How many misspellings are there in the bible.

The Bible’s books were written in different languages, and those languages might not have spelling as standardized as that of modern English. Even the form of English used in the King James Bible is not the same as that used today, for example, in the original 1611 version, the word for “fourteen” was spelled in two different ways, for typesetting purposes. It was spelled as foureteene and fourteene.Here’s a webpage that might be useful to you. It compares the text of the 1611 King James Bible to an updated version of it from 1769. You can see spelling, capitalization, errors, and other things that were changed.….

how many pages are there in the king james version of the bible and the book of mormon combined.

don’t give that “there are so many versions of the bible that it’s physically impossible to know how many pages there are” BS. i gave a specific version, that’s enough specification in my opinion

531 pages for my Book Of Mormon. Plus 1590 pages for my version of the King James Version Of The Bible.So 531 + 1590 = 2121By the way yes it is true, there are so many versions of the Bible and The Book Of Mormon, because page sizes are different and so forth, so it is indeed impossible to have a standard number of pages for either volume, or a standard number of pages for both volumes when combined together.The Bible, The Book Of Mormon, The Doctrine And Covenants, and The Pearl Of Great Price are often combined into one (very) large book. And if this book is in large print, then you most certainly do not want to drop it on your big toe.But it is great reading material and it is a very spiritual thing to do to search the pages of a Quadruple Combination, because there are so many of Jesus Christ’s words contained in a Quadruple Combination, and the words of Jesus Christ are what can make anyone truly happy, if they are committed to trying to live Christ’s amazingly beautiful, and spirit healing, commandments.

How many mistranslations are there in the King James Bible.

I’m having a big fight with my family because I said the King James Version is wrong. They say I’m sacrilegious but it’s been noted by numerous scholars that there are mistranslations in the KJV. What are some things where I can show them all the mistranslations? Thanks.

The problem is with your word “mistranslations.”The Bible isn’t mistranslated. You’re wrong. Now, that’s not sacrilegious, but such a statement is factually incorrect.There are questions about a very small portion of verses within the Bible. Newer translations (like the NIV) make different word choices for these sections, but a different choice of word doesn’t mean the original choice was wrong.There are also questions about a few passages of scripture that do not appear in older manuscripts that have since been found since the King James Version was translated. In the interest of accuracy, newer translations leave these questionable passages out.It must be noted that even with these discrepancies, there is far less than one percent of New Testament scripture that is questionable. More importantly, these passages contain ZERO doctrinal statements, so even if we simply throw out everything that is the least bit doubtful, there would be no change whatsoever to Christian doctrine.—–You’ve addressed some updated comments to me, but I confess I don’t understand them.As I indicated in my answer above, there are a couple of notable cases where early manuscripts may contain a phrase that it not found in later manuscripts. It is more likely that the questionable phrases were added at a later date, but it is also possible that they were omitted from earlier manuscripts. Regardless, as I indicated, these issues are extremely few and they are — in every single case — not doctrinal. They make no difference to Christian belief, whether they’re included or not.Now, I didn’t say the Bible was inerrant in my answer, so I’m not sure why you say this in your updated comments addressed to me. Nevertheless, I think you confuse the issues of translation and transmission.Translation is the process of taking a document — be it a will, a menu, a newspaper, or a Bible — and rendering it in a different language. This is as much art as it is science, though there are very specific rules and procedures for most translation efforts. There are a great many different translations of scripture, and though they vary in their wording, they do not vary in meaning. This is only logical.For instance, if you go to a restaurant and order a hamburger, that’s what you’ll get. If you order it from the Spanish menu, the word for hamburger is different, but you get the same result. If you order from the French menu, you shouldn’t suddenly expect to get the fish. The meaning of the wording is the same, even though the specific wording may vary.Transmission is different than translation. It seems to me that you may actually be worried about transmission.Transmission is the process of a document being written, copied, recopied, and recopied as its passed down through time. Archaeology shows us that we can absolutely trust the transmission of the Bible through time.So either way, you’re wrong. If you care about accuracy (and I think you do) then I think you need to investigate the subject a bit more before claiming outright that the Bible is erroneous.You might be interested in the book “The Case for Christ,” by Lee Strobel. In the book, Strobel gives a basic primer on many aspects of Christian belief. One of these is the transmission and translation of scripture.Now, the book is hardly the most detailed account of these issues, but it’s an easy read and is a great jumping off point to further study on the subject, as it contains references to other more detailed works on the subject.—–Oh. So you’re homosexual. I wish you’d indicated that that’s what this was about at the outset.Nevertheless, what you’re suggesting is that the translators of the King James (in 1611), the translators of the New American Standard Version, the translators of the New International Version (in 1973), William Darby, and dozens of others have all conspired against homosexuals in English, and others worldwide have done the same to persecute them needlessly in various other languages.Does that seem rational to you?It now appears I was incorrect. Your beef isn’t with transmission. And it’s not with translation. It’s with application.

How many pages are there in the King James Bible.

I’m going to read one page a day. I just wonder how long it will take me to finish it!

As others have mentioned, different editions of the Bible have a different number of pages – simply because of differences in type face size, page size, margin size, additional content, etc.*IF* you read slowly and carefully, then a 66-book Bible takes about 120 hours to read. So: if you read just 1/2 hour **every** day, you will finish the entire Bible in about 9 months. If you read 4 hours every day, you can finish in a single month!Again: this applies when you are reading *slowly and carefully* – as if you were studying for a test. If you read it casually, like you read a novel, you can finish the job in half the time or even less.- Jim,

  1. Not sure about the chapters though.This system of interpreting words as numbers of significance is known as Gematria. For example the number *eight* in the bible is a number that represents a new beginning. The name Jesus in the Greek is Ἰησοῦς where the letter Ἰ=10 η=8 σ=200 ο=70 ῦ=400 ς=200 ….thus the total for His name is 888.One of THE main things that it is ‘inaccurate’ about, is the very name of the Bible’s Author . . .It depends. Someone may have mistyped on a translation…the original writers may have used a wrong Hebrew letter (though unlikely), etc. etc.

  2. That’s a good question. I’ve forgotten the number of Chapters in the Old Testament.- Finding the Best Translation know I am what about you? lol…There are 39 chpaters in the Old Testament.

  3. (1 John 4:6 KJV) We are of God:The original Hebrew Scriptures and Greek Scriptures are real and still around. Because of this, the King James version has been shown to contain thousands of translation errors after being compared in modern times to the original scripts. Other translations are more accurate and there is one that is most accurate. I read from the accurate translation. How do you come to the conclusion that what people know about God is false? Because the King James version has many errors? That is one translation of the Bible and thanks to honest determined scholars, we know that it contains many errors and so we should not use it but instead use an accurate translation of the Bible.

  4. C. AD 400: Jerome translates the Bible from Hebrew and Greek into Latin (called the “Vulgate”). He knows that the Jews have only 39 books, and he wants to limit the OT to these; the 7 he would leave out (Tobit, Judith, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach [or “Ecclesiasticus”], and Baruch–he calls “apocrypha,” that is, “hidden books.” But Pope Damasus wants all 46 traditionally-used books included in the OT, so the Vulgate has 46.I don’t knowIt must be the Devil and the Antichrist working together to divide, conquer and destroy christianity from the inside!!!and the world heareth them.There are very few places where it has been proven wrong. The most spurious verse is I John 5:7; however, the way it is written, it is not in conflict with the rest of the Bible. Some sources say Matthew 28:19 is not in the Koine Greek manuscripts that have been found, and in John 14, “mansions” was probably not in the original. Compare any sections you don’t understand to the New American Standard Bible. Overall, the KJV is reliable. Among the Dead Sea Scrolls found about 65 years ago were manuscripts that were very close to the KJV; most of the differences were insignificant.

  5. Within a specific version of the Bible, like the King James version, there are additional versions – annotated, reference, “basic”, and so on. The same goes for the Book of Mormon. In addition to versions, the overalll size of the book itself will affect the number of pages. Is it over-sized? Large print? Standard print? Are there additional inserts such as maps?

  6. Seems they always run away when confronted with thought provoking Facts. Faith after ALL is the substance of things hoped forIt depends what you mean…there were no “chapters” in the original texts the KJV was taken from, nor were there any verses. Those devices were added to make referencing different bits easier. The actual number of chapters varies from version to version of the “King James Bible”

  7. Dear bonnieblu,Christianity has been split into over 38,000 different denominations, sects and cults setting christian against christian and christians against everyone else!!Approximately 546 pages. Happy reading!

  8. You can buy t-shirts, totes, and posters with the Bible written on them. They only hold 40,000 words, though, and most of what I have been able to read are from the New Testament. The words form a picture of a dove on the front. Pretty cool. They have other books, too. The place is called Litographs.

  9. Obvious Mysteries revealed by His Spirit!The original one written in language that not many people even speak , so how do you know that this misspelled.who cares. But When I studied Christian deception at age 12, I remember that the catholic bible contains 73 books. The 4 extra books being “wisdom”, “sirach”, Tobit, and “Judith”. If you count the Apocrypha, which Only priests selfishly read, that makes it 74. If you count how many books king James slaved over a hot stove to filter out, It would be 134 + books. Don’t give into thoes twisted lies, For only 1% of all christians actually read the whole bible. I am good with christianity because I will overthrow it, naturally. I know all the religions. And studied them to the point of madness. I am one of the few 20 year olds that can speak latin and greek, and hebrew, and hittite, and sanskrit. I have translated the gospel of judas. Ha Ha! Dont take it as a suprise. Blacks gave the world the 3 major religions. You shoud thank us instead of letting us rot in the ghetto.

  10. You’re on a slippery slope. Mistranslated? What was the intention? The KJV says Jesus gave up the ghost. Most modern translations say spirit. In the Song of Solomon, KJV says the breasts are like two roe deer. But that was because no one in England would have understood if they’d correctly translated it as “gazelle”.But if there is a good prize for the correct answerhe that is not of God heareth not us.consistency is the advantage of a small brain. At what factor did you discover that it used to be a deficient translation of a wrong underlying textual content? and did you retain to research it after that?? If so,, why?

  11. The New Testament canon of the Catholic Bible and the Protestant Bible are the same with 27 Books.Instead of focussing on the negatives of any particutar Bible, focus instead on . . .Far too many.For the best answers, search on this site Bible is comprised of Hebrew in the Old Testament and Greek in the New Testament. The Hebrews and the Greeks use their alphabets as their numbering system. This means that their words also represent numbers as a co-incidence of this previous fact.While there are problems with any and all translations, especially of a collection of literatures which was written in many different languages over many years, in some senses, particularly in Psalms, KJV, while taking lisence, preserved the poetry intended by the authors much better than a more literal translation.

  12. therefore speak they of the world,Depends which Bible you have. If you have any, I suggest you have a word with the printers.

  13. Now this in itself may not be that surprising. But this principle has been applied in a similar fashion to the first verses of the Old and New Testaments. The results are surprising to say the least. The author claims there is a 1 in ten billion chance of it occurring. The formula that is applied is kind of suspicious but since it is the same formula applied to both verses the result achieved for both verses is so unique it is undoubtedly the hand of God.and the spirit of error.

  14. Ahaziah was ……twenty-two years……. old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem one year. His mother’s name was Athaliah, a granddaughter of Omri.MaranathaYou say TAMAHTOE and I Say TAMAYTOE … la la la .______________________________________…

  15. We encourage you to seek the Truth!(Ephesians 4:14 KJV) That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;Lets work the whole thing out!Why not read some good ‘non-fiction’ instead and perhaps learn something useful?

  16. The Authorized Version is a splendid English text, that should be recommended if only for its literary beauty. It bears the seal of King James Stuart, but is based on many previous translations, dating back from the times of John Wyclif and the many Reformation trends in England and on the continent. Great specialists of Hebrew and Greek Scriptures worked on it in the times of Queen Elisabeth I, in the wake of Luther’s translation of the Bible into German and Calvin’s friends into French. So all this enterprise must not be despised. God’s words have always been transmitted to men, called prophets, and if you read closely any version of the Bible, you’ll see that the original words from God have always been interpreted and “changed” by men, by Moses to begin with, with God’s approval. Only muslim fundamentalists believe that God’s words have been copied without any change by their prophet receiving them from heavenly dictation. This belief is totally opposed to christian and Jewish tradition, teaching that God speaks to men in their own language, and that his message has to be published to all men in their own idiom. The first translations of the Hebrew Bible into Aramaic are mentioned in the book of Nehemiah, and are very ancient and authorized by the rabbis.

  17. he that knoweth God heareth us;AD 1536: Luther translates the Bible from Hebrew and Greek to German. He assumes that, since Jews wrote the Old Testament, theirs is the correct canon; he puts the extra 7 books in an appendix that he calls the “Apocrypha.”I think 810,677 words if I am not mistaken.

  18. Well G-Force where are your accusers ?Just like sulphur on the diaseses … brup!May be it is us who misspelled right now 🙂

  19. Considering I have 4 KJV bibles which are all different sizes, shapes, and type points, it IS pretty hard to determine a standard set of page numbers.Do you mean spellings like Noah vs Noe ?Typical of uneducated and silly christians that think they know better than anyone else and destroy christianities cohesion!!Please send my winnings to The Save The Children Fund

  20. For example…I’m sorry but, saying the King James version is not specific enough. On my bookshelf at home, I have 3 different New International version Bibles and all three of them have a different number of pages.Just happened to be the first five keys I pressed73.Does it matter? It’s a load of made up rubbish anyway. Read a proper book, that Stephen King is very good.

  21. The King James version is not a reliable translation.”The Fight Against God’s NameSo which one are you working for – it simply cannot be god!!!

  22. Ahaziah was……. forty-two years…… old when he became king, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Athaliah the granddaughter of Omri.This can be sourced at the following unbiased links….0

  23. ********EDIT…So, the bibles will stay the Divinely Inspired Word of God, and the BOM will remain a 3/4 copied version of said bible and 1/4 gobbledy ****.

  24. (Psalms 2:12 KJV) Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little.

  25. C. AD 100: So Jewish rabbis meet at the Council of Jamniah and decide to include in their canon only 39 books, since only these can be found in Hebrew.No, that isn’t specific enough. There are dozens and dozens of editions of the King James version of the Bible – some are large print, for example, some are modern-day English while others are in an older version of English. Some are annotated, some are in pocket book size (or smaller) and some are very large pulpit-sized books, etc.etc.etc.800,000

  26. That having been said the authenticity of the Bible is a very strong one.- Are Word-for-Word Translations Best?

  27. Original Bible 66 booksIt’s interesting that you said the KJV, because, I heard that the Catholics Psalm 22, is actually Psalm 23 in the KJV!It switches the titles: God, &, LORD (in all capitals), for the tetragrammaton / God’s name: YHWH / Yahweh ; JHVH / Jehovah . . . about 7,000 times . . .

  28. Too many to count.May I make a suggestion . . .?1000-50 BC: The Old Testament (hereafter “OT”) books are written.I don’t know, I forgot, but I do know that there are 1189 chapters in the whole Bible

  29. keepon keepin on!(1 John 4:5 KJV) They are of the world:From start to finish. There can only be one version. the first.

  30. So you really do have to be more specific about the bible – and I suspect the Book of Mormon also has variations in its editions.

  31. (1 John 4:4 KJV) Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them:Hereby know we the spirit of truth,- Why Others Include the NameIt depends of font size and how big the pages are. There is of course the small edition, and the regular edition and what is jokingly called the high priests edition, and what is also jokingly called the sacrament meeting talk edition. Would you like the index included?did any one take time to check, are the going by what others say,

  32. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.Not that many…what kind of a bonus? A complimentary demon?

  33. 46 OT + 27 NT = 73. Some may tell you the Catholic Church “added” books, but it is in fact the Protestants that removed books.

  34. Well first, you have to take the size of the book and factor in the font. The bible could fit on 1 page if everything was measured out right.

  35. (Ephesians 4:15 KJV) But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

  36. pretty much every verse has multiple readings depending which ancient manuscript you use. Scholars have a hard time deciding which words are the original text.

  37. The results are 3.141554509 and 2.718312812 for Genesis 1v1 and John 1v1 respectively. Which is the value of Pi and e within 0.0012% and 0.0011% respectively!area of the parable that Catholics aren’t any further Christians is that we placed no importance on the Bible. Myths are contradictory or have more advantageous than one type, some say that we are forbidden to verify it. because the reason of most of the 20 th century thoughts in (American) Christianity are Bible depending and on the grounds that Catholics of direction, by technique of remark or rumor, reject them, that is concluded we ignore concerning the Bible. the reality is that we examine the Bible in an truly conservative way and do not locate “new issues” in it that were left out (or interpreted extra benignly) contained in the previous. We carry that no one passage trumps some thing else of scripture or divine revelation. many human beings do not recognize that meat comes from animals and fruit from timber. do no longer be surprisedd the are unfamiliar with the heritage of Christianity and the Bible. The literal which technique of the textual content is the concept for all meaning contained in the Bible. aspects of the Bible are fiction, fantasy, and fantasy. it isn’t a technology textbook. that is inerrant with appreciate to concerns of religion and morals. An irresponsible expertise scripture is without income or outcome no count number how fervent the guy who holds it.
