Why capitalise the beginning of chapters

Postby bibleprotector » 26 May 2014, 22:34

In the King James Bible, you will notice that the first word of a chapter is in capitals letters. Some people, when they take away the captials, make the first word in Psalm 90 "Lord", and some make it "LORD" (with small capitals ORD). Since the King James Bible normally makes the first word capital, or the first two words, if the first word is one character, this is why the electronic forms of the Pure Cambridge Edition have captial letters at those places.
