I will agree greatly that is a poor translation, and something I greatly 
dislike, even though the KJV is currently the translation I use. While I 
disagree with translating God's name that way and believe that we would 
have been and would be better off if it was included correctly.

I made the distinction because I did not wish to be associated with 
people who seem to believe it wrong to have anything other than YHWH and 
even that in the Hebrew. :(
I believe that is the position of EliYah who I think is associated with 
the RNKVJ.
I am not attempting to speak for EliYah, just my impressions.

I have not looked into the New Jerusalem Bible. In general I am very pro 
the open or non-proprietary Bibles. I prefer to use in print what I have 
the freedom to use in software. I will give the New Jerusalem a look.

Now I need to get busy installing Sword on my system. I just reinstalled 
Debian Linux to my machine.
