KJV and NKJV are my staples. I much prefer actual translations versus transliterations even though they may be easier to read, as I think they hold closer to the truths and meanings that God wants us to base our belief upon. That being said, there are some (many) Greek and Hebrew words for which there are not adequate English equivalents and therein lies the value of using multiple translations and other study texts to better understand what the original scripts said.

thats why we have to keep reading it and studying it,I don't think we wil never understand it completely,if we will use all of our study referances and keep reading it we will always get something differant out of it every time.JOHN3:16 I don't understand it but it makes an empty man full,a cold boy warm and lost boy saved. Just keep reading it is the main thing and he will show you the blessings of it .

I use NKJV and HCST. Sometimes one is clearer, sometimes the other.

I use a New Inductive Study Bible in addition to participating in Precept. (www.precept.org) It is amazing to learn that I don't know what I don't know and I don't know as much as I should \:\)

I encourage everyone, believers and non-believers, to read the book "Misquoting Jesus - the Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why" by Bart D. Ehrman.

King James here. Be very careful with new modern translations...they can take something and make it mean something totally different and you will miss a good blessing because of it.


I'd like to point out that one could easily say the same thing about the KJ version. It was the "modern translation" of its time.


Yup, the original Bible was in Hebrew and Aramaic, and then Greek. There was a lot of paganism in the greek world and some of the translations show that. (even in the KJV). Read which ever translation you like but then study it back to its source so you can grasp a better understanding.
