Publisher Whitaker House KJV Sword Study bible is NOT a true KJV

Recommended Posts

 

First off, I like this Sword bible for its Red Letter of the OT and the NT.  However, it has errors, or should I say, changes to GOD's Word.

 

Publisher Whitaker House KJV (fake version) bible errors. 

  1. This is not a true King James Bible.

  2. The word changes  are very subtle, but these changes effect the verse meaning drastically, taking away from the Word of GOD.

  3. Below are some samples.

    Book & Chapter

    KJB / Fake KJV

    King James Bible (KJB) 1611

    Fake KJV (version)

    Very FIRST PAGE of this bible titled:

Is it possibly a kjv2000?

They tried to do what the NKJV was supposed to - update archaic words.

Not a fan by the way.

While there are clearly some differences that change meaning, shew and show are the same exact word, just different spellings, Shew is British spelling and show is American, also needs and needeth are the same thing. The morpheme -eth is archaic and has been replaced in today’s English with the morpheme -s.

there is also no difference in meaning betwixt the word between and betwixt. 

Same for “wit” and “know” they both mean the same thing as well.

Same for “nigh” and “near” both mean the same thing.

I lament the fact how people do not understand the English language the way they think they do. There are plenty of real changes to point out that exist between the KJV and other versions. But modern equivalent of archaic words are not changes in meaning, nor are spelling changes either..On that note, have you ever seen a 1611 KJV? Son was spelled Sonne. Does the version you use have Son or Sonne? 

I am a through and through KJV bible believer and defender, but can we please stop making issues out of non issues?

Show is also an English word.  Shew is archaic,  When I was young railway stations used to have a sign "ALL TICKETS MUST BE SHEWN."   Even at that time  it was archaic as we usually used Show,  I could not understand what shewn meant.
