King James Bible 2016

New Testament



2:1Because, I want you to know what a great conflict I have for you and for those in Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh,
2:2that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all the riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ,
2:3in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
2:4Now this I say lest anyone should deceive you with persuasive words.
2:5Because, though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in the spirit, rejoicing to see your order and the firmness of your faith in Christ.
2:6Therefore, as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,
2:7rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
2:8Beware lest anyone rob you through philosophy and vain deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.
2:9Because, in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;
2:10and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
2:11In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,
2:12buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through the faith of the working of God, who has raised Him from the dead.
2:13And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,
2:14having erased the written record of commands that were against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to the cross.
2:15Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
2:16Therefore let no man judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days,
2:17which are a shadow of things to come, but the body is of Christ.
2:18Let no one rob you of your reward, delighting in false humility and worship of angels, meddling into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
2:19And not clinging to the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, increases with the increase from God.
2:20Therefore, if you are dead with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, are you subject to regulations,
2:21("Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,"
2:22which all concern things which perish with the using) according to the commandments and doctrines of men?
2:23These things certainly have an appearance of wisdom in self imposed worship and humility, and neglecting of the body, but have no value against the indulgence of the flesh.

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.
