Did you know that in 1631, a bible version of King James Bible was published with the word "not" missing from the seventh commandment? Making it "thou shalt commit adultery". Read it again. Yes, you read that right! Publishers Robert Barker and Martin Lucas made about 1,000 copies of the bible and it was later dubbed as the Sinner's Bible (it was also coined the Adulterous Bible or the Wicked Bible). Well, we'll never know how many people actually abided by the law said in that version! It's pretty humorous to think about it now but looking back, it enraged the King Charles I of England and Archbishop George Abbot of Canterbury. The worst part is their license to print was revoked. According to sources, it wasn't a typographical error caused by man but rather an alleged act of sabotage done by Barker's rival. Well, apparently, bible printing one-upmanship was a thing before.
After 400 years, experts say only 9 copies of it are left. But by some random twist of fate, a rare copy was set for auction lead by Bonhams in 2015. The price of the wicked version ranged from $15,000 to $23,000! Anyway, gone are the days of typo-prone scriptures. We thank technology once again for making anything convenient and easier for us. There are now bible apps available for reading through your smartphones!
