capitalization change that may be undesirable, they still do not actually call it "authorized" or "not authorized" or make any such distinction to us as a Retailer or our customers as consumers.  This is the reality that we face as "The KJV Store" where we do sincerely care about the accuracy of the King James Version (or Authorized Version) text that our King James Version Bibles use. 

For concerned customers, we recommend anything by The KJV Store & LCBP, Common Man's Reference Bible, Trinitarian Bible Society, or Cambridge.  To our knowledge, these publishers use the 1873 Cambridge text as explained in the "Preface to the King James Version of 1873" by John R. Kohlenberger III above, which is guaranteed to be the most accurate.

Pure Cambridge Edition

All of our KJV Bibles use the Cambridge text to our knowledge except for those published by Oxford University Press or R.L. Allan which use the Oxford text.

The "Pure Cambridge Edition" text is an out-of-print Cambridge text from the early 1900's. It is considered by some to be superior to other Cambridge texts, however, we do not agree with this claim.

Specifically, the PCE uses a lowercase "s" in I John 5:8:

"And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one."

The original 1611 Text also capitalizes the "S" in Spirit:
"And there are three that beare witnesse in earth, the Spirit, and the Water, and the Blood, and these three agree in one. 

We believe that the "S" in Spirit should absolutely be capitalized as it is referring to the deity of the Holy Spirit in this all important verse that supports the doctrine of the Trinity. This is supported by the context of I John 5:6:

“"This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth."

The PCE also uses a lowercase "s" in Acts 11:28:

"And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar."

We believe that the "S" in Spirit should be capitalized here as well as it is also referring to the Spirit of God based on simple and logical interpretation.

For this reason, we do not sell or support the Pure Cambridge Edition text. Research will also show that this edition is currently out of print with no real availability to our knowledge. We believe that the Cambridge text used in our KJV bibles is superior to the PCE.

Perhaps the best and most concise explanation of the history of the 1611 Authorized or King James Version, as well as why The KJV Store advocates the 1873 Cambridge Text over the supposed "Pure Cambridge Edition" Text can be found in this article by JOHN R. KOHLENBERGER III: 
PREFACE TO THE KING JAMES VERSION 1873 EDITION

For concerned customers, we recommend anything by The KJV Store & LCBP, Common Man's Reference Bible, Trinitarian Bible Society, or Cambridge.  To our knowledge, these publishers use the Cambridge text which is guaranteed to be the most accurate.

Apocrypha

The Apocrypha was a part of the original King James Version Bible printed in 1611. Many KJV Bible readers are not aware of this fact. This is a part of all of the 1611 Bibles that we sell on this page:http://www.thekjvstore.com/kjv-bibles/1611-editions.html 

Most scholars and evangelical Christians do not believe that the Apocrypha is "Scripture" or that it has the same level of inspiration as the regular 66 books.  This does not mean that it is then inherently wrong to read the apocryphal books though or be familiar with their text.

The word Apocrypha simply translated means "Hidden".  This alludes to the fact that the Apocrypha has unknown authorship and not generally considered as Scripture. The Apocryphal books appear in the original 1611 KJV in between the old and new testaments.  Some scholars believe that even in the year 1611, the KJV translators did not claim or count these extra 14 books as "Scripture". If you look at our original 1611 facsimile's and reprints, you'll see that these books are even categorized differently. In the regular 66 canonized books, at the top right and left of the page, you will see the Verse Reference (such as John 1:2). But in the Apocrypha section, you only see the word "Apocrypha".

The Apocrypha should be viewed as an extra referatory material, and nothing else. It's comparable to the maps and concordance that you might find in a modern day bible. These books are not Scripture, and were never categorized as such in the KJV. As to their inclusion in the original printing, this may have very well been due to some outside pressure or influence on the original translators, but this is only speculation as we have never seen proof one way or the other.  This could be partly contributed to the fact that English bibles previous to the Authorized King James Version, including the Wycliffe, Tyndale, Coverdale, Geneva, and Bishops, all included the Apocrypha as well.  In 1769 by Oxford University Press (Dr. Benjamin Blayney), and 1762 by Cambridge University Press (Dr. F.S. Paris), the KJV was updated in that Spellings were modernized and made uniform throughout the bible.  The Apocrypha was not removed from the King James Bible until roughly 1885 A.D. in the Cambridge Paragraph Bible. Hence the Apocrypha is typically no longer in the KJV Bible today unless it's a 1611 Facsimile or Reprint.

The Apocrypha does still appear in the Douay-Rheims translation of the bible which is the Catholic church's attempt at an English bible. But this bible was translated strictly from the Latin Vulgate in the year 1589, without consulting any Greek or Hebrew. This same Roman Catholic bible still contains the Apocrypha and has it categorized as Scripture. Obviously we do not agree with this and we do not sell any Catholic items or bibles on our website.

The bottom-line is that the Apocrypha, if read openly and honestly, has some interesting and historically valuable information. But in our opinion, it does not have the same strong thread of the Gospel message as the other 66 books of the actual bible.  Martin Luther said, "Apocrypha--that is, books which are not regarded as equal to the holy Scriptures, and yet are profitable and good to read." (King James Version Defended page 98.)

Spanish Bibles

Are Your Spanish Bibles King James Version?

A Word about our Spanish Bibles:
A common question that many customers ask is “are your Spanish bibles King James Version?” The technical answer to this question is “No”. The next question should be, “How can a ‘KJV’ Store sell something that is not KJV?” The reason simply stated is that the King James Version of the bible does not exist in any other language in the world besides English. In other words, there is no such thing as a “Spanish KJV Bible”. The King James Bible itself was translated out of the desire for English speaking people to have an accurate copy of the Word of God in their own language. By the same token, we feel it is important to make the Word of God available in every language of the world. When considering non-English bibles such as Spanish, French, Italian, German, etc.., we try to offer the most trusted and most accurate translation that is available in that specific language.

An increasingly debated topic in English-speaking KJV Bible-believing circles revolves around which Spanish translation is the most comparable to the English KJV text. For Spanish bibles, we have chosen to sell different variations of what is called the “Reina-Valera” Spanish translation (pronounced “RAYNA-VALERA”).

The RVR 1960 (Reina-Valera Revision of 1960) has been the most used and most trusted bible for Conservative Spanish Christians and churches in the U.S. and abroad for over 50 years. Since our company is English speaking, we have found it necessary to depend on information and opinions of KJV Bible-Believing missionaries and pastors in Latin America, Mexico, and Spanish speaking regions of the U.S. who have a better understanding of Spanish bibles and the Spanish language in general. Virtually all of the pastors and workers that we have consulted who only use the KJV in English have also only used the RVR 1960 bible in their Spanish ministries for the past 50 years. For this reason combined with the fact that the 1960 translation is the most readily available for distribution by the CBA Publishers and Vendors in the U.S., we offer the RVR 1960 Spanish bible to our customers. We also feature a handful of 1909 editions for those that prefer it, in spite of any linguistic and grammatical issues considered to be present in its text.


However, in light of new information revealed to our company in the past few years, and the emergence of two new Spanish Translations, we now offer the Reina Valera Gomez 2010 as an alternative and in addition to the RVR 1960 & 1909.  We have also previously offered the Valera 1865 Spanish bible as well, but have discontinued the sale of this bible due to logistical concerns with that publisher. 

The Reina Valera-Gomez (RVG 2010) is a Spanish Bible that reads like the English King James Version. The RVG Spanish Bible has been translated using the Hebrew Masoretic text, the Greek Textus Receptus, and the King James Version with collaboration from a great host of Spanish speaking pastors from seven different countries. This definitive translation retains both the beauty of the Spanish language and the accuracy of the English King James Version. We are pleased to now offer the Reina Valera Gomez bible that has been called "The most accurate Spanish bible available" by such organizations as Chick Publications and The Bible For Today/Dean Burgon Society. It is worth noting that all Spanish Tracts produced by Chick Publications that once quoted the RVR 1960 are now being produced with the RVG 2010. For this reason, we now make the RVG 2010 an available Spanish bible option for our customers.

Verse Comparisons of the Reina-Valera Bibles:
The following is an excerpt from an eight page, 220 verse comparison of eight different Spanish New Testaments by Rex Cobb, director of the Baptist Bible Translators Institute.

This study consists of verses in the New Testament where one or several of the versions of the Reina Valera deviate from the Textus Receptus. This study does not include the Revisions of 1977 or 1995, which have many corruptions (the 1977 more than the 1995). If you are trying to decide which Spanish bible is the best, and if your criteria is faithfulness to the Textus Receptus, this study may be of help to you.

Date: New Testament:
1569 Casiodoro de Reina
1602 Revisión por Cipriano de Valera
1862 Reina Valera (Revisión de Lorenzo Lucera Pedrosa)

Conclusion
There may be more passages that have not been found yet, but until now this list contains 220 verses where there are discrepancies between the Greek Text “Textus Receptus” and some various editions of the Reina Valera New Testaments. According to these findings, the RVG 2010 has no variations, omissions, or alterations from the Greek Text.

Foreign Language Bibles

Are Your Foreign Language (Non-English) Bibles King James Version?

A Word about our Foreign Language Bibles:

A common question that many customers ask us is “are your Foreign Language (non-English) bibles King James Version?” The technical answer to this question is “No”. The next question should be, “How can a ‘KJV’ Store sell something that is not KJV?” The reason simply stated is that the King James Version of the bible does not exist in any other language in the world besides English. In other words, there is no such thing as a “Spanish, French, or Italian KJV Bible”. The King James Bible itself was translated out of the desire for English speaking people to have an accurate copy of the Word of God in their own language. By the same token, we feel it is important to make the Word of God available in every language of the world. When considering non-English bibles such as Spanish, French, Italian, German, etc.., we are forced to try and offer the most trusted and most accurate translation that is available in that specific language. In many instances for many languages, there is only 1 translation available. We unfortunately do not have the resources at our disposal, or the required knowledge of any such foreign languages to accurately research their sources or underlying texts. We choose to offer whatever is available to us as a retailer under the premise that, "A bible is better than NO bible." We appreciate your understanding in this matter, and hope that our selection of Foreign Language bibles will be helpful.

 


"Custom" Bibles

At this time, it is not possible for our company to produce a “custom” bible for anyone. Especially not a single copy or small quantity. Virtually all of the KJV Bibles that you see available at The KJV Store were produced by the thousands. Most publishers print a minimum of 5,000 – 10,000 book blocks (the printed pages of the bible) at a time in order to reduce the enormous cost of printing. This mostly has to do with the setup time required in printing and that it can take as much time to setup and print a single copy as it can to print 100,000 of the same title.

By printing in bulk, publisher’s are able to reduce their cost per printed item and therefore make these titles available at a much lower cost to the consumer. We do our best to offer the largest selection of King James Version Bibles anywhere in the world, but we are still limited to what is readily available from the publishers and suppliers that we work with in the Christian Retail industry. Unfortunately, we are not aware of any such publisher or printer that can accommodate a “custom” KJV Bible request at this time.
