Description
Four hundred years ago, the publication of the King James Bible enabled clergy and laymen alike to hear and read the Bible in their own language. Spoken, read, repeated, and committed to memory, words and phrases from the King James soon became established as part of the common language. As a result, the English we speak today is heavily seasoned with these expressions, although some of the meanings have become twisted over time. Reference editor and language consultant Martin Manser explores the original and current meanings of such figures of speech as pearls before swine, a drop in the bucket, the powers that be, wheels within wheels, and a wolf in sheep's clothing.
