Ted, you still didn't notice that 'Bible' must be capitalised in this context or that GoesStation corrected your misuse of 'Old English'. The phrase you need is Early Modern English.

Example of Old English

The Lord's Prayer (Our Father)
Fæder ure
ðu ðe eart on heofenum
si ðin nama gehalgod
to-becume ðin rice
geweorþe ðin willa on eorðan swa swa on heofenum.
Urne ge dæghwamlican hlaf syle us to-deag
and forgyf us ure gyltas
swa swa we forgifaþ urum gyltendum
ane ne gelæde ðu us on costnunge
ac alys us of yfle.

There was so much that needed to be corrected with the post I deleted that it would have been distinctly misleading for the OP.

The same thing will probably happen again if you jump in prematurely and incorrectly.
