How Does the SDA Clear Word Bible Compare to God's Word?



2 Corinthians 12:1-4 (King James Version)

1 It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.

2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.

3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)

4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.


2 Corinthians 12:1-4 (New International Version)

1 I must go on boasting. Although there is nothing to be gained, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord.

2 I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows.

3 And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows—

4 was caught up to paradise. He heard inexpressible things, things that man is not permitted to tell.

2 Corinthians 12:1-4 (SDA Clear Word Bible)

1 I shouldn't continue talking about myself but I will tell you about the visions and spiritual insights the Lord has given me.

2 Over fourteen years ago, when Barnabas brought me from Tarsus to Antioch, I was already preaching Christ. Then one day I was taken up to the heaven of heavens to where God is. Whether I was taken there bodily or just saw it all in vision, I can't tell you. To this day I still don't know, only God knows.

3 Let me say again: Whether I was taken to heaven bodily or just saw it all in vision, I don't know, only God knows.

4 How it happened is a mystery, but it did happen. The things I was and heard while there are impossible to put into words. How I wish I had the language of heaven to tell you! But even if I could and you could understand it all, I would not be permitted to tell you everything I saw unless God told me to.
