    What errors do you think exist within the KJV?

    Please see my other CF thread here on answers to various supposed contradictions in the KJV.
    I have a few more answers to supposed contradictions for the KJV I would like to add later.


    Anyways, may God bless you;
    And may you please be well.

    Outside the number of horsemen David acquired (either 700 KJV, 1700 Tanakh/Septuigent/NASB, or 7000 NIV) when comparing the same verse in 2 Samuel 8:4, the most disturbing one I found was Isaiah 63:11

    NKJV
    Then he remembered the days of old,
    Moses and his people, saying:
    “Where is He who brought them up out of the sea
    With the shepherd of His flock?
    Where is He who put His Holy Spirit within them,

    KJV has the same misleading wording.

    NASB
    Then His people remembered the days of old, of Moses.
    Where is He who brought them up out of the sea with the shepherds of His flock? Where is He who put His Holy Spirit in the midst of them,

    The cloud of smoke and the pillar of fire were not inside them, but in the midst of them.

    I don't generally contest the accuracy of the KJV. My biggest objection is the gap between 17th century [British?] English and that of 21st century America. Even modern UK English has some stark differences from USA English.

    Otherwise, if it was good enough for Paul, it's good enough for me... :p

    Yes but just about every English language translation followed the Jewish tradition.

    But that doesn't make it any less wrong:

    Titus 1:
    14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.​

    That said, I quote the KJV all the time, correcting the Name as I go.

    I agree. The patriarchs proclaimed The Name of God YHWH. Therefore we should write The Name and proclaim!

    It's the same but more "English."

    The Hebrew or Aramaic "ye" sounding is sounded "je" in English. That is why you see some renderings as "Yehova."

    Bible versions which use Jehovah, YHWH or Yahweh are:

    Lexham English Bible
    Youngs Literal Translation
    World English Bible
    American Standard Version
    Darby Translation
    Names of God Bible

    All of the above may be accessed at Biblegateway.com with various copyright restrictions. Meaning if we cut and paste the verses from certain versions we have to abide by the copyright.

    The NOG really gets to the detail for example here:

    Went there. Good analysis. I look forward to your additions as we get a lot of skeptics who nit pick often here.

    So in the following, I'll break each transliteration up by the letters of the Name יהוה.

    With Jehovah (Je-ho-v-ah) we would pronounce:

    "Jo-shua" as "Jehov-shua"

    because the first three letters of Yahweh's Name are on the front.

    Whereas with Yahweh (Ya-h-u-eh)

    "Jo-shua" as "Yahu-shua."

    There are plenty of names that do the same, and I've found that "Yahu" is easier to say than "Jehov."

    Another example. This time the three letters are on the end and not the front. I have to change the whole name to make it more accurate:

    "Isa-iah" as "Yesha-jehov"

    or

    "Isa-iah" as "Yesha-yahu."

    Now both of them, back to back, which one can you say faster, more readily, smoother, even such that some of the syllables become dipthongs?

    Thanks for asking!

    If you click on the link within my OP (Original Post), you will see the issue involving the number of David’s horsemen resolved in Supposed Contradiction #1.

    As for your other reference:

    I do not see that as a contradiction. The Old and New Testament talk of how men of God in the OT were indwelled by the Spirit. I will give you verses later.
