Bible Versions

​Personally I really like the KJV of the Bible and, even though English is not my mother tongue, I understand most of its words and their meaning. I prefer the KJV-ish words and use this Bible during my personal devotional time. I like to see a ye instead of a you on the page if that is what the text needs to say (ye = plural form of you). Coming from a German background this makes much more sense to me. Perhaps because I never had any dislike toward the old Lutheran Bible which also contains words that might sound strange to some (younger) readers.

I’ll have to admit that I’m a defender of the Textus Receptus(TR) which, again, leads me back to the KJV. Most modern versions are using the Nestle Aland and other source texts for the New Testament. I love to read the KJV, for its beauty and for its source text. However, I’m using a modern version (NKJV) on my blog to draw people to the Word and so that they will pick up their Bibles and read.
