New Testament

 

   

23:1Then Jesus spoke to the crowd and to His disciples,
23:2saying: "The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat."
23:3Everything then, whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; because they preach, and do not practice."
23:4Because, they bind heavy burdens, hard to carry, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers."
23:5But they do their works to be seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad and enlarge the edges of their garments."
23:6They love the best places at feasts, the first seats in the synagogues,"
23:7greetings in the markets, and to be called by men, 'Rabbi, Rabbi.'"
23:8But you, do not be called 'Rabbi'; because, One is your Teacher, that is, Christ, and you are all brethren."
23:9And do not call anyone on earth your father; because One is your Father, who is in heaven."
23:10Nor be called teachers; because One is your Teacher, that is, Christ."
23:11But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant."
23:12And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
23:13"But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because, you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; because you neither go in yourselves, nor do you permit those who are entering to go in."
23:14Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because, you devour widows' houses, and for a show make long prayers. Therefore you will receive the greater damnation."
23:15Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because, you travel land and sea to make one proselyte, and when he is converted, you make him twice as much the child of hell as yourselves."
23:16"Woe to you, you blind guides, who say, 'Whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple, he is obligated!'"
23:17You fools and blind! Because which is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifies the gold?"
23:18And, 'Whoever swears by the altar, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gift that is on it, he is obligated.'"
23:19You fools and blind! Because which is greater, the gift or the altar that sanctifies the gift?"
23:20Therefore whoever swears by the altar, swears by it and by all things on it."
23:21And whoever swears by the temple, swears by it, and by Him who dwells in it."
23:22And he who swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God and by Him who sits upon it."
23:23Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because, you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law: judgment, mercy, and faith. You should have done these, without leaving the others undone."
23:24You blind guides, who strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel!"
23:25"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because, you clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and excess."
23:26You blind Pharisee, first cleanse that which is inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also."
23:27"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because, you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness."
23:28Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity."
23:29"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because, you build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the tombs of the righteous,"
23:30and say, 'If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.'"
23:31"Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are the children of those who killed the prophets."
23:32Fill up then the measure of your fathers."
23:33You serpents, you children of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell?"
23:34Therefore, behold, I send to you prophets, wise men, and scribes: and some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city,"
23:35that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar."
23:36Truly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation."
23:37"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kills the prophets, and stone those who are sent to you! How often I wanted to gather your children together, just as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!"
23:38Behold! Your house is left to you desolate;"
23:39because, I say to you, You will see me no more until you shall say, 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD.'"
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.
