Archaic Words in the King James Bible-Amana

We are repeatedly told about all the archaic words in the King James Bible.  Here again we have a business using an archaic word from the King James Bible to name its business.  Amana makes refrigerators, ovens, freezers, microwaves, and other kitchen products.  I guess these large corporations will never learn to not use archaic King James Bible words as the name of their company.

Song of Solomon 4:8 (KJV) ¶ Come with me from Lebanon, my spouse, with me from Lebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, from the lions’ dens, from the mountains of the leopards.

  1. Really? LOL
    It is capitalized and is a Name of a place.
    Art thou bored with this topic or whateth? Shalt I talketh with thee in the Kings English? that is what makes the KJV so hardeth to readeth. We do not talketh this way and it maketh reading it difficult.
    I read KJ but I am not a KJ only person. Because of its flaws. Like the bad translation of Passover in Acts 12:4 being changed to Easter (a pagan word of Istar). Why did the translators do that? We can guess but let us think here was it deliberate or an accident? they gave themselves ONE verse to detract from the Hebrew Savior and Hebrew God. Making it okay to practice and participate in Pagan rituals. Anything to get away from those Jews… sad that antisemitism is in churches and printed in our Bibles. And it has NEVER been fixed in the KJV. This is just one of several that really irritates me about this version of Scripture. But I haven’t found any perfect version of Scripture in English and I am certain these errors are in all languages because we have to perpetuate these errors to keep our traditions of men going.

    1. Acts 12:1 (KJV) Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
      Acts 12:2 (KJV) And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
      Acts 12:3 (KJV) And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
      Acts 12:4 (KJV) And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.

      Ronnie, the reason that the King James Bible translators placed Easter in Acts 12:4 is because Passover does not work. If the King James Bible translators had put Passover in the King James Bible in Acts 12:4, it would have been an error in an otherwise perfect Bible. The God of the Bible is very precise and his word is also very precise. First we need to look at the context. You do remember context. You can’t just make up things as you go. You have to submit to the context of the passage in Scripture. Let’s take a look at the verse immediately before Acts 12:4.

      Acts 12:3 (KJV) And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)

      You will notice that in Acts 12:3 there is a parenthetical phrase. This parenthetical phrase is added by the Author to give us some critical information. By the way the Author of the Bible is God. This information is “then were the days of unleavened bread”. This phrase is telling us that the Passover is past. The Passover is one day and one day only. This is the reason that Passover in Acts 12:4 is an error. If Passover was correct, then Herod would have to keep Peter until after the Passover of the next year. This does not fit with the context of Acts 12. Let me repeat again. If it is the “days of unleavened bread” then the Passover is already past. Easter is the first Sunday after the Passover. Easter is during the “days of unleavened bread”. Easter and Passover are not the same. Herod is a pagan king. As a pagan king, Herod would kill Peter after his pagan holiday of Easter.

      Leviticus 23:6 (KJV) And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.

      When the Bible uses the phrase “then were the days of unleavened bread” this is referring to the seven days of the feast of unleavened bread. The feast of unleavened bread starts on the 15th day and goes for seven days.

      Leviticus 23:5 (KJV) In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD’S passover.

      The Passover is on the 14th day which is the day before the feast of unleavened bread which starts on the 15th day of the month. Therefore, when the Bible says “then were the days of unleavened bread” the Passover is already past. Easter occurs most of the time during the seven days of the feast of unleavened bread. This is the reason that the Passover would have been the wrong word in Acts 12:4. Passover in Acts 12:4 would have been a contradiction with “then were the days of unleavened bread” in Acts 12:3 resulting in an error in an otherwise perfect Bible.

      Ronnie, Easter in Acts 12:4 in no way makes it ok for Christians to practice pagan rituals. Anyone with half a brain can tell that Easter is a pagan holiday. Just look at the Easter bunny and all the other non-Biblical practices associated with Easter. The Lord Jesus Christ is a Jew and HE kept the feasts of Israel. Anyone that reads and studies the Bible knows that the Lord Jesus Christ rose from the grave on the feast of first fruits and not on Easter. I am a King James Bible believer and I agree with you on Easter being pagan. This is the only thing that we have agreed on so far and may be the only thing we ever agree on.

      Easter in Acts 12:4 in no way promotes antisemitism in the church. Actually, what you believe promotes antisemitism in that you are a fake Jew. You don’t believe that the nation of Israel are the Jews, you think you are a Jew when you are a Gentile. Fake Jews like you are against the nation of Israel.

      Revelation 2:9 (KJV) I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

      Revelation 3:9 (KJV) Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

      Ronnie, once again you are not a Bible believer since you do not have a perfect infallible copy of the word of God that you can hold in your hand. You believe in a fathom bible that does not exist anywhere in the world or in heaven for that matter. You are not a Bible believer since you do not have a perfect copy of the Bible. You can’t hand anyone a copy of the perfect Bible because you don’t have one. I have a perfect copy of the Bible. I can hand a person a perfect copy of the Bible when asked what Bible I believe in. That Bible is the King James Bible.
