King James Bible 2016

New Testament

 

   

20:1After the uproar had ceased, Paul called the disciples to himself, embraced them, and departed to go to Macedonia.
20:2Now when he had gone over that region and encouraged them with many words, he came into Greece
20:3and stayed there three months. And when the Jews plotted against him as he was about to sail to Syria, he decided to return through Macedonia.
20:4And Sopater of Berea accompanied him to Asia, also Aristarchus and Secundus of the Thessalonians, and Gaius of Derbe, and Timothy, and of Asia Tychicus and Trophimus.
20:5These, going ahead, waited for us at Troas.
20:6But we sailed away from Philippi after the Days of Unleavened Bread, and in five days joined them at Troas, where we stayed seven days.
20:7Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul, ready to depart the next day, preached to them and continued his message until midnight.
20:8There were many lamps in the upper room where they were gathered together.
20:9And in a window sat a certain young man named Eutychus, who was falling into a deep sleep. He was overcome by sleep; and as Paul continued preaching, he fell down from the third story and was taken up dead.
20:10But Paul went down, fell on him, and embracing him said, "Do not trouble yourselves, because his life is in him."
20:11Now when he had come up again, had broken bread and eaten, and talked a long while, even until daybreak, he departed.
20:12And they brought the young man in alive, and they were not a little comforted.
20:13Then we went ahead to the ship and sailed to Assos, there intending to take Paul on board; because he had given orders, intending himself to go on foot.
20:14And when he met us at Assos, we took him on board and came to Mitylene.
20:15We sailed from there, and the next day came opposite Chios. The following day we arrived at Samos and stayed at Trogyllium. The next day we came to Miletus.
20:16Because, Paul had determined to sail past Ephesus, so that he would not have to spend time in Asia; because he was hurrying to be at Jerusalem, if possible, on the Day of Pentecost.
20:17From Miletus he sent to Ephesus and called for the elders of the church.
20:18And when they had come to him, he said to them: "You know, from the first day that I came to Asia, in what manner I always lived among you, in every season
20:19serving the Lord with all humility of mind, with many tears and trials which happened to me by the plotting of the Jews;
20:20and how I kept back nothing that was helpful to you, but have shown you, and taught you publicly and from house to house,
20:21testifying both to Jews, and also to Greeks, repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
20:22And behold, now I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall happen to me there,
20:23except that the Holy Spirit witnesses in every city, saying that chains and afflictions await me.
20:24But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
20:25"And indeed, now I know that you all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, will see my face no longer.
20:26Therefore I want you to record this day that I am innocent of the blood of all people.
20:27Because I have not shunned to declare to you the entire counsel of God.
20:28Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among whom the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to feed the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.
20:29Because I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.
20:30Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after themselves.
20:31Therefore watch, and remember that for the space of three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.
20:32"So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
20:33I have coveted no one's silver or gold or apparel.
20:34Yes, you yourselves know that these hands have provided for my necessities, and for those who were with me.
20:35I have shown you in everything, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'"
20:36And when he had said these things, he knelt down and prayed with them all.
20:37Then they all wept freely, and fell on Paul's neck and kissed him,
20:38sorrowing most of all for the words which he spoke, that they would see his face no longer. And they accompanied him to the ship.

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.
