So what? As I said, the NKJV agrees with modern versions against the KJV on these readings. The English has a different meaning.

As to Ezra 8:36 “lieutenants” is not a good translation for the Persian word “achashdarpan.”
Thank you for admitting that you believe the NKJV actually corrects the KJV. That clears up a lot, but it also makes your earlier points about language updates of no effect.

Another reason the NKJV should be rejected is that the authors of it show they do not hold to the underlying received text, because they include over 100 marginal notes that cast doubt on them by including critical text readings. Critical text readings are utterly irrelevant to devotional Bible study and have no business "footnoting" God's word.
