This is an add-on module for HolyBible and requires a BasePack to be installed first. The AV Module of 1769 is the earliest edition for which there exists a complete electronic version.
Unlike the KJV revised edition of 1833 which is contained in the UK Base Pack, the AV 1769 edition is more archaic in its rendition and contains variations in rendering the same original Hebrew and Greek wording. Thus it is more difficult to be certain that a word search has found all passages of interest.
However it is considered by many as a translation which is more accurate in that it better renders the words so as to avoid possible ambiguity. Such is shown in:-
The earlier (1769 AV) translation implies that Jesus existed as God before his conception on earth, which is theologically sound. The 1833 KJV could merely mean that Jesus showed us what God would be like if we saw Him.
However in other respects the earlier AV has been translated with a 16th century European mind-set. An example of this is the use of the word "candlestick" in Mt 5:15, which Noah Webster changed to "lampstand", which is historically more accurate for 1st century Palestine.
Users wishing to further explore these textual variations are referred to the web-site of the Trinitarian Bible Society.
