My KJB says "oaths". I do not have to accept the apostrophes of printers.

How do you resolve the issue? Do you accept some man's word. What is the man's name that put the apostrophe before the s? My 1611 KJB came first, it is your Bible that is the altered one.

There are no perfect Greek manuscripts or texts. Correct, but so what? The manuscripts were some ancient believers' (imperfect) Bibles. From those MSS many printed Greek (better, but imperfect) texts were made, and then early English (imperfect) translations. Is there any doubt among the Greek texts that the word translated by the KJB men should be "oaths"?

Among people that understand Greek, is there any disagreement that the word translated "oaths" is plural in Greek here?

Nope. I am rejecting that the printers got it right.

You reject the 1611 KJB as it stands. If you sit in judgement of the 1611 KJB without any evidence, you're just guessing.

Well, I tried to show you this one (actually two) but you won't accept it.

Don't be riduclous. The printers' errors don't change doctrine.
