To start I would like to say that i used a multitude of translations. I think its important for a number of reasons.
Today while looking at the Gospels i came across something interesting. I mainly have been reading the ESV and HSCB for the last couple of years. Today i was comparing to the KJV with strongs numbers when i compared the following verse:

I like the ESV for its readability but i find this disheartening. Now for the question....
Is there a site or something out there that would compare KJV to ESV passages? There is one off the top of my head that i disregard due to its blatant KJVonlyism. But i can't help but wonder how many other verses were compromised in such a fashion.
I am dissatisfied and now feel i need to compare every verse i read all the time and keep a log of these things.
