I read the king james version. I grew up reading it so when I try reading other versions, it feels weird.

I have a New King James Version and a New International Version and so those are the versions I usually read. I like those two because they are, I believe, the closest translation to the Septuagint version which was written in Greek which, on the other hand, was translated from the Hebrew Bible.

I read the KING JAMES VERSION. Many new versions has many different words from the ORIGINAL KJV. Few hundreds of words were taken away from the ORIGINAL KJV BIBLE. One of the most popular paraphrase is the "Living BIBLE". It is really not a translation at all. I am the LORD, I change NOT says the BIBLE in Malachi 3:6. I really like the way KJV BIBLE says "Thou & Thy" rather than "You". Therefore I choose to read the ONE and ONLY King James Version. If you haven't try reading the King James Version, why not try today? God bless You.

We have so many different versions but the one I use the most is the New King James Versions, but I have found that The American Standard Version and The International Version are great to use at church teaching our children in children's church and my Wednesday Night Class. God bless you!

actually these versions are very useful specially when you are comparing and making the verse more simplified...there are verses that really appreciated when it comes to much simpler form in the other version and thanks to these versions that was made as a variation that fits the message and the lesson you intend to teach...

I'm a little bit of an oddball (maybe) I'm reading a psalm first in the morning from my King James Version.. and I read through a gospel each season, right now from the New Jerusalem bible as it sounds most Hebrew/ancient to me.. and the letter or 'epistle' I am reading right now is 1st Corinthians and I'm reading that from the my pocket Amplified Version because it really expounds on the text and meaning.. I'd like to get a Young's Literal Translation.. blessings!

i think its good to have some copy of the different bible version in order for you to compare and extract the real sense of the words...some bible version provides commentaries and some greek and hebrew word translation so to know the root of the word being used and translated in the bible...this translation give you more of an additional body in your outline and features specially in teaching purposes, and arousing the interest of your students through your effort to bring out an excellent additional point of interest...

..amen.. I couldn't get along without my Hebrew/Greek concordances! Both Hebrew and Greek are very full languages.. but the King's English is a lot narrower. I think we miss an awful lot without the notes on the original words used!
