    So do you have a birth certificate? Does this copyright extend to your DNA?

    "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

    Whoa, what?!

    This is what I remember, by heart:

    "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."

    Notice the difference?

    Even my preferred secondary version, in "modern English," the New American Standard, perverts this verse:

    "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased."

    It is interesting that many consider Yahweh God to have been a "meanie" in olden times, but the new "enlightened age" has made Him a nice(r) guy. Yet the "olde text" is what makes Yahweh look more compassionate to all His creation.

    When studying the Bible, always compare the verse you're reading to how the grand English standard, the King James Version, lays it out.

    I have been a King James Bible believer for over 30 years, I probably know it better than anyone here (not bragging, just saying)
    It has NO provable errors, even after 400 years. It has stood the test of time and it certainly is not arbitrary that it is this way, it is by decree of a King, the ONLY English Bible (of over 1000 English translations since 1611) which has been decreed by a King and today requires no fee (copyrighted) to copy it.

    Ecclesiastes 8:4 Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?
    The King James Bible has the power which no other English translation has, God's hand is personally on it and this is based on 20/20 hindsight as well as all the FAILED attempts to silence it, thwart it, malign it and usurp it.

    Not only did God put his words into English at the perfect time in history but used that SAME nation (England) to spread English around the world so people could read it, even though English is not the MOST spoken (mandarin is) it is still the universal language of the world in spite of this.

    The big deal is that the KJV has been stable for over 400 years. It has some mistakes, but we know about all or most of them. It is a small thing to compare the words of the KJV to a directory of those words (called a concordance) to see if they are translated uniformly. You should be doing that with any version that you choose to study. It is a small thing to compare the KJV to an Interlinear Greek-English Translation Of The New Testament (there are several brands) to discover obvious misinterpretations. For example, the word 'one' was added to John 19:18. The bible plainly describes five crucified together, not three.

    Bottom line:
    Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

    God Himself maintains the integrity of His word.
