I started out with a Nelson's New King James Bible. It has a lot of good stuff in the sub-texts, but as I got further into my interest I found myself going back to the older bibles until I ordered a reprint of the 1611 KJV Bible. I feel it has a sense of greater truth in it, but it is harder to read.
Judeth is spelled Ivdeth. Jesus is Iesus. Sun is Sunne. Etc.
But it has an extra section of scripture called Apocrypha. Overall I think it's a masterpiece compared to other bibles, just harder to read.
Anyway what copy is your favorite and why?
