The Holy Bible King James Modernized Version With the Correct Original Names of God in the Old Testament & Gospels
The Holy Bible
King James Modernized Version
Large Print Edition.
The Modernized Version utilizes the original text found in The King James (Authorized) Version.
The first and most important change will be noticed in the return of the original names of God. Which is by far; “Supreme God” and “JEHOVAH”, as well as “Almighty God” and “Eternal God”. And the One Name which is the Most Holy: JAH. These are the names by which He was known in the original sacred text.
But His real names had failed to be included in the King James Version. Thereby making the word “God” a mere generic term. Which not only lacks the due respect that should be rendered to the Divine Creator. But, also fails to make apparent the specific attributes by which He had made Himself to be known. Thus robbing the reader of the full understanding that was originally intended to be offered in the Word of God. [And put yourself in His place, wouldn't you be angry if you were not called by your given name?]
Further modernization of the text was accomplished by replacing words such as; “ye's”, “thine's”, “whence's”, etc., with the modern day English equivalents, such as; “you”, “yours”, “where”, etc. As well as by removing the old English suffixes such as; “est”, “eth”, “ith”, etc. A few archaic words were also changed to modern meaning. For example; words, such as: “knew”, were expounded upon in the following manner: [had] sexual relations [with]. In addition: “the LORD of hosts” was correctly translated back to; "JEHOVAH of armies". All of this was done while keeping the following in mind: "For I testify to every man that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add to these things, God shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this book."--Revelation 22:18, 19
Both Cruden's Concordance 1835 Edition and Strong's Hebrew And Greek Dictionaries were employed in order to ensure that the original meaning, or at the very least the general meaning, of the sacred text was retained. As well as so that Cruden's or Strong's Concordance, or a Bible Dictionary, can easily be used for further clarification of the scriptures.
Recognition must also be given to Rick Meyers of e-Sword (Bible software - http://www.e-sword.net/). Without which, it would have taken a substantially longer period of time to complete this project.
This work was undertaken in the hope of making the scriptures easier to understand for the modern day reader. Every effort was made, with due diligence, to maintain the correct structure and flow of the original sacred text.
Scriptures in the Old Testament which in any way refer to the coming of Jesus the Christ/Messiah are highlighted in purple. As well as those of His lineage, (to around the time of the carrying away into Babylon).
The Scriptures in the New Testament held to be spoken by The Lord Jesus Christ are highlighted in red.
