This Holy Bible is the King James Version, containing New and Old Testaments. The King James Version (KJV) of the Holy Bible, also known as the Authorized Version, is one of the most widely recognized and influential translations of the Bible in the English language. Its history begins in the early 17th century.

In the early 1600s, there were several English translations of the Bible in circulation, including the Geneva Bible and the Bishop's Bible. However, King James I of England, who ascended to the throne in 1603, believed that a new translation was needed to address some of the perceived problems with the existing versions and to create a unified translation for the Church of England.

In 1604, King James convened the Hampton Court Conference, where he proposed the creation of a new English translation of the Bible. He appointed a group of around 50 scholars and theologians, divided into six panels, to undertake the translation work. These panels were based at Oxford, Cambridge, and Westminster.

The translation project took several years to complete. The scholars worked diligently to translate the text from the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek manuscripts. They aimed to produce a faithful and accurate rendition of the Scriptures while also ensuring that the language used was dignified and suitable for liturgical purposes.

In 1611, the first edition of the King James Version was published. It contained the Old Testament, Apocrypha, and New Testament. The KJV drew heavily on previous English translations, especially the Bishop's Bible, but it also incorporated fresh translations from the original texts. The translators made significant efforts to maintain the literary beauty and grandeur of the language, resulting in a text that is highly regarded for its literary qualities.

The King James Version gradually gained acceptance and popularity among English-speaking Christians. Its majestic language and widespread distribution helped to solidify its place as the primary English Bible for centuries to come. It became the official Bible of the Church of England and was widely used in Protestant denominations.

Over time, the King James Version underwent various revisions and updates to correct errors and improve accuracy. However, the original 1611 edition remains influential and continues to be cherished by many readers today for its historical and literary significance.

It's worth noting that there are now numerous translations of the Bible available in English, reflecting advances in scholarship and understanding of the ancient texts. While the King James Version remains an important landmark in the history of Bible translations, modern readers have a wide range of options to choose from based on their preferences and needs.
