The 21st Century King James Version is Here!

Found in the preface of the 21st Century King James Version:
It is not a new translation, but a careful updating to eliminate obsolete words by reference to the most complete and definitive modern American dictionary, the Webster's New International Dictionary, Second Edition, unabridged. Spelling, punctuation, and capitalization have also been updated.
Found in the text of 2 Thess 2:6-7 in the 21st Century King James Version:
And now ye know what withholdeth, that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now holdeth back will hold him back, until he is taken out of the way.
Um . . . er . . . why do I get the feeling they missed the point? Oh well, at least they changed "letteth" to "holdeth." And I thought I was behind the times : )
