King James Bible 2016

New Testament



2:1But I determined this within myself, that I would not come again to you in sorrow.
2:2Because, if I make you sorrowful, then who is he who makes me glad but the one who is made sorrowful by me?
2:3And I wrote this very thing to you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow from those of whom I ought to rejoice, having confidence in you all that my joy is the joy of you all.
2:4Because, out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to you, with many tears, not that you should be grieved, but that you might know the love which I have so abundantly for you.
2:5But if anyone has caused grief, he has not grieved me, except partially; so that I may not be harsh to you all.
2:6This punishment which was inflicted by many is sufficient for such a man,
2:7so that, on the contrary, you ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with too much sorrow.
2:8Therefore I urge you to reaffirm your love to him.
2:9Because, this is why I also wrote, that I might put you to the test, whether you are obedient in all things.
2:10To whom you forgive anything, I also forgive. Because, if I have forgiven anything, to whom I forgive it, I have forgiven it for your sakes in the person of Christ,
2:11lest Satan should get a favorable position over us; because we are not ignorant of his devices.
2:12Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ's gospel, and a door was opened to me by the Lord,
2:13I had no rest in my spirit, because I did not find Titus my brother; but taking my leave of them, I departed from there into Macedonia.
2:14Now thanks be to God who always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the fragrance of His knowledge in every place through us.
2:15Because, we are to God the sweet fragrance of Christ among those who are saved and among those who are perishing.
2:16To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?
2:17Because, we are not, like so many, who corrupt the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ.

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.
