I have been reading the Old Testament stories in the ESV, starting in Genesis and now as far as I Chronicles. The ESV is great to read, because it keeps the basic structure of the KJV but removes the archaic "thees," "thous," and -eth endings. (For example, it says "hear" instead of "heareth" for action verbs.) And it is very interesting reading. Much easier than KJV. It's brought back a lot of memories of childhood Bible stories.
This morning I came across this verse:
That is a sobering reminder of the consequences of not following God!!
