The King James translators conclude their incredible preamble by clearly stating that they did not set out to make “bad” translations of the Bible “good,” but to make “good” ones “better.” They then “commend” the reader “to God” and pray for God to “remove the scales from [readers’] eyes, the vale from [readers’] hearts,” and to “open” readers’ minds so that they “may understand God’s Word.” All of this is prayed in the hope that readers of the King James Version of the Bible will come to “love” God’s Word “above gold and silver,” as well as “to the end.”
