Very interesting. Does anyone where I can find biographical info on Jacob
Also, here is what I copied from
"In 1524, Jacob ben Hayyim published a printed text of the Hebrew Old
Testament, using a multitude of high quality manuscripts, including several
lists of Masoretic notes. This became a standard for printed Jewish Bibles.
Only in the last two hundred years has it been so accepted in the Christian
Is this true? Was the ben Hayyim text the standard for printed Jewish
Bibles. And was the ben Hayyim text not widely accepted in the Christian
world until ~1800? What is the relation between KJV and ben Hayyim?
