Top 25 Verses From The King James Bible

8 minute read

The King James Bible has spoken to us for over 400 years! There’s nothing like the poetic language of the King James Version to create comfort in our souls. In fact, according to the History Channel the KJV Bible is still the most popular version, and the most sought out version when folks looks for Bible verses online.

Why the King James Version?

Many people love to read the KJV out loud for the rich and reverent language and phrasing.  Its expressive language makes it especially noteworthy for memorization.  Other translations like the NIV or NASB did not become popular until the 1980’s and so many folks can testify to the beauty of the KJV from the verses they memorized as a child.
