Default What Bible do you read?

I see there are many versions and translations.
Personally in my home I have the Latin Vulgate translated to Spanish.
Obviously from the Roman Catholic Rite.
Does any one have a different one.
This is not to stir up controversy, only to learn more.

If you check out www.blueletterbible.org you will find they often include many alternative possible translations for various terminology including the Vulgate, Syriac, Coptic, Greek and others beside the King James version. They also appear to have various translations you can choose from as the basic text.

The bible was never meant to be read but experienced. When you understand that the bible is present tense the veil will be lifted. The bible is like a fig tree. The fruit is concealed underneath her leaves.Just as a woman hides that which is sacred. By the way the king james is the esoteric version and all others were created to cause confusion.

To be or not to be is the question.

Hidden in these words is Enlightenment.

Anyway i'm just rambling

Talking Re: What Bible do you read?

At 12 yrs. old Jesus dissapear to preach to the pharises. Anyone as a parent
would be worry from day one. What do you think Jesus did to prepare himself ? Question and follow the trail, it will lead you to intresting places.
What are you scare of ? Youself ? Scare that your set of beliefs might be challenge by the truth. JME good thread. The elephant has many sides the bible is no different, Noval is correct in describing the bible as a code book.
The only thing for me is that many chapters are missing, think about who would benefit from keeping the truth from the reach of the general public. Is this too far fetch? Not a critique just an observation

There was a comparison of the KJV Bible to the Vulgate, etc....

It would be more accurate to note that the KJV was translated from a manuscript called the Textus Receptus (received text), or often called the Majority Text.

Here is an interesting repository on ancient manuscripts.

There are many bible versions published today, this in itself can be quite confusing to some one who is interested in the text and or would like to be familiar with it. Of the many versions there are those who will defend each and every one of them for a variety of reasons. The most precise and accurate bible ever produced in english is the KJV. The KJV is a version produced from something called the Textus Receptus also known as the Majority Text. The original translators compared about five thousand of the oldest MSS known and published the results in 1611. Today even now this text sets the standard for all the rest. Almost all, if not all new versions are from the Minority text also known as the Alexandrian text which I would not personally use.
I have many bibles of which I have studied and my favorites are the KJV original with Apocrypha, the Pe****ta and the Septuagint all of which have been translated into english.
Oxford KJV with Apocrypha
The Brenton Septuagint with Apocrypha
The Aramaic Pe****ta by Magiera
If you put the Septuagint (old testament) together with the Pe****ta (new testament)you will have a very good bible
Today there is a version called " The Cambridge Paragraph Bible with Apocrypha" This Bible would be very good for those who do not like the page layout of the usual two column page but would prefer a single full page layout. I highly recomend this version.
There are many and bitter arguements against the Apocrypha Proper that stem from peticular denominational doctrine rather than the facts.
These books were always in the Bible up until about 1895 when the bible societies banned them. The Septuagint Bible dates back to about 285 B.C. and did include these books intermingled with all the rest. These books cover the socalled silent period of four hundred years between the new and old testaments that your pastor likely told you about. That is the reason they are between the old and new testaments in the original Bibles. One asks, why is not the U.S. mentioned in scripture? Well, it is but you would have to read 1 and 2 Esdras along with 1 and 2 Maccabees to find it.
Do your own research and draw your own conclusions, there has been a whole lot of skullduggery thru the centuries.

I'm glad someone brought this up. Without arguing the divine inspiration or lack thereof, the Bible is a profound book that repays scrutiny. The trouble is, so few have actually read it.

For ordinary reading, I like the New International Version. I also find the Pe****ta readable and interesting. For study, I have to have all of them. I also find the 3-volume commentary by Jamison, Fausset & Brown, and the 2-volume commentary by the atheist Isaac Asimov very useful.

The Bible, as a Book.

As we have had many requests concerning which bible to read, while not having any
religious ties
From Norval;
The ones I found good were the Catholic St. Josephs Student edition, Oxford Cambridge
New English Bible with Apocrypha, and the big Jehovah's Witness study bible. In all I
have about two dozen translations in english from various time periods. There are other
books that should be in the bibles of modern times, I can only say you decide on what
other ones, after you have read the New Testament (Greek writings) first, and then work
your way backwards starting with Malachi of the Old Testament (Hebrew writings). I too
have a duplicate of the origional KJV of 1611 and it is one of the few that cross
references 2nd Esdras and Revelations, Daniel, and so on.

The computer on line bibles are excellent for word study and topical studies research.
Also, as Gale mentions, we have the 1995 version of the American Bible Society's
CDROM data base, (now unavailable), which includes the Apocrypha and
Deuterocanonicles along with Strongs numbering, and many other research works.

I posted this in another thread:

I have over the years bought all different kinds of translations of the Bible so I have a hard copy but what I prefer is a computer database called the American Bible Society Bible Database and a free online download of another searchable program called e-sword from Rick Meyers. Unfortunately a few of the translations supplied to Rick Meyers require him to charge for those specific translations and they donít have 2 Esdras.
The very first Bible I read was the NRSV, which contains the Apocrypha, I wanted to read what they all had to say.
I hope that is helpful.

PS.
There is also available to purchase a replica of the 1611 King James, I have a copy but it is hard to read because of the ancient language.

I have that 1611 also, for a modern english language version the Oxford World Classics has an "Authorized King James Version With Apocrypha" which is the exact version of the original in modern english.

Cambridge also has a very good KJV with Apocrypha as well.
