Hi PJ,
Oops! I had to delete the two previous comments because I quoted the wrong Scripture. Sorry.

I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I favor the King James version of the Bible because of the inscription in the front. If you'll notice, it has reference that King James did everything in his power to be sure that the Scriptures were translated correctly.

I also supplement my Scripture reading with anything else, particularly children's books, so I can understand more fully what I am reading.

However, I have noticed that in some books, the words of David in Psalms 23, are changed and for me, that takes away from the beauty of the song.

Great post, today, PJ. I do enjoy your games.
