So today is Day 2 of my 31 Days of Scriptures of Faith Series. Today I want to focus on Psalm 31:23, which says, “O love the Lord, all ye saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.” as found in the King James version of the Bible. I personally love the “thees” and “thous” that are found in the King James version. I grew up reading it, so it really is the only Bible I ever knew. The imagery and words in the King James version just flow for me. Of course, I understand that everyone has had their own experiences. The most important or valuable or worthwhile translation is the one that you will actually pick up, dive into and spend time with God.
This verse assures us that we need to love our Lord and Savior. “He preserves” – what exactly does that mean? It means that God keeps those who are faithful to Him. We need to keep our focus and thoughts on God and not on the world aroudn us. He then will reward us mightily for those who do according to His purposes.
So what is your favorite translation of the Bible? I would love to hear from you. #31DaysofWriting #ScripturesofFaith
