I Think I Know Some of These Guys

Last night in our small group we were studying the ministry of Paul, Silas, and Timothy in Thessalonica.  As we were reading Acts 17:1-10, one of our readers read from the King James Version. 

In the New International Version, Acts 17:5 says that some Jews who were jealous of Paul “rounded up some bad characters from the marketplace.”  But you gotta love the KJV translation of this verse–instead of “bad characters” it calls them “certain lewd fellows of the baser sort.”

While I’m definitely not a big King James guy, there’s something to be said for turning a phrase like that.
