One of the near-universal but untested assumptions of “King James Only”-ites is that Psalm 12:6, 7 has specific reference to God’s perfect preservation of Scripture in the copying and translating process, and that more specifically this refers to the King James Version, and in truth only to the KJV and no other Bible version in English or any other language on earth. This interpretation is both grossly arbitrary and wholly unsound.(source)

Many KJV only advocates use Psalm 12:6-7 as a defense for their King James Only doctrine. Please visit “Purified Seven Times”: A Case of Defective Exegesis and Improper Application by Doug Kutilek and join the conversation.
