The King James Trust are running an interesting project to 400th anniversary of the King James Bible.
Their plan is to get the whole translation onto youtube and they’ve already got a long way there.
As you might expect for the KJV, a lot of the readers are establishment figures, for example Boris Johnson, Prince Charles and Richard Dawkins, but the trust are also asking anyone who wants to record a passage of their choice. I would have gone for this one had it not been taken.
I like the story of the KJV’s history and I also like the interest there is in it again. It wouldn’t be my first choice of translation to read, but listening to the YouTube readers is very compelling. It reminds me how beautiful this translation is and what a precious resource we have in the Bible!
