“MORE HARD WORDS OF THE NJKV”

Now here’s an interesting fact … that second grade children can understand and define all the following King James Bible words, but none of their corresponding NKJV substitutes!

Dear Reader, do you think that the words of the New King James Version are more difficult and not clearer as they claim?

 

 

HARD WORD

New King James Version

 

EASY WORD

The King James Bible  

Amos 5:21

savor

smell

 

2 Corinthians 5:2

habitation

house

 

Ecclesiastes 2:3

gratify

give

 

Isaiah 28:1, 4

verdant

fat

 

Isaiah 13:12

mortal

man

 

Psalm 43:1

Acts 17:22

 

the Areopagus

Mars hill

Ezra 31:4

 

rivulets

little rivers

Acts 2:27, 31

 

hades

Dear Reader, do users of the New King James Version designate, nominate, espouse, determine, depute … indeed … moreover eclectically and synonymously select, the hard word instead of the easy word?
