There is no English in the world equal to that found in the 1611 Bible. The revisers knew more Greek, and less English. Whether the original text was inspired or not, I have never felt any doubt as to the divine inspiration of the version of 1611.

I believe a knowledge of the Bible without a college course is more valuable than a college course without a Bible.
