Did King James introduce concepts into the Bible?

Is it possible the whole thing is a misinterpretation or has been altered to suit King James?

Before the King James Bible, he published somthing called "the divine rights of kings" , it explained how God wanted kings to rule the world

The idea of Kings having rights granted by God: is that based on Bible from hebrew launguage? or do these concepts only appear when they got translated in english?(or into other modern languages spoken by other monarchy type societys

Is it possible that concepts like "Kingdom of Heaven" teachs us to think of heaven and God in a heiracry monarchy sort of way?(read KingDOMINATION of heaven)

So are things really set out like that in hebrew bible
or do we have a kings version of the bible? one best translated to suit him/one designed to teach people to think of bible concepts in a monarchy sort of way.

the God a Lord? LandLords?
KingDomination of Heaven?

(Or did any of these words get twisted to what they now mean today, King Lord and KingDom,)

I ask these questions from an ignorant perspective, im trying to learn i havent decided any conclusions and im not pushing any theory. i would just like to hear more, especially from sombody who speaks hebrew.

Hebrew was a dead language when it was being translated.

Most of it is translated incorrectly, but the other bibles are all Jewed-out, especially the New International Version. KJB is still the most reliable.
