Modern Bible Misprints

Even though the printing press has enabled us to copy texts much more faithfully than ancient scribes could achieve, even technology perpetrates mistakes...
Thou shalt commit adultery.
--The "Wicked" Bible, 1631

The fool hath said in his heart there is a God.
--The "Fool" Bible, 1763

Blessed are the placemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.
--The "Placemakers" Bible, Geneva Bible, 1562
