King James Bible 2016

New Testament



4:1After these things I looked, and behold, a door was opened in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was as it was of a trumpet speaking with me, which said, "Come up here, and I will show you things that must be after this."
4:2And immediately I was in the spirit; and behold, a throne was set in heaven, and One sat on the throne.
4:3And He who sat there looked like a jasper and a sardine stone; and there was a rainbow around about the throne, which looked like an emerald.
4:4And around the throne were twenty four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty four elders sitting, clothed in white clothing; and they had golden crowns on their heads.
4:5And lightnings, thunderings, and voices proceeded from the throne. And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
4:6And before the throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four creatures full of eyes in the front and the back.
4:7And the first creature was like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face like a man, and the fourth creature was like a flying eagle.
4:8And the four creatures, each of them having six wings around him, also were full of eyes inside. And they do not rest day or night, saying: "Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was, and is and is to come!"
4:9And whenever the creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever,
4:10the twenty four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and throw their crowns before the throne, saying:
4:11"You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; because, You have created all things, and for Your pleasure they are and were created."

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.
