King James Bible 2016

New Testament



4:1And again He began to teach by the sea side. And a large crowd was gathered to Him, so that He got into a boat and sat in it on the sea. Then the entire crowd was by the sea on the land.
4:2Then He taught them many things by parables, and said to them in His doctrine:
4:3"Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow."
4:4And it happened, as he sowed, some fell by the wayside, and the birds of the air came and devoured it."
4:5And some fell on stony ground, where it did not have much earth; and immediately it sprang up because it had no depth of earth."
4:6But when the sun was up it was scorched, and because it had no root it withered away."
4:7And some fell among thorns; and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no fruit."
4:8But the other fell on good ground, and yielded fruit that sprang up, increased, and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred."
4:9And He said to them, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
4:10But when He was alone, those around Him with the twelve asked Him about the parable.
4:11And He said to them, "To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all these things come in parables,"
4:12so that 'Seeing they may see and not perceive, and hearing they may hear and not understand; lest they should be converted at any time, and their sins be forgiven them.'"
4:13And He said to them, "Do you not understand this parable? How then shall you understand all the parables?"
4:14The sower sows the word."
4:15And these are those by the wayside where the word is sown. But when they have heard, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts."
4:16And likewise these are those which are sown on stony ground who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;"
4:17but they have no root in themselves, and so endure only for a time. Afterward, when affliction or persecution arises for the word's sake, immediately they stumble."
4:18Now these are the ones sown among thorns; those who hear the word,"
4:19but the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful."
4:20But these are they which are sown on good ground, those who hear the word, receive it, and bear fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred."
4:21And He said to them, "Is a lamp brought to be put under a basket or under a bed? Is it not to be set on a lampstand?"
4:22Because, there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light."
4:23If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear."
4:24Then He said to them, "Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given."
4:25Because, whoever has, to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him."
4:26And He said, "The kingdom of God is like as if a man should scatter seed on the ground,"
4:27and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how."
4:28Because, the earth yields crops from itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head."
4:29So when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come."
4:30Then He said, "To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? Or with what comparison shall we compare it?"
4:31It is like a grain of mustard seed which, when it is sown on the ground, is smaller than all the seeds that are in the earth;"
4:32but when it is sown, it grows up and becomes greater than all herbs, and shoots out large branches, so that the birds of the air may nest under its shade."
4:33And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.
4:34But He did not speak to them without a parable. And when they were alone, He expounded all things to His disciples.
4:35And the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, "Let us cross over to the other side."
4:36Now when they had sent the crowd away, they took Him in the boat just as He was. And there were also with Him other little boats.
4:37And a large windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already full.
4:38But He was in the back of the boat, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?"
4:39Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.
4:40But He said to them, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?"
4:41And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, "What type of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!"

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.
