TO THE READER. (See attached copy). It reads:
"AS the DEDICATION of the English translation of the BIBLE to king James the first of England seems to be wholly unnecessary for the purposes of edification, and perhaps on some accounts improper to be continued in an American edition, the Editors have substituted a short account of the translations of the Old and New Testaments from the original Hebrew and Greek in which they were written.
To the Jews was first committed the care of the sacred Writings, and for many ages they were in a manner confined to that chosen people. There was then no need of translation into other languages; yet was the providence of God particularly manifest in their preservation and purity. The Jews were so faithful to their important trust, that, when copies of the law or prophets were transcribed, they observed the most scrupulous exactness: they not only diligently compared the one with the other, but even counted the number of letters in each book, and compared and recorded the numbers.
The first translations that were made of the Old Testament were after the Babylonish captivity. They are called the Targums, which word in the Chaldean language signifies Translations. They are also called the Chaldee Paraphrases; some of them are exact translations of different parts of Scripture; others are properly paraphrases, containing enlargement, explanations, and even additions. Several of them are yet extant, and they are often mentioned by the ancient fathers of the Christian Church. Some have affirmed that the five books of Moses and that of Joshua were translated into Greek before the days of Alexander the Great. But the most remarkable translation of the Old Testament into Greek is called the Septuagint, which, if the opinion of some eminent writers is to be credited, was made in the reign of Ptolemy Philadelphus, about 260 years before the Christian era. At any rate it is undoubtedly the most ancient that is now extant, and on many accounts deserving notice, though not to be put on a level with the Hebrew text, as has been sometimes done.
This New Testament was originally written in Greek; and no sooner was the gospel spread through the nations than it was found necessary to translate the inspired Writings for each into its proper tongue. Some translations of the Old Testament, different from the Septuagint, were made into Greek from the year of Christ's birth 128 to 200. It is generally believed that the church of Antioch was favoured with a Syrian translation of the Bible as early as the year 100. The Ethiopians of Abyssinia have a version of the Bible, which they ascribe to Frumentius. of the fourth century. Chrysostom, who lived in the end of the fourth and Theodoret, who lived in the middle of the fifth century, both inform us that they had the Syrian, Indian, Persian, Armenian, Ethiopic, and Scythian versions. The ancient Egyptians had the Scripture translated into their language. The Georgians have a version in their ancient language. The most ancient German translation is supposed to have been made by Ulphilas, A.D. 360. The Old Testament of all these translations, except the Syrian, is taken from the Septuagint, and not immediately from the Hebrew text.
We will now give account of the translations of the Bible into the English language. There have been some who have affirmed that Adelme, Bishop of Sherburn, who lived in the beginning of the eighth century, translated the Psalms into the Saxon tongue. That however is uncertain, as some of the best historians make no mention of it; yet it is possible, as he was a man of great parts, and of great learning for those times, and said to be the first Englishman who wrote in the Latin language. About the time, or a little after, Bede, commonly called the venerable Bede, translated some parts of the New Testament, some say the whole Bible, but that is not probable. Near 200 years later, king Alfred translated the Psalms into the same language. In 1382 Wickliff finished his translation of the Bible, which is yet extant; that is to say, there are copies of it in some public and private libraries. All these translations were made from the Vulgate. In the reign of Henry the eighth, several editions of the Old and New Testaments were published in English; one of the most remarkable is that of William Tyndal in 1530. The translation of the New Testament was made from the original Greek, but probably the Old Testament either from the Latin of the Vulgate, or the Greek of the Septuagint. This was soon followed by the improvements of Coverdale and Matthew. By order of the king, Tonstal, Bishop of Durham, and Heath, Bishop of Rochester, made a new translation, which was published in 1541; but, not pleasing Henry, it was suppressed by authority. In the reign of king Edward the sixth, another translation was made: two editions of which were published, one in 1549, and the other in 1551. In the reign of queen Elizabeth another translation was made, which, being revised by some of the most learned of the Bishops, went by the name of the Bishop's Bible. This professed to be translated from the Hebrew of the Old Testament, and the Greek of the New, though in some instances, when there was a difference, it preferred the Septuagint to the Hebrew.
This last circumstance, with some others, induced king James to first select fifty-four persons, eminent in learning, and particularly well acquainted with the original language in which the Old and New Testaments were written, to make a new translation of the whole Bible. In the year 1607, forty-seven of those persons, the other seven probably having died assembled together, and arranged themselves into committees. to each of which a portion was given to translate. They were favoured not only with the best translations, but with the most accurate copies, and the various readings of the original text. After about three years assiduous labour, they severaly completed the parts assigned them. They then met together, and while one read the translation newly formed, the rest had each a copy of the original text in his hand, or some one of the ancient versions, and when any difficulty occurred they stopped, till by common consultation it was determined what was most agreeable to the inspired Original. This translation was first published A.D. 1610, and is the one which has been ever since that time printed by public authority, and generally used in the British dominions. It may be added with safety, that it has been generally approved by men of learning and piety of all denominations, of which its having never been superseded by any other, for one hundred and eighty years, is a sufficient proof.
The publisher has only further to add, that he has made the following impression from the Oxford edition of 1784 by Jackson and Hamilton - and has been particularly attentive in the revisal and correction of the proof sheets with the Cambridge edition of 1668 by John Field - with the Edinburgh edition of 1775 by Kincaid, and, in all variations with the London edition of 1772 by Eyre and Strahan - that where there was any difference in words, or in the omission or addition of words, among these, he followed that which appeared to be most agreeable to the Hebrew of Arias Montanus [this man is usually associated with Polyglots], and to the Greek of Arias Montanus and Leusden, and always adopted some one of the above-mentioned English copies as his authority, except in the mode of spelling, in which he has generally followed Johnson."

VARIANT READINGS OF THE BIBLE
The King James Bible was printed in 1611 by two printers. [Yes, Scott says seven] There were many printing errors between the two editions and then between later editions. F.H.A. Scrivener, M.A., D.C.I., LL.D. Prebendary of Exeter and Vicar of Hendon, Camnbridge included the changes in his introduction to the Cambridge Paragraph Bible of 1873. A reprint of this with updated information of his seven year study was published by Cambridge at the University Press in 1884. The reprint was titled 'The Authorized Edition of the English Bible (1611). In this reprint he details the: history of the text; marginal notes; italic type; punctuation and grammatical peculiarities.
Before Scrivener could compare the 1611 with his current Bible, he had to review and decide on the variants between the two original prints. He used the Authorized version of 1611, represented by Cambridge A.3.14 and the Oxford reprint of 1833. Wherever there was a difference he had to decide on a preferred reading. In total he found 167 variations between the two 1611 printings.
From 1611 to 1874 many printers printed many Bibles. It was obvious from day one that there were many printing errors in the original. Over the years each printer would make slight corrections. Scrivener's study traced all [except Walcutt's] of these changes with documentation as to when and where these changes took place.
However, many of these changes were never made in the WALCUTT FAMILY BIBLE. Following is a list, in chronological Scripture order, of the variants that Scrivener found between 1611 and 1874 Bibles WHICH WERE NOT MADE IN THE WALCUTT FAMILY BIBLE. This Bible has the first reading that appeared in the AV1611.
The Book of the Bible with chapter and verse is listed first.
The first reading is from the original 1611 Kings James and WALCUTT's Bible.
The final reading (separated by comma) is from the current KJV Concord edition. There are a few exceptions, but not noted here.
Date at end of line is when the original reading was corrected, except when preceded by a "C" or an "O". In this case the two readings are from the 1611 original from Cambridge and Oxford. The "C" or "O" before 1611 identifies Scrivener's reading preferance.
