Over many years I've come to prefer KJV for the reason I'll give now! I dont rule out other versions but prefer this one because: Genesis 7:1 " And the Lord said unto Noah, "Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation." In bible study we know that Christ is our ark of safety. In this verse it summons us to come into Christ. He is already there and bids us come to Him. This is so significant to me and offers such comfort and appears also in similar types and shadows throughout the OT. Over the years as new versions appear this has become my test. I always turn to this verse. In any other version it will say either, 'go into the ark', or 'enter the ark'. I guess finding anything other than "come into the ark, thou and thy family" is just such a different meaning that I then find it very hard to accept and stick with KJV! Please offer your comments and reasons!
