The Apostle Peter quoted an Old Testament prophet in Acts 2.16, "No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:" Later Peter also added what David had said about the Lord in Acts 2.25, "David said about him: 'I saw the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken." One minister, The Rev. James King, often paraphrased a Biblical passage in his preaching instead of quoting the King James version. Then he smiled and said, "That's the James King version."
