I disagree. God could speak in any dilect, accent, contempary or old world ,
that he wanted. God would not be limited to the language that the Bible was
written in. As for Bible verse translation? Well.......The original texts
were written without puncuation and ALL sentinces ran together. Now along
comes King James who commisions several educated men to translated the old
mauscripts into a dilect of speech that was EASY to understand of the day.
Such practices have been done today. NIV, NKJV, and my Favorite...the New
Living Translation or NLT. (or as I like to say, "The plain English Bible")
My point is you can rewrite a sentince so its easier to read and not lose
the meaning of said sentince or verse. Example, KJV says, "David slept in
the city of his forfathers". NLT says, "David Died and was barried in the
city of his ansesters". After all. The apostles never spoke in middle
English.

Your Bro. In Him,

          Shaun
