King James Bible 2016

New Testament



8:1Moreover, brethren, we make known to you the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia:
8:2how that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their extreme poverty abounded in the riches of their liberality.
8:3Because, I bear record that according to their ability, yes, and beyond their ability, they were freely willing,
8:4urging us with many requests that we would receive the gift and take on us the fellowship of the ministering to the saints.
8:5And this they did, not just as we hoped, but they first gave themselves to the Lord, and then to us by the will of God.
8:6So that we urged Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also complete this grace in you also.
8:7Therefore, as you abound in everything, in faith, in speech, in knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love for us, see that you abound in this grace also.
8:8I speak not by commandment, but I am testing the sincerity of your love by the diligence of others.
8:9Because, you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might be rich.
8:10And in this I give my advice: It is to your advantage not only to be doing what you began and were desiring to do a year ago;
8:11but now you also must complete the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to desire it, so there also may be a completion out of what you have.
8:12Because, if there is first a willing mind, it is accepted according to what one has, and not according to what he does not have.
8:13Because, I do not mean that others should be eased and you burdened;
8:14but by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their lack, that their abundance also may be a supply for your lack, that there may be equality.
8:15As it is written, "He who gathered much had nothing left over, and he who gathered little had no lack."
8:16But thanks be to God who put the same earnest care for you into the heart of Titus.
8:17Because, he not only accepted the exhortation, but being more diligent, he went to you of his own accord.
8:18And we have sent with him the brother whose praise is in the gospel throughout all the churches,
8:19and not only that, but who was also chosen by the churches to travel with us with this grace, which is administered by us to the glory of the Lord Himself and to show your ready mind,
8:20avoiding this: that anyone should blame us in this abundance which is administered by us,
8:21providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.
8:22And we have sent with them our brother whom we have often proved diligent in many things, but now much more diligent, because of the great confidence which I have in you.
8:23If anyone inquires about Titus, he is my partner and fellow worker concerning you. Or if our brethren are inquired about, they are messengers of the churches, and the glory of Christ.
8:24Therefore show to them, and before the churches, the proof of your love and of our boasting on your behalf.

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.
