King James Bible 2016

New Testament



4:1I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, urge you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called,
4:2with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love,
4:3endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4:4There is one body and one Spirit, just as you are called in one hope of your calling;
4:5one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
4:6one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
4:7But to each one of us grace is given according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
4:8Therefore He says: "When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men."
4:9(Now this, "He ascended," what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth?
4:10He who descended is also the same who ascended up far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.)
4:11And He gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
4:12for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
4:13until we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
4:14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, and cunning craftiness, in which they make plans to deceive,
4:15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head, who is Christ,
4:16from whom the entire body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
4:17This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
4:18having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart;
4:19who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to filthiness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
4:20But you have not so learned Christ,
4:21if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus:
4:22that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which is corrupted according to the deceitful lusts,
4:23and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
4:24and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in righteousness and true holiness.
4:25Therefore, putting away lying, "every one speak truth with his neighbor," because we are members of one another.
4:26"Be angry, and do not sin": do not let the sun go down on your wrath,
4:27nor give place to the devil.
4:28Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands that which is good, that he may have something to give him who has need.
4:29Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may minister grace to the hearers.
4:30And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
4:31Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.
4:32And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God forgave you because of 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.
