Who has made a switch from the KJV to another translation, OR from another translation to the KJV? What was the result? What version did you switch to/from? What was your purpose in switching? I started out with the NIV, then switched to the NASB, and then the NKJV, and then finally switched to the KJV. I wanted a translation more literal then the NIV, the NIV was like reading a newspaper to me; so I went to the NASB and the NKJV but didn't like the way they read [particularly the NKJV]; I ended up with the KJV because I like the literal translation and the beauty of the language.
