* Thou shalt commit adultery, Exodus 20:14.
* Know ye not that the unrighteous shall (omitted "not") inherit the kingdom of God, 1 Corinthians 6:9.
* Printers (instead of "Princes") have persecuted me without a cause, Psalm 119:161.
* Go and sin on (instead of "no") more, John 8:11.
* The fool hath said in his heart there is a (instead of "no") God, Psalm 14:1.
* Let the children first be killed (instead of "filled"), Mark 7:27.
* These are murderers (instead of "murmurers"), complainers, Jude 16.
* The murderer shall surely be put together (instead of "to death"), Numbers 25:18.
* He hath ears to ear (instead of "hear"), let him hear, Matthew 11:15.
