We dont always read from the same bibles but just out of interest what bible does everyone have or their most preferred version. I wonder if anyone reads the same one as me...I seem to cop a lot of flack for sticking with the one God gave me. Its KJV and He has always given me that one to read. I dont know, every other version just doesnt have that God Breathed spirit in it. Even NKJV didn't gel. When I looked up the same scripture in NKJV for a proverb and compared it to KJV it was completely different! One word was changed in the NKJV and the Proverb didnt make any sense. NIV also didnt make sense cos it was missing so much. I did use CEV when teaching children but I personally dont read or study from CEV myself. Its also weird how for a childrens bible it has so many footnotes, quibbling about words. I would rather use a paraphrase or retell the story when teaching children, we actually didnt use it that much but it was the one the teachers manual quoted from. I guess depends on what level you at but for 6 year olds its a but much. Anyway, please share. If God showed you a certain one or you just found it. The christian bookstore sent me their latest catalogue and theres all these different bibles in it. I mean how do you even choose. Since theres about two dozen different ones in english alone. Or do you just go, well it has a pink cover and flowers on it that means its a girls bible. Obviously some versions are more understandable than others, for example, Im glad nobody regularly quotes lolcat bible on TJ. The CEV tried to disguise that it was even a bible. Its title was Level 66. To this day I never heard of anyone saying I'm reading Level 66. But that is what it has on the cover and title page.
