    Since other posts have noted the difference between the KJV and the KJB I thought I'd throw this into the mix.

    A NEW version: the NASV. :eek:

    Can anyone identify this well known verse from Mark?

    Ða eode he and his leorning-cnihtas on ðæt
    castel Cesareæ Philippi. And he on wege his
    leorning-cnihtas ahsode, Hwæt secgaþ men ðæt ic
    sy?
    Ða andswarodon hi, Sume, Iohannem ðone
    Fulluhtere; sume, Heliam; sume, sumne of ðam
    witegum.
    Ða cwæþ he, Hwæt secge ge ðæt ic sy?
    Ða andswarode Petrus him, and cwæþ, Ðu eart
    Crist.

    New Anglo-Saxon Version :D

    Mar 8:27 And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am?
    Mar 8:28 And they answered, John the Baptist: but some say, Elijah; and others, One of the prophets.
    Mar 8:29 And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.


    (Good post though :) )

    Tolkien was a enthralled with the Middle English language, which was just a bit later than Old English.

    Middle earth was the time of the hobbits.

    Interesting translation of Genesis 1

    Many versions have translated the Hebrew (tohu /bohu) as "without form and void", following the most familiar rendering of the KJV.

    There are good arguments for the rendering in Old English.

    “idel ond æmti” (idle and empty)

    The New Anglo-Saxon Version is a Bible with history.
    Anyone who chooses to reads those new-fangled modern English (per-)versions, (like the Tyndale's Bible or The Great Bible), are lazy sluggards, knowing not the Bible of our fathers.

    When a NASV reader goes before God on that Great Day of Judgment, he will stand proud and tall and boldly proclaim to his Creator, "I was right!"
