kjv” is a command-line tool that allows you to view the text of the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible right on your Linux or Unix-like desktop. The KJV is an English translation of the Bible that was first published in 1611, and is widely considered to be one of the most important and influential translations of the Bible in the English language.
The kjv tool provides a simple way to view the text of the KJV on your Linux or Unix-like desktop, without the need to use a separate application or web browser. It is a command-line tool that can be run from the terminal, and it will output the text of the chosen scripture. It can be used to search for specific verse or passage and also can be used to display the entire chapter or book.
It is useful for Christians who want to have easy access to the KJV of the Bible on their Linux or Unix-like desktop, as well as for developers who want to create scripts that incorporate the text of the KJV.
It’s important to note that “kjv” is a third-party tool and it may not be supported on all distributions. Also, it is only providing the King James Version of the Bible and not other versions.
