King James Version
2018 Reprint of KJV Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition software. Full title is: The Apocrypha: Translated Out of the Greek and Latin Tongues : Being the Version Set Forth A.D. 1611 Compared with the Most Ancient Authorities and Revised A.D. 1894. This volume reprints the KJV Apocrypha in a single volume. The Apocrypha ('hidden things') are contemporaneous with the Old Testament but were not officially accepted as part of the Bible when the Hebrew 'canon' was set. They did, however, form part of the Greek Scriptures and came into English Bibles by that route. The writings of the Apocrypha run the whole gamut of literary genres: histories, romances, devotional works, proverbs and sermons. Many complement parts of the Old Testament and readers will recognize some familiar Biblical characters in the narratives, such as Daniel and Esther.
