The early settlers from England who landed in North America brought with them the Geneva Bible. Later, however, the King James Version gained greater acceptance in America. As the British Empire expanded throughout the world, Protestant missionaries spread its use. Since many who translated the Bible into local languages were unfamiliar with Biblical Hebrew and Greek, the King James Version in English became the basis for these local translations.
Today, according to the British Library, “The King James, or Authorised, Version of the Bible remains the most widely published text in the English language.” Some estimates put the number of copies of the King James Version produced in print worldwide at over one billion!
Time for Change
Over the centuries, many have believed that the King James Version is the only “true” Bible. In 1870, work on a full revision of it started in England. Later a minor American revision of the resulting English Revised Version was published as the American Standard Version. * In a more recent revision, in 1982, the preface to the Revised Authorised Version says that effort was made “to maintain that lyrical quality which is so highly regarded in the Authorised Version” of 1611.
Although the Bible remains the world’s best seller—and the King James Version is the most popular one—Professor Richard G. Moulton observed: “We have done almost everything that is possible with these Hebrew and Greek writings. . . . We have translated them [and] revised the translations . . . There is yet one thing left to do with the Bible: simply to read it.”
Without question, the King James Version is a literary masterpiece, appreciated and valued for its unparalleled beauty of expression. But what about the importance of its message? The Bible’s inspired writings reveal the lasting remedy for the problems of our critical times. No matter which version or translation you choose to use, Jehovah’s Witnesses will be happy to help you in your study of the Bible.

THE AMERICAN STANDARD VERSION
In 1901 the American Standard Version was published. It was based on the text of the King James Version. Its preface states: “We are not insensible to the justly lauded beauty and vigor of the style of the Authorized [King James] Version.” Yet, the American Standard Version made a significant adjustment.
The preface explains this: “The American Revisers, after a careful consideration, were brought to the unanimous conviction that a Jewish superstition, which regarded the Divine Name as too sacred to be uttered, ought no longer to dominate in the English or any other version of the Old Testament, as it fortunately does not in the numerous versions made by modern missionaries.”
It is not that the divine name, Jehovah, does not appear at all in the King James Version. It does appear in four places, namely Exodus 6:3; Psalm 83:18; Isaiah 12:2; and Isaiah 26:4. The American Standard Version of 1901, however, restored the name to some 7,000 of its rightful places in the Bible.

May 24, 2018, 10:30am. About Me. In the post preceding this post, a post titled What is Faith?, I posted a note thanking Newsweek, and asking The New York Times, and The Washington Post and other newspapers, if they, too, will oblige.

May 24, 2018. About Me, continued. I then searched for the meaning of the word oblige, to make sure I had used the word in the right context. I was very surprised to see that hale is a synonym for the word oblige:
coerce, force, hale, pressure, squeeze –
https://www.thefreedictionary.com/obligeMay 24, 2018. About Me, continued. One track mind me, I thought about heart “squeeze“, and I of course thought about Hale Wilmer, and Hale and Hearty (HH) restaurant, and two of the Mormon Church of Satan’s “prophets”: now deceased businessman Robert Dean Hales, former president of Cheseborough Ponds beauty products, and current president of the Mormon Church of Satan, Russell Nelson, Cardiologist.Stephen M. Cutler is a lawyer and was the Director of the Division of Enforcement for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission from 2001 until 2005. He spent most of his career at the law firm Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, and became General Counsel of JPMorgan Chase in February, 2007.After graduating from Yale University with a B.A. (summa cum laude), Cutler aearned a J.D. from Yale Law School where he was an editor for the Yale Law Journal. Culer law clerked for Judge Dorothy Nelson on the Federal Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and then worked for the Center for Law in the Public Interest in Los Angeles.[3
May 24, 2018. About Me, continued. It was while looking at the definition for the word oblige that I noticed the word CITE, so of course, one track mind me, I thought about Cite restaurant on 51st Street, where I dined (summer 1995) with Mr. Lepercq, Michael J. Connelly, James Griffin, and two or three men whom I knew were federal agents, but did not know, at that time, that, they are Mormon federal agents. (Across the street from where Nat and I lived when we moved to Manhattan, the beginning of what I refer to as the nightmare.)
We dined upstairs, in a private alcove. I was the only female. I was struggling, at that time—one of many times—to not drink. (But not struggling to not drink in public. My struggle was a struggle at home.)
When the waiter began pouring the wine, I turned my glass upside down. Whomever arranged that business dinner (in celebration of completion of a financial deal, the specifics of which I cannot remember and really did not know anything about), really did not know me very well. Drinking in public was not a temptation for me. Never did I have a glass of wine or any other alcoholic beverage during dinner, or even privately in my room, any of the times I was at Arrowwood Conference Center or any of the other conference centers. I didn’t even think about drinking during dinner at conference centers, or alone in the hotel room. I drank at home, during dinner with my husband, or alone when our daughter was asleep and my husband was not at home.
So, what was expected of me? That I would drink, get drunk, and dance on the table—put on a show for the male diners??
I was seated next to Mr. Lepercq, who was seated at the head of an oblong table. Mike sat to my left, Jim sat across from me, the three Mormons sat next to Mike and Jim. (Kimball—from South Carolina, who a few weeks earlier gave me a South Carolina tote bag that I threw in the garbage because, that a businessman who in my opinion had such an air of superiority, would take the time to purchase a tote bag [similar to the Hawaiian King tote bag] for me, when he never spoke two words to me, was puzzling to me, though I did not know at the time, he is a Mormon—was not present at that dinner, or maybe so; I did not speak to any of the three federal agents or get a good look at them, I was very timid at that time, it was all very weird.)
During dessert when Mr. Lepercq told a somewhat risque joke is when I said goodnight and went home. I did not drink any wine that night; I was really struggling to not drink.
I have no complaint against Mr. Lepercq (who is now deceased), Michael J. Connelly or James Griffin (or Francois Letacounnoux); in fact, I am hoping Michael J. Connelly will be one of the attorneys representing me when the go-nowhere legal case that’s a figment of my lunatic imagination reaches its destination: The Hague, Netherlands.
Even if Mike or Jim now lie and say the above mentioned dinner never happened, neither would lie under oath. Note to FBI agents who are not involved in the Mormon Church of Satan’s hidden agenda: Please make sure no harm befalls these three men or anyone in their families. cc all Mormon barristers
During that dinner (summer 1995) I did not yet know that God’s visible organization was being viciously persecuted in France.
I was inactive, and struggling to come back to Jehovah. When I telephoned Jesse LaRue while sitting at my desk at Lepercq de Neuflize and invited him and his wife, Beth, to go with me and my grandson Wesley, then an infant, to Disneyworld, I did not know that Disneyworld is of no interest to mature Christians, and I did not know that France was persecuting true Christians. (I had planned to save money for one or two years, for expenses for the four of us, but probably would not have been able to, and anyhow, Beth and Jesse were not interested, and now, neither am I. Note to FBI agents who are not involved in the Mormon Church of Satan’s hidden agenda: Please make sure no harm befalls Beth or Jesse because of me stating their “UnAmerican” “UnPatriotic” Uninterest in exploitative fantasyland Disneyworld. [Beth nor Jesse ever expressed to me any such disinterest. It’s just that I now know, I really know, Jehovah’s Witnesses, round and about, inside and out.] cc all Mormon barristers)
Even when Mormon Danites/Danettes arranged for a spokesman from Disneyworld in Paris (or Tokyo—which one, I cannot remember) to hold a meeting for Lepercq employees (in response to my telephone conversation with Jesse though I did not realize so at the time), a meeting I would rather not have attended but it seemed to be obligatory, I still did not know.
And why I, of all people, was chosen to do this work that I do, I still do not know.
When I was employed at Lepercq de Neuflize I did not know, that, France was viciously persecuting Jehovah’s Witnesses.[Mormon computer gremlins deleted the links to reference scriptures:] John chapter 15
19 If YOU were part of the world, the world would be fond of what is its own.+ Now because YOU are no part of the world,+ but I have chosen YOU out of the world, on this account the world hates YOU.+
20 Bear in mind the word I said to YOU, A slave is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will persecute YOU also;+ if they have observed my word, they will observe YOURS also.
21 But they will do all these things against YOU on account of my name, because they do not know him that sent me.

Many Christian denominations consider the interpretations and doctrines of Jehovah’s Witnesses to be heretical. Some religious leaders have accused Jehovah’s Witnesses of being a cult. According to law professor Archibald Cox, in the United States, Jehovah’s Witnesses were “the principal victims of religious persecution … they began to attract attention and provoke repression in the 1930s, when their proselytizing and numbers rapidly increased.”
Political and religious animosity against Jehovah’s Witnesses has at times led to mob action and government oppression in various countries, including Cuba, the United States, Canada, Singapore, and Nazi Germany. The denomination’s doctrine of political neutrality has led to imprisonment of members who refused conscription (for example in Britain during World War II and afterwards during the period of compulsory national service).
During the World Wars, Jehovah’s Witnesses were targeted in the United States, Canada, and many other countries for their refusal to serve in the military or help with war efforts. In Canada, Jehovah’s Witnesses were interned in camps along with political dissidents and people of Japanese and Chinese descent. Activities of Jehovah’s Witnesses have previously been banned in the Soviet Union and in Spain, partly due to their refusal to perform military service. Their religious activities are currently banned or restricted in some countries, for example in Singapore, China, Vietnam, Russia and many Islamic states.
Prior to World War II, the French government banned the Association of Jehovah’s Witnesses in France, and ordered that the French offices of the Watch Tower Society be vacated.[Note 1] After the war, Jehovah’s Witnesses in France renewed their operations. In December 1952, France’s Minister of the Interior banned The Watchtower magazine, citing its position on military service. The ban was lifted on November 26, 1974.
In the 1990s and 2000s, the French government included Jehovah’s Witnesses on its list of “cults“, and governmental ministers made derogatory public statements about Jehovah’s Witnesses.[Note 2] Despite its century of activity in the country, France’s Ministry of Finance opposed official recognition of the denomination; it was not until June 23, 2000 that France’s highest administrative court, the Council of State, ruled that Jehovah’s Witnesses qualify as a religion under French law. France’s Ministry of the Interior sought to collect 60% of donations made to the denomination’s entities; Witnesses called the taxation “confiscatory” and appealed to the European Court of Human Rights.[Note 3][Note 4] On June 30, 2011, the European Court of Human Rights ruled that France’s actions violated the religious freedom of Jehovah’s Witnesses by demanding 58 million euros in taxes.
Jehovah’s Witnesses in France have reported hundreds of criminal attacks against their adherents and places of worship.[Note 5]
During the ban of The Watchtower in France, publication of the magazine continued in various French territories. In French Polynesia, the magazine was covertly published under the name, La Sentinelle, though it was later learned that The Watchtower had not been banned locally. In Réunion, the magazine was published under the name, Bulletin intérieur.
The following Delta Faucet advertisement, advertised with article about Cite restaurant which is now closed, features chemical symbol tile wall. The first time I noticed chemical symbol tiles was one day when I lived in Hoboken (2009), walking from the PATH train, on Warrington Plaza, in that area I noticed that the pavement was patterned in a chemical symbol pattern. The same as this pavement in this photo of NYPD Academy graduates (note Mormon signature Poland Springs water; note too, one Academy student or graduate, an Asian young man, is standing in a pigeon toe stand, lips clasped):

FOR THE RECORD. The Mormon Church of Satan has no dental school, but they do have a dental academy, a group of Mormon and non-Mormon dentists, the number of which increases day by day, all busily, secretively, implanting Nazi microchips in people’s mouths (including children and newborns) without their knowledge or their consent.

FOR THE RECORD, THE LEGAL CASE. Before publication of the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures, American Standard Version was the preferred translation used by God’s visible organization, Jehovah’s Witnesses (because of ASV inclusion of God’s holy divine name).
