In the course of creating this collection of NFTs, I discovered a number of verses that are not present in the American Standard Version, the translation I used.
These verses are also not present in most modern translations of the Bible. How come?
According to bible scholars, and as seen on bibleref.com, this means that these verses are not found in the more accurate ancient manuscripts. You will find these “missing verses” in the King James Version.
Below is a list of the 5 verses found in the KJV, but not in the ASV. I encourage you to click these links to bibleref.com to read the specific reasons these verses were omitted. You will find in all cases, removing them hasn’t changed anything significant – the concept is either repeated in a previous verse, or is not relevant to any theology.

|MAT.17.21||Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.|
|MAT.23.14||Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.|
|ACT.28.29||And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.|
|MRK.11.26||But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your offenses.|
|ROM.16.24||The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.|
Mark 11:26 sure sounds pretty important, right?!
