WEIGH IN

 

 

We humans have our scale

 

Which we use, without fail,

 

And KNOW that it is right.

 

But God has the final say,

 

In what things really weigh,

 

Weigh, in His all-wise sight.

The NIV preface states a “Concern for clear and natural English…contemporary but not dated.” Glance at a few of these “clear” words compared to the AV’s “archaic” words.

NIV (left)                                                  AV (right)
Gen 6.4 The Nephilim were on the earth…/

                                        There were giants in the earth

1Ch 29.19 …build the palatial structure…/

                                                               …build the palace

Ezr 8.36 …to the royal -satraps… /

                                              …unto the king’s lieutenants

Psa 122.7 …citadels…/          …palaces…”

“Hello?”

E. E. E.

 

For centuries paper and ink,

Have been a blessing or have caused a “stink.”

We’ve not failed to use those two,

Because the devil used them too.

Now the blog, email – the “eword”

Are new ways to share God’s Sword

Media has caused a change,

Evangelism has a greater range.

Translation Trouble – 1Co 5.4                

AV “In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ

NASB – In the name of our Lord Jesus ____ when you are assembled, and I with you in spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus ____

In both cases the “Christ” is omitted.

Why do the translators of the NASB

dislike “Christ” His Divine name?

Two important observations about those who attack the

AV because it is associated with King James. 

 

 

1) All history written by men (this excludes the Bible)

is subjective.  If anything, as printing has become

easier, it is easier for men to re-write history,

trimming and tailoring to suit the “politically

correct” views of modernity.  Discernment demands

that we not accept all as “Christian” which may be

so labeled.  NOR accept Mr. X as a vile sinner, like

those so living, want to portray him.  Some wicked

sinners may try to bolster their ranks by claiming

King James as one of them – we have every right

to question that.

 

2) More importantly, King James (even if he were

wicked) was NOT a translator. That is very important.

King Herod lacked the intestinal fortitude to keep

John the Baptist alive but he believed in John’s

“religion” and feared him.  Many a modern sinner

(the reader may know one) has great respect for

the Bible – more than some translators?  Who

can prove that King James did not get the best

Bible-believing scholars of his kingdom to handle

putting God’s Word into English?   Take time to

research (I have done some) the men thus chosen.

Just because IT is state-legalized

 

 

 

is no sign IT is God-recognized.

Some readers with some education may think I’m

being unnecessarily unkind against modern

translations (mis-translations) of the Bible. 

Backers of the AV (a.k.a. KJV) did not start this.

Most (if not ALL) of the translators were directly or

indirectly influenced by Hort and Westcott

(men with questionable backgrounds) and

have purposely chosen to attack – that is a correct

choice of words – the standard against which other

Bibles are checked – the Authorized Version. 

 

One motive cannot be assigned to ALL translators

or the misguided men who swallow their productions.

Not any ONE motive but assuredly there IS a motive

behind each writer/printer of such translations and

a motive behind each user.  Think (you know

t-h-i-m-k  🙂 ).  Why, really WHY have these

chosen to reject the grandest Bible of centuries,

the Premiere work which has seen more saved

than any other English Bible?  

There is probably more to this than you may think.
