Lots Of Bibles

Have you ever spotted an unfortunate typing error on a Church website / notices / leaflet / powerpoint?

Well, according to wikipedia:

The Wicked Bible, sometimes called  or Sinners’ Bible, is the Bible published in 1631 by Robert Barker and Martin Lucas, the royal printers in London, which was meant to be a reprint of the King James Bible. The name is derived from a mistake made by the compositors: in the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:14), the word not in the sentence “Thou shalt not commit adultery” was omitted, thus changing the sentence into “Thou shalt commit adultery”.
