King James Bible 2016

New Testament



1:1Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,
1:2To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ who are at Colosse: Grace be to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
1:3We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, always praying for you,
1:4since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of your love for all the saints;
1:5because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel,
1:6which has come to you, as it has also in all the world, and is bearing fruit, as it is also among you since the day you heard about it, and knew the grace of God in truth;
1:7as you also learned from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf,
1:8who also declared to us your love in the Spirit.
1:9For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
1:10that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;
1:11strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy;
1:12giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers in the inheritance of the saints in the light,
1:13who has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of His beloved Son,
1:14in whom we have redemption through His blood even the forgiveness of sins.
1:15He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
1:16Because, all things were created by Him that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether they are thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created by Him and for Him.
1:17And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.
1:18And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.
1:19Because, it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell,
1:20and by Him, having made peace through the blood of His cross, to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven.
1:21And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled
1:22in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight,
1:23if you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, and which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.
1:24I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church,
1:25of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God,
1:26even the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints.
1:27To them God desired to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
1:28Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.
1:29To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.

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.
