Verse Comparsion Chart

Most say they read the newer translations because they are easier to read. Most believe their new translation of the Bible is the same as the Authorized Version (KJV) just without the "thee's and thou's". As you will see by the following chart more has been left out of them than just the "thee's and thou's". For the sake of time and space we will be dealing with the NIV in this chart. However, what you read here, for the most part, applies to the other translations. Feel free to print this chart for further reference (to print this page simply right click on the page and select print). There are literally hundreds of verses that could have been shown. This chart is by no means complete.

Allow me to take this opportunity to remind you that God said in Deut. 4:2 "Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you." God again warns us of adding to or diminishing from His Words in Deut. 12:32, Prov. 30:5-6, and Rev. 22:18-19. With this many warnings we should all be extremely careful how we use God's Word. As you have seen much more has been left out (or changed) of the NIV than "thou, thee, and thine." Now you must decide, is it better to have a Bible that is so called 'easier to read' or a Bible that contains all of the Word of God?
