The King James Bible is written more in the speech of the time and uses words like ye, thee thy thou shall shalt and so forth. The New King James Bible has replaced those words with you, your, will, and so forth. To me it seems the working is just smoothed our, more readable and I enjoy this Bible immensely. It still retains all the necessary original words so that the meaning is still there. I recommend this Bible to everyone.
