5 Most Celebrated Bible Print Typos

Just like any book, the Bible was written by and printed by men, but uniquely inspired by God.

There are lots of typos or print errors in biblical print editions, but these are the most celebrated ones by order of the year printed, most of which (in most pious ages) brought down the wrath of God on to the luckless printers in the form of crippling fines (their butts were fried, believe me).

1. Blessed are the placemakers, for they shall be called the children of God. (1562)

Originally: Blessed are the PEACEmakers, for they shall be called the children of God (Matthew 5.9)

Placemakers or not, we are all children of God, so far as you live by His Word.

2. Thou shall commit adultery.  (1631)

Originally: Thou shall NOT commit adultery (Exodus 20:14)

It can be imagined that amorous men and whore house owners had a field trip with this verse as evidence and proof of legitimacy. But notwithstanding, the printers (Robert Barker and Martin Lucas) were fined £300 and most of the copies were recalled immediately. It had been dubbed The Wicked Bible, Only 11 copies are known to exist today. If you really need a copy of this artifact, you can get it online for $89500. As of 2015, there are only 10 copies left at a value of $99,500.

3. The fool hath said in his heart there is a God…
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall inherit the Kingdom of God?  (1653)

Originally: The fool hath said in his heart that there is NO God (Psalm 14:1)
the printers were fined £3000, and all copies ordered destroyed.

4. Printers have persecuted me without a cause    (1702)

Originally: PRINCES have persecuted me without a cause. Psalm 119:161

Well, after reading the first three typos, I couldn’t agree more.

5. Sin on more (1716)

Originally: Sin NO more! Jeremiah 31:34

Slow down bro!, go with the second one and not the first.
