Textus Receptus Bibles
King James Bible 2016
|4:1||Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.|
|4:2||And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry.|
|4:3||Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, "If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread."|
|4:4||But He replied and said, "It is written, 'Man will not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'"|
|4:5||Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, and set Him on a pinnacle of the temple,|
|4:6||and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. Because it is written: 'He will give His angels orders concerning You,' and, 'in their hands they will hold You up, lest at any time You strike Your foot against a stone.'"|
|4:7||Jesus said to him, "It is written again, 'You shall not tempt the LORD your God.'"|
|4:8||Again, the devil took Him up onto a very high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory.|
|4:9||And he said to Him, "I will give You all these things, if You will fall down and worship me."|
|4:10||Then Jesus said to Him, "Leave Satan! Because it is written, 'You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only shall you serve.'"|
|4:11||Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.|
|4:12||Now when Jesus had heard that John had been thrown into prison, He departed to Galilee.|
|4:13||And leaving Nazareth, He came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is by the sea coast, in the regions of Zebulun and Naphtali,|
|4:14||that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying:|
|4:15||"The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, by the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles:|
|4:16||The people who sat in darkness have seen a great Light, and upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned."|
|4:17||From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, "Repent, because the kingdom of heaven is at hand."|
|4:18||And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; because they were fishermen.|
|4:19||And He said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men."|
|4:20||And they immediately left their nets, and followed Him.|
|4:21||And going on from there, He saw two more brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets, and He called them.|
|4:22||And immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.|
|4:23||Then Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all types of sickness and every kind of disease among the people.|
|4:24||And His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him every sick person who was afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were possessed with demons, those who were insane, and paralytics; and He healed them.|
|4:25||And large crowds of people followed Him from Galilee, and from Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan.|
King James Bible 2016
Unlike most other modern versions, this Bible's text is based upon the same Hebrew Masoretic Text, and Greek Textus Receptus, of the King James Version of 1611.
In non Textus Receptus versions, the issue of having the best underlying manuscripts, is often overshadowed by the massive amount of omissions in the text. Because the KJV 2016 is not dealing with issues of omission and addition, the focus has been upon definition, and the KJV translators choices have been used as the benchmark.
One issue not often majored upon in the bible version debate is simply the way Greek words are defined. Many times, the NKJV leans upon the definition choices of modern versions as well as defaulting to Vines and Strong's definitions, which are almost always favorable to the Revised Version. In other words, one may have a correct text to translate from, but use erroneous modern version/modern dictionary definitions which change or distort the meaning of the words. Jay Green was accused of having a good TR bible but with "Alexandrian readings".
The KJV 2016 Edition rejects such erroneous modern definitions and restores the distinctness of historical KJV readings. The NKJV also tended to gravitate toward KJV marginal notes, which are in truth, rejected readings, and also toward Geneva Bible definitions, which the KJV had already cleared up.
