Revised English Bible of 1877

This was revised by F.W. Gotch (Genesis to Deuteronomy), Benjamin Davies (remainder of the Old Testament: Joshua to Malachi), G.A. Jacob, and Samuel G. Green (New Testament), with preface by J.G. (Joseph Gurney).
"The design of the present work, so far as regards the revision, is to correct what may be considered indisputable errors and inadequate renderings in our present English Bible; and in the New Testament to give also the more important emendations of the text which have been adopted by the best Editors of the Greek Testament." - from the Preface.
