    Shakespeare, Elizabethan, King James...

    What's the different between these versions of old English: Shakespearean, Elizabethan, and the one used in the King James Bible?

    Nothing really- they're all from about the same time. James I was the king directly after Elizabeth and Shakespeare lived and wrote in both monarchs' reigns. The Bible and Shakespeare both had a considerable influence on the language.
