The Bible of King James

But this cowboy life was empty. He was looking for meaning, and one day in the drunk tank in a jail in Montana, he found himself reading the pages of the Bible. "I looked at that book in jail, and I saw then that He'd established me a house in heaven … He came into my heart."

The heads around the preacher go down, and the words he whispers, which the rodeo riders listen to in such earnestness, are not from the American West: They are from England, translated 400 years ago by a team of black-gowned clergymen who would have been as much at home in this world of swells and saddles, pearl-button shirts and big-fringed chaps as one of these cowboys on a Milanese catwalk. "Second Corinthians 5. 'Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.'" ...

Well, Ladybug, I guess no one's forcing you to buy it. There are a few study Bibles out there, such as the Ryrie one, which you can get in the KJV, ESV, and Ryrie Study Bible - NAS and not just from the site mentioned here. My church wouldn't have the KJV version in it's store. The KJV most assuredly should be in a study Bible format, since a lot of Elizabethan words and phrases have to be translated into modern English. I believe Amazon has some used one in good condition for around $9-11 or so?

I find it very disturbing when a man puts his name on a bible and sells it for $$. MacArthur can keep his study bible! I've found some of his teachings and his commentary to be very troubling.

I always said John U.K., the KJV is literary masterpiece of the first caliber, Part II: The Reign of the King James (The Era of Elegance), but certainly not when it comes to accuracy Part III: From the KJV to the RV (from Elegance to Accuracy). So, John U.K., I can agree with you in denotation, but certainly not in connotation.

The NKJV keeps the literary attributes of the KJV, but it is in good contemporary English, and more accurate--if the marginal notes are studied, as was pointed out in the commentary, New King James Version (NKJV Bible). So, English readers don't have to learn a foreign language (Elizabethan) to have a pleasurable version of the Bible to read.

By the way, The MacArthur Study Bible, NKJV: Revised & Updated Edition Hardcover, Only $24.99 (not counting shipping) Looks like a good deal to me. You can use it to translate the KJV for that matter.

What a wonderful article to appear in the National Geographic magazine. The King James Bible is unique among Bibles, and always will be.

Well, I'm glad you noticed user, but supporting hoary bombast won't make it any better since the Bible is to be understandable. Apparently many use the KJV as a mantra, since a lot of it is gibberish to the modern speaker. I --almost-- always have had kind words for New King James Version, except the greatest accuracy of translation is found in what are the Marginal notes rather than the text itself. Anyway,

Gentlemen: and also Tony Cisneros, I will just point out what Doug Kutilek said, Restating The Obvious About Bible Translations. A good commentary.

Actually, I just happen to find the my NGS copy of that article today, and read the article! It is actually quite good. It gets a little syrupy in emoting about the KJV, admittedly something the NGS rarely if ever it does, about religion; but it shows how legalists love the KJV and even non-Christians like those of the Rastafari movement follow the KJV "religiously." So, go to your local public library and look over the copy of December 2011 article, "King James Bible, Making of Masterpiece" You really can't miss it, since it is obvious from the front cover. Gasp! KJV types should appreciate my Good Friday gift of saying something nice about the AV! The article is well worth reading.

CAS: I THIRD The Conviction THE KING JAMES BIBLE Is NOT That Difficult To Read Even For Most ENGLISH As A SECOND, & THIRD, Language Speakers In OUR Churches TODAY !

TRUE, EVEN THOUGH THE SATANIC+VATICAN "JESUITS" SUCCESSFULLY INFILTRATED THE TRANSLATING PROCESS OF THE HISTORIC "KING JAMES VERSION" OF THE HISTORIC AUTHORIZED TEXTUS-RECEPTUS 66-BOOKED HOLY BIBLE--TO CAUSE THE ORIGINAL KJV-1611-FIRST-EDITION TO INCLUDE THE 6-BOOKS OF THE
NON-HOLY-SPIRIT-INSPIRED "APOCRYPHA":

THE PURITAN-PROTESTANTS WHO TRANSLATED THE 1611-KJV KNEW FULL WELL "THERE [WERE] CERTAIN MEN CREPT IN UNAWARES, WHO WERE BEFORE OF OLD ORDAINED TO THIS CONDEMNATION (OF ADDING 6-EXTRA-BOOKS TO THE ALREADY COMPLETED 66-BOOKED TEXTUS-RECEPTUS HOLY-BIBLE-CANON), UNGODLY MEN (ALA THE SATANIC+VATICAN 'JESUITS' & ETC.)";

SO, SUCCEEDING GENERATIONS OF PURITAN-PROTESTANTS & HISTORIC BIBLICAL-LITERALISTS JUSTLY REMOVED THE SATANIC+VATICAN INFILTRATED 6-APOCRYPHAL-BOOKS:

LEAVING THE PRESENT 66-BOOKED KING JAMES BIBLE INTACT; IN ITS HISTORIC TEXTUS-RECEPTUS, PROTESTANT &
ROMAN-"CATHOLIC"-REFORMATION CANONAL STATE !

I've known tons of children who've read the King James Bible and I've never heard even one say it's difficult to understand.

How did we end up with adults who are apparently too stupid to comprehend it? One man I know even goes so far as to literally blaspheme God's Word because he's incapable of understanding it.

Being a life member of NGS, I will enjoy seeing the article in the magazin
