New King James Version (NKJV)
SATANIC SYMBOL ON THE NKJV COVERS
An occult symbol, which represents interwoven 6s (666), also connected with the "trinity" symbol in Catholic churches, is used on the front cover of some NKJV books. This symbol has historic connections to New Age, Witchcraft and Satanism.
THEE, THOU AND YE
The preface to the NKJV states that "thee, thou and ye" is replaced with "you" to make for easier reading because it is no longer a part of our language. However, the "thee, thou and ye" was not a part of the language during that time either. It was used in the earliest part of the 13th century and the KJV came out in the 17th century. So why is it there? The Greek and Hebrew language contains a different word for the second person singular vs plural pronouns. Today we use the one word "you" for both singular and plural, but because the translators of the 1611 King James Bible desired an accurate, word-for-word translation of the Hebrew and Greek text, they could not use the one word "you" throughout. If it begins with "t" (thou, thy, thine) it's
, but if it begins with "y" (ye) it's
THE KJV WAS NOT USED FOR TRANSLATING
In the Preface and Forward to the NKJV, they state that they also used and consulted other texts, along with the KJV, for translation. So it's not just an "update" or revision of the KJV as many believe.
