4.  Listen to the bible. I took a chance and downloaded a torrent that claimed to provide the entire bible in audio format.  I was not disappointed!  Recommended!  Here is the torrent file:

KJV King James Version Audio Bible Non Dramitized MP3 (18KB)

(If you do not know how to handle a torrent file, then don’t waste your time.  First learn about torrents, then come back and try downloading this.)

The torrent will download a zipped file, which is about 857MB.  After you unzip it, you will find all the MP3 files neatly organized by book.

The torrent provides all the audio files neatly organized in folders by book.

The words are spoken clearly in a mature, male, American accent. The narrator’s name was not available. Maybe he wants credit from God and not from men. :-) But the narrator that recorded the bible to audio is clearly helping men learn about God.

I audited the accuracy of the reading, and the words were the same, so I trust this audio recording to be accurate.

How I Read the Bible the First Time

It is sometimes tough to get through the KJV, especially the first reading. If there are many proper names in a book, or if there are words I had a hard time pronouncing, I would listen to the audio while reading along.  I let the narrator do the tough work of pronouncing the words. I paused the audio sometimes to think about the deep meaning of the verses.  Because the difficulty level is elevated for the KJV, it matches what I imagine God to be:  an infinitely wise God.

The newer versions of the bible have been corrupted.  I stick with the King James Version. In my opinion, God would not allow his official word to be copyrighted. The King James Version is free and in the public domain.

Conclusion

The King James Version is truly free, because God made it so.
