an English translation of the Bible produced for King James I of England in 1611, which is also known in Britain as the Authorized Version. For hundreds of years this was the main type of Bible used in both the US and the UK, and many well-known sayings from the Bible come from this translation. It is now used much less often and has been replaced by more modern translations.
