I read in the news that there was a discovery regarding the early work of the King James translators that you may find useful in your research. I have included the links below. It appears that an early notebook of Samuel Ward in which he makes notes regarding the translation of the Apocrypha (of which he was assigned as part of the translation team) has been found in a library collection that had been cataloged as a mere commentary. The material suggests that Ward worked on his portion of the King James text in solo and that his suggestions were either adopted, rejected, or entered into the margins, and that the work was not done in collective concert in a modern democratic style. Not surprising really, but apparently that has been a matter of controversy since a relative of John Bois wrote a biography detailing that sort of process rather than a modern committee style process. Anyway, I hope this information is useful to any researchers out there that may have missed the posting in the news. The first link is the primary source and the others are media releases for public consumption.
Bible Verse of the DayIsaiah 55:6-13 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
