Have You Ever Been To A “Hath A” Meeting?

Have You Ever Been To A “Hath A” Meeting? The phrase “hath a” is from The King James Version (KJV) of the Bible (also known as the Authorized Version). This version is now more than 400 years old and the English language has changed drastically in that time. We no longer use words like “ye” or “hath” or “thee” or “thou” or “thy.” Yet the truth and beauty of the King James Bible hasn’t changed.

I read various versions. However, I like one of my favorite verses in King James English. It reads: “When ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation.” (I Corinthians 14:26, KJV). That’s a “hath a” meeting!

As far as I can find, this is the only place in the New Testament that specifically instructs Christians on what to do when we have a meeting. It says “every one of you hath a . . .,” meaning that everybody gathered in the meeting has something to share.

So since the Bible clearly instructs us on how to meet together, I wonder why are “hath a” meetings so rare? They are very difficult to find.
