Why The KJV

Revelation 22-19"And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book." Revelation 22:19 (KJV)

 

Incorrectly Translated Verses Missing and Incorrectly Translated Verses in The NIV

 

Exodus 6:3 KJV

3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name Jehovah was I not known to them.

Exodus 6:3 NIV

3 I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as God Almighty,[a] but by my name the Lord[b] I did not make myself fully known to them.

The word "Jehovah" was replaced with the word "Lord" in the NIV, this is a incorrect because of the following reason, the Name "Jehovah" also known as "Yahweh" is a Name by which God is worshiped as the "Self-Existent One;" One who reveals himself through his creation. In this instance the name "Lord" would not have done justice to the greatness of God. There are also people who are called Lord. The title "Lord" in this instance does not speak of the greatness of God.

 

Isaiah 14:12 KJV

12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

Isaiah 14:12 NIV

12 How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!

The NIV drops the name, "Lucifer," which is another name for the Devil and replaces it with "morning star" in place of "son of the morning" in the KJV. JESUS is referred to as "Morning Star" in the book of Revelation.

 

Proverbs 8:18 KJV

18 Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.

Proverbs 8:18 NIV

18 With me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity

"Righteousness" is correct as in the KJV, not "prosperity" as translated in the NIV. A person can be prosperous without being righteous, the world can make us prosperous but it can never make us righteous.

 

Jeremiah 29:11 KJV

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil to give you an expected end.

Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

The NIV replaces the word "peace" with "prosper." We can be prosperous without having peace, God is not against His children prospering, but we need to keep the verses in context.

Daniel 3:25 KJV

25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

Daniel 3:25 NIV

25 He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.”

The NIV says, "the fourth looks like the son of the gods." "The Son of God," as translated in the KJV, and not "the gods," as translated in the NIV. Some of the translators of the NIV have tried to make the Word of God acceptable to all religions. The Word of God cannot be changed to accommodate man, man needs to conform to the Word of God.

 

Matthew 5:44 KJV

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Matthew 6:13 NIV

13 And lead us not into temptation,[a] but deliver us from the evil one.[b]’

The NIV omits an important part of the "Lord's Prayer, "For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory for ever, Amen."

 

Matthew 17:20-22 KJV

20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:

Matthew 17:20-22 NIV

20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

[21] [a]

11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?

Matthew 18:10-12 NIV

The Parable of the Wandering Sheep

10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.

[11] [a]

12 “What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off?

NIV omitted Matthew 18-11 NIV omitted Matthew 18:11.

 

Matthew 19:17 KJV

17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

Matthew 19:17 NIV

17 “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”

This verse should be stated correctly as, as in the KJV "Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God:"

 

Matthew 23:13-15 KJV

13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

Matthew 23:13-15 NIV

Seven Woes on the Teachers of the Law and the Pharisees

13 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.

[14] [a]

15 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are.

Mark 7:15-17 KJV

15 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.

16 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

17 And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable.

Mark 7:15-17 NIV

15 Nothing outside a person can defile them by going into them. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles them.”

[16] [a]

17 After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable.

Mark 9:43-47 KJV

43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

Mark 9:43-47 NIV

43 If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out.

[44] [a]

45 And if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than to have two feet and be thrown into hell.

[46] [b]

47 And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell,

Mark 11:25-27 KJV

25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

27 And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,

Mark 11:25-27 NIV

25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

Mark 13:33 NIV

33 Be on guard! Be alert[a]! You do not know when that time will come.

The KJV says, "watch and pray." It is not the same as "Be on guard! Be alert!" as translated in the NIV

 

Mark 15:27-29 KJV

27 And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left.

28 And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.

Mark 15:27-29 NIV

27 They crucified two rebels with him, one on his right and one on his left.

Luke 4:4 KJV

4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

Luke 4:4 NIV

4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.’[a]”

Words omitted in this verse, "but by every word of God." (This is one of the most important verses in the Bible)

 

Luke 4:8 KJV

8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Luke 4:8 NIV

8 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.’[a]”

"Get thee behind me, Satan," in the KJV. Why did the NIV translators not put these words in?

 

Luke 11:2-4 KJV

2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

3 Give us day by day our daily bread.

4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

Luke 11:2-4 NIV

2 He said to them, “When you pray, say: “‘Father,[a] hallowed be your name, your kingdom come.[b]

3 Give us each day our daily bread.

4 Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.[c] And lead us not into temptation.[d]’”

When we pray the Lord's Prayer, we pray "Our Father which art in heaven" The NIV omitted the words "Our" and only mentions "Father." Are they referring to another father? In addition, "Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth" was omitted and "deliver us from evil" was omitted in verse 4 by the NIV translators. Did they not see a need for deliverance?

 

Luke 12:31 KJV

31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Luke 12:31 NIV

31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.

The NIV omits these important words. It should say "the kingdom of God." The NIV says, "his kingdom." To which kingdom are they referring?

 

Luke 17:35-37 KJV

35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

John 4:42 NIV

42 They said to the woman, “We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world.”

The NIV omitted the "Christ" which means "Anointed One." And KJV states "Now we believe" whereas NIV states "We no longer believe"

NIV omitted "waiting for the moving of the water."

 

John 5:3-5 KJV

3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.

5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

"Lord" in KJV was changed to "sir" in NIV.

 

John 9:35 KJV

35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?

John 9:3 NIV

35 Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?”

In this particular verse, It should be "Son of God" and not, "Son of Man," as the NIV translates it.

 

John 6:47 KJV

47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

John 6:47 NIV

47 Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.

NIV says, "the one who believes has eternal life." Should be, "He that believeth on me hath everlasting life."

 

Acts 8:36-38 KJV

36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?

37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.

Acts 8:36-38 NIV

36 As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, “Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptized?”

38 And he gave orders to stop the chariot. Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him.

Acts 10:30 NIV

30 Cornelius answered: “Three days ago I was in my house praying at this hour, at three in the afternoon. Suddenly a man in shining clothes stood before me

Romans 11:6 KJV

6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

Romans 11:6 NIV

6 And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.

The NIV is not very clear on this verse and the KJV explains "Grace and Works." The NIV omits, "But if it be of works, then it is no more grace."

 

Romans 16:23-25 KJV

23 Gaius mine host, and of the whole church, saluteth you. Erastus the chamberlain of the city saluteth you, and Quartus a brother.

24 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Romans 16:23-25 NIV

23 Gaius, whose hospitality I and the whole church here enjoy, sends you his greetings. Erastus, who is the city’s director of public works, and our brother Quartus send you their greetings.

1 Corinthians 14:2 KJV

2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

Corinthians 14:2 NIV

2 For anyone who speaks in a tongue[a] does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit.

There are two errors in this verse. First, it should read, "unknown tongue" and second, it is by "the Spirit" (Holy Spirit) and not the spirit of man as in the NIV. Speaking in tongues is not by man's understanding of the "unknown tongue." The spirit of man has nothing to do with the "unknown tongue."

 

2 Corinthians 7:4 KJV

4 Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my glorying of you: I am filled with comfort, I am exceeding joyful in all our tribulation.

2 Corinthians 7:4 NIV

4 I have spoken to you with great frankness; I take great pride in you. I am greatly encouraged; in all our troubles my joy knows no bounds.

KJV says, "Great is my boldness of speech toward you." NIV says, "I have spoken to you with great frankness."

 

2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

2 Corinthians 10:5 NIV

5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

KJV "Casting down imaginations" is correct. NIV says, "demolish arguments."

 

Galatians 6:15 KJV

15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

Galatians 6:15 NIV

15 Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is the new creation.

NIV omits "for in Christ Jesus" in this verse.

 

Ephesians 3:14 KJV

14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Ephesians 3:14 NIV

14 For this reason I kneel before the Father,

KJV says, "I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." NIV says, "I kneel before the Father." (Which father are they talking about?)

 

Ephesians 5:9 KJV

9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

Ephesians 5:9 NIV

9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)

Colossians 1:2 KJV

2 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Colossians 1:2 NIV

2 To God’s holy people in Colossae, the faithful brothers and sisters[a] in Christ: Grace and peace to you from God our Father.[b]

The NIV omitted, "and the Lord Jesus Christ."

 

Colossians 2:18 KJV

18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

Colossians 2:18 NIV

18 Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen; they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind.

The KJV says, "things which he hath not seen." The NIV says, "what they have seen." A careless translation.

 

1 Timothy 2:7 KJV

7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.

1 Timothy 2:7 NIV

KJV says, "truth in Christ." NIV says, "truth."

 

Sermon - Why We Believe in the King James Bible (Eccl 8:4)

 

1 Timothy 3:16 KJV

16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

1 Timothy 3:16 NIV

16 Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit,[a] was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory

The KJV says, "God was manifest in the flesh." NIV says "He appeared in the flesh."

 

2 Timothy 3:17 KJV

17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

2 Timothy 3:17 NIV

17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

KJV says "the man of God may be perfect." NIV says "the servant of God." KJV says " thoroughly furnished unto all good works." NIV says "thoroughly equipped for every good work."

 

Hebrews 3:6 KJV

6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

Hebrews 3:6 NIV

6 But Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.

NIV's verse 6 is very confusing to me. KJV says, "and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end." NIV says, "and the hope in which we glory."

 

Hebrews 3:18 KJV

18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?

Hebrews 3:18 NIV

18 And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed?

KJV says, "to them that believed not." NIV says, " not to those who disobeyed."

 

Hebrews 4:12 KJV

12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12 NIV

12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

KJV says, "the word of God is quick, and powerful," not as in the NIV "the word of God is alive and active." One can be active without being powerful. It is the "Power of God," that sets us free, not "activity."

 

Hebrews 13:21 KJV

21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Hebrews 13:21 NIV

21 equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

KJV says, "make you perfect," not "equip you" as in the NIV. There is a vast difference.

 

1 Peter 1:22 KJV

22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:

1 Peter 1:22 NIV

22 Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.[a]

Should be "with a pure heart" as in KJV not just "heart," as in NIV everyone has a heart, but only Gods children have pure hearts.

 

1 Peter 2:2 KJV

2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

1 Peter 2:2 NIV

2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation,

"milk of the word" is correct and easy to understand even for a child, but what does the NIV mean by "spiritual milk?" The emphasis should be on the Word of God, and not on milk.


2 Peter 1:21 KJV

21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

2 Peter 1:21 NIV

21 For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

Should be "holy men," that is men touched by the Holy Spirit, and not "men" as translated in the NIV.

1 John 5:7 KJV

7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

1 John 5:7 NIV

7 For there are three that testify:

Omitted - "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."

 

1 John 5:13 KJV

13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

1 John 5:13 NIV

13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.

The NIV left out the last part of this verse which is important and reads, "and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."

 

Revelation 1:11 KJV

11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

Revelation 1:11 NIV

11 which said: "Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea."

The NIV omitted the very important Name of Jesus which reads "I AM THE ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE FIRST AND THE LAST."

 

Revelation 4:2 (KJV)

2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.

Revelation 4:2 (NIV)

2 At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it.

KJV says "and one sat on the throne." NIV says "with someone sitting on it."

 

Revelation 21:24 KJV

24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

Revelation 21:24 NIV

24 The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it.

The nations "which are saved" in the KJV, and not just "the nations" as the NIV says. We need to be saved, born again of the Spirit of God.

sentence structures  meaning The authors of N.I.V., A.S.V., C.E.V., N.K.J.V., A.M.P., N.A.S.B., R.S.V., & all other Bibles (except KJV) changed some of the sentence structures and meaning of the Holy Bible as you can clearly see from the examples above. The authors and publishers of above-mentioned Bibles are not only diluting and changing the meaning of the Holy Bible, I strongly believe that they are influenced by the devil in destroying the Word of GOD. Why are they destroying the Word of GOD? Because "For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." 1 Timothy 6:10 KJV They have to change the sentence structures and meanings so they can sell their "bible" and make money. Please read the Word of GOD daily but make sure it is the King James Version.
