Obsolete Words IN THE KJV
Part 1

By Robert A. Joyner


From the article:

There are many words in the KJV today that do not convey the meaning to the modern reader that the original writers intended to express. When the KJV came out in 1611, it was sixteenth century English at its best. Through the years many words and expressions have become ambiguous or misleading. There are hundreds of them. In this chapter I will point out samples of them. I believe the reader will find archaic and obsolete words are a much bigger problem than you would think.

Obsolete Words IN THE KJV
Part 2

By Robert A. Joyner


From the article:

Imagine what it would be like to talk to someone in the 1600s. They had never heard of electricity. It would be hard to make them understand when you try to talk to them about television, computers, microwave ovens, laser beams, jet planes and rockets to Mars. This is the kind of problem we have trying to read old outdated English today.

This chapter is a continuation of the previous chapter. We are discussing archaic words in the KJV.
