The Translators to the Readers (Preface to the KJV 1611)

by Dr. Miles Smith, one of the KJV translators


Written to the readers by the translators of the King James Version. Know why they desired to translate the "originals" into English based upon their own testimonies and convictions on the issue of the Bible.

KJV critics take 'snipits' out of this document to misrepresent the beliefs of the KJV translators.  Seeing the work in its entirety proves that they believed that it was the final English Bible. They also denounced the omissions now seen in modern bibles, then extant in what they called faulty the Septuagint and Catholic bibles.
