    What do you say is the difference between the Standard King James Bible and the 1611?

    Thank you for your time and answer.

    Hi Cynthia, you know you can see the difference by just comparing them, right?

    Main reason being it was written in old English no one today would know how to read Old English:

    The Authorized Version, as it came to be called, went through several editions and revisions. Two notable editions were that of 1629, the first ever printed at Cambridge, and that of 1638, also at Cambridge, which was assisted by John Bois and Samuel Ward, two of the original translators. In 1657, the Parliament considered another revision, but it came to naught. The most important editions were those of the 1762 Cambridge revision by Thomas Paris, and the 1769 Oxford revision by Benjamin Blayney. One of the earliest concordances was A Concordance to the Bible of the Last Translation, by John Down-ham, affixed to a printing of 1632. So much emphasis is put on our canonized bible of today of its validity, if it is truly inspired by God. I would start off by saying that the human with all their technological advancements in no way could instill the wisdom that our scripture produces. Prophecies have become true before our eyes, one only has to look at Psalms 22 that was written close to a 1K years before the crucifixion of Christ and is practically written word for word what happen to him; all the way down to Christ in his dying breathe, preached that scripture. The Bible KJV is made up of 66 books, 39 in Old Testament and 27 in the New. The old is divided into 3 parts. (1) The first five books of Moses or Pentateuch the law books (2) Which include the Prophets major and minor prophetic writings in which all have come true up until the time we are now in, closing on the 6th Seal (3) Writings - wisdom. The new Testament also divided into 3 segment's (1) The Gospels in which hire critics say contradict themselves which is ignorance of the Word (2) The churches the beginning of Christianity (3) Apostolic writings. The Bible written by 40 (meaning probation) authors over a period of 1500 years to surpass time itself and only revealed to man when appropriate.

    The main difference I notice, is the Apocrypha: that has the original books during the KJV 1611, not included in our US KJV versions.
