“Divers weights, and divers measures, both of them are alike an abomination to the LORD.” (Proverbs 20:10)
The many English Bible versions available today are very different. Since it is the Bible against which the Christian must evaluate every truth claim, these many different Bible versions function as “divers measures”. In practice, Christians who use/consult many Bible versions tend to choose the readings they like, or the ones to their advantage, much like the dishonest merchant of the ancient world. It is difficult not to conclude that the LORD must consider this an “abomination”. Relative to Bible versions, there can be only one true measure, which functions as the universal standard. In English, that universal standard should be the King James Bible.
