In a recent study of different Bible translations, the Authorized King James Version has been shown to be the easiest to understand. Dr. Jill Kerr speculates that this is because the KJV uses words that don't have many syllables. She said, "Even a 5th grader can understand the King James Version. Take a sample phrase, 'So and more also do God unto the enemies of David, if I leave of all that pertain to him by the morning light any that pisseth against the wall.' Note how there is only one word with more than two syllables, 'enemies'. This shows how easy the King James Version is to understand."
The King James Version of the worlds' second most popular book (after the Da Vinci Code), the Bible, dates unsurprisingly back to the time of King James I of England. The king, eccentric moron that he was, decided to publish a new version of the Bible so that common people could read it in their vernacular language. The project was a spectacular failure, since no-one could read at the time anyway. It did, however, have the result that the King James Version is the most readable version of the Bible.
