>>17179049
King hames version is the only accurate English translation. Other versions have some interesting translations in various passages but overall they are incorrect and at worse, some versions flat out deny that Jesus is God by removing passages, changing them or even placing a little note saying something along the lines of "many later versions were found to not contain this verse" which is total rubbish and should be treated as such.
>>
>>17179837
Furthermore....people incorrectly believe the "thee"s and "thou"s are part of old English but that was not the case nor the reason for their inclusion. These pronouns were chosen to best represent the case, tense and meaning of the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. It isn't to be poetic it is to differentiate between the pronouns
>>
>>17179280
That's a rather poor analogy, because the Early Modern English version of Shakespeare is the *original* text, whereas the King James is just one translation of the original Hebrew and Greek texts. And personally I'd say the best way to go, if you can be bothered to take the time and effort, is to read more than one translation simultaneously. It's like looking at a bunch of photographs of a 3-dimensional object from different angles to help you get a better idea of its shape.

Thee/thou/thine/thy/ye really were used in Early Modern English, though. They're second person nouns that all ended up being replaced by you in terms of use.

Ignore the christfags, the bible is bullshit. Nobody knows which books to add, which to remove, which were hebrew, etc ie the 2 books of Maccabees, are they hebrew? Is the first hebrew? Why aren't they included? There's also extended versions of other books that are added and removed at will. Where is Magdalen apart from sucking Jew cock? Apochrypha? Judas? ....

It's all fairytales woven and re-stitched with every generation.

King James removes God's personal name from the scriptures, replacing it with the titles, Lord or God. Hiding God's personal name is blasphemy.

1 Corinthians 10:25King James Version (KJV)

25 Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake:

Mind telling me what a "shambles" is any why someone would buy food there? KJV is archaic and outdated.
>>
The fact that the KJV uses the word “unicorn” nine times, and “satyr” twice (Isa. 13:21KJV; Isa. 34:14KJV), destroys its credibility , as unicorns and satyrs are regarded as a mythological creatures rather than the real animals which are mentioned in the original Hebrew Scriptures and in more contemporary translations.
>>
The translators of the KJV 1611 were untrained in Koine Greek.

Koine (“common”) Greek is the original language of the New Testament. Koine Greek had been a dead language for over a thousand years when the KJV was published for the first time in 1611. The translators of the KJV didn’t even know what Koine Greek was. Some people believed that the Greek language of the NT was a unique, Spirit-inspired dialect.[5] It was not until the late 1800s and during the 1900s, when tens of thousands of papyri documents were discovered – many written in Koine, that we could begin to understand the language more fully. Unlike the translators of the KJV, modern translators of the New Testament are scholars of Koine Greek.

The Geneva Bible. The Bible read during the time of William Shakespeare, John Bunyan, and John Milton. Also, it is the Bibles taken to America on the Mayflower.

>>17179049
KJV, because it's the only Bible that uses the textus receptus. The LXX manuscripts which all other bibles of today use are frauds.

Fuck me, either half of this thread is trolling or it's conclusive proof that /x/ doesn't know shit.

Read NIV (or RSV if you want some apocrypha) if you're anything other than a poet, other than the poetry there's basically no reason to read the KJV, even the Wikipeida article will tell you the translation is shit. I'm pretty sure at one point it even mentioned Easter in the OT and lets not talk about nephilim vs "giants".

>Hiding God's personal name is blasphemy.
So was speaking it, which is why we don't know the name precisely anymore.
But, fine, replace Adonai with YHWH. Which is superflous anyway, since we know it's based of "I am that which is" or however you wanna translate what God said to Moses.
Woop-ti-doo.

KJV fag here, it's not perfect but it is the least imperfect by a damn sight. All of it's errors are known and accounted for, you can't say the same for the others.

My favorite passage is Job 38-41.

Here's why:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSK9W5KNxUI

God asks Job 100 questions and Job doesn't answer a single one. But it's these questions could only be asked by the real, true, creator of the universe.

No primitive shepherds could have asked for instance about the springs beneath the sea, since people didn't even discover that there were springs beneath the sea until the 1970's. And that's only one question.

That board may have a been a more appropriate forum for this auestion, but eh. As much as I hate to say it, while the Bible may be of religious context, there is some pretty bizarre shit associated with it. I mean, talking snakes and water walking seem pretty paranormal to me.

King James generally sounds nicer, however it's the most literal translation of the greek, which means some lines will be very laboured, and the meaning can be lost due to nuance and figures of speech etc.
