King James Bible 2016

New Testament



18:1Now after these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory.
18:2And he shouted mightily with a loud voice, saying, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become the dwelling place for demons, and the prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hateful bird!
18:3Because all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury."
18:4And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, that you do not be partakers of her sins, and that you do not receive of her plagues.
18:5Because her sins have reached to heaven and God has remembered her iniquities.
18:6Repay her just as she paid you, and pay back to her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix to her double.
18:7In the measure that she glorified herself and lived lavishly, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; because she says in her heart, 'I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will see no sorrow.'
18:8Therefore her plagues will come in one day, death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, because mighty is the Lord God who judges her.
18:9"And the kings of the earth who have committed fornication and lived lavishly with her will weep for her, and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning,
18:10standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! Because in one hour your judgment has come.'
18:11And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their merchandise anymore:
18:12the merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, and every kind of citron wood, and every kind of object of ivory, and every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble;
18:13and cinnamon and incense, and fragrant oil and frankincense, grape juice and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, slaves and souls of men.
18:14And the fruits that your soul lusted after have departed from you, and all things which were dainty and splendid have departed from you, and you will not find them anymore.
18:15The merchants of these things who became rich by her, will stand at a distance because of the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
18:16and saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls!
18:17Because in one hour such great riches came to nothing.' And every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance
18:18and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, 'What city is like this great city!'
18:19And threw dust on their heads and shouted out, weeping and wailing, saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! Because in one hour she is made desolate.
18:20Rejoice over her, you heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, because God has avenged you on her!"
18:21Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a large millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, "Thus with violence will that great city Babylon be thrown down, and will not be found anymore.
18:22And the sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters will not be heard in you anymore. And no craftsman of any craft he is, will be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone will not be heard in you anymore.
18:23And the light of a lamp will not shine in you anymore, and the voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you anymore. Because, your merchants were the great men of the earth, because by your sorceries all the nations were deceived.
18:24And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and all who were slain on the earth. "
King James Bible 2016

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.
