I use several, with perhaps NKJV a bit in the lead.<br><br>I usually take a NASB to Sunday morning service because it is small and there are books to take for Sunday School. For the service,<br><br>I will try to bookmark the readings in Olive Tree's Palm Bible Reader program where I have KJV, ASV, and with a new 16 Meg Palm NKJV and ESV.<br><br>I will also refer to a 1599 Geneva Bible (L.L. Brown's facsimile version).<br>

If you don't have an NIV (no loss, IMHO) then I can post it here for you:

NIV: Jesus replied, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."

KJV: And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

ASV: But Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

YLT: and Jesus said unto him, `No one having put his hand on a plough, and looking back, is fit for the reign of God.'

Darby: But Jesus said to him, No one having laid his hand on [the] plough and looking back is fit for the kingdom of God.

In His Grace,

I recently switched from the NKJV to the ESV. The ESV is in paragraph form which I like, and it is easier to understand--just compare reading Gal 3 and 4 -in fact all of Pauls epistles make much more sense when reading the ESV instead of NKJV or KJV.<br> I know this is begining to sound cliche--but it is true--the ESV also retains the literary eloquence of the KJV--<br>I still read my NKJV and KJV, the NASB seems to choppy and awkward for reading and I stay away from the NIV and other dynamic texts. The NIV may also be 'easier' to understand in some aspects, but it does not capture the poetry of Gods words in its translation.<br>

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr>[color:"blue"]When you said "the Joseph Smith KJV", are you knocking the KJV by associating it with the heretic Joseph Smith? I certainly hope not.</font><hr></blockquote><p> I believe he meant that Joseph Smith used the KJV to make his [color:red]own version</font color=red>, thus the JSKJV for short. He was comparing it to the JW's NWT (New World Translation), who basically did the same thing. Joseph Smith, the first prophet of the LDS, made drastic changes in at least 3,410 verses of the KJV which consisted of additions, deletions, rearrangements, and other alterations that caused it to vary not only from the KJV, but from other biblical texts. Changes range from minor details to fully reconstituted chapters. <br><br>


Reformed and Always Reforming,

Just as a side note, in the NIV there are places where the word, "blood" is removed and a virgin is replaced with "young woman".

Hardly. Please read more of my posts to gain a better understanding of my beliefs. After doing this, you should realise I am quite reformed and strongly oppose the errors of my forefathers in aiding Joseph Smith in establishing the mormon heresy. [img]http://www.the-highway.com/w3timages/icons/puke.gif" alt="puke" title="puke[/img] I was simply putting the JSKJV and the NWT in a category of the worst. My opologies for not being clearer, friend. [img]http://www.the-highway.com/w3timages/icons/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile[/img]<br><br><br>God bless,<br><br>william

I am very curious why you would ask that question? I have always and only used the KJV. I don't use this Bible based on what nationality I am. Was this just curiosity on your part, or is there some hidden meaning?<br><br>Maybe we are both just curious.

In college we called it the non inspired version.
