    None of the above.

    How about, one of many good translations of the Bible, but hampered by its archaic language.

    I believe that the reason for this thread is because we as so called Christians are trying to explain are sin's away, If you look at

    Fornication Unmarried people who have sexual intercourse or who cohabitate (live together as sexual partners) commit fornication. In the few jurisdictions that retain this as a crime, it is generally unenforced or prosecution is rare.

    Adultery Any married person who cohabits or has sexual intercourse with another person who is not his or her spouse has committed adultery, which is a crime in some but not all jurisdictions. A single act of adultery is not commonly punished. However, people who repeatedly commit adultery or publicize the fact may be prosecuted. Adultery means different things in different jurisdictions. In some, if only one of the two parties is married, the married person alone is guilty. In others, both parties are guilty even though only one party is married.

    THE HOLY BIBLE KING JAMES VERSION

    31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: 32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

    THE NEW REVISED STANDARD VERSION OF THE BIBLE

    31“It was also said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32 But I say to you that anyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of unchastity, causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

    THE HOLY BIBLE AMERICAN STANDARD VERSION


    31 It was said also, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: 32 but I say unto you, that every one that putteth away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, maketh her an adulteress: and whosoever shall marry her when she is put away committeth adultery.

    Holy Bible, New Living Translation

    “You have heard that the law of Moses says, ‘A man can divorce his wife by merely giving her a letter of divorce.’ 32But I say that a man who divorces his wife, unless she has been unfaithful, causes her to commit adultery. And anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery
    THE HOLY BIBLE
    NEW KING JAMES VERSION
    31“Furthermore it has been said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.

    THE HOLY BIBLE
    INTERNATIONAL STANDARD VERSION®

    31“It was also said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife must give her a written notice of divorce.’ 32But I say to you, any man who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, causes her to commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.”

    The important word is fornication this is where is starts if we can change the meaning of this word then we can give grounds for the acceptdents of remarried the church or out side of the church

    Sexuality, Unchastity and Fertility: Economy of Production and Reproduction in Colonial Haryana
    Prem Chowdhry
    A fear of female sexuality and therefore, the need to control it have been felt in many societies and civilizations. This control has assumed different forms in different societies. In colonial Haryana, the custom of widow remarriage emerged as one of the most effective and socially valid forms of this control. The custom did not merely control the limited inheritance rights of the widow, an aspect which we have investigated extensively elsewhere, [1] it also controlled her sexuality, fertility and labour. In this chapter, the question of inheritance is explored in relation to these other aspects. This refocusing affords a wider dimension to the analysis by shifting the spotlight from the landowning class/caste to hitherto unexplored but significantly crucial aspects of the peasant economy which were being manipulated and controlled through the use of customs and 'traditions'. Not only were these traditions being constantly shaped, challenged and reshaped by patriarchy to fit the particular needs of a community, but in the given limited colonial space they were also open to negotiation by the widows themselves. Consequently, widow remarriage emerges as a complex custom, which shows contradictory facets in operation. On the other hand, it severely restricted a widow's right as to whom she could marry by enforcing upon her a levirate alliance and, on the other, it showed a rare flexible liberal sexual attitude which was willing to accommodate even her unchastity in it fold.

    Are we talking about Controling sex!

    Benatj,

    And the point of your post was? :scratch:

    Rather than trying to compare other versions to the KJV, compare them to the available Greek and Hebrew texts to see if they are true.
