O.k. Gals. Have to admit, although am very partial to my King James Version Bible (probably because I'm so conservative, old-fashioned & traditional!), have run across some of the other versions (NIV, NKJV, etc.) in the course of my studies that has piqued my curiosity. Scripture in these versions is so straight-forward! Am concerned about losing the real meaning, however, with it being pulled through too many translations. Keep in mind this is a woman who, with the help of a wonderful website, takes scripture back to Hebrew (as time permits!) in order to avoid as much of that "filtering" as possible. And although most of what I translate matches up with my KJV, occasionally, I'll run across a verse that interprets a little differently in Hebrew. Those are really "WOW!" moments! LOL! Anyone have a personal preference they would be willing to share?
