I experienced this when I started composing. For starters I wasted no time on research but enthusiastically flung myself on to the first manuscript page, bibles open looking for texts to set. Which version appealed to me most? The Good News Bible? The Revised Standard Bible? The New International Version? The New King James? The King James Version? We had many translations in our home, John was a theologian.
I scored about fifty texts and then wrote to publishers asking permission to use their translation. One by one the answer came back: a resounding No! One publisher suggested I try the King James Version because it is in the Public Domain. Public Domain? It sounded like a people’s park. But it simply meant that the KJV was published before copyright and could therefore be used- even as far as repeating phrases in a text, modernizing words, moving words around within a phrase, etc, Wonderful! Except all my hard work had to be scrapped and redone, KJV style.
As the English language puts it so succinctly, you live and you learn.
