These Bibles claim to have been translated with the help of the Spirit World, a big No-No for many Christians:

The New Testament of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as Revised and Corrected by The Spirits, by Leonard Thorn 1861

The Holy Scriptures, Containing the Old and New Testaments, An Inspired Revision of the Authorized Version, by Joseph Smith 1867

The New Testament Revised and Translated, by A. S. Worrell 1904
“...the writer, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit (as he believes), undertook the immensely responsible task of furnishing to the public, a correct and literal translation of these Scriptures, put up in good style, with brief notes designed to help the ordinary Christian, who has no knowledge of the original Greek.”

Revealed Translation of John's Revelation Given By Jesus Christ to Archie Inger 1908

In 1953 Church-goers in Rocky Mount, North Carolina burned copies of the Revised Standard Version because it had removed the word "virgin" from Isaiah 7:14, but that Bible was not the first one. Included on this disk you have:

In the early 18th Century John Mill produced a Biblical Text that announced 30,000 variants in the Bible.

Has single word translations, like this following of Hades on p.91:"represents the Hebrew sheol, 'the grave' (e.g. Gen. xxxvii. 35), a very negative word, 'the place not of the living but of the dead'. It is often used locally as the opposite of 'heaven', e.g. Job xi. 8, and cf. Matt. xi. 23; Luke x. 15. Neither it, nor hades, denotes a place of punishment; even in Luke xvi. 23 'in hell he lift up his eyes', the marked addition of the words UPARCWN EN BASANOIS shews that the idea of torment is in no way involved in the word."
