King James Bible: Pure words

The KIng James Bible is correctly based on the Textus Receptus family of manuscripts and codexes, knowing about the corrupted and Alexandrian renderings, corrupted by Gnostic and Greek-philosophical influence, and they indeed had grown up and considered the renderings in the previous English-language translations.

In fact, King James advocates like this passage, because it was the seventh major translation work into English:

6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
