Miller was active in church planting ministries for twenty-one years in New England before moving to England to do missionary work for an additional eleven years. He also taught in the public-school systems of Vermont, New York, Massachusetts and Florida, as well as serving as Professor of Bible, History, Greek and Hebrew in Bible Colleges in Vermont and Florida.
Miller produced a translation of Isiah from the Hebrew of the Qumran Dead Sea Scrolls (The Great Isaiah Scroll, 1997) and also one from the Masoretic text (1997)
In 1999 Miller produced a Revised KJV, which was originally available only on CD, then eventually in hard copy.
Some of its renderings are “God Said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him”
And “His fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought to him all sick people who were taken with different diseases and torments, and those who were possessed with devils, and those who were lunatic, and those who had the palsy; and he healed them”.
Most changes consist of updating English usage, such as “who” for “which,” etc.
