The English Standard Version, Comments from

When you read the source references for "The English Standard Version" this is what you find:

The Old Testament came from the "Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia", which came from Rudolf Kittel's 1937 "Biblia Hebraica ". It inturn came from the "Ben Asher Masoretic Text". The footnotes in Kittel's Biblia Hebraica suggest from 20,000 to 30,000 changes throughout the whole Old Testament.

The Old Testament in the King James Bible came from the traditional "Ben Chayyim Masoretic Text " and the translators made no changes.

This is the hardest thing for people to understand..... The Old Testament of "The English Standard Version", just like other modern versions was translated from the same corrupt text as other modern versions.

What about the "New Testament"?

The "English Standard Version" tells us their New Testament came from:
"The Greek New Testament (1993 - 4th ed. UBS) and Novum Testamentum Graece (Nestle/Aland - 27th ed.)".

Both of these text originate from the corrupted Westcott-Hort Greek text of 1881.

The New Testament of the "King James Bible" comes from a completely different text, the "Received Text"

Until you are able to understand these basics, you will always be fooled.

    1. All modern Bible translations originate from the same corrupted text.
    2. The "The King James Bible" was translated from a different set of Greek text than all modern versions.
    3. When you start with corrupted text, you end up with corrupted text!
