Default Do we need Greek and Hebrew?

Hope no-one minds if I come in late with a comment, but after speaking to many modern version users and other critics of the KJB on this topic, I have found that constant referral to "the Greek" or the "originals" often it is just a symptom of a person not wanting to accept the final authority of Gods Word.

Also, often the Bible critic will display an element of "intellectual snobbery" , as if to say that a bunch of 17th century hicks could not possibly carry out the translation of the Bible as efficiently as more intelligent modern scholars.

I dont speak Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic or Latin. Neither do I have copies of ancient texts.....but the translators of the KJB could and did, along with Gods blessing on their work, and thats good enough for me.
