There are different spellings of this word, so it is fine in this module.

Sorry, I meant to edit this but had to wait til the POST was approved.

This was in the authorized KJV Module. I checked against E-Sword and a printed copy.
When I read the verse this morn for devotions, the word popped out as not spelled right.

Some folks I know are verbal purists and though the word MAY be spelled in other ways, I hold to my POST, in this module - verse, it is misspelled.

But thanks anyway.

That is the correct spelling as found in the 1769 KJV edition and the circa 1900 KJV Cambridge edition.

There seems to be a regular update on the KJV text. When I checked on the Trinitarian Bible Society website, they are using a 2019.1.10 date AV text on their online Bible that's published on 2019.10.15. KJV Bibles recently published have "ankle" instead of "ancle" based on what's out there in the internet and several KJV books I have. So, its not clear when or how much changes they did with the spellings in the past century, but this is one good example of those.

It's good, though, to have the original version of 1611 as a point of reference which uses "ancle."
