New Testament

 

   

14:1Now it happened in Iconium that they both went together to the synagogue of the Jews, and spoke in such a way that a large crowd both of the Jews and of the Greeks believed.
14:2But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brethren.
14:3Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord, who gave testimony to the word of His grace, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.
14:4But the population of the city was divided: part sided with the Jews, and part with the apostles.
14:5And when a violent attempt was made by both the Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers, to abuse them, and to stone them,
14:6they were aware of it and fled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the surrounding region.
14:7And they preached the gospel there.
14:8And in Lystra a certain man without strength in his feet was sitting, being a cripple from his mother's womb, who had never walked.
14:9This man heard Paul speaking, who observing him intently and seeing that he had faith to be healed,
14:10said with a loud voice, "Stand up straight on your feet!" And he leaped and walked.
14:11Now when the people saw what Paul had done, they raised their voices, saying in the Lycaonian language, "The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!"
14:12And Barnabas they called Jupiter, and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker.
14:13Then the priest of Jupiter, who was in front of their city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates, intending to do sacrifice with the people.
14:14But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard this, they tore their clothes and ran in among the people, shouting out
14:15and saying, "Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men with a similar nature to you, and preach to you that you should turn from these useless things to the living God, who made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and all things that are in them,
14:16who in times past allowed all nations to walk in their own ways.
14:17Nevertheless He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness."
14:18And with these sayings they could barely restrain the people from sacrificing to them.
14:19Then certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium came there; who persuaded the people, and having stoned Paul, dragged him out of the city, supposing him to be dead.
14:20However, when the disciples gathered around him, he rose up and went into the city. And the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.
14:21And when they had preached the gospel to that city and taught many, they returned to Lystra, Iconium, and Antioch,
14:22strengthening the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.
14:23So when they had appointed elders in every church, and prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord in whom they had believed.
14:24And after they had passed through Pisidia, they came to Pamphylia.
14:25Now when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down into Attalia.
14:26From there they sailed to Antioch, where they had been commended to the grace of God for the work which they had completed.
14:27Now when they had come and gathered the church together, they reported all that God had done with them, and how He had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.
14:28So they stayed there a long time with the disciples.

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.
