Spelling issues in Blayney's 1769

Though modern editions of the KJV claim to be essentially the same as the 1769 standard, Blayney's work still contained some archaic spellings and some inconsistent spellings. Most of these were unified amd corrected in works such as the Scofield Bible that was used as the Reference Text for the earlier editions of the KJV module. Though there is much to be gained by examining the Blayney's 1769, it would be a retrograde step to revert the KJV module to his spellings.

I don't think it'd be a backward step. But if so, maybe we fork the KJV as what we have now is not the 1769 Blayney, but rather Old Scofield? There is considerable value in having an accurate text for the Blayney edition. --Dmsmith 11:11, 25 January 2016 (MST)
