King James 2000, or KJ2000, is an update of the King James Version (KJV) intended for use in the 21st century. KJ2000 is copyright 2000, but may be freely copied for non-commercial use only.

The preface of KJ2000 reads

The intent of King James 2000 is to keep every KJV word the same, unless a misunderstanding or a gross word order "error" (in today's usage) must be averted. All punctuation is left the same, including omission of quotation marks, in order to keep the rhythm and pattern of KJV memorization intact. Even the interpolative KJV words (normally in italics) are kept the same if possible. No "corrections" or "textual considerations" are taken into account, since the King James 2000 intent is to preserve the KJV "as is," except for truly necessary changes. Pronouns addressing Deity are not set apart by capitalization, but are kept just as found in the KJV, with lower case letters (neither is distinction made in the original languages).
