For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16 KJV)and
A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. (Psalms 23:1-6 KJV)Certainly no one can dispute its distinct place in history or even number the times its words have been preached or quoted. Most people recognize that it is a very good translation and the folks who translated it 400 years ago did a very good job.

Yet they had a file for the mattocks, and for the coulters, and for the forks, and for the axes, and to sharpen the goads. (1 Samuel 13:21 KJV)In the New American Standard, it reads:
The charge was two-thirds of a shekel for the plowshares, the mattocks, the forks, and the axes, and to fix the hoes. (1 Samuel 13:21 NASB)So, was it a file (KJV) or did they have to pay 2/3 of a shekel (NASB)? The answer comes from the original Hebrew word "פים" or "pim." The translators of the KJV and other early English versions, (including the Geneva) did not know what this was. From the context, they assumed it was a file to sharpen the blunt implements. However, later archeological discoveries showed that a pim was a unit of measurement [REF] which renders the earlier translation assumption inaccurate (wrong).
Saue me from the lyons mouth: for thou hast heard me from the hornes of the vnicornes.and the current:
(Psalms 22:21 KJV-1611)
Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.and the same in the NAS:
(Psalms 22:21 KJV)
Save me from the lion's mouth; From the horns of the wild oxen You answer me.The translation was authorized by King James I in the Church of England's response to the Puritans who were questioning the Anglican stance on the ordination of priests. King James' instructions were to translate it in such a way as to strengthen the Anglican position and weaken the Puritan position. Puritans had been using the Geneva Bible and the Church of England had created a previous English translation in 1568, but was inadequate to quell the common use of the Geneva Bible.
(Psalms 22:21 NASB)
In my opinion, Americans have embraced the KJV because of the small print on the title page that says, "Authorized Version." Ask them what it means or who authorized it and the reply will likely be "God did."First, Galatians iv. 25 (from the Bishops' Bible). The Greek word susoichei is not well translated as now it is, bordereth neither expressing the force of the word, nor the apostle's sense, nor the situation of the place. Secondly, psalm cv. 28 (from the Great Bible), ‘They were not obedient;’ the original being, ‘They were not disobedient.’ Thirdly, psalm cvi. 30 (also from the Great Bible), ‘Then stood up Phinees and prayed,’ the Hebrew hath, ‘executed judgment.’ [REF]

Senegal (Security threat level - 3): On 24 May 2011 the U.S. Embassy in Dakar released a Warden Message, which reads in part as follows: "As of May 2011, it was reported that terrorist organizations in West Africa affiliated with al-Qa’ida, will seek to capture or kill U.S. citizens in the region, possibly from locations frequented by Westerners, including markets, shops, hotels and restaurants, in revenge for the death of Usama bin Laden. We advise U.S. citizens traveling in the region to exercise caution, to maintain a low profile, and to avoid areas frequented by foreigners or tourists."
'But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.' "You may say in your heart, 'How will we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?' "When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.

For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah.
