  • In 1631, the King's printers, Barker and Lucas, published a Bible with a small error: The word "not" was missing from the Seventh Commandment in Exodus 20:14. The commandment read, "Thou shalt commit adultery." Barker and Lucas, henceforth known as the printers of the Wicked Bible, were forced to pay a fine for the error, the cost of which (£300) effectively put them out of business.

    Eleven copies of this book--also known as the Adulterer's Bible, Adulterous Bible, or Sinner's Bible--are known to exist today.
