In the KJV, Matthew 18:22 says that Jesus told Peter to, "forgive seventy times seven." In the NRSV, it only states seventy-seven times in same verse. Is there a reason for the difference in amounts?


Matthew 18:22

NKJV - 22 Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.
