What Version of The Bible Do You Use?

Post

DISCLAIMER:This is to be a topic where we state what versions of the Bible we use. There would be nothing wrong with starting a small debate, but anybody who tries to trash anybody else's version of the Bible will have their comments deleted and have an official moderator warning.

Let me start: I use the good old classic 1611 King James Version of the Bible.

I use the NASB, because it is what my Sunday school teachers use. It was also recommended by my Nana's best friend's husband, who is a preacher.

King James Version...mostly because that is normally the version we use in church. But I don't mind using other versions:)

I use KJB, but I do use the ESV in my sunday school, and for my Bible reading

Well, for the most part it's just some of the Old English being updated, though I do not like it. (No offense to anyone who reads it.) I read the first two verses of one one time, and words that I knew were either not there or changed.

Wow! You do? So you have the Apocrypha and everything?

Jeremiah 13:23
Ezekiel 36:26-27
Ephesians 2:4-10

God has done the impossible! He has, in effect, changed a leopard's spots into stripes! He turned me, one who was accustomed to do evil, into one who can walk in good works! He brought me to life from the dead and gave me His Spirit, in order to cause me to walk in His statutes! He has totally changed me, and it is all for His glory!
