Default King Jameseque readings

I have discovered something called "King Jameseque readings", which are particular readings or meanings found in Scripture which are particular or partial to the King James Bible.

There are several examples where, due to the particular rendering of a Scripture in English, the King James Bible can read another way, with another meaning.


“And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.” (Genesis 22:8).

This would be read to mean that God would provide for himself a lamb. However, if taken prophetically, God would provide literally himself for a burnt offering.


“For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens” (Hebrews 7:26).

This would be read to mean that Christ the High Priest visited man, gracing them with His presence. However, the word “became” is taken another way, that is, to turn into, then it shows Christ’s substitutionary work in the flesh.


“For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.” (Hebrews 4:8).

This would be read to mean that Joshua’s words would be taken prophetically concerning a rest the people of God would come into. However, if the word “Jesus” is taken to mean Christ, then the “day” is the day of judgment, and the rest that which comes to pass after a lifetime of believing, “His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” (Matthew 25:23).
