I have and use the King James Bible of 1611. I don't use any of the other English versions of the Bible. The King James Bible of 1611, if you ask me, is the best English translation of the original Bible which was written in Greek and Hebrew. I recommend you use it too.
Really? the King James of 1611? Or do you really
use the King James of 1769? John 3 1611
14 And as Moses lifted vp the serpent in the wildernesse: euen so must the Sonne of man be lifted vp:
15 That whosoeuer beleeueth in him, should not perish, but haue eternall life.
16 For God so loued þe world, that he gaue his only begotten Sonne: that whosoeuer beleeueth in him, should not perish, but haue euerlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Sonne into the world to condemne the world: but that the world through him might be saued.
18 He that beleeueth on him, is not condemned: but hee that beleeueth not, is condemned already, because hee hath not beleeued in the Name of the onely begotten Sonne of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loued darknesse rather then light, because their deedes were euill.
20 For euery one that doeth euill, hateth the light, neither commeth to the light, lest his deeds should be reproued.
John 3 1769
13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven.
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
