According to a word count program that I wrote (I also used wc in Linux in case you don't trust my coding and it came up with the same answer) the King James Bible has 823,156 words.

This is based on a text file of the King James Bible I downloaded just to have a bunch of words around. I don't know if it's a completely accurate text file, but intuitively that number sounds about right. //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// You must consider different word counts are going to be found by different techniques. For example you can count these words here as different 'example' and example?' by means of punctuation. So I give you my account and my items that are counted at my web site so that you can see my work. The word count that I give is from counting all the words within the verses only and I include the words that use the apostrophe also in the word count. I provide a free download of the King James 1769 Bible ready to do a word count, which has the numbers taken out, the extra words in the Psalms introductions, and the new testament endings and count those words in another link at my site. I only mention my site because there you can see the work that is done to find the counts and provide a Bible ready to do a word count which also excludes the 'Pil-crow" signs which will mess up your word count because programs will count them as words if you do not delete them first. The punctuations are counted also and again you can use my download to do the punctuation counts. By using Microsoft word you can use the Replace with program and it will give you a count for anything that you input within a second...Any questions on these techniques please contact me - love and peace to you Carpus Tertius Book Chap Verse Words Genesis 50 1,533 38,262
