Textus Receptus Bibles
King James Bible 2016
|13:1||This is the third time I am coming to you. "By the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established."|
|13:2||I have told you before, and foretell you, as if I were present the second time, and now being absent I write to those who have sinned already, and to all the rest, that if I come again I will not spare|
|13:3||since you seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, who is not weak toward you, but mighty in you.|
|13:4||Because, though He was crucified in weakness, yet He lives by the power of God. Because, we also are weak in Him, but we will live with Him by the power of God toward you.|
|13:5||Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? Unless indeed you are reprobates.|
|13:6||But I trust that you shall know that we are not reprobates.|
|13:7||Now I pray to God that you do no evil, not that we should appear approved, but that you should do what is honest, even though we are as reprobates.|
|13:8||Because, we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.|
|13:9||Because, we are glad when we are weak and you are strong. And this also we desire, even your perfection.|
|13:10||Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the authority which the Lord has given me for edification and not for destruction.|
|13:11||Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.|
|13:12||Greet one another with a holy kiss.|
|13:13||All the saints greet you.|
|13:14||The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 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.
