Well, all versions tell the same accounts, so I don't think there's a most "compelling" version. The KJV, however, is the most accurate. The "modern" translations are based on Roman Catholic manuscripts and differ from the Greek text of the KJV over 5,000 times. In faction, the NASV alone has over 36,000 "differences" between it and the NT of the KJV alone.

What I normally go to is NetBible
It is a pretty much middle of the road type translation, and it gives notes to explain why they chose to translate it the way they did.
I have a couple hard copies, that I printed and bound, of books from the Bible in that translation, that I refer to if I am not on the computer.
There is also a printed version you can buy.

By compelling, I meant which text resonates with you: for instance: a jehovas witness will point to different verses than a Jesuit for their inspirations.
I read some of your comments and you seem to know more about christianity than most on here so maybe you can help me answer these questions?
- What is the proper way to end a prayer?,. if there is one (amenn?)
-What is divine interception?

I have more questions but I'll just leave those for now

"The most accurate." COMPARED TO WHAT?! Almost all versions are nearly the same, they differ in words but not in meaning. They merely offer different translations to suck more and more people into the radical idea's that the bible contains like how to treat slaves, and how you can cut off your wife's hand if she grabs another mans genital's while protecting you. To many people put too much importance on a book. A true god wouldn't need scripture written down by man to get his point across. He would instinctively place it in each of his creations. Don't dwell on the obsolete. Lets take what we can morally accept from the bible and leave the rest for the scoundrels, and fools.

Do you want the olde english version thats hard for modern english speakers to understand or a modern bible where you are left with less head scratching? I don't recommend the old Latin Vulgate because that one exhorts Mary as the savior and not Christ.

Go with the NIV if you're a new christian, or NKJV then jump around to different ones for various translations. I like the Aramaic to english version because Yeshua spoke Aramaic.

I see what you mean. In any case, I'd have to pick the KJV.

Regarding prayer.. There is no "proper" way to begin or end a prayer. Prayer is simply talking to God. There is no "formal" or "informal" way to pray. Speak to your Heavenly father as you would your Earthly father. Personally, I say "Amen", "Goodnight" or "I love you".

And do you mean divine intervention? That's simply defined as a "miracle perceived to be caused by a Deity's active involvement in the human world."

If you want me to give you an example, of what I feel is divine intervention, aka - a miracle - see my thread regarding my Mother's Life Testimony.

That's something I consider a miracle, or divine intervention.
