Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
Occuring 90 times in the King James Bible, the term which is translated to “holy spirit” in most other English translations is translated as “holy ghost” in the KJV. When the KJV was originally translated in 1611, the word “ghost” in English primarily referred to “an immaterial being”. As English evolved, and “ghost” came to mean “the spirit of a deceased person”, newer translations used the term “holy spirit” instead. The King James Version is the only major English translation in which the term “holy ghost” appears (hence the “unlike newer Bibles” part of the clue).
