Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth
2nd Timothy 2:15, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
The King James Bible is the only Bible that tells us to rightly divide the word of truth. That verse is the key verse when it comes to understanding the ole KJB! New versions only confuse people and take away their understanding!
|Study to shew thyself approved unto God||rightly dividing the word of truth||shun profane and vain babblings||increase unto more ungodliness|
|NIV||Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved||correctly handle the word of truth||Avoid godless chatter||those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly|
|NASB||Be diligent to present yourself approved to God||accurately handling the word of truth||avoid worldly and empty chatter||lead to further ungodliness|
|Message||Concentrate on doing your best for God, work you won't be ashamed of...||laying out the truth plain and simple...||Stay clear of pious talk. Words are not mere words, you know.||If they are not backed by a godly life, they accumulate as poison in the soul.|
