Battle Over the Bibles

Since time memorial there has been numerous attempts to change the Word of God, sometimes covertly, sometimes overtly.

In Genesis, by believing the serpent, there was a corresponding disbelief and rejection as true what God had told them. This same process is still extant today. What God declares to be true, man ends up altering through addition, deletion or outright rejection and substitution.

Battle Over the Bibles by Walter Veith

Below are scattered excerpts from Walter Veith’s lectures

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. — this is very true, seeing first their own nakedness before anything else

6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Deuteronomy 12:32 NKJV Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it.

Proverbs 30:6 Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.

Revelation 22:18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

A. The Samaritan Pentateuch is Corrupt

The Samaritan Pentateuch varies in the Ten Commandments passages, in that Samaritans count as nine commandments what others count as ten. The Samaritan tenth commandment includes the sanctity of Mount Gerizim for worship. Additions after Exodus 20:1–17 (The Ten Commandments) 

And when it so happens that LORD God brings you to the land of Caanan, which you are coming to posses, you shall set-up there for you great stones and plaster them with plaster and you write on the stones all words of this law. And it becomes for you that across the Jordan you shall raise these stones, which I command you today, in mountain Grizim. And you build there the altar to the LORD God of you. Altar of stones. Not you shall wave on them iron. With whole stones you shall build the altar to LORD God of you. And you bring on it ascend offerings to LORD God of you, and you sacrifice peace offerings, and you eat there and you rejoice before the face of the LORD God of you. The mountain this is across the Jordan behind the way of the rising of the sun, in the land of Caanan who is dwelling in the desert before the Galgal, beside Alvin-Mara, before Sechem. — 169 additional words.

Also in Deuteronomy 5:21

And when it so happens that Yahuah God brings you to the land of Caanan, which you are coming to posses, you shall set-up there for you great stones and plaster them with plaster and you write on the stones all words of this law. And it becomes for you that across the Jordan you shall raise these stones, which I command you today, in mountain Grizim. And you build there the altar to the Yahuah God of you. Altar of stones. Not you shall wave on them iron. With whole stones you shall build the altar to Yahuah God of you. And you bring on it ascend offerings to Yahuah God of you, and you sacrifice peace offerings, and you eat there and you rejoice before the face of the Yahuah God of you. The mountain this is across the Jordan behind the way of the rising of the sun, in the land of Caanan who is dwelling in the desert before the Galgal, beside Alvin-Mara, before Sechem.

Q If Moses had been so sure he shouldn’t be so vague about where the LORD shall choose in Deut 16:15,16 (Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty). Also, which mountain is Mt Grizim exactly, since they were so far off?

Q2 Is it a coincidence, the mentioning of the rising of the SUN? Why not just west of the Jordan, before Sechem? Today, they, together with most of the CoGs, keep their Feast of Weeks on Sundays. Always a Sunday!

Exodus 20:21And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God [was].And the Yahuah said to Moses to say: I heard what people have said. All that they have spoken to you, they have spoken wisely. All that they have spoken let them put in their hearts so that they can keep my commandments in all their days, so that it would be good to them and to sons of them forever. Prophet I shall raise up to them from the midsts of their brothers, and I will place words of me into his mouth to speak to them all that I’m commanding them. And it becomes that the man who will not listen to his words that are spoken in my name, I shall require from him. But the prophet who will speak insolently in my name that which I have not instructed him to speak, or if he speaks in the name of other Gods, such prophet shall die. And if you will ask yourself in your heart how you shall know which word God has spoken and which he has not, see if the word spoken comes to pass. And if it shall not come to pass then this is not the word of the Yahuah, in insolence spoken the prophet. Not you shall listen to him. Go now back to your tent and I will speak to you regarding all commandments and ordinances and verdicts that you shall teach them, and what to do in the land that I give them for possession. (It incorporates Exodus 18:18 and others: I will raise up to them a prophet of their brethren, like thee; and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them as I shall command him. Samaritans believes this Prophet was to be from the line of the tribe of Levi, like Moses, not from the line of Judah, which the Jews believes.)

B. New Testament

ADDITIONS: Even in the King James Version

The Great Commission of baptizing in Jesus’ name

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: — not in the original Hebrew

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. — only need to baptize in the name of Jesus Christ

Acts 8:16 For as yet He had fallen upon none of them. They had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

Acts 11:16 Then I remembered the word of the Lord, how He said, ‘John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ — but in Jesus’ name

Acts 19:5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. — only need to baptize in the name of Jesus Christ

John 4:1(NKJV) Therefore, when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John 2 (though Jesus Himself did not baptize, but His disciples), 3 He left Judea and departed again to Galilee. — this illustrates what it means when the disciples baptized in Jesus’ name. Baptism is a symbol of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection. This should be the model for today.

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. — so there is no need for additional authority, the Father nor the holy spirit.

John 10:38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him. — Jesus always emphasizes the Father and Son relationship.

1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. — not in the original Greek

CHANGING THE WORD

Genesis 3:15 KJV And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Douay-Rheims (DRA), a Jesuit Bible: I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she [mother Mary? instead of her seed] shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.

Jesus says he is the Gate to Life, but the Catholics say the Blessed Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven, is the gate to life, so they pray to Mary; “Hail Mary, full of Grace! . . .”

Hosea 11:12 KJV Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints.

NIV Ephraim has surrounded me with lies, Israel with deceit. And Judah is unruly against God, even against the faithful Holy One. — totally anti-Jewish and opposite in meaning

AMP Ephraim surrounds Me with lies And the house of Israel with deceit; Judah is also unruly against God, Even against the faithful Holy One. — same here

CEV Israel is deceitful to me, their loyal and holy God; they surround me with lies, and Judah worships other gods. — same here

Matt 5:44 KJV But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

ESV But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

Matt 18:11 KJV For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. — many versions whole verse taken out

Matt 20:16 KJV So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

ESV So the last will be first, and the first last.

Matt 20:22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.

23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.

NIV 22 “You don’t know what you are asking,” Jesus said to them. “Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?”

“We can,” they answered.

23 Jesus said to them, “You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father.” — NIV baptism deleted

Matt 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

ESV Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour. — deleting until it doesn’t make sense

Matt 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

ESV “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. — I and my Father are One, hence Jesus should know His own coming, but in ESV, He doesn’t. It also implies that the Son and Father doesn’t work together.

If the Son doesn’t know that it contradicts John 1:1-3 where they plan everything together:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made. John 1:1-3

Mark 2:17 KJV When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

ESV And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” — implies as if there is no need for repentance

Mark 6:11 KJV  And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

ESV And if any place will not receive you and they will not listen to you, when you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet as a testimony against them. — the world doesn’t like to hear of the day of judgement, like the Sadducees

Mark 10:21  Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

ESV And Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “You lack one thing: go, sell all that you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” — no need to take up the cross 

Mark 10:24  And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!

ESV And the disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said to them again, “Children, how difficult it is to enter the kingdom of God!

NIV The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! — Abraham, Job and many others were rich, yet they are destined for the Kingdom of God.

Mark 7:19 Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?

NIV For it doesn’t go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.)

NLV It does not go into his heart, but into his stomach and then on out of his body.” In this way, He was saying that all food is clean.

Mark 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

ESV “But when you see the abomination of desolation standing where he ought not to be (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. — no reference to Daniel’s prophecy

Luke 2:14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

ESV “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

ESV And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone.’” — there is no need to live by every word of God. Modern Christians want just to feel what is right or wrong, rather than by every word of God

Luke 9:55-56 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. 56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

ESV 55 But he turned and rebuked them. 56 And they went on to another village. — the world doesn’t like correction, doesn’t like to be rebuked

1 Cor 10:28 But if any man say unto you, this is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof:

ESV But if someone says to you, “This has been offered in sacrifice,” then do not eat it, for the sake of the one who informed you, and for the sake of conscience — no reference that the earth is of the Lord’s 

Revelation 14:5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

ESV and in their mouth no lie was found, for they are blameless. — no accountability before the throne of God

Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

ESV Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates. — no reference to obeying His commandments

Luke 4:8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

ESV And Jesus answered him, “It is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.’” — no reference that Satan is always around us

Acts 13:42 And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.

ESV As they went out, the people begged that these things might be told them the next Sabbath. — eliminate the Jew’s sabbath by deleting the Jew’s

1 Corinthians 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

ESV Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. — “for us” is eliminated

Hebrews 7:21 (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord swear and will not repent, Thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek:)

ESV but this one was made a priest with an oath by the one who said to him: “The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind, ‘You are a priest forever.’” — that Jesus has a higher level of priesthood after the order of Melchizedek” is eliminated

John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

ESV You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, — wishy washy translation

Matthew 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

ESV and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. — no need to be converted

Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

ESV and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things,

Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

ESV in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. “through his blood” eliminated

Revelation 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

AMP Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes (nations) of the earth will mourn over Him [realizing their sin and guilt, and anticipating the coming wrath]. So it is to be. Amen.

ASV Behold, he cometh with the clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they that pierced him; and all the tribes of the earth shall mourn over him. Even so, Amen. — the change from judgement to that of being sorrowful for Christ

Mark 7:19 Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?

ESV since it enters not his heart but his stomach, and is expelled?” (Thus he declared all foods clean.)

ERV Food does not go into a person’s mind. It goes into the stomach. Then it goes out of the body.” (When Jesus said this, he meant there is no food that is wrong for people to eat.)

NIV For it doesn’t go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.)

1 Corinthians 7:5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

ESV Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. — “fasting” taken out

John 9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

ESV We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work.— diminished the fact that Jesus has intimate relationship with the Father, also the work of salvation can only be done by Christ

1 Corinthians 11:29  For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.

ESV For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

ESV And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, — the article “the” is eliminated, so the judgement isn’t a specific one, so purgatory could be established

Luke 1:72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;

NIV to show mercy to our ancestors and to remember his holy covenant, — a total change of meaning, so now you can pray to our ancestors who are already dead. Again establishing the concept of purgatory

1 Peter 4:6 For this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

RSV For this is why the gospel was preached even to the dead, that though judged in the flesh like men, they might live in the spirit like God.

NIV For this is the reason the gospel was preached even to those who are now dead, so that they might be judged according to human standards in regard to the body, but live according to God in regard to the spirit. 

Acts 24:15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

ESV having a hope in God, which these men themselves accept, that there will be a resurrection of both the just and the unjust. — ‘of the dead‘ deleted

Purgatory Incorporated

Job 26:5 Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.

ESV The dead tremble under the waters and their inhabitants.

NIV “The dead are in deep anguish, those beneath the waters and all that live in them. — establishing the concept of purgatory

2 Peter 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

NIV if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment. — In our hard copy version, the last phase, “while continuing their punishment” was in but the online version taken out! This means the concept of purgatory could be taken in or out!

Revelation 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

ESV and all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain.

1 Corinthians 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: — active voice

ESV that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, — passive voice

1 Corinthians 11:24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

ESV and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” — eliminate Christ’s body being broken for us, especially on the night of the thirteenth where He was severely beaten and wounded for our sin, and healing.

John 7:8 Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast: for my time is not yet full come.

ESV You go up to the feast. I am not going up to this feast, for my time has not yet fully come.” — ESV version shows He has no intent to go to the Feast, which isn’t right

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

RSV Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, a young woman shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. — this nonsense follows the Masoretic Text

Proverbs 8:22 The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

RSV The Lord created me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of old. 

NIV “The Lord brought me forth as the first of his works, before his deeds of old; — Strong’s H7069 — could be both possessed or created! 

Daniel 3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

ESV He answered and said, “But I see four men unbound, walking in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt; and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods.” — maybe the son of a pagan god

Matthew 1:25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus.

ESV but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus. — neglect to indicate that Jesus had brothers

Matthew 19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

RSV 16 And behold, one came up to him, saying, “Teacher, what good deed must I do, to have eternal life?” 17 And he said to him, “Why do you ask me about what is good? One there is who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments.” — change of emphasis

Matthew 27:35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

ESV And when they had crucified him, they divided his garments among them by casting lots. — eliminate the fact that Jesus fulfilled prophecy

Mark 15:3 And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing.

RSV And the chief priests accused him of many things. — eliminate the fact that Jesus fulfilled the Isaiah 53:7 prophecy

1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

ESV and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.

NIV but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. — “that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh” is the central theme in this verse, so these new versions were written or translated with the spirit of antichrist? or no?

Acts 2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

ESV Being therefore a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that he would set one of his descendants on his throne, — reduces the “Christ” impact, also the antichrist criteria pointed out above, that He came in the flesh

Matthew 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

ESV And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Luke 11:2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

ESV And he said to them, “When you pray, say: “Father, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. — “which art in heaven” and “Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth” taken out, so that you can now pray to the Pope as father, one on earth.

Luke 11:4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

ESV and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation. — ‘but deliver us from evil’ taken out

Luke 24:40 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet. — in the RSV whole verse taken out

John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

ESV No one has ascended into heaven except he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. — eliminate the fact that Christ is now in heaven

VOICE No one has ever journeyed to heaven above except the One who has come down from heaven—the Son of Man, who is of heaven. — best translation

John 6:33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

RSV For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven, and gives life to the world.” — reduces Christ emphasize to just bread

John 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

ESV Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life. — believes what? The Pope?

John 16:16 A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.

ESV “A little while, and you will see me no longer; and again a little while, and you will see me.” — because I go to the Father’ taken out

John 16:23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

RSV In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, he will give it to you in my name. — change of meaning altogether. NRSV and NIV okay!

Acts 9:29 And he (Paul) spake boldly in the name of the Lord Jesus, and disputed against the Grecians: but they went about to slay him.

ESV And he spoke and disputed against the Hellenists. But they were seeking to kill him. — “in the name of the Lord Jesus” taken out

Romans 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

ESV concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh — “Jesus Christ our Lord” taken out

Romans 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

ESV Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God; — impact of Jesus Christ as our God reduce by such change

1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

ESV Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness: He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated by the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.

Revelation 1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

ESV saying, “Write what you see in a book and send it to the seven churches, to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.” — “I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last” deleted

Revelation 5:14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

ESV And the four living creatures said, “Amen!” and the elders fell down and worshiped. — “him that liveth for ever and ever” taken out

DEDUCTIONS: What are those missing verses in your RSV and NIV Bible?

The NIV has removed at least 64,000 words from the Bible …

The NIV and RSV and other versions have also now removed 45 complete verses. Most of us have the Bible on our devices and phones. Changing the Word slowing and consistently, and but the end of a hundred years or so, a new “religion” could be found.

The King James Version is still the most reliable, and for modern versions either the New King James or the KJ21.

Matthew 17:21 “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.” — ESV whole verse taken out

Matthew 23:14 “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.” — ESV whole verse taken out, reducing the impact of judgement

Mark 7:16 “If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.” — ESV whole verse taken out

Mark 9:44 “Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” — ESV whole verse taken out

Mark 9:46 “Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” — ESV whole verse taken out

Mark 11:26 “But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.” — ESV whole verse taken out

Mark 15:28 “And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.” — ESV whole verse taken out, they don’t like the idea that Jesus fulfilled prophecy

Mark 16:9-20 (all 12 verses) — in ESV but not in NIV

9 Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.

10 And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.

11 And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.

12 After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.

13 And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.

14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

20 And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen. (KJV) — why the NIV took this out? They don’t believe that Jesus was resurrected (raised from the dead).

Luke 17:36 “Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.” — not in NIV; (ESV?)

Luke 22:43-44 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. — ESV whole verses taken out; not wanting to hear that Jesus was human or that He atoned for our sins by shedding His blood

Luke 23:17 “(For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)” — ESV whole verse taken out, not wanting to show that Jesus fulfilled prophecy

John 5:4 “For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.” — ESV whole verse taken out

John 7:53-8:11

KJV &:53 And every man went unto his own house.

KJV 8:1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. — ESV whole section taken out, not wanting to hear about repentance

Acts 8:37 KJV And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. — ESV and many other versions where whole verse taken out. Its deletion makes one think that people can be baptized and saved without believing on the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God. They dislike the fact that Jesus is the only way to be saved.

Acts 15:34 KJV “Notwithstanding it pleased Silas to abide there still.” — ESV whole verse taken out.

Acts 24:7 KJV “But the chief captain Lysias came upon us, and with great violence took him away out of our hands,” — ESV whole verse taken out.

Acts 28:29 KJV “And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.” — ESV whole verse taken out.

Romans 16:24 KJV “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.” — ESV whole verse taken out

I John 5:7 “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” — not in the early Greek manuscript

Gal 3:17 KJV And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.

ESV This is what I mean: the law, which came 430 years afterward, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to make the promise void. — “in Christ” is taken out

Gal 4:7 (KJV) Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

ESV So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God. — so there is no need to go through Christ

Gal 6:17 (KJV) From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

ESV From now on let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus. — Jesus is no longer consider Lord

Eph 3:14 KJV For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

ESV For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, — Jesus is no longer needed nor considered Lord to be bowed

Col 1:2 KJV To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

ESV To the saints and faithful brothers in Christ at Colossae: Grace to you and peace from God our Father. — Jesus is no longer consider Lord

Col 1:14 KJV In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

ESV in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. — Jesus’ blood is no longer needed

1 Tim 2:7 KJV Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.

ESV For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth — “in Christ” is not needed

2 Tim 4:22 KJV The Lord Jesus Christ be with thy spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.

ESV The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you. — the Lord is not identified

1 Tim 3:16 KJV And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

(ESV) Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness:

He was manifested in the flesh, — diminishing the fact that Christ was once God

vindicated by the Spirit,

seen by angels,

proclaimed among the nations,

believed on in the world,

taken up in glory.
