ESV vs KJV (Better Bibles Blog)

Those following the ESV/KJV debate might be interested in this post by Suzanne McCarthy, explaining why she prefers the KJV as her literal translation. I don’t find the language of the KJV nearly as attractive as she does, but that’s a matter of taste in my view.

I always love to find the occasional comments by “anonymous”–clearly the same “anonymous” every time on Better Bibles–who has a love affair with pretending that subjective factors are actually objective beauty. Weird that . . .

    Do you know where the ESV translators got the little Paragraph markers? There is no notation, yet there are 9 paragraph markers in Gen 1 alone. I see no info in the introduction. Any thoughts?
    thanks,
