"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God." The King James Bible is "given by inspiration of God".

Some people say only the original writings are "inspired" and to call the KJV "inspired" would be "double inspiration".

But we can notice that the Bible did not say all Scriptureis "inspired", but all Scripture is "given by inspiration". The originals, as well as the KJV, are all Scripture "given by inspiration". That is, they are "words" "breathed" from the "mouth" of God and given by the "Spirit" of God to man. Inspiration began, not only when "holy men of God SPAKE as they were moved by the Holy Ghost", but when "every word proceedeth out of the mouth of God".

What I'm saying is, even the Ten Commandments "written with the finger of God" on two tables of stone were not the "inspired originals". I believe they were inspired, written COPIES of the original, SPOKEN Word of God.

In other words, the ORIGINALS were not the written copy but the SPOKEN original. (See, for example, in Exodus 20.) God spoke His original word; He had man write a copy of his SPOKEN word. The written copy (Scripture) is given, not by writing, but by "inspiration of God'.

So, when we say the KJV is "given by inspiration of God", it means that this is the Book that FIRST came out of the very MOUTH of God. Inspiration did not start in 1611, but it started when God "spoke" or "breathed" the spoken originals.
