Textus Receptus Bibles
King James Bible 2016
|6:1||Children, obey your parents in the Lord, because this is right.|
|6:2||"Honor your father and mother," which is the first commandment with promise:|
|6:3||"that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth."|
|6:4||And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.|
|6:5||Servants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with reverence and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ;|
|6:6||not with eye service, as men pleasers, but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart,|
|6:7||with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men,|
|6:8||knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a servant or free.|
|6:9||And you, masters, do the same things to them, giving up threatening, knowing that your own Master also is in heaven, and there is no personal favoritism with Him.|
|6:10||Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.|
|6:11||Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.|
|6:12||Because, we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenly places.|
|6:13||Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand.|
|6:14||Stand therefore, having wrapped your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,|
|6:15||and shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;|
|6:16||above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.|
|6:17||And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;|
|6:18||praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints;|
|6:19||and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel,|
|6:20||for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.|
|6:21||But that you also may know my affairs and how I am doing, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, will make all things known to you;|
|6:22||whom I have sent to you for this very purpose, that you may know our affairs, and that he may comfort your hearts.|
|6:23||Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.|
|6:24||Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.|
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.
