I have noticed in the majority of reading that I do whether it be in commentaries, bulletins, internet, or what ever, that the majority of authors will compare their version to the KJV but not to other versions. Why is this? I dont think I have ever read a book where the author says now the NASV has made a mistake here and it is translated properly in the NIV or the NIV has made an error here but the ESV has corrected it. Why is it that many authors make it a point to point out mistakes or errors in a KJV but will not in the NIV, NASV, ESV and so on. For instance, I was reading a commentary on the book of I John not too long ago and the author spent a paragraph talking about the mistranslation of a number of words in the bok of I John, and he only mentioned the KJV, but when I looked in the ASV and RV it had the same words, yet the author didnt mention that that the ASV and RV had the same "error". Just find it a little strange.
