    The Bible says that now we see through a glass darkly, but then face to face…all Truth will be made known, and how we handled it…it’s a very humbling and frightening thought to me. I want to cling to the Anchor of my soul – the only safe place to be…(Matthew 6:33)

  • Leonardo Machado:

    One book to rule them all.

  • clendor1:

    It’s so funny to hear these phrases as a hebrew speaker, as they are all quite common in Hebrew

    So what if it’s a rip-off? King James is one of the most famous translations of the Bible and the most widespread.

  • softwhere07:

  • Lozima101:

  • xchanxzenx:

    LOL what a bunch of bullshit. The King James Bible is nothing more than a rip off of the Geneva Bible of 1560, William Shakespeare used and quoted the Geneva many times and only the Geneva… 

  • Iamepideme:

    John Nielson & Royal Skousen’s “How much of the King James Bible is William Tyndale’s” shows an average of 83.7% of the King James New Testament to be found in Tyndale. Of the Old Testament books that Tyndale translated, 75.7% of the King James is found in Tyndale. He gave us phrases like “an eye for an eye, a tothe for a tothe”, “the spirite ys willynge, but the flesshe is weeke” and words like “scapegoat”.

    English was gelling while Tyndale was writing; he was a prime factor in how it set.

    Been there, done that, fell asleep. Oh, and it relieved my parents of thousands of dollars. Plus, I don’t think that anyone would believe that videos like this are a valid substitute for a “real” university. Stop trolling and do something useful with your life.

    Your spelling correction gives away your pompousness. Not every respected dialect of english spells certain words the same way. A big example being “humo(u)r.”

    I have just found this awesome poster, this poster shows our early English heroes from the ‘Adventus Saxonum’499 AD and warband leaders Hengist and Horsa, through to King Harold and Hereward ‘the Wake’ ,all depicted against the backdrop of a dramatic cliff side setting. and below a corresponding description, Little has been done to make ourselves or our children proud of our own English heroes.This poster puts that right at last.
