King James Bible 2016

New Testament



4:1Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a servant, though he is master of all,
4:2but is under instructors and stewards until the time appointed by the father.
4:3Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world.
4:4But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law,
4:5to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
4:6And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, "Abba, Father!"
4:7Therefore you are no longer a servant but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
4:8But then, indeed, when you did not know God, you served those which by nature are not gods.
4:9But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage?
4:10You observe days and months and seasons and years.
4:11I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain.
4:12Brethren, I urge you to be as I am, because I am as you are. You have not injured me at all.
4:13You know that because of physical weakness I preached the gospel to you at the first.
4:14And my trial which was in my flesh you did not despise or reject, but you received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus.
4:15What then was the blessing you spoke of? Because, I bear you witness that, if possible, you would have plucked out your own eyes and given them to me.
4:16Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?
4:17They are zealous for you, but for no good; yes, they want to exclude you, that you may be zealous for them.
4:18But it is good to be zealous in a good thing always, and not only when I am present with you.
4:19My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you,
4:20I desire to be present with you now and to change my tone; because I stand in doubt concerning you.
4:21Tell me, you who desire to be under the law, do you not hear the law?
4:22Because, it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman.
4:23But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman was by promise,
4:24which things are an allegory. Because, these are the two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar.
4:25Because, this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
4:26But the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.
4:27Because, it is written: "Rejoice, you barren, you who do not bear! Break forth and cry, you who are not in labor! Because, the desolate has many more children than she who has a husband."
4:28Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise.
4:29But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now.
4:30Nevertheless what does the Scripture say? "Cast out the bondwoman and her son, because, the son of the bondwoman will not be heir with the son of the freewoman."
4:31So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman but of the free.

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.
