Ro answer a queastion raised as to why I say the new I nternational VCerson of the Bible is flawed, I presernt a small sample if errors.
By no means an exhaustive list, these are but a few errors one finds in the NIV version of the Holy Bible. There are hundreds of such errors int he text, here are but a few.
This, I trust, shows why I do not trust it.Below is the KJV and NIV compoared in select verses form the new testement alone.
"One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all"
"one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all"
Again another, here Joesoph is Jesus's father.
"And Joseph and his mother marveled…"
"The child's father and mother marveled…"
"…Jesus answereth again, … Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!"
"…Jesus said again, 'Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!'"
"And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.
54 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?
55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.
56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
54 When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, "Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them?" [comparison with Elias omitted]
55 But Jesus turned and rebuked them, [Jesus' words of rebuke omitted]
56 [Jesus' reason for coming to earth omitted] and they went to another village.
The above and more are reasons why I do not trust the NIV.
