New Testament

 

   

10:1There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the regiment called the Italian Regiment,
10:2a devout man and one who reverenced God with all his household, who gave many charitable gifts to the people, and prayed to God always.
10:3About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God coming in to him, and saying to him, "Cornelius!"
10:4And when he looked at him, he was afraid, and said, "What is it, Lord?" So he said to him, "Your prayers and your charitable gifts have come up as a memorial before God.
10:5And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon whose surname is Peter.
10:6He is lodging with Simon, a tanner, whose house is beside the sea. He will tell you what you must do."
10:7And when the angel who spoke to him had departed, Cornelius called two of his household servants and a devout soldier from among those who waited on him continually.
10:8So when he had explained all these things to them, he sent them to Joppa.
10:9On the next day, as they went on their journey and drew near the city, Peter went up on the housetop to pray, about the sixth hour.
10:10Then he became very hungry and wanted to eat; but while they were preparing, he fell into a trance
10:11and saw heaven opened and a certain object just like a great sheet bound at the four corners, descending to him and let down to the earth.
10:12In it were all kinds of four footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, creeping things, and birds of the air.
10:13And a voice came to him, "Rise, Peter; kill and eat."
10:14But Peter said, "Not so, Lord! Because I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean."
10:15And a voice spoke to him again the second time, "What God has cleansed you must not call common."
10:16This was done three times. And the object was taken up into heaven again.
10:17Now while Peter wondered within himself what this vision which he had seen meant, behold, the men who had been sent from Cornelius had made inquiry for Simon's house, and stood before the gate.
10:18And they called and asked whether Simon, whose surname was Peter, was lodging there.
10:19While Peter thought about the vision, the Spirit said to him, "Behold, three men are seeking you.
10:20Therefore arise, go down and go with them, doubting nothing; because I have sent them."
10:21Then Peter went down to the men who had been sent to him from Cornelius, and said, "Behold, I am he whom you seek. What is the reason then you have come?"
10:22And they said, "Cornelius the centurion, a just man, one who reverences God and has a good reputation among all the nation of the Jews, was advised from God through a holy angel to summon you to his house, and to hear words from you."
10:23Then he invited them in and lodged them. On the next day Peter went away with them, and some brethren from Joppa accompanied him.
10:24And the following day they entered into Caesarea. Now Cornelius was waiting for them, and had called together his relatives and close friends.
10:25As Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him and fell down at his feet and worshiped him.
10:26But Peter lifted him up, saying, "Stand up; I myself am also a man."
10:27And as he talked with him, he went in and found many who had come together.
10:28Then he said to them, "You know how unlawful it is for a someone who is a Jew to keep company with or go to one of another nation. But God has shown me that I should not call any man common or unclean.
10:29Therefore I came to you without objection as soon as I was sent for. I ask, then, for what reason have you sent for me?"
10:30So Cornelius said, "Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing,
10:31and said, 'Cornelius, your prayer has been heard, and your charitable gifts are remembered in the sight of God.
10:32Therefore send away to Joppa and call Simon here, whose surname is Peter. He is lodging in the house of one Simon, a tanner, beside the sea. When he comes, he will speak to you.'
10:33So I sent to you immediately, and you have done well that you came. Now therefore, we are all present before God, to hear all the things that are commanded you from God."
10:34Then Peter opened his mouth and said: "In truth I perceive that God shows no personal favoritism.
10:35But in every nation whoever reverences Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.
10:36The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ, He is Lord of all,
10:37that word I speak of, you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached:
10:38how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, because God was with Him.
10:39And we are witnesses of all things which He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they hung on a tree and murdered.
10:40Him God raised up on the third day, and showed Him openly,
10:41not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before by God, even to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead.
10:42And He commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is He who was ordained by God to be the Judge of the living and the dead.
10:43To Him all the prophets give witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins."
10:44While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word.
10:45And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also.
10:46Because they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God. Then they responded to Peter,
10:47"Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?"
10:48And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then they asked him to stay a few days.
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.
