I don't want to mislead anyone on using the KJV. I have copies and do use them. The KJV is a good translation as 90% is directly from Tyndale NT.
I would not attempt to persuade anyone from not using the KJV.

I was one of the ones who said "the lingo" is not what I am use to.

I can now say it is a preference and nothing more. Who am I to tell you what your preferences should be?

Deeper studies do reveal the subtle influence of the Latin text.
Apart from God I know nothing of these matters so I am simply sharing what He has shown me to anyone.

Another interesting tidbit.

By the year 400 the Gospel had been translated into over 500 languages.

The only language allowed was Latin by the year 600.

Zep 3:9
For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent.

Look through history and see where this occurred.

When the Gospel is in the language of the people....they can read and understand for themselves from God Himself in His WORD. John 6:45

I use 1560 Geneva in addition to the KJV among others.

God throughout His Word continually describes how he uses men who simply rely on Him and serve His purpose and not their own.

William Tyndale fits this profile as his NT is the foundation for the Geneva 1560 as well as the KJV.

Tyndale always had the Latin texts but strayed away from using their translation as it did not properly communicate the proper meaning to the common person.

Look at 1 Cor. 13:4 in the KJV and you will see a 'latin' influence in one particular word.

I charity you.
I love you.
Which one would you tell your Bride or Husband?

The dark ages coincided with the Latin being the language the Scripture was in but what did the people speak? Not Latin.

But a remnant was preserved.
City of Constantinople Spoke Greek from 300-1450 when they were run out by Muslims. Where did those with Greek manuscripts run to?
Geneva.

Hey James hope you have been doing well brother. Yeah I come on here because I love talking about the things of the Lord. Always willing to change my beliefs to a good biblical defense on a subject. Some things seem to be people's opinions and not God's Word. Even when I don't quote the scripture I try to incorporate my biblical understanding. I try to do this on all aspects of my life. You ever come across a good word to study let me know, as everything we have ever talked about has been a blessing to me. Take care and hope God blesses you Brother.
And to you Brother.....wine is a good one to study.

Amos 9:13 (KJV)
13 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.

remember what seed was?

Luke 8:11 (KJV)
11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

The plowman?

1 Corinthians 9:10 (KJV)
10 Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.

God defines His own terms in His Word.
God Bless

Good on You Kev.

Keep insisting on biblical definitions. If there are none.....then there are none.

If you have time....one neat thing to do is click on the eye glass beside the name and read their prior posts back 25 pages. Some will make you laugh...some will make you cry...some will make you mad.....and a few will teach using Scripture.
I'll leave it to you who you search out but I know there are always teachers lurking about.

Edit:
John 2:2 from the Geneva renders this...

Now when the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said unto him, They have no wine.

Which lines up with what William Tyndale penned in 1534 in his NT translation...which 90% of his translation is the KJV.

Do we say today if we run out of water bottles in the fridge to our wife.....Hey Honey...the water failed? Silly I know.
but the point I want to make is this....if in the Scripture it says...

1 Corinthians 6:12 (KJV)
12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

Why contend with His Word?

Jesus is the Word!:

Hebrews 10:4
For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
Jesus was the Lamb slain before the foundation of the World and the OT and NT are how God saved His people. It all points to Christ Jim. If those Dr's can't preach Jesus from the OT they don't have eyes to see.
Hope you are getting this Jim. Give me a Bible verse not a quote
Jesus is literally the Word made flesh ponder what that means

Amen!

Hebrews 1:1-3 (KJV)
1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

More good thoughts. I like your illustration of the Israelites coming out of Egypt. They were not all believers (Heb. 3:15-4:9). So what then? Is it referring to folks who cleaned up the outside of the cup but were inwardly full of ravening and wickedness? Believers in appearance only? This is what I tend to think, but why then are we told in 2Peter that they are "indeed escaped" when they indeed have not been.
I'm not trying to be argumentative. I want to be sure that the text is being imposed on my thoughts - not my thoughts on the text.
Imagine a TV preacher claiming error as truth as you flip thought the channels.....you keep flipping as the error registers as error to you...you indeed escaped. They were listening to a man......you knew it was error by The Word.

I was writing to James but it is an open invitation for anyone who wants to talk about this subject. I would like to hear from you Jim. But please use scripture and your own thoughts. This would be more beneficial for both you and me. So we can grow in our understanding.
The last posting got shut down(probably because of the heated debate). So was trying to continue about this subject in my post below.
This thread had two comments all being well over a day old so I picked this thread.
Hey Kev.

Last few days have been busy so sorry for the delay.

There is no better place to find an example of what you were referring to than in the Book of John. Read through this wonderful Gospel and understand that ...John 6:45...applies to all that are His from His Word.

Notice it is the only book that has Verily, Verily used back to back. There is a reason.

John 5:17 (KJV)
17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.


God Bless.

John for JESUS wrote:
1)Jeremiah 24:6‭-‬7 NKJV
Sounds like Israel to me.

2)I can't really say that English is any purer of a language than Spanish, French, Russian, or Chinese, etc. I believe Zeph 3:9 is talking about Hebrew.

1)Galatians 3:7 (KJV)
7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.

Romans 9:7 (KJV)
7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.

2)Zep 3:9 is talking about
1)Ancient Hebrew
2)Greek
3)English

These were the "common" languages of the people......from which to translate The Gospel.

The throne is in the third Heaven where Jesus is sitting at the right hand of the Father.

***You are right.....but there was a throne in the first H&E and second H&E as well.

See Isaiah 66:1 and the citation in Acts 7:49 and read the context in each....details in the context in Acts will tell you more about what Isaiah is speaking about. And vice versa.

Godspeed on your learning Bro.

J4J.....

Jeremiah 24:7
And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.

You said...The walls are part of the Temple where God dwells.

Note: Never take my word for anything....Always validate it with Scripture.

Acts 7:48 (KJV)
48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,

Acts 7:49 (KJV)
49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?

Kings need thrones...where is the throne? In the kingdom. What do kings make with His people? Covenants.

All those who belong to the King dwell with Him in His Kingdom AKA covenant.
Follow the citation back to Isaiah to get more info on this Kingdom\covenant...one in the same.

We have built up walls to keep God out naturally James, like mentioned in Heb. And only faith can take down those walls. Then Faith in the Gospel.

Have to tear down old walls, then new walls are built(built by "The Power There is a lot of verses about the imagery of walls.

Revelation 21:14
And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Well the 12 foundations have the names of the 12 apostles.
What do you know that has twelve apostles written in it as its foundation?

Word search foundation in the KJV and follow God.

The city is named here.

Revelation 21:2 (KJV)
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

God Bless

I forgot to add that Jesus is the stumbling stone. I see the imagery you are pointing out. Very beautiful how God's word is. Thanks for helping me out brother. When I get some time will post about the walls.
What you are finding out is that God is His own commentator on His Word.

Read Isaiah 2:22. This is where "our" philosophical, logical, scientific approach belongs.

God says He will teach us Himself. Only one place I know where His Word is.

John 6:45 (KJV)
45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

Isaiah 54:13 (KJV)
13 And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

Cross references are one of the valuable tools God has given to navigate where He has spoken on the same subject more than once but yet extra detail of the same exact topic of discussion at each point of reference helps you learn more about the other.

For example
In Acts 2:16 Peter cites Joel 2:28
Joel is the prophecy.....Acts is the fulfillment thereof. Read the context of each and you will learn more about both as they speak about the same thing.

God Bless

I came across another one of these I believe it has to do with walls. I need to study it some more but I have noticed this use when reading about strongholds in the bible.
Walls(Fence)(strongholds) come down one way only...
Hebrews 11:30 (KJV)
30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.

Stone is a figure for judgment.

J4J,

Isaiah 54:13 (KJV)
13 And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

God teaches some? No. ALL!

Zephaniah 3:9
9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent.

Is the Bible in your pure language of English? 1536 The NT was given. In 1560 The Geneva Bible OT and NT was given.

Jeremiah 24:7
And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.

Take traditions of men out of the picture. Forget Calvinism. Take the preaching of you favorite pastor and place him at Isa. 2:22 along with the rest of men and their vain words and consider The WORD of God that HE may....

Hebrews 4:12
12 .... piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

God Bless

Isaiah 47:13
13 Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.

Think those who write books about 4 blood moons has read this verse and understood?

Does God approve of man looking at the sky to look for literal signs?
No. God says man is wearied in his own counsel....as opposed to God's in His Word.

A work of God's hand or that of your own?

Jeremiah 33:25
25 Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night...

A common man would understand that when the sun was out it was time for WORK and night a time for REST.

Covenant of WORK
Covenant of REST

Penned is correct. God uses imagery throughout is Word to give a picture that one can remember quite easily. This has been lost but will be restored.

Sinai is a covanant of WORK.
Zion is a covenant of REST.

Galatians 4:24-26
24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother...

Any more interesting bible studies there brother?
Wonderful instruction by a Brother.
Heed Brother Observers advice!

Back to the smooth stones. You made mention of a verse...

1 Peter 2:4
To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,

A living stone.

Why is the term "living stone" used here?

Isaiah 57:6
6 Among the smooth stones of the stream is thy portion; they, they are thy lot: even to them hast thou poured a drink offering, thou hast offered a meat offering. Should I receive comfort in these?

Stones were always used by people for judgment. "stoning"

stones of the stream.

Matthew 3:6
6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

Who? John Baptist.

He preached to all of them.(Matt.3:8) Some confessed, repented. Some didn't.

Matthew 3:15
15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

Hebrews 2:17
17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren,

Galatians 4:4-5
4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
5 To redeem them..

Thanks James always learning and may God bless your path also Brother.Tks4Help

1) You got it!

2)Salvation

Romans 1:16 (KJV)
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Condemnation.

The law

Romans 4:15 (KJV)
15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression.

Here they are contrasted

Romans 8:2 (KJV)
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Kev,
Youre doing well.

One to look at...

"The law was written in tablets of stone whereas Grace through Faith was written in the stony hearts of man."

Deuteronomy 30:6
6 And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

Ezekiel 36:26
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

Jeremiah 31:33
33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Law of Faith. Romans 3:27

2 Corinthians 3:6
for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

2 Corinthians 3:7
7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones....

Hebrews 7:19
19 For the law made nothing perfect...

Romans 8:2
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

The law of Faith (Romans 3:27) free from death written in stones.

May God continue to open your eyes to His Word.
