Ahh, But NO !, j.l., You are LYING, Wrong, Deceived, Misguided & Spiritually Subverted; As The KJV-Bible did The BEST Job of Preserving God's Holy WORD in The English Language: For IT was Translated From The BEST, MOST RELIABLE, GOD-ORDAINED & PRESERVED MAJORITY Hebrew, Aramaic & Greek Manuscripts Available in ALL Human EXISTENCE.
The NIV, NASB, ETC. are WORSE, INFERIOR & CORRUPT Compared to The KJV-Bible; As They were Translated From The WORSE, LEAST RELIABLE, GOD-CONDENMED MINORITY Hebrew, Aramaic & Greek Manuscripts (Especailly from The Heretical-ALEXANDRIAN-Arian-Perverted/Corrupted Greek Manuscripts) !
There are TWO Lines of Greek NT Manuscripts by which ALL NT Bible Translations are DERIVED:
#1.The GOD-PRESERVED Majority Byzantine Greek NT Manuscripts: That The KJV-Bible is based on,
#2.The GOD-CONDEMNED ("DAMNED" if you please) Minority Alexandrian (Corrupted) Greek NT Manuscripts: That The RSV, NRSV, NIV, NASB, ETC. are based on.
"For There are Three That Bear Record in Heaven; The Father, The Word, and The Holy Ghost: and These THREE are ONE." (I John 5:7-KJVB) is GOD'S HOLY WORD !

Especially The TRUTH from ALMIGHTY GOD'S Pure, Holy, Divine, Infallible, Inerrant, Purified 7 Times, Preserved WORD in The English Language; that's been THE MOST WIDELY AVAILABLE English Bible To The English Speaking, Writing, Spelling & Communicating World for The last 400 years!
AND WILL BE UNTIL THE BLESSED RAPTURE OF CHRIST JESUS' TRUE CHURCH; THE COMING (GREAT) TRIBULATION, THE JUDGEMENT OF THE GREAT WHORE ("CHURCH": AKA ROMAN CATHOLICISM), THE MILLENIUM, JUDGEMENT & FINAL DOOM OF SATAN, HIS DEVILS & DEMONS; THE NATIONS & ALL UNREGENERATE, UNCONVERTED & LOST MANKIND: TO BE FOREVER TORMENTED IN THE LAKE OF FIRE:
YEA, AND THE AUTHORIZED "KING JAMES" VERSION OF THE AUTHORIZED HOLY BIBLE; GOD'S TRUE ONE-&-ONLY-HOLY-WRITTEN-WORD-MOST-AVAILABLE IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE EVER: WILL OUTLAST ALL OTHER ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS UP UNTIL THE CREATION OF THE NEW HEAVEN & THE NEW EARTH; WHEREIN DWELLETH ETERNAL, PERPETUAL, NON-DYING, EVERLASTING, EVER-EXISTING, EVER-HABITUAL RIGHTEOUSNESS ! ! ! ! ! ! !
