American King James Version
From Textus Receptus
The American King James Version (AKJV) is translation by Michael Peter (Stone) Engelbrite of True Grace Ministries, based on the original King James Version who claims his version is "a simple word for word update from the King James English".
In 1999 he placed it into the public domain. Care has been taken to change nothing doctrinally, but to simply update the spelling and vocabulary. The grammar has not been changed to avoid altering the doctrine. In a note distributed with the translation, he stated, “You may use it in any manner you wish: copy it, sell it, modify it, etc. You can't copyright it or prevent others from using it. A special thanks to Tye Rausch and Eve Engelbrite who helped tremendously on this project. You can't claim that you created it, because you didn't.”
