I have the highest respect for the King James version of the bible, and to me, it is by far
the best translation that I have read. In my opinion, its level of scholarship and academic excellence
is unsurpassed. It took 50 top scholars 7 full years to complete, and it is as close to the original Greek
and Hebrew that we’ve got to date. The richness of its text combined with its historical accuracy
makes it an astounding achievement. It is no wonder that it has set, and is still, the standard for all
new translations that have been written since.
