BEGAT: David Crystal

Here are just a few of the idioms and expressions still in use today from the KJB:

- turned the world upside down
- from the mouths of babes
- go the second mile
- God forbid
- take root
- the powers that be
- filthy lucre
- no peace for the wicked
- a fly in the ointment
- feet of clay
- a thorn in the flesh
- the skin of the teeth
- my brother's keeper
- fight the good fight
- nothing new under the sun
In his new book, Begat, David Crystal asks the question why a book published four hundred years ago should continue to have such a profound influence on our language. What he finds is often surprising.
