Religion
The King James or 'Authorized' edition of the Bible (1611) was the standard edition of the Bible for nearly three centuries, drawing heavily on previous editions and providing the principal influence for many subsequent versions. This online version, which includes the Apocrypha, allows one to go to a specific chapter and verse, browse by book, and search for keywords. The text (of the 'He' version) is given in full, with all introductory matter, annotation, calendars, genealogies and tables included.
