The other night in church an old friend was ministering and he was preaching out of the KJV. I happen to have my HCSB with me (now a days I carry several translations on my Android) and noticed a subtle funny difference between the two.
The HCSB has received some flack about it’s usage of “Bless(ed)” in the Psalms. For instance in Psalms 1:1
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly… KJV
How happy is the man who does not follow the advice of the wicked…HCSB
However, it is backwards in 1 Peter 3:14
But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye…KJV
But even if you should suffer for righteousness, you are blessed…HCSB
There you have it, I guess when I am blessed I will be happy.
