The KJV on Wordle

I was playing around on Wordle earlier, and I came up with this using the complete text (including preface and chapter headings) of the King James Bible. Click the image for a larger view:

Illustration of the 500 most used words in the KJV Bible

The 500 most used words are visualized, and I love how apparent it becomes, using this visualization, that the message of the Bible is between the Lord God and His people. I also appreciated this particular visualization due to the symbology of the Lord being the cornerstone thereof.

It’d be interesting to see how different Bible versions affect the visualization. I may have to experiment with that sometime, but if anyone beats me to it, let me know.
