As far as I can tell, Cambridge are not publishing the pure text any more.

The Cambridge Standard Text Edition has problems like lower case "spirit of God" in Genesis 1:2.

Here are some of the impure renderings of the Concord Cambridge: impure first, Pure Cambridge Edition second.

I have only listed one of each type of example, but there are more.

Genesis 24:57 — — enquire — — inquire (etc. etc.)
These have a possible different meaning.
Exodus 23:23 — — the Hivites — — and the Hivites
This is an English textual issue.
Numbers 6:5 — — razor — — rasor (etc. etc.)
These are spelling differences.
2 Samuel 18:29 — — Is the — — Is the (“Is” is in italics).
This is an italics difference.
Ezra 2:26 — — Gaba — — Geba
This is a spelling difference.
Ezra 6:4 — — expenses — — expences (etc.)
These are spelling differences.
Isaiah 9:6 — — Counsellor — — Counseller (etc. etc.)
These are spelling differences, but here the name of God is changed.
Jeremiah 32:5 — — prosper. — — prosper?
This is improper grammar.
Ezekiel 47:3 — — ankles — — ancles (etc.)
These are spelling differences.
Mark 2:1 — — Capernaum after — — Capernaum, after
This is a grammatical point.
Acts 11:12 — — Spirit — — spirit
This is a doctrinal issue.
Acts 11:28 — — Spirit — — spirit
This is a doctrinal issue.
Romans 4:18 — — nations, according — — nations; according
This is a grammatical point.
1 Corinthians 15:27 — — saith all — — saith, all
This is improper grammar.
1 John 5:8 — — Spirit — — spirit
This is a doctrinal issue.

The three different Cambridge Bibles I currently have listed on http://av1611.com/kjbp/books.html line up with the circa 1900 text except for 1Jo 5:7.

The interesting thing is, the hardcover large print KJ80 text used to have the circa 1900 1Jo 5:7 reading (spirit), (as does every Cambridge Bible and Collins Bible I have found printed between 1900 and 1980). But at some point in the 80s, they changed that one reading to Spirit but kept the ISBN number the same.

now i'm thinking about approaching a publishing company and asking them to print up some of the bibles with the text available from bible protector's website, or maybe putting it on a disk and having kinko's or someone print some up for me, maybe i can get them to do it in gen u ine leather too.. it'll be costly, but maybe, just maybe i can find a place that'll do it for me.. but i really am prolly just going to keep on with my thompson chain, i love the references in that bible, i already took a pen and put some of the corrections in the margin.. thats why i wanted a list of every variant, so i could go through and fix the whole dad gum thing..

Sadly, there is no end of variants.

But we have one true Bible, and one central presentation which we can regard as standard.

I would to God (to quote Erasmus) that we all were using the Pure Cambridge Edition, and I am glad to see that Brandon Staggs is now presenting it. The Scripture says, "The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it." (Psalm 68:11). We are in "great company", praise God.

if i ever go through with my printing endeavor i'll let you know, i'm planning on a waterproof one to take when i go in the outdoors, fishing, camping, and the sort. who knows maybe one of these days i'll start up a bible printing company of my own [one of my dreams] and get my own Christian bookstore [another dream of mine] and make it readily available to all in all kinds of bindings and with all sorts of study bibles and such

I currently have this Bible. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0521164389 hopefully this is a good one? I'm not sure how I would know? This is all quite confusing to me.

and would like to add the Interleaved Bible HAND BOUND NOTE BIBLE on the bottom of this site. http://www.pilkingtonandsons.com/interleavedbibles.htm it's out of stock right now. I would like to use this Bible for note taking, (if anyone else has any other suggestions that would be great)

Any way the Interleaved Bible Hand Bound says this: "Cambridge King James Version Text" and that's it. How do we know which Cambridge text it would be. Do you think it would be the same as the one I currently have?
