King James Bible 2016

New Testament



4:1Masters, give to your servants that which is just and balanced, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven.
4:2Continue in prayer, and watch in it with thanksgiving;
4:3meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains,
4:4that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
4:5Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time.
4:6Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
4:7Tychicus, who is a beloved brother, a faithful minister and fellow servant in the Lord, will tell you about my state of affairs
4:8whom I have sent to you for the same purpose, that he might know your circumstances, and comfort your hearts,
4:9with Onesimus, a faithful and beloved brother, who is one of you. They will make known to you all things that are happening here.
4:10Aristarchus my fellow prisoner greets you, with Mark, the sister's son of Barnabas, (about whom you received instructions: if he comes to you, receive him),
4:11and Jesus, who is called Justus, who are of the circumcision. These are my only fellow workers for the kingdom of God who have proven to be a comfort to me.
4:12Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, greets you, always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.
4:13Because, I bear him record, that he has a great zeal for you, and those who are in Laodicea, and those in Hierapolis.
4:14Luke, the beloved physician and Demas greet you.
4:15Greet the brethren who are in Laodicea, and Nymphas, and the church that is in his house.
4:16Now when this letter is read among you, see that it is read in the church of the Laodiceans also, and that you likewise read the letter from Laodicea.
4:17And say to Archippus, "Take heed to the ministry that you have received in the Lord, that you fulfill it."
4:18The salutation of Paul, by my own hand. Remember my chains. Grace be with you. Amen.

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.
