Within a few decades, the King James Bible became the preferred translation of the Bible for the English-speaking people of the world, being finally accepted by them for what it truly is, an extraordinary translation of the Bible, especially when one considers the disadvantages of the King James translators to modern-day translators. Although it may have much to do with the fact that I cut my spiritual eyeteeth on the King James Version, committing its verses to memory as a young Christian, it is still my favorite translation of the Bible.
