Angela: As far as I am aware, the words, And the lion shall lay with the lamb, has never been in the Bible, not even in newer versions. The confusion probably arises from it being a common phrase in many Sunday Schools. I think it's a similar case with the exact words, cleanliness is next to godliness, since it's also popular quotation, but technically isn't in the Bible either.
There is a famous painting that shows a Lion and Lamb, but its not true that the bible ever said a Lion laid down with a lamb.
