Why do the more modern translations delete certain verses, or part of verses, from the Bible. I was never able to understand that. The reason I initially switched over to the KJV 4 years ago was because I was being cheated from not having the full Bible. I was getting only parts of the Bible, with random parts just missing. Some verses that are taken out, that many people don't notice (I didn't either at first) are: Matthew 17:21 Luke 11:2-4 (cuts prayer) [in some version only I think] Mark 10:21 (omits "take up cross") [which I find rather important to that text] Matthew 6:13b (omits last part of prayer) Luke 17:36 Luke 23:17 John 5:4 Matthew 18:11 Mark 7:16 Mark 9:44 Mark 15:28 Romans 16:24 and many more The list is different versions, not necessarily just one. But I don't understand why verses should be tampered with? What do you guys think?
