From my personal view point, a few have been locked away, but almost all of them are roaming around doing all the damage they can to humans.
They are preparing for Jesus return as much as we are.... Most are still in the second heaven, but come and go at thier pleasure for a while.... soon Michael will address that.
what is the difference between the KJV and the NKJV is there much difference, I am asking ? I love my KJV, but some words are not the same as in gen 6 sons of god, is it giants or nephilims, or violent wild men ? this is where I have a problem to know what is the best to be used to understand scripture? other bibles use different words and so the scripture does not mean the same in every bible.
I there were a clear answer to the question, which version is best, then it is doubtful that less that best version, would have much of market share.
If I want to memorize passages, I prefer the KJV, I think the funny weird English is easier to remember.
If I want easy to read and understand, I prefer an early version of the NIV.
If I want to have a Bible, that if pretty faithful to the original meaning in the original languages, and yet remain understandable,I refer the NASB (for American English readers). This is my favorite Bible for most uses.
If I want one with good study supplements, I like the ESV Study Bible, and second to that, I like the Thompson Chain reference bible, it which ever version I prefer that day.
For this reason, I like parallel Bibles, where several version are side by side.
My favorite New Testament only Bible, is The Zondervan Greek and English Interlinear New Testament (NASB/NIV) - Second Ecition.
If I had more time, I would give a detailed answer, but the best Bible, is the one you will be most likely to read often. Unread Bibles are of little use.
The truly best Bible, it the original autographs, the manuscripts penned by the human authors themselves, Moses, David, Paul, Luke, John, etc. Unfortunely, we do not have those, so we have to settle for something second best, at best.
