    old to modern English

    King James version:
    (Acts 4:12)Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is no other name under heaven, given among men, whereby we must be saved.{name - Jesus}

    My own versions:
    - There is no other way that a man might be saved for there is only one name from heaven given for men to be saved.

    - There is no other way that a man might be saved for men are only given one name from heaven for their salvation.

    - Heaven has given men only one name that could save them.

    - There is only one name that could save men and that name is Jesus.

    - A name? Don't you know that there is only name that could save you? It's the name of Jesus.

    *** Please check my versions***

    This is a nice paraphrase, and sounds very modern:

    A name? Don't you know that there is only one name that can save you? It's the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

    This one is also neat, though more formal

    There is only one name that can save men and that name is Jesus.
