That tradition from the KJV through the ESV has produced some lovely translations - in particular the old NAS, which my mom had us memorize as kids. I've got a 1611 edition of the KJV and it's awesome! If it hadn't set the Deuterocanonicals in a blasted Appendix it would've been perfect  :censored:

I'm a cradle Catholic, but I've always loved the KJV. Mine does not have any commentaries or footnotes, but I don't need it for my personal use. I'm sure there are better Bibles for study, and maybe even for devotional reading. But nothing beats the King James when it comes to memorization and recitation. It's the only Bible that I actually read out loud alone in my room. Once you get used to it, it's not cumbersome to the tongue. Compare KJV psalms, and Matthew's Sermon on the Mount with other versions. And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

Simply beautiful!
