    As lonestarlib above said, you will have no legal issue with using the KJB. A style issue might arise, however, if you are quoting verses that are relatively obscure. You might want to have your character provide the reference, e.g., "Habakkuk chapter one, verse four, says . . . "


    Addendum: That shot in the dark made me look it up. Habakkuk 1:4 says:

    Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.

    Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.
