Reverting template to November 2016

I noticed this template is generally meant to be placed directly under the infobox of all English Bible translation articles. The template as it currently stands features a cover of the King James Version Bible. This change was made in December 2016. The King James Version translation is obviously historically significant, but with this template meant to be on *all* English Bible translation articles, I don't think it makes sense (particularly on modern translation articles) to have the King James Version featured. I feel it degrades the tidiness and flow of multiple articles.

I propose this template should revert to its November 2016 state, merging this with a minor category change made in 2020.

If there is no opposition to this proposition, I will soon create a new edit merging the content of the November 2016 edit and the latest edit (from 2020).

I have now made the change to the template. VistaSunset (talk) 05:28, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
