I'd think that KJV or NASB would be easiest to get a hold of, but you'd pretty much need an old English dictionary to make sense of the KJV.
Either way...I'd grab an apologetics study bible, if you have the chance. It'll have answers to your questions. Even the hard ones. But any real bible will do.
Chozon1 wrote:KJV is, perhaps, more poetic and flows well. There are better translations even then though. KJV was written, if I remember correctly, from the Latin bibles that the church possessed. Didn't go off the OG manuscripts. It doesn't really have a problem with inaccuracy, but that fact bothers some people.
Due to some people going all "ONLY THE KJV, HOMES" on me for a while, I do believe there's a big thing among many Christians about the KJV being the most formally equivalent. There's this whole thing about Byzantine vs. Alexandrian (I think?) texts used to translate and the KJV using better manuscripts and blah blah blah basically if you don't use the KJV you're a horrible Christian.
