mauvepink BS: How the Bible altered how we speak (66* d) BS: How the Bible altered how we speak 17 Jan 11

I just happened upon a rather interesting piece on the BBC website again

King James Bible: How it changed the way we speak

This thread is not intended for those who do or do not believe in the Bible. What it does show is how it influences even the most atheistic people who, often unknowingly, quote pieces of the Bible almost every day.

What's your favourite piece of scripture from the King James? Do you have a favourite phrase or saying that heralds from the Bible?

One it would seem I use a great deal is "Do unto others as you would have them do to you" Luke 6:31, but there are many more too. "Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings..." Psalms 8:2 and Matthew 21:16

Here are some King James version Bible proverbs to get you started

Hope you enjoy
