Archaic Words in the NIV - by Dr. Laurence M. Vance
----------------------  (This is only a partial list)  ------------------------
The following list of archaic words in the New International Version (NIV) is taken from
the 606-page, intensive and detailed, revised and updated work entitled,
"Archaic Words and the Authorized Version," by Dr. Laurence M. Vance. A partial list
is below, to give you the drift of the extent of the LIE, that the NIV is easier to read and
understand than the AV, or Authorized Version, which I refer to as the King James Version.
See the list in its entirety at http://www.av1611.org/kjv/vanceniv.html

I have done a tremendous amount of research into the watering-down of
the Gospel, and the outright perversions to be found in many of the newer "versions" of the Bible. Rather than expound upon it here at length, I
will put links up down below, so you can do your own research.
Archaic Words and the Authorized Version
By Dr. Laurence M. Vance
As suitable for reading as it is valuable for reference this book provides an explicit and comprehensive examination of every word in the Authorized Version of the Bible that has been deemed archaic, obsolete, antiquated, or otherwise outmoded. The result is both a fascinating and encyclopedic study of words--their meaning, derivation, usage, and significance. The thesis of this seminal work is that the Authorized Version is no more archaic than daily newspapers, current magazines, and modern Bible versions. This book is unique in that it seeks neither to criticize nor to correct the text of the Authorized Version. Extensively documented with over 5,000 footnotes, the book contains twenty-four chapters and fourteen appendixes, with a preface, introduction, epilogue, and bibliography. 606 Pages
