Erroneous Bibles

[FONT=&quot]Dear Friends,
The printed word is subject to error and no less the Holy Bible:

"The so-called "Wicked Bible" of 1631 reported the Seventh Commandment as "Thou shalt commit adultery,""...

The printer was fined so heavily he was put out of business and most copies were destroyed- though some still exist.

Some more Biblical errors:
"A 16th Century printer had Jesus blessing the "place-makers" (instead of the "peacemakers")."

* Unrighteous Bible: A 1653 printing declared: "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall inherit the [/FONT][FONT=&quot]kingdom[/FONT][FONT=&quot] of [/FONT][FONT=&quot]God[/FONT][FONT=&quot]?"

* Printers Bible: In the 1702 edition of the King David Bible, he is quoted as saying "Printers (instead of "princes") have persecuted me without cause."

* "Sin On" Bible: The first English-language Bible to be printed in[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Ireland[/FONT][FONT=&quot] (in 1716) encouraged readers to "sin on more" (instead of "sin no more").

* Wife-Hater Bible: An 1810 version read, "If any man come to me, and
hate not his own wife (instead of "life"), he cannot be my disciple."

* Camels Bible: In 1832 an edition had Rebekah leaving her tent to
meet Isaac with a group of camels (instead of damsels).

* Murderer's Bible: Another 19th-century issue had Mark 7:27
reading: "Let the children be killed" (instead of "filled").
