Not lazy, well maybe at times, but I was at work on a short break. Again bats are in the same category as birds,within that verse, so what?<quoted text>
New King James Version (NKJV)
13 ĎAnd these you shall regard as an abomination among the birds; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, the vulture, the buzzard, 14 the kite, and the falcon after its kind; 15 every raven after its kind, 16 the ostrich, the short-eared owl, the sea gull, and the hawk after its kind; 17 the little owl, the fisher owl, and the screech owl; 18 the white owl, the jackdaw, and the carrion vulture; 19 the stork, the heron after its kind, the hoopoe, and the bat.
Plus the NKJV came out in when I was 12 years old. Niv has different versions, of itself, so one should ask themselves why.
I believe every word of God is inspired by God, and is very important.
Most new versions do not, and sway it according to what they think.
Just one of many is the verse in kj -that says "little children how hard it is, for those who TRUST IN RICHES,to enter the kingdom of God.
Nkj - says "little children how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God.
John 3:16 -kj says only begotten Son.
Others say -only son.
I am a son of God "through Christ Jesus ",but there is only one begotten Son.
