New Testament

 

   

3:1Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.
3:2And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask for charitable gifts from those who entered the temple;
3:3who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked for charitable gifts.
3:4And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, "Look at us."
3:5So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them.
3:6Then Peter said, "I do not have any silver and gold, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk."
3:7And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
3:8So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them, walking, leaping, and praising God.
3:9And all the people saw him walking and praising God.
3:10Then they knew that it was he who sat begging for charitable gifts at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.
3:11Now as the lame man who was healed held on to Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch which is called Solomon's, greatly amazed.
3:12So when Peter saw it, he responded to the people: "You men of Israel, why do you marvel at this? Or why look so intently at us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man walk?
3:13The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified His Son Jesus, whom you delivered up and rejected Him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go.
3:14But you rejected the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted to you,
3:15and killed the Prince of life, whom God has raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses.
3:16And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes by Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
3:17"Yet now, brethren, I know that you did it in ignorance, as did also your rulers.
3:18But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that Christ would suffer, He has likewise fulfilled.
3:19Therefore repent and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,
3:20and He will send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you beforehand,
3:21whom the heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.
3:22Because, Moses truly said to the fathers, 'The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brethren. Him you will hear in all things, whatever He says to you.
3:23And it will be that every soul who shall not hear that Prophet will be utterly destroyed from among the people.'
3:24Yes, and all the prophets, from Samuel and those who followed later, as many as have spoken, have also foretold these days.
3:25You are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying to Abraham, 'And in your seed all the families of the earth will be blessed.'
3:26To you first, God, having raised up His Son Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities."

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.
