What is the purpose of translation? So we can have a Bible that we exalt and worship? KJ Version means just that. The whole purpose of a translation is to make the Word of God clear, while some think it's the dictionaries job to make the Word of God clear! A challenge for the KJVO's:To those who argue for retaining the beauty and lofty language of the KJV, in spite of it's many archaic words, go out right now on the street, where many people are gathered together and start to speak in the same language as the KJV (17th Century English), go ahead, I dare you! Of course you probably would not do so, because you don't want to sound silly! But you expect God to sound this way, don't you?!?!? Fact: The Greek N.T. as some have pointed out, was written in Koine, not Attic (spell?). Even the Word Incarnate dwelt among men, which in a sense is the same principle, that the Word was written for humanity, not the other way around. Post below your thoughts, opinions, and corrections, please?
