Searchable KJV with marginalia?

8 Comment(s) +
Does anyone know of a searchable KJV text (original spelling or modern) which also shows the marginalia?


  1. Here is a link that contains the modern spelling of the marginalia.


  2. The example given does not inspire much confidence:

    "Genesis 25:18 he did eat of his venison: Heb. venison was in is mouth"

    Other than getting the verse reference wrong, and modernly spelling "his" as "is," it's a good example . . .

  3. "Revelation 20:13 hell: Or, hell [obviously a typo in 1611]"

    This was subsequently corrected to, "Or, the grave"

  4. Mark 7:3 oft: Or, diligently, in the Original, with the fist, Theophylact, up to the elbow

    This is very interesting note, for a couple of reasons:
    1. It's the only one (at least in the NT) where a conjecture is identified as such;
    2. It's the only one with a patristic reference.

  5. Oops, not quite.

    Acts 13:18 suffered: Gr. etropophoresen as a nurse beareth or feedeth her child, Deut. 1.31. 2. Macc 7.27. according to the Sept. and so Chrysost.

  6. I would note that the freely downloadable Online Bible software program has the AV marginals (with correct spelling).

  7. Searchable? No. But at
    you can view page-images of a 1611 KJV, as well as other historically significant Bibles.
