I'm serious, where is it? Is it in the Greek? Some hidden Latin? Where is it?
"I will lead the blind by a way they do not know, in paths they do not know I will guide them. I will make darkness into light before them and rugged places into plains. These are the things I will do, and I will not leave them undone." - Isaiah 42:16

The word of God is in the hands of the Holy Spirit. (John 16:13-15) Without His guidance and teaching, scriptures can be misunderstood, abused, twisted, and made meaningless.

As you and I have witnessed elsewhere, many wrongly handle the word of God to suit themselves, rather than desiring to seek and learn the glory of God.

Delving into the original languages is vital for scholars and church leaders, but these believers should retain the same dependence upon the Lord's leading and be motivated to seek the glory of God rather than their own.

we know the Word of God is trust worthy and sound in it's original form, although the King James does have it's problems it is very close and faithful to the original.
The Bible is the authority

If you have in your hands one of the proper translations of the Bible from the Hebrew and Greek into one of the vulgar languages, e.g., English, you can trust that you have the word of God in your hands.
  • WCF I.VIII. The Old Testament in Hebrew  (which was the native language of the people of God of old), and the New Testament in Greek  (which, at the time of the writing of it, was most generally known to the nations), being immediately inspired by God, and, by his singular care and providence, kept pure in all ages, are therefore authentical; (r) so as, in all controversies of religion, the Church is finally to appeal unto them. (s) But, because these original tongues are not known to all the people of God, who have right unto, and interest in the Scriptures, and are commanded, in the fear of God, to read and search them, (t) therefore they are to be translated into the vulgar language of every nation unto which they come, (u) that, the Word of God dwelling plentifully in all, they may worship him in an acceptable manner; (w) and, through patience and comfort of the Scriptures, may have hope. (x)

    r. Mt. 5:18.
    s. Is. 8:20; Acts 15:15; Jn. 5:39, 46.
    t. Jn. 5:39.
    u. 1 Cor. 14:6,9,11,12,24,27,28.
    w. Col. 3:16.
    x. Rom. 15:4.
No special class of persons, priestly orders, or papal pronouncements are required for anyone to have access to or knowledge of the word of God.
