Bible Misprints

Here are some laughable Bible misprints. While I believe in the absolute authority of the word of God, sometimes man makes printing mistakes that are hilarious and silly. One such incident caused both of the printers to have been fined 300 pounds for the offense, and had their printers’ license revoked. They made a thousand Bibles that commanded people to commit adultery. These “Wicked Bibles” were printed, but King Charles I ordered them to be destroyed, making the “Wicked Bible” one of the rarest English Bibles in history. It is believed that only 11 of the original 1,000 have survived. The remaining “Wicked Bibles” are very seldom on public display; the one in the rare books collection of the New York Public Library is almost never made accessible to the public.

1) One of the Ten Commandments stated “Thou shalt commit adultery” in a 1631 edition of a King James Bible.

2) The Camel’s Bible of 1823 took it’s name from a misprinting Genesis 24:61. It read, “”And Rebekah arose, and her camels” instead of “her damsels.”

3) A Bible printed in Oxford, England was dubbed the Denial Bible. In this Bible, Philip is said to be the disciple who denied Jesus in Luke 22:35, rather than Peter.

4) A couple of glaring mistakes can be found in Bible made in 1807. Matthew 13:43 says, He that “Who hath ears to ears” instead of “Who hath ears to hear.”

5) This same Bible has Hebrews 9:14 saying, “How much more shall the blood of Christ..purge your conscience from good works” (should be dead works) to serve the living God.

6) Produced during the 1600’s Psalm 14:1 reads, “The fool hath said in his heart, there is a God.”

7) In the 1970 first edition of the King James 2 New Testament, John 1:5 reads, “And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness overcomes it.”

8) The Unrighteous Bible said of 1653 said, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9). 

9) The original King James Version of 1611 contained the mistaken verse of Matthew 26:36 which read, “Then cometh Judas,” when it should have read “Then cometh Jesus.” 

The fact remains that God loves everbody whether thay are a sinner or saint. His word will give your life have meaning and purpose.
