Textus Receptus Bibles

King James Bible 2016

New Testament



5:1Because, we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
5:2Because, in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven,
5:3if indeed, having been clothed, we will not be found naked.
5:4Because, we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life.
5:5Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given to us the Spirit as a guarantee.
5:6Therefore we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord.
5:7Because we walk by faith, not by sight.
5:8We are confident, I proclaim, and willing rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
5:9Therefore we labor, so that whether present or absent, we may be accepted of Him.
5:10Because, we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether it is good or bad.
5:11Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest to God, and I also trust are made manifest in your consciences.
5:12Because, we do not commend ourselves again to you, but give you opportunity to boast on our behalf, that you may have something to answer them who boast in appearance and not in heart.
5:13Because, if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; or if we are sober, it is for you.
5:14Because, the love of Christ compels us, because we have judged thus: that if One died for all, then all died;
5:15and that He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
5:16Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet from now on we know Him like this no longer.
5:17Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
5:18Now all these things are from God, who has reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation,
5:19that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
5:20Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading to you through us: we urge you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God.
5:21Because, He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
King James Bible 2016

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.
