Bible printer’s errors
Two major bible printing errors include:
• "Wicked Bible", "Adulterous Bible" or "Sinner's Bible", from 1631: Barker and
Lucas: Omits an important "not" from Exodus 20:14, making the seventh commandment read "Thou

• "Unrighteous Bible" or "Wicked Bible", from 1653: Cambridge Press: Another edition
carrying this title omits a "not" before the word "inherit", making I Corinthians 6:9 read "Know ye not
that the unrighteous shall inherit the kingdom of God?..." In addition, Romans 6:13 reads "Neither
yield ye your members as instruments of righteousness into sin..." where it should read
