    The book of Matthew:

    Chapter 1: 1769 deletes one word.

    1611- 524 words
    1769- 523 words

    Chapter 2: 1769 adds one word.

    1611- 664 words
    1769- 665 words

    Chapter 3: 100%

    1611- 421 words
    1769- 421 words

    Chapter 4: 1769 deletes two words.

    1611- 609 words
    1769- 607 words

    Chapter 5: 1769 adds one word.

    1611- 1176 words
    1769- 1177 words

    Chapter 6: 100%

    1611- 862 words
    1769- 862 words

    Chapter 7: 1769 adds three words.

    1611- 681 words
    1769- 684 words

    Chapter 8: 100%

    1611- 841 words
    1769 -841 words

    Chapter 9: 1769 deletes two words.

    1611- 915 words
    1769- 913 words

    Chapter 10: 100%

    1611- 1003 words
    1769- 1003 words

    This comparison was done using e-Sword by simply copying the 1611 chapter to Word and doing a word count and comparing it to the 1769 KJV using the same methods.

    Example:

    1611-

    Mat 1:1 The booke of the generation of Iesus Christ, the sonne of Dauid, the sonne of Abraham.
    Mat 1:2 Abraham begate Isaac, and Isaac begate Iacob, and Iacob begate Iudas and his brethren.

    1769-

    Mat 1:1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
    Mat 1:2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;


    I posted this just to prove a point to our KJVO friends. I’m curious to see how many excuses are given to pardon the 1769 KJV for changing the AV1611.

    Things that are different are not the same. How many additions and deletions must be made before a translation is considered suspect using KJVO test methods?

    Does the KJVO interpretation of Psalm 12:6-7 apply to the 1611 vs. 1769 controversy?

    Does this verse apply?

    Mat 5:18 For verily I say vnto you, Till heauen and earth passe, one iote or one title, shall in no wise passe from the law, till all be fulfilled. -1611KJV

    Now keep in mind that I am using KJVO definitions and methods used to make MV’s suspect of KJVO conspiracy theories and guess work. Please note that I am simply applying KJVOism to the AV1611 vs. 1769KJV.

    Some may find this a bitter pill to swallow in that it exposes a double standard that exist in KJVOism.

    What we need is an 'e' counters.
    I'm suree there are lots of missing 'e's
    going from KJV1611 to KJV1679. Where have
    all those silent 'e's gone.

    Sing to the to tune of "where have
    all the flowers gone?"

    Where have all the silent 'e's gone?
    Long time passing.

    Last time I mentioned this to my KJVO neighbour, he said it was because "The Holy Sprit needed to sift the word" because of the translation errors. He still wont answer my question about why it needed to be sifted several times!

    Or the multitudes of ADDITIONS found in some of yesterday's Bibles?

    There's an equal case for BOTH.

    Hello Friends!

    New to posting on the board. I have been a reader of the forums for a long time and have recently decided to get involved. I must say I have been truly blessed by the spirited debate and will be looking forward to participating myself.

    I must say that with regard to the issue at hand, it seems as though you are beating a dead horse. I have watched your posts in other topics about this issue and I think you are not getting your desired response because men with such beliefs as "paidagogos" have answered your question, however you will never accept such an answer because of your premise.

    The gentleman clearly made the case that the differences in the A.V. are of no consequence to the text whatsoever. For even those who would fall into your side of the issue have conceded this long ago. (see the "Committee on versions to the Board of Managers," American Bible Society, 1852)

    The real issue in this debate is the text source...more to come...

    Thanks for reading,
    MHG

    I have yet to get a real answer that does not involve a double standard.

    Why is it ok for Blaney to add/subtract and/or change the AV1611 but it’s not ok to update the KJV today?

    Things that are different are not the same and two different things can not be perfect according to KJVO law.

    The real issue in this debate is the text source...more to come...

    If that is truly the case then they should support correcting the KJV by changing Easter to Passover and applying the Granville Shape rule to 2 Peter 1:1.

    KJVOism is not about the text source. That is a smoke screen. If this was the case then the NKJV would be embraced with open arms by KJVOist who apply a mystic feel to the TR.


    Thanks for your reply.

    Hi pastor, nice to meet you. It might be helpful for those other posters if you wouldn't mind telling us exactly where you stand in the KJV debate. Do you believe the KJV to be without any error whatsoever? Do you believe other translations are as good? Just where do you stack up on the KJV chart.

    You will find a good thread (somewhere, I'll see if I can find it and point you to it) where you can pick a number defining your level of belief all the way from the KJV is divinely transcribed and is better than its Greek or Hebrew sources, to its a good translation, but not my favorite.

    You don't have to do this, but its just a thought.

    Yet another set of questions that will go unanswered by the KJVO Camp.

    For those who are truly interested, there is now a 1611 KJV available at StudyLight. And since those of the KJVO camp are not able to answer questions about the differences you can do a parallel comparison between the 1611 KJV and a MV KJV to see for yourself how they differ.
