King James Bible 2016

New Testament



9:1Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fall from heaven to the earth. And to him was given the key to the bottomless pit.
9:2And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit, like the smoke of a large furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit.
9:3Then out of the smoke came locusts upon the earth. And to them was given authority, as the scorpions of the earth have authority.
9:4And they were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God in their foreheads.
9:5And they were not given permission to kill them, but that they should be tormented for five months. And their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.
9:6And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; and will desire to die, and death will flee from them.
9:7And the shape of the locusts were like horses prepared for battle. And on their heads were like crowns of gold, and their faces were like the faces of men.
9:8And they had hair like women's hair, and their teeth were like lions' teeth.
9:9And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running to battle.
9:10And they had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. And their power was to hurt men five months.
9:11And they had a king over them, who is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew language is Abaddon, but in the Greek language his name is Apollyon.
9:12One woe is past, and behold, still two more woes are coming after this.
9:13Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
9:14saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, "Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates."
9:15So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill the third of mankind.
9:16Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; and I heard the number of them.
9:17And thus I saw the horses in the vision: So those who sat on them had breastplates of fire, and sapphire, and sulfur; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone.
9:18By these three a third part of mankind was killed, by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths.
9:19Because, their power is in their mouth and in their tails; because their tails were like serpents, having heads; and with them they do harm.
9:20But the rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues, yet did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, and silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk;
9:21neither did they repent of their murders or of their sorceries or of their sexual immorality or of their thefts.

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.
