Everything about the mistakes in The Bible

Everything about the mistakes in The Bible

Almost 4 billion copies of the Holy Bible have been published, sold, and circulated in the last 50 years alone as the Bible continues to lead in sales by a vast margin over all other published books.

However the Bible has had several notable misprints and typographical errors in its illustrious history in print.

An unpopular 1653 copy of the Bible reads:

“The unrighteous shall inherit the Kingdom of God”

The correct passage in Corinthians 6:9 actually reads;

“The unrighteous shall not inherit the earth”


A mishandled copy of the Bible printed in1862 overlooked a very important passage in Revelations by proclaiming the number of the beast or antichrist, as ‘999’ rather than ‘666’.


A copy of the Bible printed in1914 listed “Thou shalt kill” as one of the 10 commandments. The correct commandment is of course, “Thou shalt not kill”.

And the most noteworthy error of all was made in the intended reprint of the 1631 King James Bible. The verse read

“Thou shalt commit adultery”.

King Charles I’s disapproval was widely documented, and the publishers were disciplined with a £300 fine and their printer’s license to produce printed materials was revoked. The intended reprint was coined ’The Wicked Bible’ and almost all the botched copies were gathered together and burned. It is rumoured that a total of 11 copies survived the burning.

A copy of the wicked Bible is held at the New York Library and the current online sale price for a ‘Wicked Bible’ is $89,500.
