Caution, people! NO FRENCH! Read your Scripture in ENGLISH, the language Jesus spoke!

From, "" message board:

Unless you can find a trustworthy person to help you choose, I would avoid it. Just as there are many versions in English, there are different versions in French (and other languages). If you are not VERY careful, you'll end up in a bad version.

If English is your primary language, stick with the KJV.

By the way, there are people out there who are translating the KJV into other languages. Though the KJV is a perfect translation, translating the KJV into other languages (second generation translations) creates imperfect (in fact, flawed) translations.
