  1. Subject: 1789 Comment on the KJV

    "Dr. Symonds-1789

    The ambiguities in our version are very numerous, and sometimes too
    gross to be defended. Whoever examines our version in present use,
    with the least degree of attention, will find that it is ambiguous
    and incorrect, even in matters of the highest importance. There are
    some writers who fairly acknowledge these mistakes
    and imperfections, but strenuously maintain that to new-model or to
    revise our version would be a rash and dangerous experiment, as it
    might unhinge the minds of weak Christians, and disturb the public
    quiet. These arguments, which are the result of timidity rather than
    of prudence, have been adopted in all ages, and in all countries;
    and have been the perpetual obstacles to improvement in several
    parts of Europe. BUT IS ERROR EVER SO VALUABLE AN INHERITANCE THAT
    IT OUGHT NEVER TO BE RELINQUISHED? Can it be sanctified by the plea
    of a long prescription? There are other writers who warmly contend
    that our version is sufficiently clear and obvious in all things
    necessary to be delivered and practiced, and that therefore to alter
    it in the least degree would be a daring and mischievous innovation.
    On this point I will freely join issue with them, and rest the
    merits of the case upon a single argument. Hath not the
    misrepresentation of one word driven thousands of well-meaning
    Christians from holy communion? For the truth of this melancholy
    assertion, we may safely appeal to the masters of families, and to
    such as are concerned in parochial cures."

  2. "Who will say that the uncommon beauty and marvellous English of the Protestant Bible is not one of the great strongholds of heresy in this country? It lives on the ear, like music that can never be forgotten, like the sound of church bells, which the convert hardly knows how he can forego. Its felicities often seem to be almost things rather than words. It is part of the national mind, and the anchor of national seriousness. Nay, it is worshiped with a positive idolatry, in extenuation of whose grotesque fanaticism its intrinsic beauty pleads availingly with the man of letters and the scholar. The memory of the dead passes into it. The potent traditions of childhood are stereotyped in its verses. The power of all the griefs and trials of a man are hid beneath its words. It is the representative of his best moments, and all that there has been about him of soft and gentle, and pure and penitent and good, speaks to him forever out of his Protestant Bible. It is his sacred thing which doubt has never dimmed and controversy never soiled." Dr FW Faber
