King James Bible 1611



31:1And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying,
31:2Auenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward shalt thou be gathered vnto thy people.
31:3And Moses spake vnto the people, saying, Arme some of your selues vnto the warre, and let them goe against the Midianites, and auenge the Lord of Midian.
31:4Of euery tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of Israel, shall ye send to the warre.
31:5So there were deliuered out of the thousands of Israel, a thousand of euery tribe, twelue thousand armed for warre.
31:6And Moses sent them to the warre, a thousand of euery tribe, them and Phinehas the sonne of Eleazar the Priest, to the warre, with the holy instruments, and the trumpets to blow, in his hand.
31:7And they warred against the Midianites, as the Lord commanded Moses, and they slew all the males.
31:8And they slew the Kings of Midian, beside the rest of them that were slaine; namely Eui, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, fiue Kings of Midian; Balaam also the sonne of Beor they slew with the sword.
31:9And the children of Israel tooke all the women of Midian captiues, and their little ones, and tooke the spoile of all their cattell, and all their flocks, and all their goods.
31:10And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all their goodly castles with fire:
31:11And they tooke all the spoile, and all the pray, both of men and of beasts.
31:12And they brought the captiues, and the pray, and the spoile vnto Moses and Eleazar the Priest, and vnto the Congregation of the children of Israel, vnto the campe at the plaines of Moab, which are by Iordan neere Iericho.
31:13And Moses and Eleazar the Priest, and all the Princes of the Congregation went foorth to meete them without the campe.
31:14And Moses was wroth with the officers of the hoste, with the captaines ouer thousands, and captaines ouer hundreds, which came from the battel.
31:15And Moses said vnto them, Haue ye saued all the women aliue?
31:16Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsell of Balaam, to commit trespasse against the Lord in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the Congregation of the Lord.
31:17Now therefore kill euery male among the little ones, and kill euery woman that hath knowen man, by lying with him.
31:18But all the women children that haue not knowen a man by lying with him, keepe aliue for your selues.
31:19And doe yee abide without the campe seuen dayes: whosoeuer hath killed any person, and whosoeuer hath touched any slaine, purifie both your selues, and your captiues, on the third day, and on the seuenth day.
31:20And purifie all your raiment, and all that is made of skinnes, and all worke of goates haire, and all things made of wood.
31:21And Eleazar the Priest said vnto the men of warre which went to the battell, This is the ordinance of the law which the Lord commaunded Moses.
31:22Onely the gold, and the siluer, the brasse, the yron, the tinne, and the lead,
31:23Euery thing that may abide the fire, yee shall make it goe through the fire, and it shall be cleane: neuerthelesse, it shall be purified with the water of separation: and all that abideth not the fire, yee shall make goe through the water.
31:24And ye shall wash your clothes on the seuenth day, and ye shalbe cleane, and afterward yee shall come into the campe.
31:25And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying,
31:26Take the summe of the pray, that was taken, both of man and of beast, thou and Eleazar the Priest, and the chiefe fathers of the Congregation:
31:27And diuide the pray into two parts, betweene them that tooke the warre vpon them, who went out to battell, and betweene all the Congregation.
31:28And leuie a tribute vnto the Lord of the men of warre which went out to battell: one soule of fiue hundred, both of the persons, and of the beeues, and of the asses, and of the sheepe.
31:29Take it of their halfe, and giue it vnto Eleazar the Priest, for an heaue offering of the Lord.
31:30And of the children of Israels halfe, thou shalt take one portion of fiftie, of the persons, of the beeues, of the asses, and of the flockes, of all maner of beasts, and giue them vnto the Leuites, which keepe the charge of the Tabernacle of the Lord.
31:31And Moses and Eleazar the Priest did as the Lord commanded Moses.
31:32And the bootie being the rest of the pray which the men of war had caught, was six hundred thousand, and seuenty thousand, and fiue thousand sheepe,
31:33And threescore and twelue thousand beeues,
31:34And threescore and one thousand asses:
31:35And thirtie and two thousand persons in all, of women that had not knowen man by lying with him.
31:36And the halfe which was the portion of them that went out to warre, was in number three hundred thousand, and seuen and thirtie thousand, and fiue hundred sheepe.

31:44And thirtie and sixe thousand beeues:

King James Bible 1611

King James Bible 1611

The commissioning of the King James Bible took place at a conference at the Hampton Court Palace in London England in 1604. When King James came to the throne he wanted unity and stability in the church and state, but was well aware that the diversity of his constituents had to be considered. There were the Papists who longed for the English church to return to the Roman Catholic fold and the Latin Vulgate. There were Puritans, loyal to the crown but wanting even more distance from Rome. The Puritans used the Geneva Bible which contained footnotes that the king regarded as seditious. The Traditionalists made up of Bishops of the Anglican Church wanted to retain the Bishops Bible.

The king commissioned a new English translation to be made by over fifty scholars representing the Puritans and Traditionalists. They took into consideration: the Tyndale New Testament, the Matthews Bible, the Great Bible and the Geneva Bible. The great revision of the Bible had begun. From 1605 to 1606 the scholars engaged in private research. From 1607 to 1609 the work was assembled. In 1610 the work went to press, and in 1611 the first of the huge (16 inch tall) pulpit folios known today as "The 1611 King James Bible" came off the printing press.
