Ignorance of the English language leaves scars that profanity is quick to fill. Cursing is the carrion of the language. So rise above such weaknesses and have pure speech that edifies and all those around you will be happier.

“Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so” (James 3:5-10).

Blessings In Using The KJV

For me, the one main blessing in using the King James Version through the years, has been the ease of memorization. Because of it using the King’s English (the Thee’s, Thou’s, verily, peradventure, etc.), it makes for easy memorization: http://www.songsofscripture.com/King-James-Version.html

Another blessing is the great reverence toward God that the KJV text presents. It’s beauty of reverential expression is unequaled: http://www.solagroup.org/articles/historyofthebible/hotb_0015.html

Here is a history of the KJV: http://www.bible-researcher.com/kjvhist.html
