New Testament

 

   

3:1Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,
3:2Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came to John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.
3:3And he went into all the region around Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins,
3:4as it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying: "The voice of one shouting in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the LORD; make His paths straight.
3:5Every valley will be filled and every mountain and hill will be brought low; and the crooked place will be made straight and the rough ways will be made smooth;
3:6And all flesh will see the salvation of God.'"
3:7Then he said to the crowds that came out to be baptized by him, "O generation of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
3:8Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, and do not begin to say within yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' Because I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.
3:9And even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire."
3:10So the people asked him, saying, "What shall we do then?"
3:11He answered and said to them, "He who has two coats, let him give to him who has none; and he who has food, let him do likewise."
3:12Then tax collectors also came to be baptized, and said to him, "Teacher, what shall we do?"
3:13And he said to them, "Collect no more than that which is appointed to you."
3:14Likewise the soldiers demanded of him, saying, "And what shall we do?" So he said to them, "Do not be violent to anyone, nor accuse anyone falsely, and be content with your wages."
3:15Now as the people were in expectation, and everyone reasoned in their hearts about John, whether he was the Christ or not,
3:16John responded, saying to them all, "I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.
3:17His winnowing fan is in His hand and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into His storehouse; but the chaff He will burn with unquenchable fire."
3:18And with many other things in His exhortation he preached to the people.
3:19But Herod the tetrarch, being rebuked by him concerning Herodias, his brother Philip's wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done,
3:20also added this, above all, that he shut up John in prison.
3:21Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass that Jesus was baptized also; and while praying, the heaven was opened.
3:22And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, "You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased."
3:23So Jesus Himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, who was the son of Heli,
3:24who was the son of Matthat, who was the son of Levi, who was the son of Melchi, who was the son of Janna, who was the son of Joseph,
3:25who was the son of Mattathiah, who was the son of Amos, who was the son of Nahum, who was the son of Esli, who was the son of Naggai,
3:26who was the son of Maath, who was the son of Mattathiah, who was the son of Semei, who was the son of Joseph, who was the son of Judah,
3:27who was the son of Joannas, who was the son of Rhesa, who was the son of Zerubbabel, who was the son of Shealtiel, who was the son of Neri,
3:28who was the son of Melchi, who was the son of Addi, who was the son of Cosam, who was the son of Elmodam, who was the son of Er,
3:29who was the son of Jose, who was the son of Eliezer, who was the son of Jorim, who was the son of Matthat, who was the son of Levi,
3:30who was the son of Simeon, who was the son of Judah, who was the son of Joseph, who was the son of Jonan, who was the son of Eliakim,
3:31who was the son of Melea, who was the son of Menan, who was the son of Mattathah, who was the son of Nathan, who was the son of David,
3:32who was the son of Jesse, who was the son of Obed, who was the son of Boaz, who was the son of Salmon, who was the son of Nahshon,
3:33who was the son of Amminadab, who was the son of Ram, who was the son of Hezron, who was the son of Perez, who was the son of Judah,
3:34who was the son of Jacob, who was the son of Isaac, who was the son of Abraham, who was the son of Terah, who was the son of Nahor,
3:35who was the son of Serug, who was the son of Reu, who was the son of Peleg, who was the son of Eber, who was the son of Shelah,
3:36who was the son of Cainan, who was the son of Arphaxad, who was the son of Shem, who was the son of Noah, who was the son of Lamech,
3:37who was the son of Methuselah, who was the son of Enoch, who was the son of Jared, who was the son of Mahalalel, who was the son of Cainan,
3:38who was the son of Enosh, who was the son of Seth, who was the son of Adam, who was the son of God.
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.
