prop'-er: For the King James Version "proper" (child), in Heb 11:23, the Revised Version (British and American) substitutes "goodly"; in 1Ch 29:3; 1Co 7:7, the Revised Version (British and American) "own" is employed, and for the too emphatic "their proper tongue" in Ac 1:19 "their language" is written. But none of the King James Version forms are really obsolete.

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture.
