I use the King James Version. I do this because I like it and I memorize in it. I can’t find stuff in other Bibles.
I get tired of people saying how hard the KJV is to understand. There is a way to redeem that situation: learn.
Seriously, you could. Just because it uses outdated words doesn’t mean you can’t learn what they mean. A little effort can provide you a great reading experience. It will also allow you to rock Scrabble, Boggle, WordTwist and many other word-based games.
In an effort to un-NIV Christendom, allow me to edikate you in a fine piece of KJV Vocabulary.
Today’s KJV Vocab word is:
It is found in Isaiah 3:24 in the phrase, “and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth.”
A stomacher is an expensive robe usually worn at festive occasions. Now you know. And, honestly, that phrase sounds much cooler than the NIV’s bland “instead of fine clothing, sackcloth.”
