    Aren't they all just revisions, updated language of the Kjv bible?

    The NKJV, the Modern KJV by Jay Green, the 1994 KJ21, the 1998 Third Millennium Bible, and the 2000 KJ2000 edited by Robert Couric are all revisions of the KJV, but they are not identical to each other.

    The 1994 KJ21 and the 1998 Third Millennium Bible by the same publisher both claim only to update the archaic language and suggest that they are not a new translation. There are even a very few differences between those two updatings or revisions.

    The MKJV, KJ2000, and NKJV are both revisions of the KJV and translations of the same original language texts on which the KJV was based in the same way that the KJV itself was also both a revision of earlier pre-1611 English Bibles and a translation. Thus, they will revise or retranslate what they consider to be poor renderings or inaccurate renderings in the KJV.

    Which did a better job in revising the Kjv in your opinion?

    ALL of those except for NKJV would "pass" for a Kjv to KJVO?
