After their failed rocket launch the dumb little dictator is once again trying to mess up everyone’s day. The crazy little man in Pyongyang is thinking of shooting another rocket, their 3rd nuclear test. The mad little dictator’s military now said that “Substantial preparations for the test have been completed,” . So it appears that they are about to send another few dollars into thin air while the entire population of North Korea suffers from hunger and the world’s worst concentration camps this little midget is preparing his missile.
The Amplified is not an accurate translation. For instance in Genesis 1 lets look at a few verses:
5And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
8And God called the firmament Heavens. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
13And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.
19And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
I guess you get the picture. there is a huge difference between the first day and one day.
One day reads almost like a fairy tale, once upon a time there was a fairy tale land.
Not only that, it also promotes the idea of evolution claiming that it could be any day. It was just “a fourth day” and not THE fourth day.
I find it amusing that people usually claim that the New American Standard Bible is very close to the original greek and Hebrew, it seems they dont tell us exactly which Hebrew that is. The New Testament for the NASB is the Novum Testamentum Graece of Nestle-Aland while the Old Testament is Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia and the Septuagint.
The Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia is based on the Leningrad Codex. Although the Leningrad Codex is similar to the Masoretic the New Testament is definitely not by a long shot the original text used in the King James Version. They did not use the Textus Receptus.
Copyright and trademark to the NASB text are owned by the Lockman Foundation. The same people that own the copyright for the Amplified bible although the Amplified bible is owned by both Zondervan and The Lockman foundation.
The Papyrus Bodmer is quite the collection of manuscripts. Starting with bodmer papyrus II we have almost the entire book of John. That is the gospel of John. This manuscript according to most “scholars” is Alexandrian text type probably because its old.
I know I said almost complete but John 2-5 is missing as well as John 7-14 and most after this is just scattered bits. The date as determined by … I dont know how they determined the date to be honest. Obviously it doesnt contain the pericope of the adulteress because John 7-14 is missing. Also known as Papyrus 66
Next we have Bodmer V which contains Proverbs 1:1-21:4. Its dated 5th century.
Then there is Papyrus Bodmer VII-IX. It contains 1 and 2 Peter and the book of Jude. It also contains Psalms 33 and 34.Manuscript also known as Papyrus 72. This is the earliest account of Jude being 3rd century

Papyrus Bodmer XIV contains parts of Luke, 3rd century
Papyrus Bodmer XV contains parts of John 3rd century XV and XIV is also known as Papyrus 75. Agrees with Codex Vaticanus.

The voice seems to be rather shocking. I bet that is what the guy that wrote it intended. The biggest reason any Christian would skip right over this version is because “Jesus Christ” is not found in it. The two words together are not found, they are probably found separate though but not together.
David Capes, lead scholar for The Voice claims that this bible version is “a more accurate translation for modern American readers”. Yeah right.
Frank Couch is executive editor and publisher of The Voice.
Matthew Paul Turner worked on several Psalms and the book of Esther.
I dont know if these people are Christians or not but you gotta have some guts to put out rubbish like this. Who cares what man says, they have to answer to GOD on day.
Jesus Christ is who the bible is about. Yeshua, Jesus the Son of God, the Christ.
The Voice was published by none other than Thomas Nelson publishers.
Codex Claromonanus V is a Vetus Latina or Old Latin manuscript mixed with the Vulgate. Matthew is Vetus Latina text but the rest is Vulgate. The text is written on vellum or calf skin. As far i know it only contains the 4 gospels.
The age of the manuscript is from the 4th century.
The text is currently being stored in the Vatican.
The deceit of that phrase people so often find in bibles driven by the new bible version movement. Those two manuscripts they so often claim as being the oldest and best manuscripts is Codex Vaticanus or Codex Sainiticus. The two most corrupt manuscripts of bible text on the face of the planet.
The bible says in Amos 8 that:
Amo 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
Amo 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
Amo 8:13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.
The famine of the words of the LORD. That is the days we live in when the new bible version movement will take over the scene with the most corrupt versions the church has ever seen.
Dont believe that phrase for one second “Not in the two oldest and best manuscripts”.

The Pericope Adulterae was originally in the bible. Dont know what this is? Well the Pericope Adulterae is debated by many people to not be part of the original new testament, it being the scripture part of the woman taken in adultery.
Joh 8:1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
Joh 8:2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
Joh 8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
Joh 8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
Joh 8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
Joh 8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
Joh 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
Joh 8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
Joh 8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
Joh 8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
Joh 8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
So once again the dividing bible critics claim that this was never included in the bible, only after a certain time was it included. How long that is supposedly i do not know.
There are however a whole bunch of manuscripts that contains Pericope Adulterae the most famous is Codex Bezae that is from the 5th century. The King James Bible is actually based on most of the Codex Bezae.
Two others are Codex Basilensis and Codex Boreelianus. Then there is also Codex Seidelianus I and Codex Seidelianus II.
From the 10th century there is Codex Petropolitanus and actually most of the Byzantine text that agree with the Pericope Adulterae.
Dont forget to add that most of the Vetus Latina manuscripts also contain the Pericope Adulterae as well as Codex Fuldensis on which the Roman Catholic Vulgate is based on.
Famous people that quoted the Pericope Adultery is: Didascalia, Didymus the blind, Ambrose and two really famous Jerome and Augustine.
In 1989 the National Council of Churches in the US ordered one of the many “full-scale” revisions of the RSV and this time they went even further than just removing the virgin birth. They add the use of gender neutral language.
Today we have the most corrupted versions that ever existed, like the TNIV that makes full use of the “gender neutral language”.
There is a huge debate as to whether the King James Bible is inspired, or whether only the Textus Receptus and the Hebraic Tanakh (bomberg) is the only inspired scriptures. Well, the truth is they both are inspired. You see the bible says that every word of God is pure.
Pro 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Psa 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
Psa 18:30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
You see every single verse in the King James Bible is inspired. If those words were translated correctly then it means that every verse is inspired. If it said the same in Hebrew or Greek from which it was translated then it should be called inspired.
Hence we can even call the verses in the Geneva Bible inspired apart from the Apocrypha which they self claimed was not inspired.
A bible is a collection of the all the inspired verses but once these verses are removed it no longer makes it a complete bible. For instance. Lets look at an inspired verse of the bible.
Deu 32:4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
You see that verse right there is inspired. It might be inspired in the original meaning but if that was translated correctly then we can tell that the translation of that verse can be also called inspired.
Now lets look at the King James Bible.
All the verses that should be there, are there and no verses are left out. That means all the inspired words of God is in that book. All of them. This makes the bible itself inspired.
Sure there are debates whether all the words were translated correctly but that is another debate. Or rather hundreds of debates. But saying the KJV did translate all the verses correctly and as accurate as possible in the English language then that would make the King James Bible inspired.
From the official “to the reader” of the NSRV and i believe it is in the Revised Standard Version as well. This bible version and those associated with it is clearly ecumenical as they self confess.
The Revised Standard Version Bible Committee is a continuing body, comprising about thirty members, both men and women. Ecumenical in representation, it includes scholars affiliated with various Protestant denominations, as well as several Roman Catholic members, an Eastern Orthodox member, and a Jewish member who serves in the Old Testament section. For a period of time the Committee included several members from Canada and from England.
This seems to be the New Revised Standard Version’s “To the reader” page. Once again i dont agree with this KJV bashing but i’m posting this for reference and for people to read the view of Bruze M Metzger the “widely regarded parent of the RSV and NSRV” as you can see in the quotation.
Now to the quotation, as you can see i did not remove anything and kept it in context as Bruce M Metzger wrote it.
According to the preface of the Revised Standard Version the King James bible has serious “defects”. Obviously someone does not know what a real defect is, such as a poor attempt to make another bible version.
Here is what they had to say in the preface:
