JULY 24

King James’ resolution for the translation of a new authorized version of the English Bible was adopted by the church leaders at the Hampton Court Conference. In support of the King’s decision, the church leaders issued the following resolution of their own: “That a translation be made of the whole Bible, as consonant as can be to the original Hebrew and Greek; and this to be set out and printed, without any marginal notes, and only to be used in all Churches of England in time of divine service.”
