For a moment, let’s accept the KJV Only argument that the King James is the best translation from a manuscript standpoint as well as from tradition.  My question, that has yet to be answered, is “Why has it not been updated since the 1800?”

To give a reference, here’s something that always baffled me as a kid.  Who is Esaias?

Matthew 3:3 – For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

Bible

This past Sunday, in the message of the morning, the Pastor was in the book of I Kings, looking at the story of Elijah when he’s in the wilderness.  What stuck with me, when looking at this passage again, was the whole part of the passage where God tells Elijah just how many people He had for himself:

Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him. – I Kings 19:18
