The KJV uses antiquated language such as the above. But this thread has nothing to do with the Bible versions forum. I will quote from the NIV because it is plain-speaking. I will ask each of you to evaluate if, in these passages, the object is everyone who has and shall live --or a limited number of people. I will give some snips --the entire verse is not necessary to convey what I am dealing with. Let's go to the Gospels first. Matt. 10:22: You will be hated by everyone because of me... Matt. 21:26 : ...we are afraid of the people, for they they all hold that John was a prophet. Matt. 26:33 : ...even if all fall away on account of you, I never will. Mark 1:37 : ...Everyone is looking for you! Mark 5:20 : ... And all the people were amazed. Mark 13:13 : Everyone will hate you because of me... Luke 3:15 : ... were all wondering in their hearts if John might possibly be the Messiah Luke 6:26 : Woe to you when everyone speaks well of you... Luke 21:17 : Everyone will hate you because of me. John 1:7 : ...so that through him all might believe. John 3:26 : ...everyone is going to him.
