I am King James preferred, but not King James only. The bible came to us, not only in English or in the Spanish language?

To me, King James only means, I only read the King James Bible, I only read books that use the KJ scripture as references, I only listen to preachers who use the KJ and if I hear the phrase "this is better translated as"  I get up and leave.

I'm Jesus Christ preferred. Though I leave my options open. Especially when I don't like what he says.

KJVO is one who holds to the KJV 1611 (Authorized Version) only, for the English speaking peoples of the world.  Since I speak the English language only, that would be me.  :)

Not going to get into a drawn out discussion, but:

 

KJV (English)

RVG (Spanish) (though I do have an 1865 revision of the 1602)

Luther (German)

Synodal (Russian)

The Old Testament was written in Hebrew, the whole world didn't know Hebrew.  The New Testament was given to the Jews and the Gentiles in the Greek.  The whole world didn't know Greek but it was the universal language of the day.  Then the Lord chose to preserve His Word in the English and did so in the King James Bible.  The English is the universal language of the world today.

 

So, if you want God's Word in your native tongue, should it be translated from the Received Text or from the King James Bible?

Today we must say, The Original KJ version.

I think that might be confusing, TGL, as there are no originals.  It might be better to say the KJV 1611 (Authorized Version) or just KJ (Authorized Version).  

At least that is what I say to people before they look for a Bible.  I don't want them to be confused with the NKJV.

I simply refer to the KJB. I don't use dates because that can lead to confusion as I've known some who went out to by a KJV 1611 and that's just what they got and they were unable to read it at all.

 

Most of us are using a 1700s edition of the KJB but that typically doesn't need to be addressed. Simply saying "King James Bible" will suffice.

 

For myself, I only use the KJB because the Lord directly said to, not by audible voice, but by His Spirit telling me directly just as clear as day.

I have said KJV to people and they buy the NKJV.  That is why I specify Authorized Version, now.

Aren't the changes between the AV1611 and the "Cambridge 1769" mainly for spelling?  http://www.bible-res...om/canon10.html

 

These are some "changes" which were supposedly made which weren't just spelling. i haven't researched them myself.

Yes, spelling, which included the updating from old style English to modern. The 1611 is very difficult to read because of the style of print as well as the spelling.

 

The update amounted to typographical editing, not actual change of content.

Translate from the Received Texts. Much more of a precise language than English and it was directly inspired.

Same here.

 

I use an 1875 edition.

Huh? How can you say this? English is one of the broadest and most precise language there is. Also, you don't even have punctuation and capitalization in the TR plus all the ADDED words that are not in the TR. And how can you say the TR was "directly inspired" when it is made up of copies of copies? If you truly believe this you should read it instead of your KJV. There is nothing magical about the "original languages" over the English.

 

Translate it from the KJV which is already being done by many missionaries.
