KJV vs NIV



WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT TAKING AWAY AND ADDING FROM THE WORD OF GOD?

Deuteronomy 4:2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.

Deuteronomy 12:32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

Proverbs 30: 5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. 6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.



NOTE: These are the verses that have been either removed to the footnotes section or are completely removed all together. There are many other discrepancies in the NIV including the removal of individual words such as Calvary, Lucifer, New Testament, and many others. The NIV is also gender neutral which is not what the original manuscripts were like. Gender neutral is something brought about by modern day Politically Correct persons. Now on to the discrepancies.


Let's begin with the verses that have been moved from the original text and put into the footnotes of the NIV. By putting a verse into the footnotes instead of where it should be, it leads credibility to the reader that the verse is not part of the original Bible. Now for the verses that have been completely removed from the Original.  




Matthew 17:21 (KJV) Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.  
Matthew 17:21 (NIV) (No verse 21) 20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” [21] [a]


NIV leaves vs 21 out and uses it as a footnote only for (Some manuscripts you. But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting) 

This is such a vital verse, why leave it out? In order to have this kind of faith Jesus says prayer and fasting can only bring it. The NIV leaves it in a footnote. When you try to memorize a verse, do you remember to include the footnotes. When you want to increase your faith do you pray and fast? Is it possible that we can perform miracles like Jesus did with the boy with a demonic spirit?  


Mathew 18:11 (KJV) For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.  

Matthew 18:11 (NIV) The Parable of the Lost Sheep  

Matthew 18 (NIV)
10"See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.[a] 
11 ?
12"What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? 
13And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. 
14In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.  

NIV footnotes only for vs11 Some manuscripts heaven. 11 The Son of Man came to save what was lost.  


Matthew 23 (KJV)  

14 (Seven Woes) Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
Matthew 23 (NIV)
[14] [b] ?



Do you see anything wrong with the translation?

(KJV) Ephesians 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;


(NIV) Ephesians 5:19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord,

(KJV) Colossians 4:5 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

(NIV) Colossians 4:5 Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 
6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.



(NIV) Matthew 23
8 “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers.
9 And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. 
10 Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah.

(KJV) Matthew 23
8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. 9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. 10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
