Is There A Bible That Says Thou Shalt Commit Adultery?

‘The typographical error.’

The Bible you are referring to is known as “The Wicked Bible” or “The Sinners Bible.” It was a 1631 reprinting of the Authorized King James Bible first printed in 1611. The Bible was printed by the Kings Printing House under the direction of Head Printer Robert Barker.

Once the mistake was found, the 1000 Bibles in that print run were collected and burned. Eleven survived. One can be seen in The Living Word National Bible Museum in Branson, MO, USA.

Robert Barker and a man named Lucas were fined a total of £300. Lucas just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time as he was acting as executor for the estate of a man who had invested in the printing.
