The American King James Version is an English edition of the Holy Bible by Michael Peter (Stone) Engelbrite, based on the King James Version. According to Engelbrite, it is a simple word-for-word update of the spelling and vocabulary found in the King James English to modern American English.
Engelbrite has put the American King James version of the Bible into the public domain on November 8, 1999. In a note distributed with the translation, he stated, “You may use it in any manner you wish: copy it, sell it, modify it, etc. You can't copyright it or prevent others from using it. A special thanks to Tye Rausch and Eve Engelbrite who helped tremendously on this project. You can't claim that you created it, because you didn't.”
