New Testament

 

   

11:1And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished commanding His twelve disciples, that He departed from there to teach and to preach in their cities.
11:2Now when John had heard in the prison about the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples,
11:3And said to Him, "Are You He who should come, or do we look for another?"
11:4Jesus answered and said to them, "Go and show John again those things which you hear and see:"
11:5The blind receive their sight and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them."
11:6And blessed is he, who is not offended because of Me."
11:7And as they departed, Jesus began to say to the crowds concerning John: "What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind?"
11:8But what did you go out to see? A man clothed in fine clothing? Behold, those who wear fine clothing are in kings' houses."
11:9But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and more than a prophet."
11:10Because, this is he, of whom it is written: 'Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who will prepare Your way before You.'"
11:11"Truly I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than him."
11:12And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force."
11:13Because, all the prophets and the law prophesied until John."
11:14And if you are willing to receive it, this is Elijah who was to come beforehand."
11:15He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"
11:16But to what shall I liken this generation? It is likened to children sitting in the marketplaces, and calling to their friends,"
11:17and saying: 'We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we have mourned to you, and you did not lament.'"
11:18Because, John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon.'"
11:19The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Behold a gluttonous man, and a wine drinker, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' But wisdom is justified by her children."
11:20Then He began to rebuke the cities in which most of His mighty works had been done, because they did not repent:
11:21"Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! Because, if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes."
11:22But I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you."
11:23And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to hell; because, if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day."
11:24But I say to you that it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you."
11:25At that time Jesus responded and said, "I thank you, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them to babes."
11:26Even so Father, because in this manner it seemed good in Your sight."
11:27All things are delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son, except for the Father. Neither does anyone know the Father, except for the Son, and to the one whom the Son wills to reveal Him."
11:28Come to Me, all you who labor and have a heavy burden, and I will give you rest."
11:29Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, because, I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls."
11:30Because, My yoke is easy, and My burden is light."
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.
