     I open my copy of the King James Bible.  If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasure: Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.  I enjoy opening the Bible at random and reading the first few lines on which my eyes alight. It’s like putting to the test the power of circumstance to body forth an oracle.


  1. I've always liked the language of the King James version. I loathe the modern revisions. They lose the poetry. I think a holy book should be poetic.

  2. I enjoy the least tampered with versions they seem to convey the original idea the best

  3. I know exactly what you mean. I find what seem like hidden gems simply by opening the Bible.
