King James Bible 2016

New Testament



1:1The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
1:2As it is written in the prophets: "Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who will prepare Your way before You."
1:3"The voice of one shouting in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the LORD; make His paths straight.'"
1:4John came baptizing in the wilderness, and preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.
1:5And all the land of Judea, and those from Jerusalem, went out to him and were all baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins.
1:6Now John was clothed with camel's hair and a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey.
1:7And he preached, saying, "He who comes after me is mightier than me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to stoop down and loose.
1:8I indeed have baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
1:9And it came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
1:10And immediately, coming up from the water, He saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit descending upon Him like a dove.
1:11And there came a voice from heaven, saying, "You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
1:12And immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness.
1:13And He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to Him.
1:14Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
1:15and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe the gospel."
1:16Now as He walked by the sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea; because they were fishermen.
1:17And Jesus said to them, "Follow after Me, and I will make you become fishers of men."
1:18And immediately they left their nets and followed Him.
1:19And when He had gone a little farther from there, He saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the boat mending their nets.
1:20And immediately He called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went after Him.
1:21Then they went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath day He entered into the synagogue and taught.
1:22And they were astonished at His doctrine, because, He taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.
1:23Now there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit. And he shouted out,
1:24saying, "Leave us alone! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are, the Holy One of God!"
1:25But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be quiet, and come out of him!"
1:26And when the unclean spirit had convulsed him and shouted with a loud voice, he came out of him.
1:27Then they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, "What is this? What new doctrine is this? Because, with authority He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him."
1:28And immediately His fame spread throughout all the region around Galilee.
1:29Now as soon as they had come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
1:30But Simon's wife's mother lay sick with a fever, and they quickly told Him about her.
1:31So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the fever left her. And she ministered to them.
1:32And at evening, when the sun had set, they brought to Him all who were sick and those who were demon possessed.
1:33And the entire city was gathered together at the door.
1:34And He healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He did not permit the demons to speak, because they knew Him.
1:35Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to an isolated place, and prayed there.
1:36And Simon and those who were with Him searched for Him.
1:37And when they had found Him, they said to Him, "Everyone is looking for You."
1:38And He said to them, "Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there as well, because for this purpose I have come forth."
1:39And He preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out demons.
1:40Now a leper came to Him, begging Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, "If You are willing, You can make me clean."
1:41Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand, and touched him, and said to him, "I am willing; be cleansed."
1:42And as soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed.
1:43And He strictly warned him and immediately sent him away,
1:44and said to him, "See that you say nothing to anyone; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing those things which Moses commanded, as a testimony to them."
1:45However, he went out and began to proclaim it freely, and to spread the matter abroad, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter into the city, but was outside in deserted places; and they came to Him from every direction.

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.
