King James Bible 2016
|Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. For me to write the same things to you is not tedious, but for you it is safe.
|Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation!
|Because, we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh,
|though I also might have confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he may have confidence in the flesh, I more so:
|circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the law, a Pharisee;
|concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
|But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.
|Yet indeed I also count all things as loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as manure, that I may gain Christ
|and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;
|that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,
|if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
|Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may apprehend that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.
|Brethren, I do not count myself to have attained; but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,
|I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
|Therefore let us, as many as are perfect, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you.
|Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind.
|Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for an example.
|Because many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:
|whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.
|Because, our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
|who will transform our vile body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.
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.
