King James Bible 2016

New Testament

 

   

13:1Now in the church that was at Antioch there were certain prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
13:2As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, "Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them."
13:3Then, when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.
13:4So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they departed to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus.
13:5And when they arrived in Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews. They also had John as their assistant.
13:6Now when they had gone through the island to Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew whose name was Barjesus,
13:7who was with the proconsul of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man. This man called for Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the word of God.
13:8But Elymas the sorcerer (for so his name is translated) opposed them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith.
13:9Then Saul (who also is called Paul), filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him
13:10and said, "O full of all deceit and all fraud, you child of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the right ways of the Lord?
13:11And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind, not seeing the sun for a season." And immediately a mist fell on him and darkness, and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand.
13:12Then the proconsul believed, when he saw what had been done, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.
13:13Now when Paul and his company set sail from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia; and John, departing from them, returned to Jerusalem.
13:14But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day and sat down.
13:15And after the reading of the Law and the Prophets, the rulers of the synagogue sent to them, saying, "You men and brethren, if you have any word of exhortation for the people, say on."
13:16Then Paul stood up, and motioning with his hand said, "Men of Israel, and you who reverence God, pay attention:
13:17The God of this people Israel chose our fathers, and lifted up the people when they dwelt as foreigners in the land of Egypt, and with an uplifted arm He brought them out of it.
13:18Now for a time of about forty years He endured with their ways in the wilderness.
13:19And when He had destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan, He distributed their land to them by allotment.
13:20"And after that He gave judges to them for the period of four hundred and fifty years, until Samuel the prophet.
13:21And afterward they desired a king; so God gave them Saul the son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, for the period of forty years.
13:22And when He had removed him, He raised up for them David to be their king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, 'I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will fulfill all My will.'
13:23From this man's seed, according to His promise, has God raised up for Israel a Savior, Jesus;
13:24after John had first preached, before His coming, the baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.
13:25And as John fulfilled his course, he said, 'Who do you think I am? I am not He. But behold, there comes One after me, the sandals of His feet I am not worthy to loose.'
13:26"Men and brethren, children of the family of Abraham, and those among you who reverence God, to you the word of this salvation has been sent.
13:27Because, those who dwell in Jerusalem, and their rulers, since they did not know Him, nor even the voices of the Prophets which are read every Sabbath day, have fulfilled them in condemning Him.
13:28And though they found no reason for death in Him, they asked Pilate that He should be killed.
13:29Now when they had fulfilled all that was written concerning Him, they took Him down from the tree and laid Him in a tomb.
13:30But God raised Him from the dead.
13:31He was seen for many days by those who came up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are His witnesses to the people.
13:32And we declare to you glad tidings; how that promise which was made to the fathers,
13:33God has fulfilled this for us their children, in that He has raised up Jesus again. As it is also written in the second Psalm: 'You are My Son, today I have begotten You.'
13:34And concerning how He raised Him from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, He has spoken in this way: 'I will give you the sure mercies of David.'
13:35Therefore He also says in another Psalm: 'You will not allow Your Holy One to see corruption.'
13:36"Because David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep, was buried with his fathers, and saw corruption;
13:37but He whom God raised up saw no corruption.
13:38Therefore let it be known to you, men and brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins;
13:39and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses.
13:40Beware therefore, lest what has been spoken in the prophets come upon you:
13:41'Behold, you despisers, marvel and perish! Because, I work a work in your days, a work which you will by no means believe, though one were to declare it to you.'"
13:42So when the Jews had gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles begged that these words might be preached to them the next Sabbath.
13:43Now when the congregation had broken up, many of the Jews and devout proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.
13:44And the next Sabbath day almost the entire city came together to hear the word of God.
13:45But when the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with envy; and contradicting and blaspheming, they spoke against the things spoken by Paul.
13:46Then Paul and Barnabas grew bold and said, "It was necessary that the word of God should be spoken to you first; but since you reject it, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles.
13:47Because, so has the Lord commanded us, saying 'I have set you as a light to the Gentiles, that you should exist for salvation to the ends of the earth.'"
13:48Now when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and glorified the word of the Lord. And as many as believed were ordained to eternal life.
13:49And the word of the Lord was being spread throughout the entire region.
13:50But the Jews stirred up the devout and prominent women and the chief men of the city, raised up persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them from their region.
13:51But they shook off the dust from their feet against them, and came to Iconium.
13:52And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.
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.
