Text Provenance and Acknowledgments
Need for a reference text
The CrossWire KJV is meant to be the faithful e-text edition of the 1769 KJV. To that end it needs to be diligently checked against a reference standard for accuracy.
- the confusion regarding the text of the KJV.
- how the 1769 KJV in relation to other editions.
- the variations found in modern KJV.
- the KJV-only movement.
When Project KJV2006 was started, there was no authoritative edition of the 1769 Blayney edition of the KJV. All the modern versions available differed substantially.
The Old Scofield Study Bible was used for version 2.3 to 2.10 and was chosen for the following reasons:
While the KJV was a module at CrossWire prior to version 2.0, this is the earliest for which dates can be determined. Dates prior to version 2.3 are best estimates.
