Throughout history, printers' errors and peculiar translations have appeared in Bibles published throughout the world. In various printings of the King James Version of the Bible, some of the more famous examples have been given their own names. Among them are:
The Blasphemous Comma Several editions: Luke 23:32 reads "And there were also two other malefactors [crucified with Jesus]." It should have read "And there were also two other, malefactors."
"Wicked Bible", "Adulterous Bible" or "Sinner's Bible" 1631: Barker and Lucas: Omits an important "not" from Exodus 20:14, making the seventh commandment read Thou shalt commit adultery. […] This blunder was spread in a number of copies. About a year later, the publishers of the Wicked Bible were fined £300 […] and were deprived of their printer’s license. The fact that this edition of the Bible contained such a flagrant mistake outraged Charles I of England and George Abbot, the Archbishop of Canterbury […] The majority of the Wicked Bible’s copies were immediately cancelled and burned […] Only 11 copies are known to exist today […] which are considered highly valuable by collectors.
"Unrighteous Bible" or "Wicked Bible" 1653: Cambridge Press: Another edition carrying this title omits a "not" before the word "inherit", making I Corinthians 6:9 read Know ye not that the unrighteous shall inherit the kingdom of God?… In addition, Romans 6:13 reads Neither yield ye your members as instruments of righteousness into sin… where it should read "unrighteousness".
"Sin On Bible": 1716: John 8:11 reads Go and sin on more rather than "Go and sin no more".
"Vinegar Bible": 1717: J. Baskett, Clarendon Press: The chapter heading for Luke 20 reads The Parable of the Vinegar instead of "The Parable of the Vineyard." One reviewer called this particular edition "a Baskett full of errors," what with its being replete with numerous other specimens of typographical errata throughout. One copy sold for $5,000 in 2008.
"The Fools Bible": 1763: Psalm 14:1 reads the fool hath said in his heart there is a God", rather than … there is no God". The printers were fined three thousand pounds and all copies ordered destroyed.
"To-remain Bible" 1805: In Galatians 4:29 a proof-reader had written in "to remain" in the margin, as an answer to whether a comma should be deleted. The note inadvertently became part of the text, making the edition read But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit to remain, even so it is now.
