1611 King James Bible

"The great debt of the English speaking peoples everywhere is to the translation of the Bible that we all know ... the Bible as it was put forth in English three centuries ago. No other book of any kind ever written in English, perhaps no other book ever written in any other tongue has ever so affected the whole life of a people as this Authorized Version of the Scriptures has affected the life of the English speaking peoples."
