The Baha'i writings are all translated into the biblical style of old english. Now, It would be possible to translate ANYTHING into old english and make it appear majestic etc. My query is simply:

Were the orignal baha'i scriptures that elequently written? And is there really any justification in using that style of old english in translating, which some people find hard to read.. Im not suggesting that 'modern' english be used.. Perhaps normal dictionary english would be more sincere though?
