My guess is that v. 37 was added at some Point and not in the older manuscripts or original texts. Yes, it’s the correct answer for the eunuch to give but was is it in the older, original texts which newer versions like NLT use.

    Todd Tomasella Ive found out most so called KJVonly ppl have never seen a real 1611 KJV that costs a lot of money I only know 2 ppl who own a real one the rest of them are all fakers They dont even know that KJV was translated from the very Catholic Textus Receptus pieced out by the very Catholic counter reformer Erasmus the humanist The Greek to me reveals the fullness of what was written, but it doesn’t change it, just opens it up. Are you well studied in Greek? Drew Banacos

      Not buying this …. QUESTION: Was Erasmus, the editor of the Textus Receptus, a “good” Roman Catholic?

      If the Catholic church had anything to do with the King James Bible, they sure missed every opportunity to insert their doctrines. Common sense tells us the King James Bible utterly, with divine strength, exposes the Roman cult for what it is – pure antichrist.

      IF THE BIBLE IS A CATHOLIC BOOK, THEN: Why does it condemn clerical dress? (Matt. 23:5-6). Why does it teach against the adoration of Mary? (Luke 11:27-28). Why does it show that all Christians are priests? (1 Pet. 2:5,9). Why does it condemn the observance of special days? (Gal. 4:9-11). Why does it forbid us to address religious leaders as “father”? (Matt. 23:9).

      Also, IF THE BIBLE IS A CATHOLIC BOOK, THEN: Why does the Bible teach that Christ is the only foundation and not the apostle Peter? (1 Cor. 3:11). Why does it address only God Himself as the “Holy Father”? (John 17:11). Why does it teach that there is one mediator instead of many? (1 Tim. 2:5). Why is it completely silent about infant baptism, indulgences, purgatory, confession to priests, the rosary, the mass, and many other things in the Catholic Church?

      IF THE BIBLE IS A CATHOLIC BOOK, THEN: Why does the Bible teach that all Christians are saints? (1 Cor. 1:2). Why does it condemn the making and adoration of images? (Ex. 20:4-5). Why does it teach that baptism is immersion instead of pouring? (Col. 2:12).

      Furthermore, IF THE BIBLE IS A CATHOLIC BOOK, THEN: Why does the Bible forbid us to address religious leaders as “father”? (Matt. 23:9).Why does it teach that Christ is the only foundation and not the apostle Peter? (1 Cor. 3:11). Why does it address only God Himself as the “Holy Father.” (John 17:11).

      If the Bible is catholic, why then did the Pope put the Bible on the Index of forbidden books in the 12th century?

      EVEN MORE: IF THE BIBLE IS A CATHOLIC BOOK, THEN: Why does the Bible teach that there is only One Mediator instead of many? (1 Tim. 2:5). Why is it completely silent about infant baptism, indulgences, purgatory, confession to priests, the rosary, the mass, and many other heresies perpetrated by the Catholic Church?

      First thing about the KJV: it is not the best translation out there. It is based upon a limited number of Greek and Latin manuscripts. Today, we have found many earlier manuscripts. Not to mention, the vernacular of the KJV is not modern English. No one speaks in “KJV” unless they are in church or a Shakespeare play. They just aren’t the words that we use; translations need to be frequently updated in order to be more accustomed to the modern form of language. All languages are dynamic and continue to develop meaning based upon their historical contexts. Second, even after deciding what might be the “best” translation, there is still the difficult work of interpretation. People assume that since a certain translation is more reliable, that means the person who has that translation is going to have a better interpretation than the person with the poorer translation. This isn’t the case.

    The Lord encouraged and built up my faith today reading the KJV Bible. This evening I spent two hours doing the same with a young man coming out of homosexuality. He’s made a good confession of faith and working through the changes. Said he’s still having nightmares. I gave him Psalms 127:2
    “It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.” He understood it and was comforted and helped. That’s right the King James Bible.

    James snuck his name in there and history speaks for itself. There was no letter j in the hebrew language and still isn’t . It only appeared in the English alphabet during the 1600″s. Even the name Jesus is a mistake.

    Translations of the Bible do not save people; but out dated translations can obscure the truth from people who speak a language that has modified over 400 years. How many people have missed heaven because they couldn’t understand?

    If you (anyone) read the original KJV you couldn’t understand it either!

    Philip Williams Oscar Valdez Jim Price James Philemon Bowers Tom Bowers MY KING JAMES ONLY BROTHERS OFTEN CLAIM THAT THEIR VERSION IS PERFECT, but it seems that II Samuel 15:7 disproves that. It has “forty years” for the time Absalom spent gaining influence for his rebellion, but that is impossible. Absalom was born after David became king (3:3), and David reigned about forty years (I Kings 2:11). Four years is undoubtedly correct, as in most modern versions, the Syriac, Arabic, and Josephus. To say that the forty years refers to something other than Absalom’s time spent gaining influence totally ignores the immediately preceding verses: “And on this manner did Absalom to all Israel that came to the king for judgment: so Absalom stole the hearts of the men of Israel. And it came to pass after forty years, that Absalom said unto the king, I pray thee, let me go and pay my vow, which I have vowed unto the LORD, in Hebron.” (II Samuel 15:6-7 KJV) (adapted from “Charisma Commentary on the Bible’) I’ve memorized over 6,000 verses from the KJV, but I’m against King James only. We have a reliable Bible,, but not a perfect Bible. The perfect Bible is in heaven: For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. (Psa 119:89 KJV)

    Consideration of the many manuscripts is important. But EVERY translation is man made and fallible. Those who believe otherwise are at great risk of committing idolatry.

    One clear error in almost every English translation is that the term doulos is incorrectly rendered as “servant,” while the correct meaning is SLAVE, as rendered in the new Legacy Standard Bible.

    There are six terms that may be translated, “servant,” but doulos is slave.
