What do KJV Words Mean?

Tom's Journal.

Just so you all understand and realize, that the honest, intended TRUTH of the venerable KJV Bible, can and should be known to all people with an honest, searching heart.   The Holy Spirit allows US to understand all the important things in the Bible, so that WE can ALL gain Salvation, for sure, know and believe it with a certainty ! ! !   Please,  NEVER get the idea that the Bible is full of mistakes and therefore of no benefit !!   2nd Timothy 3: 16, says, "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:  T hat the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."   I believe this with all my heart, and have personally, never found anything in the Bible that was untrue, or impossible to make sense of.     And to be sure, it is Satan the devil, who is misleading the entire inhabited Earth, who is the father of the lie, bent on deceiving as many humans as possible, leading them to hell, forever!!   So, the main  reason why I am posting this is to educate people as to the ever changing meanings of all modern languages/ words, terms,  even if they appear to be a 'foreign language' ... LOL !   But...  if we HAD TO LEARN ANOTHER LANGUAGE to gain Salvation, and Heaven, would it not be worth it ??   Remember that our heavenly Father, Jehovah, loves everyone, and hopes that we all might be Saved.   Unfortunately,   Satan, the LIAR seeks to destroy all of mankind, and he never sleeps, but continues to throw about entanglements and snares for us all,  especially the true Followers, and Fellow Believers in Christ, our Lord, Jesus.

Enjoy, and learn.

Although the English used in the 1611 King James Version (KJV) Bible is "modern," many of the words it employs are different than today. Some words are no longer used and many have changed their spelling over the years. The meaning of a word translated in the 17th century can at times be significantly different from the meaning we attach to it today.
An example of an archaic and confusing word in the KJV Bible is found in Leviticus 16. While discussing the preparations, events, etc. for the day of Atonement the word 'scapegoat' (Leviticus 16:8,10) is used. Our modern definition of a scapegoat is a person (or group, etc.) who is unjustly blamed for the negative actions of others. A boss, for example, who is stealing from the company he works for may try to blame an innocent lower-level worker for the thefts in order to avoid losing his job. This is not, however, the meaning intended by the verses. The scapegoat actually represents Satan the devil and his part in the sins of humanity. He will be responsible for his actions in deceiving others. He is certainly not an innocent party blamed for the actions of others!
