King James Bible 2016

New Testament



21:1Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, because the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.
21:2Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
21:3And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they will be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.
21:4And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there will be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying, neither will there be any more pain, because the former things have passed away."
21:5Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." And He said to me, "Write, because these words are true and faithful."
21:6And He said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.
21:7He who overcomes will inherit all things, and I will be his God and he will be My son.
21:8But the fearful, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars will have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."
21:9Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, "Come here, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife."
21:10And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
21:11having the glory of God. And her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
21:12And had a large and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
21:13three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.
21:14Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
21:15And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall.
21:16And the city is laid out as a square; and its length is as large as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand stadiums. Its length, breadth, and height are equal.
21:17Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
21:18And the construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.
21:19And the foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,
21:20the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.
21:21And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, just like transparent glass.
21:22But I saw no temple in it, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.
21:23The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, because the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.
21:24And the nations of those who are saved will walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.
21:25And its gates will not be shut at all by day, because there will be no night there.
21:26And they will bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it.
21:27But there will by no means enter into it anything that defiles, nor anything that causes an abomination or makes a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

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.
