    American Standard Version (ASV)
    21 And Elijah came near unto all the people, and said, How long go ye limping between the two sides? if Jehovah be God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.

    leaping (ylt) halt and limp (amp) waver (niv)
    the (MSG) CHANGED THE WHOLE SCRIPTURE
    this is what my bible says.
    21 Then E·li′jah approached all the people and said: “How long will YOU be limping upon two different opinions? If Jehovah is the [true] God, go following him; but if Ba′al is, go following him.” And the people did not say a word in answer to him.
    how long halt ye. what is that?
    yassup200 what translation is that i like it. its easy to read.

    New King James Version (NKJV) Romans 1:25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.—–

    New International Version, ©2011 (NIV) Romans 1:25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.——

    Amplified Bible (AMP) Romans1:25 Because they exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever! Amen (so be it).—–

    New Living Translation (NLT) Romans1:25 They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.

    Are these true? But I do believe and know that Satan can influence people to change the truth of GOD into a lie, just like he did in the Garden of Eden.——King James Version (KJV) Romans 1: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    What are your thoughts on these comparisons?

    I was really looking forward to playing and was expecting a long download/install time. Well low and behold, even though I bought a hard copy, I still have to go through cloud software (Steam). What? Why does that make any sense? The whole reason I bought a hard copy game was to avoid that whole cloud nonsense when downloading. Sure, when playing I’d like my info to be stored on an internet account, but I don’t want to have to download through the internet because my internet sucks! So here is my situation. I get CIV V, pop the disk into the CD/DVD Drive, it tells me to run civ v. So, I say yes, it goes to the first screen and it tells me install Sid Meir’s Civilization V. I’m like Hell Yes. It gets it’s files, and then begins installing Directx9. Like I said crappy internet. Anyway, It finishes downloading and it goes to the Steam updater and now i’m stuck. I’ve been “updating” now for about an hour or 2, guess how far i’ve gotten: 0%! Is this an internet problem, or should I have to wait a couple more days to install CIV V later?
    I fixed the problem. That is if you call waiting for the internet to get stronger so that way updater going properly a fix. Basically there is steam support site that says that if you want to install from a disk you go to go to the start menu, but i can’t remember what to do past that point. But it is working now.

    THE ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER

    This one is a little different…… Two Different Versions….
    ………….. Two Different Morals

    ——————————————————————————–

    OLD VERSION

    The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

    The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away..

    Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

    The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

    MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

    ——————————————————————————–

    MODERN VERSION

    The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

    The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away

    Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.

    CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shiveringgrasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

    America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

    How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

    Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green….’

    ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, “We shall overcome.” Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper’s
    sake.

    President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight.

    Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

    Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

    The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.

    The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it.

    The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

    The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and once peaceful, neighborhood

    Hi,

    I want to get Civ V for my laptop, but I will soon be working on a cruise ship so I will rarely have an internet connection. I understand that the DRM is being run with Steam. Does this mean that I need and internet connection to play it? Does it matter if I get the DVD version or just download it?
    Are you saying that I need to go online EVERY time I want to play it and then can go offline, or once I’ve been online with it I can start it anytime, even if I’m offline.
