    The Kjv itself was based upon how much of that translation. was more than 50 %?

    No. First New Testament printed in English. First New Testament translated from the original Greek. The foundation of English Bibles up until WW2 and beyond.

    Yes, way more than 50%. The Gospels were taken almost word for word into the KJV.

    Have to admit thought that bible would be very hard to read today, much less understand!

    No, it is very easy. It just takes a little getting used to. When i first saw it I didnt think I could read it either. But a few practice sessions and you will read it just fine. Since you are familiar with the KJV and Geneva you are already familiar with this one as well. You will get use to the different shaped letters. Then the next thing you know you will be reading it like the back of your hand.

    Then you should reject the AV1611, as it had plenty of marginal notes & footnotes.

    First, the KJV renders pais as "servant" 10 times, as compared to "son" twice.

    There's a question of whether the Greek there is in the TR or not.

    The KJVO myth remains as false as ever. While the NKJV isn't perfect, it has far-fewer goofs & booboos than the KJV, and, it's in OUR English.

    The KJVOs who are in thrall to the KJVO myth won't accept any other version, PERIOD.
