    Legal question about King James Bible

    I am a new author from Canada and just completed a science fiction novel. One of my characters is a Christian minister from a non-disclosed Christian sect. From time to time, this character quotes from the King James Version of the bible. I used the website to get the exact words.

    I know that I could use this bible version royalty free from the FAQ section, but I’m not clear on some matters.

    Do I need to mention after each verse quoted that it is taken from the King James Bible?

    Should I give credit in the novel that all bible quotes are taken from the King James Bible?

    How do I keep my novel legal?
