Sometimes You Just Need The King James Version

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done in earth,
as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom,
and the power,
and the glory,
for ever.


Psalm 23

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

This is the way I learned these as a child. It makes me feel like a child again to recite them to my Father, and I think that is good.

  1. Although the NIV is my favorite, I often have to switch to the KJV to look certain verses up, because the KJVish versions are stuck in my head, or have the distictive terms I need to find the needle in the heystack.

    “The King James Version is GOD’s version of the bible. Because if it was good enough for Jesus, then it’s good enough for me!”


  2. Did I spell that “heystack”? Oh my. :-)
