King James Version

The King James Version, commonly known as the Authorized Version or King James Bible, is an English translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England begun in 1604 and completed in 1611. First printed by the King's Printer Robert Barker, ... this was the third translation into English to be approved by the English Church authorities. The first was the Great Bible commissioned in the reign of King Henry VIII, and the second was the Bishops' Bible of 1568. In January 1604, King James VI and I convened the Hampton Court Conference where a new English version was conceived in response to the perceived problems of the earlier translations as detected by the Puritans, a faction within the Church of England.James gave the translators instructions intended to guarantee that the new version would conform to the ecclesiology and reflect the episcopal structure of the Church of England and its belief in an ordained clergy. The translation was done by 47 scholars, all of whom were members of the Church of England   more

None, or the Ninth Hour, is a fixed time of prayer of the Divine Office of almost all the traditional Christian liturgies. It consists mainly of psalms and is said around 3 p.M. Its name comes from Latin and refers to the ninth hour of the day after...  dawn.This hour is now described more generally as the "midafternoon prayer" and may be said whenever convenient during the day, or omitted entirely. However, bishops and priests are still expected to recite the full sequence of hours, as closely as possible to the traditional time of day   more

There is a few of them I would consider as accurate, but not the KJV. It has all kinds of mistakes in it.
Haroush says2014-11-23T07:29:52.1538720-06:00
Myself, I read the Complete Jewish Bible, and the Tanakh.

Jeannie what type of pagan belief do you believe?

Most of the ones listed say the same thing with different words and slight variance. There are a lot of people who say KJV but I find it's old english very dry reading.

Yup I am an eclectic wiccan (mostly atheistic). KJV, NAS and NIV are pretty different some passages are left out of the NIV/NAS and their are a lot of biases in each. For example take Jeremiah 10 where axe gets changed to chisel because the modern day Christians want their Christmas trees without feeling bad for idol worship (as it still technically is).
