Did Shakespeare Write The Bible?
In this article, I will put forth new evidence for the theory that somehow William Shakespeare was involved in shaping part of the King James bible, did Shakespeare write the Bible and left clues in the text about this. There was a concept that maybe William Shakespeare was associated with shaping the King James Version of the bible.
I researched the matter, and I am not only convinced that the bard was indeed involved in that project, I believe I have uncovered even further evidence for this theory.
Evidence for William Shakespeare from psalm 46 we know the names of the translation scholars involved in the production of the King James version.

Still, it is possible they also consulted English stylists to help polish their raw and literal translations into good literary English because William Shakespeare was a writer of note. When King James commissioned an English translation of the bible for the church of England, he might plausibly have been welcomed to join assisting in shaping the text of that translation project. But he is not officially known to have participated.
Right here are the facts of the case that Shakespeare was, as a matter of fact, in some way involved. William Shakespeare was 46 years of age when the King James variation was still being translated. It was formally sent to printers on May 2, 1611. Shakespeare turned 47 in April of that year.
In the King James Version of Psalm 46, the 46th word from the start is shaken. The 46th word from the end is a spear. Again he was 46. This happens in psalm 46, and 46 words from the front and the back give us that playwright’s name. This would seem to be an impossible coincidence.
Now we need to acknowledge this only works if we don’t count the final word of the psalm Selah. Selah is some kind of Hebrew liturgical term. I have an article in which I present my theory that it is a musical term indicating an instrumental solo happening at that spot. It’s not part of the text of the psalm itself, but it is part of the Hebrew text attached to that psalm.
What about William? So after acquainting myself with the extraordinary coincidences I have described here, I got to thinking. What about the first name William? I couldn’t find anyone who had previously claimed Shakespeare may have encoded that name in the psalm as an additional clue that he had a hand in this project.
And also, when I looked at the psalm, the pieces of his first name are absolutely in the translation. Words will occur 3 times in verses 2 and two times in verse 10, and also words I appear in verse 10. So I did a count of the words, and something intriguing emerged.
The name William in psalm 46, if you count from the get-go of Psalm 46, words will certainly be first encountered at position 14. if you count from completion. This time around includes the liturgical word cella. The I of I happen at position 32. so right here’s the intriguing thing 14 plus 32 equates to 46.
Currently, keep in mind the whole shake and spear thing defined earlier relied on not counting the word vendor, so would the bard has actually inscribed his last name by not counting the cells.
But then encoding his first name needing to count that word.
The answer could be why not remember William Shakespeare may have been called in as an English language stylist to polish a raw translation into something more beautiful than those linguists alone could produce. He saw an opportunity to encode his name into the text. He knew that that committee would have final approval of whatever he gave them.
They would be expected to reject anything indelicate or imperfect in the wording, so he found a way to arrange the words in such a fashion that his last name was encoded with the number 46 without the seller. And the only way he saw to include his first name using two numbers add up to 46 but still constituting a beautiful piece of poetry meant the tiny variant of counting from the salah.
When he was done with the text, he smiled and thought to himself, close enough, someone someday will see these things. My experience of memorizing my lines for the role of Friar Lawrence in Romeo and Juliet left me amazed by the genius of William Shakespeare.
So I am not surprised that the bard found a way wanting to put his signature as it were on his work to encode not just his last name but also his first name into the text of the King James Version of Psalm 46.
