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 something 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 language? or do these concepts only appear when they got translated in English?(or into other modern languages spoken by other monarchy type society

Is it possible that concepts like "Kingdom of Heaven" teaches us to think of heaven and God in a hiearcry 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 haven't decided any conclusions and im not pushing any theory. i would just like to hear more, especially from somebody who speaks Hebrew.

Isaiah 11:12 (NKJV)
12 He will set up a banner for the nations, And will assemble the outcasts of Israel, And gather together the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth.

God's Banner is waving at you. Israel is back.

How do you account for the Palestinian nation, which also is the seed of Abraham and also inherited the land they are occupying now?

You are probably meaning the Greek New Testament .
A lot of European governing terms are copied from the Bible.
But Romans 13 might answer some of your question.

That is a falsehood, Mr Coaldigger. Palestine has lived there for over a thousand years.

What the King James Bible means is that the translation work was done under the authority (or OK) of the government of England, King James. Earlier translations were done "illegally". King James did not do the translating. The scholars were able to work without fear of persecution.

The OKJV is generally reliable and I've found it to be very accurate. Offhand, I can think of 2 mistranslations. Exodus 22:28 "Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy people". The word translated "gods" is Elohim and also means "judges". This translation would make more sense. Isaiah 7:14 "...Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Emanuel". The Hebrew word translated "virgin" is almah and it simply means a young woman. It has nothing to do with virginity. I've seen multitudes of scripture fulfilled and the OKJV is remarkably accurate. The only discrepancies I've found is that things are plural when they should be singular. Other than that, in English it is the word of the living God.

I wouldn't be surprised if King James tampered with it.

However, some people can't even obey the books that are in the KJV.

Don't you know that there were already Jews in Israel prior to 1948 too?

Jesus will lead those who believe in him into the bottomless pit of hell. Jesus has been reincarnated and is a thief and a liar. He will burst into flames when God returns from heaven on the Mount of Olives. Prophecy ends with Zechariah 14 and Jesus' followers will have the same fate as him. Jesus has sinned against the living God and he will not be forgiven. His new name is Bill Troetschel. Rev. 3:12. I call him Mr. Bill Treacherous.

The Palestinians are not the seed of Abraham. They are the Philistines who were also Canaanites and descended from Ham, the middle son of Noah. Genesis 10:14. From Mizraim (Egypt) came "Philistim".
