The Divine Name King James Bible

Note what the publishers have to say about The Divine Name King James Bible:

"It is a real King James Bible in the sense that we leave all the text as it is in the Authorized King James Bible other than the Divine Name." - Heading: "Is the DNKJB a real King James Bible?"

So the DNKJB is claimed to be exactly the same as the Authorized King James Bible except that it has the Divine Name in it. It is a good thing for the publishers to have restored the Divine Name using the DNKJB. However, there were many problems with the original KJV in addition to omitting God's personal name 'Jehovah' from the original Hebrew text.

With the exception of the New World Translation, many translations (including the KJV) were made by those who were influenced by the pagan philosophies and unscriptural traditions that their religious systems had passed down from long ago as well as other influences. Therefore, despite the Divine Name King James Bible restoring the name 'Jehovah' nearly 7,000 times, it still retains a trinitarian bias (Compare John 1:1, John 8:58, Rom. 9:5, Col. 2:9 - just to list a few), along with other unscriptural traditions and influences.
