King James Bible 2016

New Testament



3:1"And to the angel of the church in Sardis write, 'These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: "I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead."
3:2Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are about to die, because I have not found your works perfect before God."
3:3Remember therefore how you have received and heard; and hold firmly and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you."
3:4You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they will walk with Me in white, because they are worthy."
3:5He who overcomes, these will be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels."
3:6"He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."'
3:7"And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, 'These things says He who is holy, He who is true, "He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens":
3:8"I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; because, you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name."
3:9Behold, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but do lie, behold, I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you."
3:10Because you have kept My word to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial that will come upon the entire world, to test those who dwell on the earth."
3:11Behold, I am coming suddenly! Hold firmly to what you have, that no one may take your crown."
3:12He who overcomes, I will make a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will go out no more. And I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, which is New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name."
3:13"He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."'
3:14"And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, 'These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the beginning of the creation of God:"
3:15"I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were cold or hot."
3:16So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth."
3:17Because you say, 'I am rich, am increased with possessions, and have need of nothing,' but do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked;"
3:18I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white clothing, that you may be clothed, so that the shame of your nakedness does not appear; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see."
3:19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent."
3:20Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me."
3:21To him that overcomes will I allow to sit with Me on My throne, just as I also overcame and have sat down with My Father on His throne."
3:22He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."'"

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.
