Good grief. Even if true [you have a signed copy of the original?] it is
still a bad translation. In the Greek "received text" (again there are
other texts) which it is claimed in the preface to the KJVas being the
source, Jesus is reported (in Greek) as having said, "Whoever has ears
to hear - listen!" and not, as in the KJV, "He that hath ears to hear,
etc." The original is not gender specific, the KJV is. This is, without
doubt, a mistranslation. Study your subject, please, before making
unsubstantiated claims.
