Ye Olde Slang And Martin Luther Raps About The 95 Theses

Here's some funny stuff for you:

The first humorous item comes from Robb Lawson, who I'd like to give a shout out to or is it an e-shout out. Thanks for the laughs, Robb! Anyways here is the humorous post that he wrote:
Proof that the AV/KJV uses Ebonics
May 24th, 2009 by Robb

The KJV proves that Ebonics has been in use since 1611.
1). “we be”
It is found 32 times in the KJV.
Example: Joh 8:33 They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
Rapper “50 Cent” (remember, his name is pronounced “Fiddie Cent” said in interview: “…
[W]e be alright you know.”

2). “ye be”
It is found 71 times in the KJV.
“Ye” is not used today, but it is the plural “you.”
Example: Gal 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Rapper “50 Cent” said in one of his songs 21 Questions: “If it was time to put in work would you be down to ride?
It is obvious he is using the plural “you.” I’m omitting a link to the lyrics because of his dirty mouth.

3). “you be”
It is found 15 times in the KJV.
“You be” is the singular form opposed to the plural form, “ye.”
Example: 1Co 4:6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.
Rapper “50 Cent” said in his song P.I.M.P: “That other ni**a you be with ain’t bout s**t.”

This is Robb Lawson reporting from Redneckville, Florida.
