THE BEST THINGS HAVE INDEED BEEN CULMINATED
Zeal to promote the common good, whether it be by devising anything ourselves, or revising that which hath been laboured by others, deserveth certainly much respect and esteem, but yet findeth but cold entertainment in the world. It is welcomed with suspicion instead of love, and with emulation instead of thanks: and if there be any hole left for cavil to enter, (and cavil, if it do not find a hole, will make one) it is sure to be misconstrued, and in danger to be condemned. cavil: To find fault unnecessarily; raise trivial objections. (The American Heritage Dictionary @2000)
Thus reads the original Preface to an esteemed translation of the Holy Scriptures, known to hundreds of millions over the last 400 years, as the Authorized King James Version of the Holy Scriptures. Those translators knew that to translate the Holy Scriptures into English would likely subject them to apathy and harsh criticism. Now as we look into the past 400 years we can see that this English translation proved capable of shining a bright light directing people to seek their Creator. Although not the first rendering of the Word of God into the English language it has been so very long referred to as THE HOLY BIBLE that it has become regarded as one of the most trustworthy and influential translations of all times. It is widely recognized for standardizing the way English is written and also it had a profound way on how our words are pronounced. Prior to the printing press bookmaking was so very extraordinarily expensive no common man had one. With mass production of the Authorized King James version of the Bible still few people could afford to buy one and the printers nearly went into bankruptcy and to debtors' prison. The common man did consider the Bible in English such an important treasure that they bought it one page at a time. Considered by many to be the "providentially appointed Word of God" for the English speaking people of the world, it is loved and adored, and it still used throughout the world. Because the Authorized King James bible was used by so many to educate their children with spiritual values the words are buried deeply in English culture and deservedly or not it acts as a standard of trustworthiness by which other translations are judged.
As translators seek to show the merit their more educated translations by comparing their modern texts with the Authorized King James Version it has made this once proud translation seem old and almost useless. It is for this very reason that we have brought to you a new literary work to showcase the most important message found within the pages of the Bible. As bible translators have all had the opportunity to define what they consider the 'gold standard' for excellence in Bible translation the ordinary man may use this Divine Name King James Bible to distinguish the true merit of between any and all other translations in existence today. A bold statement for sure, but may we now introduce to you the new 'Old Man' from among all these translations who now can point out to us the most important of all truths that has been hidden in plain sight.
