Carry with you every day the Word of God on your phone, read and study the KJV, the source from which most literal English translations derive their inspiration. The King James I of England commissioned a translation of the Holy Scriptures in 1604. The work was made by a group of biblical scholars of the Church of England. They based the translation on the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts. It was officially known as the Authorized Version, and also informally known as the King James Bible or King James Version (KJV).
