 KJV   VS.   NASV

Gen. 1:5,8   

KJ:       5 “… And the evening and the morning were

                        THE FIRST DAY.”  8 “… And the evening and

                        the morning were THE SECOND DAY.”

              NASV:     5 “And there was evening and there was

                        morning, ONE DAY.  8 “And there was evening

                        and there was morning, A SECOND DAY.

              COMMENT:  God created everything during 6 LITERAL and

                        SEQUENTIAL, days. For example: On day 3 God

                        made the GRASS and the TREES. Then, on day

                        4 God made the SUN. Could the grass and trees

                        have gone ‘1 million years’ without sunlight

                        between day 3 and day 4?  Of course not!  So,

                        just like the KJ says: there were NO “GAPS”

                        between the 6 literal, and SEQUENTIAL, days

                        of creation. The NASV robs God of his glory

                        in CREATION.

Gen. 1:21     KJ:       “And God created great WHALES, …”

              NASV:     “And God created the great sea monsters, …”

              COMMENT:  God creates sea monsters?

Gen. 2:7      KJ:       “… and man became a living SOUL.”

              NASV:     “… and man became a living being.”

              Comment:  A MAJOR difference between man and beast is

                        that man is the ONLY creature with a SOUL. 

Gen. 2:13     KJ:       “… land of ETHIOPIA.”

              NASV:     “… land of Cush.”

              Comment:  I know where Ethiopia is, but where is Cush?

Gen. 3:4-5    KJ:       “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye

                        shall not surely die: For God doth know that

                        in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes

                        shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods,

                        knowing good and evil.”          ——-

                                      

              NASV:     “And the Serpent said to the woman, ‘You

                        surely shall not die! For God knows that in

                        the day you eat from it your eyes will be

                        opened, and you will be like God, knowing  

                                                ——— 

                        good and evil’.”

              COMMENT:  This is MAJOR blasphemy! God (with a big G)

                        is not evil!  Think about the difference.

Gen. 6:8      KJ:       “But Noah found GRACE in the eyes of the

                        Lord.”

              NASV:     “But Noah found favor in the eyes of the

                        Lord.”

              COMMENT:  God’s GRACE was extended in the Old

                        Testament, too.

                         

Gen. 22:8     KJ:       “And Abraham said, My son, God will PROVIDE

                        HIMSELF a lamb for a burnt offering: …”

              NASV:     “And Abraham said, ‘God will provide FOR

                        HIMSELF the lamb for a burnt offering, my

                        son’ …”

              Comment:  It is true, as the NASV says, that God did

                        provide FOR HIMSELF a sacrifice. However,

                        that is only part of the story! The NASV

                        totally misses the DEEPER, and MORE AMAZING

                        TRUTH: GOD WAS THE SACRIFICE!  The KJ wording

                        is perfect: “God will PROVIDE HIMSELF” (in

                        the form of his only begotten son Jesus

                        Christ) as the sacrifice.

Gen. 24:47    KJ:       “… and I put the EARRING UPON HER FACE,

                        …”

              NASV:     “… and I put the ring on her nose, …”

              COMMENT:  The NASV put WHAT on her nose?

Lev. 6:21     KJ:       “… FOR A SWEET SAVOUR unto the Lord.”

              NASV:     “… as a soothing aroma to the Lord.”

              COMMENT:  Whoever heard of soothing a sovereign God?

Joshua 12:23  KJ:       “… the king of the NATIONS of Gilgal, …”

              NASV:     “… the king of the Goiim of Gilgal, …”

              COMMENT:  Is the NASV’s ‘Goiim’ a “simpler and more

                        easily understandable word” than the

                        King James’ “NATIONS”?

Judges 7:20   KJ:       “… The sword OF the Lord, and OF Gideon.”

              NASV:     “… A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!”

              COMMENT:  Big difference in those two meanings.

2Sam. 16:4    KJ:       “… And Ziba said, I humbly BESEECH thee

                        [that] I may find GRACE in thy sight, my

                        lord, O king.”

              NASV:     “… And Ziba said, ‘I prostrate myself; let

                        me find favor in your sight, O my lord, the

                        king!'”

2Sam. 21:19   KJ:       “… Elhanan … slew [THE BROTHER OF]

                        Goliath …”

              NASV:     “… Elhanan … killed Goliath …”

              COMMENT:  Elhanan killed Goliath? What? Sunday school

                        CHILDREN know that DAVID slew Goliath!  The

                        NASV translation ‘scholars’ really blew this

                        one!  Oh, BTW, for a good book on the quality

                        of the King James translators please see:

                        “The Men Behind The KJV” by: Gustavus S.

                        Paine  ISBN: 0-8010-7008-2 published by Baker

                        Book House. 

                        Scholar for scholar the translators of the

                        KJ Bible were far greater men of God than

                        any today. John Bois could read the Bible,

                        in Hebrew, at age 5. Lancelot Andrews was

                        fluent in 20 languages. John Chedderton knew

                        Greek, Hebrew and Latin as well as you and

                        I know English (and better) etc. etc.

1Kings 14:24  KJ:       “And there were also SODOMITES in the land:

                        …”

              NASV:     “And there were also male cult prostitutes

                        in the land …”

              COMMENT:  SODOMITES is watered down to just ‘male cult

                        prostitutes’ here AND in 1Kings 22:46.

                        Sodomy is an ABOMINATION (Lev. 18:22). But

                        notice: The NASV has REMOVED sodomy.

                        1Kings 15:12  KJ:       “And he took away the SODOMITES out of the

                        land, …”

              NASV:     He also put away the male cult prostitutes

                        from the land, …”

              COMMENT:  Again, the NASV changes SODOMITES to ‘male

                        cult prostitutes’. This WARNING against

                        sodomy (“God TOOK AWAY the SODOMITES out of

                        the land, …”) is GONE in the NASV here in

                        1Kings 15:12 AND in 2Kings 23:7. 

1Kings 19:12  KJ:       “… A STILL SMALL VOICE.”

              NASV:     “… a sound of a gentle blowing.”

              COMMENT:  In the English language, there’s a vast

                        difference between ‘a gentle blowing’ and “A

                        STILL SMALL VOICE!”  I’m sure the reader will

                        agree.

1Kings 20:38  KJ:       “… with ASHES upon his FACE.”

              NASV:     “… with a bandage over his eyes.”

              COMMENT:  In English, “ASHES” and ‘bandage’ are two

                        different words entirely, so are “FACE” and

                        ‘eyes’.

Ezra 8:36     KJ:       “And they delivered the king’s commissions

                        unto the king’s LIEUTENANTS, …”

              NASV:     “Then they delivered the king’s edicts to the

                        king’s satraps, …”

              COMMENT:  Is the NASV’s ‘satraps’ a “clearer, more

                        easily understood word” than the King James’

                        “LIEUTENANTS”?

Job 19:26     KJ:       “After my skin worms destroy this body, yet

                        IN MY FLESH shall I see God.”

              NASV:     “… Yet without my flesh I shall see God;”

              COMMENT:  The NASV denies the resurrection of the body.

Psalm 2:12    KJ:       “Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, …”

              NASV:     “Do homage to the Son, lest He become angry,

                        …”

Psalm 9:17    KJ:       “The wicked shall be turned INTO HELL, …”

              NASV:     “The wicked will return to Sheol, …”

              COMMENT:  In this verse the NASV has DELETED hell. Is

                        this an attempt to ‘sell more’ NASVs? Also

                        how is it the wicked ‘return to Sheol’ when

                        they have NEVER BEEN THERE BEFORE?

Psalm 72:8    KJ:       “He SHALL have dominion also FROM SEA TO

                        SEA, …”

              NASV:     “May he also rule from sea to sea, …”

              COMMENT:  He (Jesus Christ) SHALL have dominion is

                        watered down to ‘may’ he rule.

Psalm 109:6   KJ:       “Set thou a wicked man over him: and let

                        SATAN stand at his right hand.”

              NASV:     “Appoint a wicked man over him; And let an

                        accuser stand at his right hand.”

              COMMENT:  In this verse in the NASV Satan has been

                        REMOVED.

Eccl. 5:20    KJ:       “… God ANSWERETH [HIM] in the joy of his

                        heart.”

              NASV:     “… God keeps him occupied with the gladness

                        of his heart.”

              COMMENT:  The NASV translators blew this one.

Isaiah 11:3   KJ:       “And shall make him of quick understanding

                        …”

              NASV:     Omitted

              COMMENT:  The verse is speaking about Jesus Christ and

                        says he will be “of quick understanding”. The

                        NASV omits this.

Isaiah 32:2   KJ:       “And A MAN shall be as an hiding place from

                        the wind, …”

              NASV:     “And each will be like a refuge from the

                        wind, …”

              COMMENT:  The “MAN” here can be no one but Christ. 

                        Just another case of setting the Lord Jesus

                        aside, and giving us a substitute.  Think how

                        serious all these corruptions are, and how

                        they destroy the word of God by substitution.

Isaiah 53:10  KJ:       “… when thou shalt make his soul an

                        OFFERING FOR SIN, …”

              NASV:     “… If He would render Himself as a guilt

                        offering, …”

              COMMENT:  This, in our humble opinion, is a very

                        serious perversion.

Daniel 3:25   KJ:       “… and the form of the fourth is like THE

                        SON OF GOD.”

              NASV:     “… and the appearance of the fourth is like

                        a son of the gods!”

              COMMENT:  ‘A son of the (PLURAL) gods’? It was Jesus

                        Christ, THE SON OF GOD, who was in the fiery

                        furnace with Shadrach, Messach, and Abednego.

                        It was Jesus Christ who protected them. And

                        it is  Jesus Christ who saves us from the

                        fiery furnace (i.e. from hell).

Hosea 11:12   KJ:       “… but Judah YET RULETH WITH GOD, AND IS

                        FAITHFUL WITH THE SAINTS.”

              NASV:     “… Judah is also unruly against God, Even

                        against the Holy one who is faithful.”

              COMMENT:  What is this but perversion?

Zech. 11:17   KJ:       “Woe to the IDOL shepherd that leaveth the

                        flock! …”

              NASV:     “Woe to the worthless shepherd Who leaves the

                        flock! …”

              COMMENT:  The NASV missed this one. 

Matt. 2:4     KJ:       “… he (King Herod) DEMANDED of them where

                        Christ should be born.”

              NASV:     “… he began to inquire of them where the

                        Christ was to be born.”

              COMMENT:  King Herod, FURIOUS over the arrival of

                        Jesus, (and wanting to DO AWAY with him) did

                        not ‘inquire’  where Christ should be born.

                        He DEMANDED to know!

Matt. 5:22    KJ:       “But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry

                        with his brother WITHOUT A CAUSE shall be in

                        danger of the judgment: …”

              NASV:     “but I say to you that everyone who is angry

                        with his brother shall be guilty before the

                        court; …”

              COMMENT:  What?  The NASV says you can’t be angry with

                        your brother?!!!  Brothers and sisters: The

                        Apostle Paul was angry and withstood the

                        Apostle Peter to his face (Gal. 2:11).  Jesus

                        was angry with the Church at Pergamos because

                        of the erroneous doctrine of the Nicolaitanes

                        (Rev 2:15). The Bible says to BE ANGRY but

                        sin not (Eph. 4:26) and it says not to let

                        the sun go down on YOUR ANGER (Eph. 4:26). 

                        The KJ is CORRECT: Whosoever is angry with

                        his brother WITHOUT A CAUSE is in danger of

                        the judgment. There is a HUGE difference

                        between those two verses.

Matt. 8:19    KJ:       “And a certain scribe came, and said unto

                        him, MASTER, I will follow thee …”

              NASV:     “And a certain scribe came and said to Him,

                        ‘Teacher, I will follow You …'”

              COMMENT:  Jesus AS MASTER is watered down to ‘teacher’.

Matt. 9:13    KJ:       “… for I am not come to call the righteous,

                        but sinners TO REPENTANCE.”

              NASV:     “… for I did not come to call the

                        righteous, but sinners.”

              COMMENT:  Those last two words in the KJ ARE CRUCIAL.

                        HELL will get all of the sinners who DON’T

                        repent. JESUS will get all the sinners who

                        DO repent!

Matt. 11:23   KJ:       “And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto

                        heaven, shalt be brought down to HELL: …”

              NASV:     “And you, Capernaum, … shall descend to

                        Hades; …”

              COMMENT:  Again, hell is GONE in the NASV.

Matt. 12:6    KJ:       “… That in this place is [ONE] GREATER than

                        the temple.”

              NASV:     “… that something greater than the temple

                        is here.”

Matt. 12:32   KJ:       “… but whosoever speaketh against the Holy

                        Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither

                        in THIS WORLD, neither in THE [WORLD] TO

                        COME.”

              NASV:     “… but whoever shall speak against the Holy

                        Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either

                        in this age, or in the age to come.”

Matt. 12:40   KJ:       “For as Jonas was three days and three nights

                        in the WHALE’S belly; …”

              NASV:     “for just as Jonah was three days and three

                        nights in the belly of the sea-monster; …”

              COMMENT:  The Lord Jesus Christ makes ‘sea monsters’?

Matt. 12:42   KJ:       “… behold, A GREATER THAN SOLOMON [is]

                        here.”

              NASV:     “… behold, something greater than Solomon

                        is here.”

Matt. 13:39   KJ:       “… the harvest is the end of the WORLD;

                        …”

              NASV:     “… the harvest is the end of the age; …”

              COMMENT:  The harvest comes at the END OF THE WORLD.

Matt. 16:18   KJ:       “… upon this rock I will build my church;

                        and the GATES OF HELL shall not prevail

                        against it.”

              NASV:     “… upon this rock I will build My church;

                        and the gates of Hades shall not overpower

                        it.”

              COMMENT:  Hell is gone (again) in the NASV.

Matt. 17:21   KJ:       “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by

                        PRAYER and FASTING.”

              NASV:     Omitted

              COMMENT:  To cast out certain devils requires PRAYER

                        and FASTING. The NASV ignores this.

Matt. 18:11   KJ:       “For the Son of man IS COME to save that

                        which was lost.”

              NASV:     “For the Son of Man has come to save that

                        which was lost.”

              Comment:  The NASV says Jesus Christ ‘has come’ to save

                        that which was lost: a PAST TENSE statement.

                        The NASV implies that ALL who were to be

                        saved, HAVE BEEN saved. NOT TRUE! Anyone

                        TODAY can be saved by Jesus. The correct

                        reading is PRESENT TENSE. This NASV

                        corruption is very subtle. There are NUMEROUS

                        places where the NASV changes verb tense.

Matt. 19:9    KJ:       “And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put

                        away his wife, except [it be] for

                        fornication, and shall marry another,

                        committeth adultery: AND WHOSO MARRIETH HER

                        WHICH IS PUT AWAY DOTH COMMIT ADULTERY.”

              NASV:     “And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife,

                        except for immorality, and marries another

                        commits adultery.”

              COMMENT:  An IMPORTANT verse about marriage, yet the

                        NASV deletes about one third of it.

Matt. 19:17   KJ:       “… WHY CALLEST THOU ME GOOD? …”

              NASV:     “… Why are you asking Me about what is

                        good?”

Matt. 23:8    KJ:       “But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your

                        MASTER, [EVEN] CHRIST; …”

              NASV:     “But do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is

                        your Teacher, and you are all brothers.”

              COMMENT:  MASTER is watered down to ‘teacher’ and ON

                        TOP OF THAT the NASV does not tell us who the

                        teacher is.

Matt. 24:3    KJ:       “… Tell us, … of the end of the WORLD

                        …”

              NASV:     “… Tell us … of the end of the age …”

              COMMENT:  Jesus isn’t being asked about a “new time

                        period”, or a “new dispensation”. He is being

                        asked about the WORLD COMING TO AN END! There

                        is a difference.

Matt. 25:13   KJ:       “… ye know neither the day nor the hour

                        WHEREIN THE SON OF MAN COMETH.”

              NASV:     “… you do not know the day nor the hour.”

              COMMENT:  Who is it that is coming again?  That’s

                        right: Jesus! But, you wouldn’t know from the

                        NASV.

Matt. 27:4    KJ:       “… I have sinned in that I have betrayed

                        THE INNOCENT BLOOD …”

              NASV:     “… I have sinned by betraying innocent

                        blood …”

              COMMENT:  Lots of people are innocent of certain

                        crimes. But, ONLY JESUS CHRIST was “THE”

                        INNOCENT BLOOD.  Think about it.

Matt. 27:27   KJ:       “Then the soldiers … took Jesus into the

                        COMMON HALL, … ”

              NASV:     “Then the soldiers … took Jesus into the

                        Praetorium …”

              COMMENT:  Is the NASV’s ‘Praetorium’ “simpler and more

                        easily understood”, than the King James’

                        COMMON HALL?

Mark 3:5      KJ:       “… his hand was restored WHOLE AS THE

                        OTHER.”

              NASV:     “… and his hand was restored.”

Mark 6:11     KJ:       “And whosoever shall not receive you, nor

                        hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off

                        the dust under your feet for a testimony

                        against them. VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, IT SHALL

                        BE MORE TOLERABLE FOR SODOM AND GOMORRHA IN

                        THE DAY OF JUDGMENT, THAN FOR THAT CITY.”

              NASV:     “And any place that does not receive you or

                        listen to you, as you go out from there,

                        shake off the dust from the soles of your

                        feet for a testimony against them.”

              COMMENT:  An important WARNING from Jesus, but the NASV

                        leaves out about half of it.

Mark 7:16     KJ:       “If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.”

              NASV:     Omitted

              COMMENT:  Numbering verses 14, 15, and then 17 is NOT

                        new math. Note: The NASV leaves out JESUS’

                        COMMAND to HEAR HIM.

Mark 9:24     KJ:       “… Lord, I believe; help thou mine

                        unbelief.”

              NASV:     “…’I do believe; help me in my unbelief.'”

Mark 9:44,46  KJ:       “Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is

                        not quenched.”

              NASV:     This verse, in both Mark 9:44 and Mark 9:46

                        is omitted.

              COMMENT:  Their quote “best ancient manuscripts” are

                        Codex B and Codex Aleph: both of which are

                        the WORST OF ALL MANUSCRIPTS with the most

                        errors. Those MSS have proved to be the MOST

                        UNRELIABLE.

Mark 10:24    KJ:       “… Children, how hard is it FOR THEM THAT

                        TRUST IN RICHES to enter into the kingdom of

                        God!”

              NASV:     “… ‘Children, how hard it is to enter the

                        kingdom of God!'”

              COMMENT:  The problem, as correctly stated in the King

                        James Bible, is TRUSTING IN RICHES.

Mark 11:10    KJ:       “… Blessed [be] the kingdom of our father

                        David, THAT COMETH IN THE NAME OF THE LORD:

                        HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST.”

              NASV:     “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father

                        David; …”

Mark 11:26    KJ:       “But if ye do not forgive, neither will your

                        Father which is in heaven forgive your

                        trespasses.”

              NASV:     Mark 11:26 is omitted entirely but placed in

                        the margin in italics explaining that “later

                        manuscripts add verse 26.”

Mark 13:6     KJ:       “For many shall come in my name, saying, I

                        am [CHRIST]; …”

              NASV:     “Many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am

                        He!’ …”

              COMMENT:  ‘He’ could be ANYBODY.

Mark 15:28    KJ:       “And the scripture was fulfilled, which

                        saith, AND HE WAS NUMBERED WITH THE

                        TRANSGRESSORS.”

              NASV:     Omitted with a marginal note.

Mark 16:6     KJ:       “… Be not affrighted: …”

              NASV:     “… Do not be amazed; …”

              COMMENT:  Being ‘amazed’ and being AFFRIGHTED are

                        different.

Luke 2:33     KJ:       “And JOSEPH and his mother marvelled at those

                        things which were spoken of him.”

              NASV:     “And His father and mother were amazed at the

                        things which were being said about Him.”

              COMMENT:  GOD WAS THE FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST –

                        NOT Joseph! If Jesus had only an earthly

                        father and mother, then he is just any man.

                        If he is just any man, then we are still in

                        our sins. If we are still in our sins, then

                        we are not saved! If we are not saved, then

                        we have a BIG, BIG, problem!

Luke 2:49     KJ:       “… I must be about my Father’s BUSINESS

                        …”

              NASV:     “… I had to be in My Father’s house …”

              COMMENT:  Come on!  Don’t the “scholars” know the

                        difference between BUSINESS and a house?

Luke 4:4      KJ:       “… man shall not live by bread alone, BUT

                        BY EVERY WORD OF GOD.”

              NASV:     “… Man shall not live on bread alone.”

              COMMENT:  Other than bread, what else does man need?

                        The NASV doesn’t say. Only the King James

                        tells us: We need EVERY WORD OF GOD!

Luke 4:8      KJ:       “And Jesus answered and said unto him, GET

                        THEE BEHIND ME, SATAN: for it is written,

                        Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him

                        only shalt thou serve.”

              NASV:     “And Jesus answered and said to him, ‘It is

                        written, You shall worship the Lord your God

                        and serve Him only.'”

              COMMENT:  The NASV omits “Get thee behind me, Satan.”

Luke 4:18     KJ:       “The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon me, because

                        he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to

                        the poor; HE HATH SENT ME TO HEAL THE 

                        BROKENHEARTED, to preach deliverance to the

                        captives, and recovering of sight to the

                        blind, to set at liberty them that are

                        bruised,”

              NASV:     Luke 4:18 omits entirely, “he hath sent me

                        to heal the brokenhearted,”.

Luke 9:55-56  KJ:       “But he turned, and rebuked them, AND SAID,

                        YE KNOW NOT WHAT MANNER OF SPIRIT YE ARE OF.

                        FOR THE SON OF MAN IS NOT COME TO DESTROY

                        MEN’S LIVES, BUT TO SAVE [THEM]. And they

                        went to another village.”

              NASV:     “But He turned and rebuked them.  And they

                        went on to another village.”  In the margin

                        they say “Later manuscripts add, ‘and said,

                        You do not know what kind of spirit you are

                        of.  For the Son of Man did not come to

                        destroy men’s lives, but to save them.'”

              COMMENT:  Again, this casts doubt on the veracity, the

                        authenticity of this passage.

Luke 11:2     KJ:       “And he said unto them, When ye pray, say,

                        OUR FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN, Hallowed be

                        thy name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE,

                        AS IN HEAVEN, SO IN EARTH.”

              NASV:     “And He said to them, ‘When you pray, say:

                        Father, hallowed be Thy name.  Thy kingdom

                        come.'”

Luke 11:4     KJ:       “… And lead us not into temptation; BUT

                        DELIVER US FROM EVIL.”

              NASV:     “… And lead us not into temptation.”

              COMMENT:  Half of the verse is left out.

Luke 11:29    KJ:       “… but the sign of Jonas THE PROPHET.”

              NASV:     “… but the sign of Jonah.”

Luke 16:23    KJ:       “And in HELL he lift up his eyes, …”

              NASV:     “And in Hades he lifted up his eyes, …”

              COMMENT:  Again, hell is DELETED from the NASV.

Luke 17:36    KJ:       “Two [men] shall be in the field; the one

                        shall be taken, and the other left.”

              NASV:     Omitted

Luke 21:8     KJ:       “… for many shall come in my name, saying,

                        I am [CHRIST]; …”

              NASV:     “… for many will come in My name, saying,

                        ‘I am He’, …”

              COMMENT:  Who is this ‘He’?

Luke 23:17    KJ:       “(For of necessity he must release one unto

                        them at the feast.)”

              NASV:     Luke 23:17 is omitted but has a marginal note

                        stating:  “Some manuscripts insert verse 17,

                        ‘Now he was obliged to release to them at the

                        feast one prisoner.'”

Luke 23:23    KJ:       “… And the voices of them AND OF THE CHIEF

                        PRIESTS prevailed.”

              NASV:     “… And their voices began to prevail.”

Luke 23:42    KJ:       “And he said unto Jesus, LORD, remember me

                        when thou comest into thy kingdom.”

              NASV:     “And he was saying, ‘Jesus, remember me when

                        You come in Your kingdom!'”

              COMMENT:  There is no explanation for leaving out

                        “LORD”.  Note: The thief GOT SAVED, so he

                        addressed Jesus as LORD!!!

Luke 23:45    KJ:       “The sun was DARKENED, …”

              NASV:     “the sun being obscured; …”

              COMMENT:  The crucifixion of Jesus occurred at the

                        time of a full moon.  Therefore, a natural

                        eclipse (i.e an obscuration of the sun) was

                        IMPOSSIBLE.

Luke 24:40    KJ:       “AND WHEN HE HAD THUS SPOKEN, HE SHEWED THEM

                        [HIS] HANDS AND [HIS] FEET.

              NASV:     Luke 24:40 is omitted with a marginal note,

                        reading, “Some manuscripts add verse 40, ‘And

                        when He had said this, He showed them His

                        hands and His feet.'”

              COMMENT:  This again casts doubt on such a wonderful

                        verse.

Luke 24:46    KJ:       “… and thus it BEHOVED Christ to suffer, 

                        …”

              NASV:     “… the Christ should suffer …”

              COMMENT:  The NASV misses a HUGE POINT:  It BEHOVED

                        Christ to suffer. He did it WILLINGLY.

John 1:3      KJ:       “All things were made BY him; …”

              NASV:     “All things came into being through Him; …”

              COMMENT:  “BY” and ‘through’ are totally different.

                        Think about it.

John 1:10     KJ:       “He was in the world, and the world was made

                        BY him, …”

              NASV:     “… and the world was made through Him, 

                        …”

              COMMENT:  Again, “BY” and ‘through’ are not the same.

John 1:42     KJ:       “And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus

                        beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son

                        of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, WHICH

                        IS BY INTERPRETATION, A STONE.”

              NASV:     “He brought him (Simon) to Jesus. Jesus

                        looked at him, and said, ‘You are Simon the

                        son of John; you shall be called Cephas’

                        (which translated means Peter).” 

              COMMENT:  The NASV  CHANGES  “WHICH IS BY

                        INTERPRETATION, A STONE”  to ‘which

                        translated means Peter’. This CHANGE is

                        DISASTROUS. Jesus calls Peter “A STONE” to

                        differentiate Peter from Jesus who is THE

                        ROCK (1Co. 10:4). Thus, when Jesus says:

                        upon THIS ROCK (not stone) I will build my

                        Church (Matt. 16:18) Jesus is NOT referring

                        to Peter! And that is one of many errors in

                        Catholic doctrine.

John 3:13     KJ:       “And NO MAN hath ascended up to heaven, but

                        he that came down from heaven, [even] the Son

                        of man which is in heaven.”

              NASV:     “And no one has ascended into heaven, but

                        He who descended from heaven, even the Son

                        of Man.”  

              COMMENT:  Not true, NASV. Remember the angels on

                        Jacob’s ladder? They ascended and descended.

                        The KJ has the correct reading and that is:

                        NO MAN hath ascended up to heaven … ALSO,

                        remember: Satan went into heaven and made

                        accusations against Job (Job 1:6).

John 4:24     KJ:       “God is [A] Spirit: …”

              NASV:     “God is spirit; …”

              COMMENT:  The NASV says: “God is spirit” inferring ALL

                        spirits are of God. NOT TRUE. We know there

                        are evil spirits, but in God there is NO

                        evil. Thus, the KJ is correct: God is “A”

                        spirit.

John 5:4      KJ:       “For an angel went down at a certain season

                        into the pool, and troubled the water:

                        whosoever then first after the troubling of

                        the water stepped in was made whole of

                        whatsoever disease he had.”

              NASV:     John 5:4 is omitted but refers to a marginal

                        note which says, “Many authorities insert

                        [verse 4] wholly or in part.”

              COMMENT:  This injects another doubt as to the

                        authority and accuracy of God’s word.

John 5:16     KJ:       “And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus,

                        AND SOUGHT TO SLAY HIM, because he had done

                        these things on the sabbath day.”

              NASV:     “And for this reason the Jews were

                        persecuting Jesus, because He was doing these

                        things on the Sabbath.”

              COMMENT:  There is no reason given for omitting this

                        phrase or for brushing over the fact that

                        the Jews wanted to MURDER Jesus.

John 6:33     KJ:       “For the bread of God is HE which cometh down

                        from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.”

              NASV:     “For the bread of God is that which comes

                        down out of heaven, and gives life to the

                        world.”

John 6:47     KJ:       “… He that believeth ON ME hath everlasting

                        life.”

              NASV:     “… he who believes has eternal life”.

              COMMENT:  He who believes what? The NASV doesn’t say.

                        We MUST believe ON JESUS.

John 6:69     KJ:       “And we BELIEVE and ARE SURE that thou art

                        that CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD.”

              NASV:     “And we have believed and have come to know

                        that You are the Holy One of God.”

              COMMENT:  What happened to CHRIST?  And, what happened

                        to him being the Son of the LIVING GOD?

John 7:53     KJ:       “And every man went unto his own house.”

              NASV:     “And everyone went to his home;”

              COMMENT:  There is a marginal note here stating that

                        John 7:53-8:11 is not found in most of the

                        old manuscripts. THIS IS NOT TRUE.  The

                        British Museum has 73 manuscripts and 61 have

                        this passage.  Doubtless Aleph and B are

                        referred to as the “old manuscripts” and they

                        are TWO OF THE WORST as we have noted before.

John 8:9      KJ:       “And they which heard [it], BEING CONVICTED

                        BY [THEIR OWN] CONSCIENCE, went out one by

                        one, …”

              NASV:     “And when they heard it, they began to go out

                        one by one, …”

              COMMENT:  No reason is given for omitting this phrase.

John 8:59     KJ:       “Then took they up stones to cast at him: but

                        Jesus hid himself, and went out of the

                        temple, GOING THROUGH THE MIDST OF THEM, AND

                        SO PASSED BY.”

              NASV:     “Therefore they picked up stones to throw at

                        Him; but Jesus hid Himself, and went out of

                        the temple.”

              COMMENT:  Quite a different thought.

John 9:4      KJ:       “I must work the works of him that sent me,

                        …”

              NASV:     “We must work the works of Him who sent Me,

                        …”

John 9:35     KJ:       “… Dost thou believe on the SON OF GOD?”

              NASV:     “… Do you believe in the Son of Man?”

John 10:30    KJ:       “I and [MY] Father are one.”

              NASV:     “‘I and the Father are one.'”

              COMMENT:  Notice: The KJ’s MY FATHER is replaced by

                        ‘the’ father. Thus, the NASV deletes the

                        PERSONAL relationship of “MY FATHER” between

                        Jesus and the heavenly Father.

John 14:16    KJ:       “And I will pray the Father, and he shall

                        give you another COMFORTER, …”

              NASV:     “And I will ask the Father, and He will give

                        you another Helper, …” 

John 14:26    KJ:       “But the COMFORTER, [which is] the Holy

                        Ghost, …”

              NASV:     “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, …”

John 15:26    KJ:       “But when the COMFORTER is come, …”

              NASV:     “When the Helper comes, …”

John 16:7     KJ:       “… for if I go not away, the COMFORTER

                        will not come …”

              NASV:     “… for if I do not go away, the Helper

                        shall not come …”

John 17:5     KJ:       “And now, O Father, glorify thou me with

                        thine own self WITH THE GLORY WHICH I HAD

                        WITH THEE BEFORE THE WORLD WAS.”

              NASV:     “… glorify Thou Me together with Thyself, 

                        …'”

John 18:28    KJ:       “Then led they Jesus … unto the HALL OF

                        JUDGMENT: …”

              NASV:     “They led Jesus … into the Praetorium; …”

              COMMENT:  Is the NASV’s Praetorium really “simpler,

                        and more understandable” than the KJ’s HALL

                        OF JUDGMENT?

Acts 2:30     KJ:       “… that God had sworn with an oath to him,

                        that of the fruit of his loins, ACCORDING TO

                        THE FLESH, HE WOULD RAISE UP CHRIST to sit

                        on his throne;” 

              NASV:     “… seat one of his descendants on his

                        throne,”

              COMMENT:  The NASV totally misses the point. It wasn’t

                        just ‘a descendant’ that would sit on the

                        throne; it was GOD ALMIGHTY (Jesus Christ).

Acts 2:47     KJ:       “… And the Lord ADDED TO THE CHURCH daily

                        such as SHOULD BE saved.”

              NASV:     “… the Lord was adding to their number day

                        by day those who were BEING SAVED.”

              COMMENT:  The people that were added were added to THE

                        CHURCH (not to a generic ‘number’). Also,

                        salvation is an IMMEDIATE event. It is NOT

                        A PROCESS. People are either saved or they

                        are not. They are NOT ‘being’ saved.

Acts 3:13     KJ:       “The God of Abraham, … hath glorified HIS

                        SON Jesus; …”

              NASV:     “The God of Abraham … has glorified His

                        Servant Jesus, …”

              COMMENT:  Jesus as GOD’S SON has been watered down to

                        just ‘servant’.

Acts 3:26     KJ:       “… God, having raised up HIS SON Jesus,

                        …”

              NASV:     “… God raised up His Servant, …”

              COMMENT:  Again, the NASV waters down Jesus as GOD’S

                        SON to just ‘servant’ AND the NASV doesn’t

                        even NAME the ‘servant’.

Acts 4:13     KJ:       “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and

                        John, and perceived that they were unlearned

                        and IGNORANT men, …”

              NASV:     “Now as they observed the confidence of Peter

                        and John, and understood that they were

                        uneducated and untrained men, …”

              COMMENT:  Untrained? Untrained? WHAT? Peter and John

                        had been WITH JESUS for SOME TIME. They were

                        NOT untrained! JESUS HAD TRAINED THEM! They

                        were trained BY GOD ALMIGHTY: THE BEST

                        TRAINER in the UNIVERSE! They were, however,

                        ignorant.

Acts 4:27     KJ:       “… thy HOLY CHILD Jesus, whom thou hast

                        anointed, …”

              NASV:     “… Thy holy Servant Jesus, whom Thou didst

                        anoint, …”

              COMMENT:  Again, the NASV waters down Jesus. This time

                        GOD’S HOLY CHILD is watered down to just

                        a ‘holy servant’.

Acts 4:30     KJ:       “… thy HOLY CHILD Jesus.”

              NASV:     “… Thy holy Servant Jesus.”

              COMMENT:  One more time: The NASV waters down Jesus.

                        GOD’S HOLY CHILD is watered down to ‘holy

                        servant’.

Acts 8:9      KJ:       “… a certain man, … used sorcery, and

                        BEWITCHED the people …”

              NASV:     “… a certain man … who … practicing

                        magic … and astonishing the people …”

              COMMENT:  No! No! No!  He didn’t ‘astonish’ the

                        people (as if they were being

                        entertained/amazed). No, he BEWITCHED them

                        (to their DETRIMENT).

Acts 8:37     KJ:       “And Philip said, IF THOU BELIEVEST WITH ALL

                        THINE HEART, THOU MAYEST.  And he answered

                        and said, I BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE

                        SON OF GOD.”

              NASV:     Acts 8:37 is omitted with a marginal note

                        stating, “Late manuscripts insert verse

                        37,’And Philip said, If you believe with all

                        your heart, you may.  And he answered and

                        said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son

                        of God.'”

              COMMENT:  Both Codex Aleph and B leave this verse out

                        and they are TWO OF THE WORST manuscripts;

                        again this casts doubt upon another section

                        of God’s word.

Acts 9:5-6    KJ:       “And he said, Who art thou, Lord?  And the

                        Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest:

                        [IT IS] HARD FOR THEE TO KICK AGAINST THE

                        PRICKS.  AND HE TREMBLING AND ASTONISHED

                        SAID, LORD, WHAT WILT THOU HAVE ME TO DO? 

                        And the Lord [said] unto him, Arise, and go

                        into the city, and it shall be told thee what

                        thou must do.”

              NASV:     “And he said, ‘Who art Thou, Lord?’ And He

                        said, ‘I am Jesus whom you are persecuting,

                        but rise, and enter the city, and it shall

                        be told you what you must do.'”

              COMMENT:  Truly the translators have emasculated these

                        two verses and give no reason at all for

                        their omission.  Again they would inject a

                        doubt into the mind of one who believes the

                        Bible to be the verbally inspired word of

                        God.

Acts 9:20     KJ:       “And straightway he preached CHRIST …”

              NASV:     “and immediately he began to proclaim Jesus

                        …”

              COMMENT:  CHRIST is missing.

Acts 10:37    KJ:       “THAT WORD, [I say], ye know, which was

                        PUBLISHED throughout all Judaea, and began

                        from Galilee, after the baptism which John

                        preached;”

              NASV:     “you yourselves know the thing which took

                        place throughout all Judea, starting from

                        Galilee, after the baptism which John

                        proclaimed.”

              COMMENT:  Notice how VAGUE the NASV is. It says: ‘you

                        know the thing that happened …’ but then

                        doesn’t say WHAT HAPPENED!  The KJ tells us:

                        THE WORD WAS PUBLISHED THROUGHOUT ALL JUDEA.

Acts 12:4     KJ:       “… after EASTER …”

              NASV:     “… after the Passover … ”

              COMMENT:  Herod was a HEATHEN King so he did NOT regard

                        Passover. He would have regarded Easter,

                        though. Note: Passover is BIBLICAL. But

                        research Easter and you will find out it

                        is PAGAN.

Acts 15:11    KJ:       “But we believe that through the grace of the

                        Lord Jesus CHRIST we shall be saved, even as

                        they.”

              NASV:     “But we believe that we are saved through the

                        grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as

                        they also are.”

              COMMENT:  What happened to “CHRIST”?

Acts 15:34    KJ:       “Notwithstanding it pleased Silas to abide

                        there still.”

              NASV:     Acts 15:34 is omitted with a marginal note,

                        “Some manuscripts add verse 34, ‘But it

                        seemed good to Silas to remain there.'”

              COMMENT:  Another doubt cast on God’s word.

Acts 16:31    KJ:       “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus

                        CHRIST, and thou shalt be saved, and thy

                        house.”

              NASV:     “And they said, ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus,

                        and you shall be saved, you and your

                        household.'”

              COMMENT:  Again they omit “Christ”.

Acts 17:22    KJ:       “Then Paul stood in the midst of MARS’ hill,

                        and said, [Ye] men of Athens, I perceive that

                        in all things ye are TOO SUPERSTITIOUS.”

              NASV:     “And Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus

                        and said, ‘Men of Athens, I observe that you

                        are very religious in all respects.”

              Comment:  Being very religious and TOO SUPERSTITIOUS

                        are entirely different!  Also, is the NASV’s

                        ‘Areopagus’ “simpler, and more

                        understandable”, than the King James’ MARS’

                        HILL?

Acts 17:29    KJ:       “… we ought not to think that the GODHEAD

                        is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, …”

              NASV:     “… we ought not to think that the Divine

                        Nature is like gold or silver or stone, …”

              COMMENT:  The GODHEAD is watered down to just ‘divine

                        nature’.

Acts 18:12    KJ:       “And when Gallio was the DEPUTY of Achaia,

                        …”

              NASV:     “… while Gallio was proconsul of Achaia,

                        …”

              COMMENT:  Is the NASV’s ‘proconsul’ a “simpler and

                        more easily understandable word” than the

                        King James’ DEPUTY?

Acts 20:23-24 KJ:       “… the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every

                        city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide

                        me. BUT NONE OF THESE THINGS MOVE ME, neither

                        count I my life dear unto myself, so that I

                        might finish my course with joy, …”

              NASV:     The following is omitted, “But none of these

                        things move me,” and no reason is given for

                        the omission.

              COMMENT:  Note: The Apostle Paul was NOT MOVED by his

                        circumstances. Thus, he could preach the

                        Gospel with BOLDNESS!  May we have the same

                        attitude Paul had and may we also preach

                        with BOLDNESS! Thanks to the King James

                        Bible for giving us insight into this man

                        of God.

Acts 23:9     KJ:       “… let us not fight against God.”

              NASV:     Omitted

Acts 24:6-7   KJ:       “Who also hath gone about to profane the

                        temple: whom we took, and would have judged

                        according to our law. But the chief captain

                        Lysias came [upon us], and with great

                        violence took [him] away out of our hands,”

              NASV:     Most of this has been omitted and only a weak

                        explanation is given in the margin.

Acts 24:14    KJ:       “But this I confess unto thee, that after

                        the way which they call HERESY, so worship

                        I the God of my fathers, …”

              NASV:     “But this I admit to you, that according to

                        the Way which they call a sect I do serve the

                        God of our fathers, …”

              COMMENT:  The unbelievers that came against the Apostle

                        Paul did NOT think Christianity was a ‘sect’.

                        No! They thought it was HERESY.

Acts 25:23    KJ:       

              NASV:     “Accompanied” is spelled wrong.  They have

                        it “accompained.”

Acts 28:29    KJ:       “And when he had said these words, the Jews

                        departed, and had great reasoning among

                        themselves.”

              NASV:     Acts 28:29 is omitted with a marginal note

                        saying, “Some manuscripts add verse 29 …”

              COMMENT:  The vast majority of MSS add this verse! 

                        This is still another doubt cast upon the

                        Word of God.

Romans 1:16   KJ:       “For I am not ashamed of the gospel OF

                        CHRIST: …”

              NASV:     “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it

                        is the power of God …”

              COMMENT:  Whose gospel? The key words are: OF CHRIST.

                        The NASV leaves us guessing. 

Romans 1:18   KJ:       “… men, who HOLD THE TRUTH in

                        unrighteousness;”

              NASV:     “… men, who suppress the truth in

                        unrighteousness,”

Romans 1:25   KJ:       “Who CHANGED the truth of God INTO a lie,

                        …”

              NASV:     “… they exchanged the truth of God for a

                        lie, …”

              COMMENT:  Those 2 verses are NOT the same.

Romans 6:18   KJ:       “Being then made free from sin, ye

                        became the SERVANTS of righteousness.”

              NASV:     “and having been freed from sin, you

                        became slaves of righteousness.”

              COMMENT:  Are we ‘slaves’ or “SERVANTS”? Answer:

                        SERVANTS! Think about the difference.

Romans 6:19   KJ:       “… now yield your members SERVANTS to

                        righteousness …”

              NASV:     “… so now present your members as

                        slaves to righteousness, …”

              COMMENT:  Again, are we ‘slaves’ or “SERVANTS”?

                        Answer: SERVANTS! There is a difference.

Romans 6:22   KJ:       “But now being made free from sin, and

                        become SERVANTS to God, …”

              NASV:     “But now having been freed from sin and

                        enslaved to God, …”

              COMMENT:  WHAT? ‘Enslaved to God’? No! No! No! We

                        are “SERVANTS” to God, as properly

                        stated in the King James Bible.

Romans 13:9   KJ:       “… Thou shalt not bear false witness, …”

              NASV:     Omitted

              COMMENT:  The Bible says that all liars (false

                        witnesses) go to the lake of fire

                        (Rev. 21:8). So, why leave this out? 

Romans 14:1   KJ:       “Him that is weak in the faith receive ye,

                        [but] not to DOUBTFUL disputations.”

              NASV:     “Now accept the one who is weak in faith,

                        but not for the purpose of passing judgment

                        on his opinions.”

              COMMENT:  Notice: The KJ does NOT say we cannot

                        have disputes; only that we should not

                        have DOUBTFUL disputes. What are

                        doubtful disputes? Whether we can ‘eat

                        all things’ or only ‘herbs'(Romans 14:2)

                        or whether we ‘esteem every day alike’

                        or ‘one day over another’ (Romans 14:5).

                        But, in the NASV we would NEVER DISPUTE

                        ANYTHING including KEY DOCTRINE like

                        Paul and Barnabus going up to Jerusalem

                        concerning whether circumcision was

                        necessary for salvation (Acts 15:1-2).

                        The NASV would also come against both

                        Titus 1:9 where we are to use sound

                        doctrine to CONVINCE THE GAINSAYERS

                        and 2Tim. 3:16 where ALL SCRIPTURE is

                        profitable for REPROOF and for

                        CORRECTION.

Romans 15:19  KJ:       “Through mighty signs and wonders, by the

                        power of the Spirit OF GOD; …”

              NASV:     “in the power of signs and wonders, in the

                        power of the Spirit; so that from Jerusalem

                        and round about …”

Romans 16:24  KJ:       “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with

                        you all. Amen.”

              NASV:     Romans 16:24 is omitted with a marginal note

                        stating, “Some ancient manuscripts add verse

                        24, ‘The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be

                        with you all.  Amen.'”

              COMMENT:  The vast majority add this verse, not just

                        some.

1Cor. 1:18    KJ:       “For the preaching of the cross is to them

                        that perish foolishness; but unto us which

                        ARE SAVED it is the power of God.” 

              NASV:     “For the word of the cross is to those who

                        are perishing foolishness, but to us who are

                        being saved it is the power of God.” 

              COMMENT:  ‘Being saved’? AGAIN, the NASV is teaching

                        that salvation is a PROCESS. NOT TRUE. It is

                        an IMMEDIATE EVENT.

1Cor. 1:21    KJ:       “… it pleased God by the FOOLISHNESS OF

                        PREACHING to save them that believe.”

              NASV:     “… God was well pleased through the

                        foolishness of the message preached to save

                        those who believe.”

              COMMENT:  Contrary to what the NASV says, THE GOSPEL

                        MESSAGE IS NOT FOOLISHNESS. 

1Cor. 1:22    KJ:       “For the Jews REQUIRE a sign, …”

              NASV:     “For indeed Jews ask for signs, …”

1Cor. 5:4     KJ:       “In the name of our Lord Jesus CHRIST, when

                        ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with

                        the power of our Lord Jesus CHRIST,”

              NASV:     “In the name of the Lord Jesus, when you are

                        assembled, and I with you in spirit, with the

                        power of our Lord Jesus,”

              COMMENT:  IN BOTH CASES THE NAME “CHRIST” is omitted

                        with no reason given.  Why do the translators

                        of the NASV dislike the name “CHRIST” so

                        much?

1Cor. 5:7     KJ:       “… For even Christ our passover is

                        sacrificed FOR US:”

              NASV:     “… For Christ our Passover also has been

                        sacrificed.”

              COMMENT:  If Christ is not sacrificed FOR US we cannot

                        be saved! Also, Christ’s WHOLE PURPOSE was

                        to be sacrificed for us!  The NASV misses

                        the point don’t you think?

1Cor. 6:20    KJ:       “For ye are bought with a price: therefore

                        glorify God in your body, AND IN YOUR SPIRIT,

                        WHICH ARE GOD’S.”

              NASV:     “For you have been bought with a price:

                        therefore glorify God in your body.”

1Cor. 9:1     KJ:       “… have I not seen Jesus CHRIST our Lord?

                        …”

              NASV:     “… Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? …”

              COMMENT:  Again, there is no reason given for omitting

                        the name “CHRIST”. 

1Cor. 9:27    KJ:       “But I keep … my body, … into subjection:

                        lest … I myself should be a CASTAWAY.”

              NASV:     “but I buffet my body … lest … I myself

                        should be disqualified.”

              COMMENT:  Being a CASTAWAY and being disqualified are

                        VERY DIFFERENT. Think about it.

1Cor. 11:24   KJ:       “And when he had given thanks, he brake [it],

                        and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which

                        is BROKEN for you: …”

              NASV:     “and when He had given thanks, He broke it,

                        and said, ‘This is My body, which is for you;

                        do this in remembrance of Me.'”

              COMMENT:  The NASV misses a HUGE point: Christ’s body

                        WAS BROKEN for us. Also notice: The NASV

                        does not say what to ‘do’ with the bread.

                        The King James is clear: “Take, EAT: …”

1Cor. 16:23   KJ:       “The grace of our Lord Jesus CHRIST [be] with

                        you.”

              NASV:     “The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.”

              COMMENT:  Why do they keep eliminating the name

                        “Christ”?

2Cor. 2:15    KJ:       “For we are unto God a sweet savour of

                        Christ, in them THAT ARE SAVED, …”

              NASV:     “For we are a fragrance of Christ to God

                        among those who are being saved …”

              COMMENT:  Again? The NASV is teaching salvation is a

                        PROCESS. WRONG! It is an IMMEDIATE EVENT.

2Cor. 2:17    KJ:       “For we are not as many, which CORRUPT the

                        word of God: …”

              NASV:     “For we are not like many, peddling the word

                        of God, …”

              COMMENT:  Peddling and CORRUPTING are VERY DIFFERENT.

                        ‘New’ versions like the NASV try and hide

                        from the truth they are CORRUPTING the word

                        of God.

2Cor. 5:17    KJ:       “… behold, ALL THINGS ARE BECOME NEW.”

              NASV:     “… behold, new things have come.”

 

              COMMENT:  Note: The NASV CHANGED THE VERB TENSE to past

                        tense. This is incorrect as the Christian

                        walk is a DAILY (present tense) walk where

                        all things ARE BECOME new.  New situations

                        happen for the Christian DAILY. This is not

                        the only place where the NASV changes verb

                        tense.

2Cor. 10:4    KJ:       “(For the weapons of our warfare [are] not

                        carnal, BUT MIGHTY THROUGH GOD to the pulling

                        down of strong holds;)”

              NASV:     “for the weapons of our warfare are not of

                        the flesh, but divinely powerful for the

                        destruction of fortresses.”

2Cor. 10:5    KJ:       “Casting down IMAGINATIONS, and every high

                        thing …” 

              NASV:     We are destroying speculations and every

                        lofty thing …”

              COMMENT:  It’s IMAGINATIONS that can sometimes BAIT US

                        into sin.

2Cor. 11:31   KJ:       “The God and Father of OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST,

                        …”

              NASV:     “The God and Father of the Lord Jesus, …”

              COMMENT:  We ask in all sincerity, “Are the translators

                        anxious to get rid of the name CHRIST

                        altogether?”

Gal. 2:20     KJ:       “I AM CRUCIFIED with Christ: nevertheless I

                        LIVE; …”

              NASV:     “I have been crucified with Christ; and it

                        is no longer I who live, …””

              COMMENT:  The NASV is saying their crucifixion is over!

                        NOT TRUE. The believers crucifixion is an

                        ongoing, PRESENT TENSE, transaction. Also,

                        we are not ‘dead’ the way the NASV implies.

Gal. 5:12     KJ:       “I would they were even cut off which trouble

                        you.”

              NASV:     “Would that those who are troubling you would

                        even MUTILATE themselves.”

              COMMENT:  WHAT?  The NASV says the Apostle Paul wanted

                        people to be MUTILATED?  Come on! What kind

                        of PERVERSION is the NASV teaching?

Gal. 6:17     KJ:       “… for I bear IN my body the marks of the

                        LORD JESUS.”

              NASV:     “… for I bear on my body the brand-marks

                        of Jesus.”

              COMMENT:  The translators don’t seem to like the name

                        “Lord” either. Also, we are NOT talking about

                        CATTLE BRANDING here! The marks of the Lord

                        Jesus are IN our body, NOT on.

Eph. 3:14     KJ:       “For this cause I bow my knees unto the

                        Father OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST,”

              NASV:     “For this reason, I bow my knees before the

                        Father,”

              COMMENT:  Which Father is the NASV talking about? Satan

                        is a father (the “father of lies”). Only the

                        KJ says: It is the Father OF THE LORD JESUS

                        CHRIST. 

Eph. 5:1      KJ:       “Be ye therefore FOLLOWERS of God, …”  

              NASV:     “Therefore be imitators of God, …”

              Comment:  The NASV documents Satan’s position EXACTLY.

                        Think about it: Only Satan tries to imitate

                        God as Satan wants to be worshipped AS God.

                        In Isa. 14:14 it quotes Satan as saying: “…

                        I will BE LIKE the most high.”. Born again

                        believers cannot imitate God. We can’t run

                        the universe! We can only FOLLOW God.

                        Remember, Jesus DID NOT tell his “fishers of

                        men” to imitate him. Jesus said:  “follow me

                        …”. 

Eph. 5:9      KJ:       “(For the FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT [is] in all

                        goodness and righteousness and truth;)”

              NASV:     “(for the fruit of the light consists in all

                        goodness and righteousness and truth),”

              COMMENT:  Who/what is this ‘light’ that the NASV is

                        referring to? Also, “SPIRIT” and ‘light’ are

                        NOT the same.

Philip. 2:6   KJ:       “Who, being in the form of God, thought it

                        not robbery TO BE EQUAL WITH GOD:”

              NASV:     “who, although He existed in the form of

                        God, did not regard equality with God a thing

                        to be grasped,”

              COMMENT:  Those 2 verses are DIFFERENT.

Philip. 3:8   KJ:       “… DUNG, …”

              NASV:     “… rubbish …”

              COMMENT:  I have rubbish on the top of my office desk,

                        but I don’t want “DUNG” there!!!

Philip. 3:21  KJ:       “Who shall change our VILE BODY, that it may

                        be fashioned like unto his glorious body,

                        …”

              NASV:     “who will transform the body of our humble

                        state into conformity with the body of His

                        glory,”

              COMMENT:  ‘Humble body’?  The problem is that our

                        bodies are VILE.  Our heart is desperately

                        WICKED (Jer. 17:9). Our flesh is SINFUL

                        (Romans 8:3). There is no good thing that

                        DWELLS in our flesh (Romans 7:18) etc.

Col. 1:14     KJ:       “In whom we have redemption THROUGH HIS

                        BLOOD, [even] the forgiveness of sins:”

              NASV:     “in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness

                        of sins.”

              COMMENT:  NASV omits “through his blood”.  Why omit

                        the blood? This omission can be traced, as

                        usual, to the manuscripts classed as “Neutral

                        Texts” by Westcott and Hort.  These are in

                        agreement with the Vatican and Sinaitic

                        manuscripts: two of the WORST manuscripts.

                        Remember: Without the shedding of blood there

                        is NO REMISSION (Heb. 9:22).

Col. 1:16     KJ:       “For BY HIM were all things created, …”

              NASV:     “For in Him all things were created, …”

              COMMENT:  “BY” and ‘in’ are NOT the same.

Col. 2:2      KJ:       “… to the acknowledgement of the mystery

                        OF GOD, AND OF THE FATHER, AND OF CHRIST.”

              NASV:     “… in a true knowledge of God’s mystery,

                        that is, Christ Himself,”

              COMMENT:  God the FATHER is OMITTED.

Col. 2:11     KJ:       “… in putting off the body of THE SINS of

                        the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:”

              NASV:     “… in the removal of the body of the flesh

                        by the circumcision of Christ;”

Col. 3:2      KJ:       “Set your AFFECTION on things above, …”

              NASV:     “Set your mind on the things above, …”

              COMMENT:  The ‘mind’ can be an issue, but like the

                        King James says: The HEART (our AFFECTION)

                        is the BIGGER issue. See also Proverbs 4:23.

1Thes. 2:19   KJ:       “… in the presence of our Lord Jesus CHRIST

                        at his coming?”

              NASV:     “… in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His

                        coming?”

1Thes. 3:11   KJ:       “Now God himself and our Father, and our

                        Lord Jesus CHRIST, direct our way unto you.”

              NASV:     “Now may our God and Father Himself and Jesus

                        our Lord direct our way to you;”

1Thes. 5:22   KJ:       “Abstain from ALL APPEARANCE of evil.”

              NASV:     “abstain from every form of evil.”

              COMMENT:  We SHOULD abstain from every FORM of evil.

                        But, MORE THAN THAT, we are to abstain from

                        ALL APPEARANCE of evil.

1Tim. 1:1     KJ:       “… and LORD JESUS CHRIST, [which is] our

                        hope;”

              NASV:     “… and of Christ Jesus, who is our hope;”

1Tim. 1:17    KJ:       “… the only WISE God, [be] honour and glory

                        …”

              NASV:     “… the only God, be honor and glory …”

1Tim. 3:16    KJ:       “… GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, …”

              NASV:     “… He who was revealed in the flesh, …”

              COMMENT:  WHO is ‘he’? He could be ANYBODY!  Yours

                        truly is a ‘he’ and I have been seen in the

                        flesh every day, but that DOESN’T COMPARE to

                        GOD BEING MANIFEST in the flesh!

1Tim. 5:21    KJ:       “I charge [thee] before God, and the LORD

                        JESUS CHRIST, …”

              NASV:     “I solemnly charge you in the presence of

                        God and of Christ Jesus …”

1Tim. 6:1     KJ:       “… that the name of God and HIS DOCTRINE

                        be not BLASPHEMED.”

              NASV:     “… that the name of God and OUR doctrine

                        may not be spoken against.”

              COMMENT:  The doctrine we preach is HIS (i.e. God’s).

                        It is not ‘our’ doctrine as the NASV states.

1Tim. 6:5     KJ:       “… men of corrupt minds, and destitute of

                        the truth, SUPPOSING that GAIN IS GODLINESS:

                        FROM SUCH WITHDRAW THYSELF.”

              NASV:     “… men of depraved mind and deprived of

                        the truth, WHO SUPPOSE that GODLINESS IS A

                        MEANS OF GAIN.”

              COMMENT:  The NASV twists this verse. Re-read it

                        carefully. Also note: The NASV deletes the

                        command for us to withdraw ourselves from

                        such people.

1Tim. 6:10    KJ:       “For the love of money is THE root of all

                        evil: …”

              NASV:     “For the love of money is a root of all sorts

                        of evil, …”

              COMMENT:  There is a big difference between the NASV’s

                        ‘a’ root and the correct King James reading

                        of “THE” root.

1Tim. 6:20    KJ:       “… avoiding … oppositions of SCIENCE

                        falsely so called:”

              NASV:     “… avoiding … the opposing arguments of

                        what is falsely called ‘knowledge’-”

              COMMENT:  It’s NOT ‘knowledge’ that sometimes attacks

                        the gospel, it’s “SCIENCE” falsely so called.

                        For example: The theory of evolution, which,

                        BTW, has been proven wrong at some good

                        creationist web sites, like:

                        http://www.drdino.com

                        http://www.answersingenesis.org

                        http://www.icr.org

2Tim 1:7      KJ:       “For God hath not given us the spirit of

                        fear; but of power, and of love, and of

                        a SOUND MIND.”

              NASV:     “For God has not given us a spirit of

                        timidity, but of power and love and

                        discipline.”

              COMMENT:  God has given us a SOUND MIND (KJ). But,

                        it is GONE in the NASV.

2Tim. 2:15    KJ:       “STUDY to shew thyself approved unto God,

                        …”

              NASV:     “Be diligent to present yourself approved

                        to God …”

              COMMENT:  We are supposed to STUDY the word of God.

2Tim. 2:25    KJ:       “… instructing those that OPPOSE

                        THEMSELVES; …” 

              NASV:     “… correcting those who are in opposition;

                        …”

              COMMENT:  The NASV is exactly backwards.

2Tim. 3:3     KJ:       “… despisers of THOSE THAT ARE GOOD,”

              NASV:     “… haters of good,”

              COMMENT:  Quite a difference in the meaning of those

                        two phrases.

2Tim. 4:1     KJ:       “I charge [thee] therefore before God, AND

                        THE LORD Jesus Christ, …”

              NASV:     “I solemnly charge you in the presence of God

                        and of Christ Jesus, …”

Titus 1:4     KJ:       “… from God the Father and THE LORD Jesus

                        Christ our Saviour.”

              NASV:     “… from God the Father and Christ Jesus our

                        Savior.”

Titus 3:10    KJ:       “A man that is an HERETICK after the first

                        and second admonition reject;”

              NASV:     “Reject a factious man after a first and

                        second warning,”

              COMMENT:  What?  Reject a ‘factious man’? The KJ is

                        correct: The one that holds to false doctrine

                        (the HERETICK) is the one to be rejected.

Philemon 6    KJ:       “… every good thing which is in you IN

                        CHRIST JESUS.”

              NASV:     “… every good thing which is in you for

                        Christ’s sake.”

              COMMENT:  The KJ gives glory to CHRIST JESUS; the NASV

                        emphasizes MAN.

Heb. 1:3      KJ:       (Jesus) “Who BEING THE BRIGHTNESS OF [his]

                        glory, and the express image of his person.

                        … when he had BY HIMSELF PURGED OUR SINS,

                        sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on

                        high;”

              NASV:     “And He is the radiance of His glory and the

                        exact representation of His nature, … When

                        He had made purification of sins, He sat down

                        at the right hand of the Majesty on high;”

              COMMENT:  BEING THE BRIGHTNESS OF and radiating it are

                        very different! Also, Jesus Christ did it

                        ALONE and he did it FOR US!

Heb. 2:16     KJ:       “For verily he took not on [him the nature

                        of] angels; but he took on [him] the seed of

                        Abraham.”

              NASV:     “For assuredly He does not give help to

                        angels, but He gives help to the seed of

                        Abraham.”

              COMMENT:  The NASV is not even close.

Heb. 3:1      KJ:       “Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of THE

                        heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and

                        High Priest of our PROFESSION, CHRIST Jesus;”

              NASV:     “Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of a

                        heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the Apostle

                        and High Priest of our confession.”

              COMMENT:  CHRIST is left out and “THE” heavenly calling

                        is changed to ‘a’ heavenly calling. Also,

                        don’t the translators know the difference

                        between a “PROFESSION” and a ‘confession’?

Heb. 3:16     KJ:       “FOR SOME, when they had heard, did provoke:

                        howbeit NOT ALL that came out of Egypt by

                        Moses.”

              NASV:     “For who provoked Him when they had heard?

                        Indeed, did not all those who came out of

                        Egypt led by Moses?”

              COMMENT:  The NASV is exactly BACKWARDS.

Heb. 4:8      KJ:       “For if JESUS had given them REST, then would

                        he not afterward have spoken of another day.”

              NASV:     “For if Joshua had given them rest, He would

                        not have spoken of another day after that.”

              COMMENT:  Our “REST” is in the LORD JESUS not in

                        Joshua!  

Heb. 7:21     KJ:       “… Thou [art] a priest for ever AFTER THE

                        ORDER OF MELCHISEDEC:)”

              NASV:     “… Thou art a priest forever’);”

              COMMENT:  What KIND of priest? We don’t know from the

                        NASV because “After the order of Melchisedec”

                        is omitted.

Heb. 10:30    KJ:       “For we know him that hath said, Vengeance

                        [belongeth] unto me, I will recompense, SAITH

                        THE LORD. …”

              NASV:     “For we know Him who said, ‘Vengeance is

                        Mine, I will repay.’…”

              COMMENT:  ‘Knowing him who said …’ is vague and could

                        be anybody. This verse is supposed to be

                        about GOD, as stated in the King James Bible.

Heb. 11:6     KJ:       “… he is a rewarder of them that DILIGENTLY

                        seek him.”

              NASV:     “… He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.”

              COMMENT:  We must DILIGENTLY seek him.

Heb. 12:2     KJ:       “Looking unto Jesus the author and FINISHER

                        of [OUR] faith; …”

              NASV:     “fixing our eyes on Jesus the author and

                        perfecter of faith, …”

James 5:16    KJ:       “Confess [your] FAULTS one to another, …”

              NASV:     “Therefore, confess your sins to one another,

                        …”

              COMMENT:  The Bible says that ONLY GOD can forgive

                        sins. Therefore, we are supposed to confess

                        our SINS to him. We should, however, confess

                        our FAULTS to one another. Note: This

                        doctrinal error in the NASV is ALSO in

                        Catholic doctrine and practices.

1Peter 1:22   KJ:       “Seeing ye have purified your souls in

                        obeying the truth THROUGH THE SPIRIT …”

              NASV:     “Since you have in obedience to the truth

                        purified your souls …”

              COMMENT:  What happened to God’s Holy Spirit?  The

                        King James gives God’s Holy Spirit the glory.

                        The NASV credits man.

1Peter 2:2    KJ:       “Desire the sincere milk of the word, that

                        ye may GROW THEREBY:”

              NASV:     “… long for the pure milk of the word, THAT

                        BY IT YOU MAY GROW IN RESPECT TO SALVATION,”

1Peter 3:15   KJ:       “But sanctify THE LORD GOD in your hearts:

                        …”

              NASV:     “but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts,

                        …”

              COMMENT:  Is this ANOTHER attempt to do away with the

                        DEITY of our Lord?

1Peter 4:1    KJ:       “Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered FOR

                        US in the flesh, …”

              NASV:     “… since Christ has suffered in the flesh,

                        …”

              COMMENT:  Christ suffered FOR US. Kind of important

                        don’t you think?

1Peter 4:14   KJ:       “If ye be reproached for the name of Christ,

                        happy [are ye]; for the spirit of glory and

                        of God resteth upon you: ON THEIR PART HE IS

                        EVIL SPOKEN OF, BUT ON YOUR PART HE IS

                        GLORIFIED.”

              NASV:     “If you are reviled for the name of Christ,

                        you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory

                        and of God rests upon you.”

              COMMENT:  The NASV leaves out the glory God deserves.

2Peter 2:1    KJ:       “… there shall be false teachers among you,

                        who privily shall bring in DAMNABLE HERESIES,

                        …”

              NASV:     “… there will also be false teachers among

                        you, who will secretly introduce destructive

                        heresies, …”

              COMMENT:  The problem is that the heresies are

                        DAMNABLE.

1John 1:7     KJ:       “… and the blood of Jesus CHRIST his Son

                        cleanseth us from all sin.”

              NASV:     “… and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses

                        us from all sin.”

1John 2:20    KJ:       “But ye have AN UNCTION from the Holy One,

                        and ye know all things.”

              NASV:     “But you have an anointing from the Holy

                        One, and you all know.”

              COMMENT:  Are “UNCTION” and ‘anointing’ the same?

1John 3:16    KJ:       “Hereby perceive we the LOVE [OF GOD], …”

              NASV:     “We know love by this, …”

              COMMENT:  God is left out! What happened to GIVING GOD

                        THE GLORY for his love?

1John 4:3     KJ:       “And every spirit that confesseth not that

                        Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of

                        God.”

              NASV:     “and every spirit that does not confess Jesus

                        is not from God; …”

              COMMENT:  Not true NASV! Remember, EVIL SPIRITS DID

                        CONFESS/ACKNOWLEDGE JESUS. In Luke 4:34 (and

                        in Mark 1:24) a man having a “spirit of an

                        unclean devil” said to Jesus: “… Let [us]

                        alone; what have we to do with thee, [THOU]

                        JESUS OF NAZARETH? art thou come to destroy

                        us? I KNOW THEE who thou art; THE HOLY ONE

                        OF GOD.”

                        ‘New versions’ like the NASV corrupt the

                        test for the anti-christ/test for evil

                        spirits.

1John 4:19    KJ:       “We love HIM, because he first loved us.”

              NASV:     “We love, because He first loved us.”

              COMMENT:  The NASV missed the topic, totally. “We love

                        HIM, because he first loved us.”

1John 5:6-7   KJ:       “This is HE that came by water and blood,

                        [even] Jesus Christ; not by water only, but

                        by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that

                        beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.

                        FOR THERE ARE THREE THAT BEAR RECORD IN

                        HEAVEN, THE FATHER, THE WORD, AND THE HOLY

                        GHOST: AND THESE THREE ARE ONE.”

              NASV:     “This is the one who came by water and blood,

                        Jesus Christ; not with water only, but with

                        the water and with the blood. And it is the

                        Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit

                        is the truth.

              COMMENT:  The text in capital letters is missing in

                        the NASV.

1John 5:8     KJ:       “And there are three that bear witness IN

                        EARTH, the spirit, and the water, and the

                        blood: and these three agree IN ONE.”

              NASV:     “For there are three that bear witness, the

                        Spirit and the water and the blood; and the

                        three are in agreement.”

1John 5:13    KJ:       “… that ye may know that ye have eternal

                        life, AND THAT YE MAY BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF

                        THE SON OF GOD.”

              NASV:     “… in order that you may know that you have

                        eternal life.”

              COMMENT:  No reason is given for this phrase being

                        omitted.

2John 1:3     KJ:       “Grace be with you, mercy, [and] peace, from

                        God the Father, AND FROM THE LORD JESUS

                        CHRIST, the Son of the Father, in truth and

                        love.”

              NASV:     “Grace, mercy and peace will be with us, from

                        God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Son

                        of the Father, in truth and love.”

Rev. 1:9      KJ:       “… and FOR the testimony of Jesus CHRIST.”

              NASV:     “… and the testimony of Jesus.”

Rev. 1:11     KJ:       “Saying, I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE FIRST AND

                        THE LAST: and, What thou seest, write in a

                        book, …”

              NASV:     “saying, ‘Write in a book what you see, …'”

              COMMENT:  Jesus as the ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE FIRST AND

                        THE LAST: is omitted.

Rev. 5:14     KJ:       “… And the four [and] twenty elders fell

                        down and worshipped HIM THAT LIVETH FOR EVER

                        AND EVER.

              NASV:     “… And the elders fell down and

                        worshipped.”

              COMMENT:  Worshipped WHO? John? Sam? Sally? The devil?

                        Who? The NASV doesn’t say. But, in the King

                        James it is CLEAR: We worship him that

                        “LIVETH FOR EVER”!

Rev. 6:17     KJ:       “For the great day of HIS wrath is come; and

                        who shall be able to stand?”

              NASV:     “for the great day of their wrath has come;

                        and who is able to stand?”

              COMMENT:  There is quite a difference between THEIR

                        wrath and HIS wrath!

Rev. 8:13     KJ:       “… and heard AN ANGEL flying …”

              NASV:     “… and I heard an eagle flying …”

              COMMENT:  How can the translators mis-translate ANGEL

                        as eagle?

Rev. 13:16    KJ:       “And he causeth all, … to receive a mark

                        IN their right hand, or IN their foreheads:”

              NASV:     “And he causes all, … to be given a mark

                        ON their right hand or ON their forehead,”

              COMMENT:  The “mark of the beast” will be IN the right

                        hand or IN the forehead (as in the

                        possibility of a microchip, or something IN

                        the skin that CANNOT be washed off, etc.).

                        Note: Something ON the right hand or ON the

                        forehead could be more easily REMOVED.

Rev. 15:3     KJ:       “… thou King OF SAINTS.”

              NASV:     “… Thou King of the nations.”

              COMMENT:  There is a difference. Think about it.

Rev. 16:7     KJ:       “And I heard ANOTHER OUT OF THE ALTAR SAY,

                        …”

              NASV:     “And I heard the altar saying, …”

              COMMENT:  Whoever heard of an altar TALKING?

Rev. 19:8     KJ:       “And to her was granted that she should be

                        arrayed in fine linen, clean and WHITE: for

                        the fine linen is the RIGHTEOUSNESS of

                        saints.”

              NASV:     “And it was given to her to clothe herself 

                        in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine

                        linen is the righteous acts of the saints.”

              COMMENT:  The linen of the saints is WHITE because

                        WHITE symbolizes PURITY. ‘Bright’ could be

                        ANY COLOR. Also, fine linen is the

                        RIGHTEOUSNESS of saints (which GOD GAVE TO

                        US and he gets the GLORY for it). The fine

                        linen IS NOT the righteous ACTS of the saints

                        (which would give man the glory).

Rev. 20:9     KJ:       “… and fire came down FROM GOD out of

                        heaven, …”

              NASV:     “… and fire came down from heaven …”

              COMMENT:  It was GOD that judged (important point).

Rev. 21:24    KJ:       “And the nations of them WHICH ARE SAVED

                        shall walk in the light of it: …”

              NASV:     “And the nations shall walk by its light,

                        …”

              COMMENT:  A BIG difference.

Rev 22:14     KJ:       “Blessed [are] they that DO HIS

                        COMMANDMENTS, …”

              NASV:     “Blessed are those who wash their robes,

                        …”

              COMMENT:  What? ‘Wash their robes’? Are those two

                        verses the same? Brothers and sisters:

                        If you want TO BE BLESSED, then DO HIS

                        (Jesus’) COMMANDMENTS!

                        Amen?

                        AMEN!
