King James Bible 2016

New Testament



1:1Paul and Timothy, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:
1:2Grace be to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
1:3I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,
1:4always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy,
1:5for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now,
1:6being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;
1:7just as it is right for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart, inasmuch as both in my chains and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers of my grace.
1:8Because, God is my witness, how greatly I long for you all with the affection of Jesus Christ.
1:9And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and in all discernment,
1:10that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense until the day of Christ,
1:11being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
1:12But I want you to understand, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel,
1:13so that it has become evident to the entire palace, and to every other place, that my chains are in Christ;
1:14and most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.
1:15Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife, and some also from goodwill:
1:16The former preach Christ from contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my chains;
1:17but the other out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel.
1:18What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is preached; and in this I rejoice, yes, and will rejoice.
1:19Because, I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
1:20according to my earnest expectation and my hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether it be by life or by death.
1:21Because to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
1:22But if I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my labor; yet what I shall choose I do not know.
1:23Because, I am hard pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better.
1:24Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.
1:25And being confident of this, I know that I will abide and continue with you all for your progress and joy of faith,
1:26that your rejoicing for me may be more abundant in Jesus Christ by my coming to you again.
1:27Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel,
1:28and not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that from God.
1:29Because, to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe on Him, but also to suffer for His sake,
1:30having the same conflict which you saw in me and now hear is in me.

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.
