Re 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy. This could be done by denying, or explaining away the words of prophecy. To do either is a deadly sin. Indeed, to tamper with the Divine word in any way is sinful.

Actually Revelation 22:19 is a statement that is for the Prophecy of Revelation. The Bible was not compiled into one book until the Catholic Ecumenical Council in the 4th century. What revelation 22:19 warns is this any interpretation has to fit 100 , 100 of the time. It is not a question of translation or mistranslation, it is a question of contextual interpretation of the entire Book of Revelation. A stern warning to not take the Book of Revelations to vilify any group that only fits 70 of the prophecy but does not fulfill all.

Just as revelation 22 verse 18-19 says, obey the word! It 's written! I only stick to KingJames! NIV bible is missing powerful words! Yet many teachers teach from it! Truth is truth! We living in a dark world and I 'm not surprised bibles being tampered with! Children gets a hold of these bibles may loose the truth on Gods principles! It 's up to the individual to search seek and find! When God says it 's a command then do it! Read from a watered down bible! You get a watered down teaching! To a compromising teacher! No power no flame! Luke warm!!!

I believe if someone makes a new bible and translates it into something they believe is to be true when its not than they are taking away the words of the bible ...and if you think about it that could even apply to preaching the bible and sending the wrong messages ,,because if your not teaching the right way what the bible says and your preaching your own version of it than in a way thats also takeing the words out of he bible

For one example, the NIV takes out the word "blood " from God 's Word over 200 times. To say that translations outside of the 1611 KJV only change the materical for those "not as educated " is a very uneducated thing to say. Please research and pray on this topic more before sharing your opinion to those who still may be young Christians. P.S. Studies have been done on the 1611 KJV and they found that it only requires a 6th grade reading comprehension level to understand it. Even if you as an adult come across a word you do not understand, you can study the meaning or simply use the context of the verse. It 's sad there is so much confusion over the topic, the previous poster is correct, we should not quarrel over translations however, in a sin riddled world, this is another tactic of the devil to cause dissention in the church.

Once I was doing a memory verse quiz and I couldn 't remember what it was, and I wrote what I thought that it was close to, but I know it wasn 't right. I don 't know if I took away from the Bible or not.

Charles, The verse does NOT say "those who change the bible..." it says, "those who TAKE AWAY from the words of this book of prophecy..."
The different translations are for those who are not as educated in reading the English language. It allows for them to understand the bible and comprehend what God wants them to know. The different translations are broken down by readying level. If you think about it the only difference in King James and New King James is the "thee, thou, thus, etc." There is really nothing changed in the bible, and yet it says the same thing. The same message that Christ came and saved us all from our sins is still written in there. Now when you take that part our you have "Taken Away" not changed.
I don't think God intended for us to quarl over the different translations, but yet gave the writes/printers the ability to reach a new generation with their understanding of the Word of God.
We as Christians should not be here complaining about the differences in the translations, but doing as the Bible says in Matthew 27: 19-20 "The Great Commission.
Thanks for listening and God bless!

Iím very grateful to have such references on how to love God with all my heart, better myself in Godís eyes, and serve him alone. With regard to Revelation 22:19, I give glory to God hence he gave great warnings as for anyone who wishes to recite or teach any preaching or any other lecture not to twist, tangle, misconstrue, alter etc.., the words of Ďthe prophecies of the bibleí: that may cause the Lordís true followers to be confused with misunderstandings of the true word of God! Most important since this command is located near end of Bible, itís one that sticks to you to obey; it gives off a very important spiritual closing!!!

What does it mean that ďGod will take away his part out of the book of lifeĒ?
Charles's comment on 2011-01-11 19:19:41:
I dont understand why people still make different translations of the Bible when the Bible says not to change it
