    that they had done the best they could,been as diligent as they were able but were sure their version was not without error(hence the several editions of the KJV).They claimed no inpiration in thier interpetation.Why can't we take them at thier own word and trust what they said of thier own work? :confused:

    Why can't the KJVOs do that? Because it would run contrary to their myth. After all, they can't even tell us by whose authority they believe & spread their myth.

    They also said that variety of translations was profitable for making sense of the scriptures. Good luck with getting any "profitable" response from the kjvo crowd. I predict the usual retoric of twisting scripture to assume it is talking about the kjv. Doubt I will be proven wrong. :rolleyes:

    Of course the KJVOs believe the variety of Scriptures don't apply to any other bible made after 1881.
    Just the various TRs.

    Interestingly, KJVO's are the only ones who believe the KJV translators were wrong.

    Well, the KJV translators
    were translators, not prophets. So they
    couldn't forsee that later they
    would be deified (to throw MV-supporters
    off the track when they mentioned that
    most versions of the KJV the re-translator,
    ah, ur, well, the re-spellers are totally
    unknown).

    AV1611 translators "deified". I like that.

    Could someone share a link of bio's of the fabulous 47 who revised the Bishop's Bible and translated the Hebrew/Greek?

    Think it is about time we started a thread on these great godlike men who gave us this INERRANT INSPIRED Word in English!

    I can't beleive how easy it is to find information on the original KJV and what the TRANSLATORS said themselves,12 page explanation of thier work.This should have been left in the front of every KJV Bible sold up to this moment.If it were done the KJVO controversy would not exist.
    You can go to: http://basfawlty/bibtabl.htm
    http://www.ccel.org/bible/kjv/preface/addendum.htm
    http://www.communitybaptistchurch.com/library/kjv_preface.html
    I could go on and on with sites...let me make it easy JUST type kjv 1611 translators..in your search window & watch the info spill out pro and con. There is way to much info to put on in this discussion forum.

    Anything with man's hands on it is not pure. We are all capable of reading something and each person would have their own view. My husband is KJV only and I go to a church with that view. I never discuss this with my husband. But, I do have other versions in my home. Had them before we meet. Will have them still. I will read them to learn more about the scripture. But, I know when one is not a good version. I found one the other day that was a devotional Bible, the devotional part was great but oh the translation was off. It said Joseph divorced Mary. That is not what I have read in any of my versions.
    People the translators interpeted the Greek and Hebrew Bible. Then on the flip side, it is the best we have. So study it and the Lord will guide us right. May God Bless you all and your work. Hope my words did not upset anyone. But, it is my view and we all have one and is entitled to one. I'm just thankful I have a Bible to read. Thanks to King James.

    The KJVO's equate The KJV translators with John the baptist. John denied he was the one sent from God to prepare the way for Jesus the Messiah even though he was. Therefore, even though the KJV translators deny any form of inspiration, they were inspired.

    Personally I'de rather take their word for it.

    Proof: since some of the original translators recognized their work had errors and made the first revision in 1613 disproves the "re-inspiration" theory (unless the Holy Spirit can make or allow mistakes).

    I agree. I was just pointing out what I read on some KJVO Websites.

    Are you saying the KJVO's are ignorant or they have become a god to themselves?

    But who can say with any veracity or authority that ONLY the AV translators alone, of all the English Bible translators, were inspired?

    Nobody. Which is why I read a variety of English translations. After all it is what the KJV translators said to do.

    So do I-old and new versions. And that's obviously what the AV translators did-even the "meanest" of translations.
