New Testament

 

   

9:1Then Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest
9:2and requested letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.
9:3As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven.
9:4Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?"
9:5And he said, "Who are You, Lord?" Then the Lord said, "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the prods."
9:6So he, trembling and astonished, said, "Lord, what do You want me to do?" Then the Lord said to him, "Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do."
9:7And the men who journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice but seeing no one.
9:8Then Saul arose from the ground, and when his eyes were opened he saw no one. But they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus.
9:9And he was without sight for three days, and neither ate nor drank.
9:10Now there was a certain disciple at Damascus named Ananias; and to him the Lord said in a vision, "Ananias." And he said, "Behold, I am here, Lord."
9:11So the Lord said to him, "Arise and go to the street which is called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus, because behold, he is praying."
9:12And in a vision he has seen a man named Ananias coming in and putting his hand on him, so that he might receive his sight."
9:13Then Ananias replied, "Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how much evil he has done to Your saints in Jerusalem.
9:14And here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all who call on Your name."
9:15But the Lord said to him, "Go your way, because, he is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before the Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel."
9:16Because, I will show him how many things he must suffer for My name's sake."
9:17And Ananias went his way and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him he said, "Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus who appeared to you on the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit."
9:18And immediately there fell from his eyes something like scales, and he received his sight at once; and he arose and was baptized.
9:19So when he had received food, he was strengthened. Then Saul spent some days with the disciples at Damascus.
9:20And immediately he preached the Christ in the synagogues, that He is the Son of God.
9:21Then all who heard him were amazed, and said, "Is this not he who destroyed those who called on this name in Jerusalem, and has come here for that purpose, so that he might bring them bound to the chief priests?"
9:22But Saul increased all the more in strength, and confounded the Jews who dwelt in Damascus, proving that this truly is the Christ.
9:23Now after many days were past, the Jews plotted to kill him.
9:24But their plot became known to Saul. And they watched the gates day and night, to kill him.
9:25Then the disciples took him by night and let him down by the wall in a basket.
9:26And when Saul had come to Jerusalem, he tried to join himself to the disciples; but they were all afraid of him, and did not believe that he was a disciple.
9:27But Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles. And he declared to them how he had seen the Lord on the road, and that He had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus.
9:28So he was with them at Jerusalem, coming in and going out.
9:29And he spoke boldly in the name of the Lord Jesus and disputed against the Hellenists, but they attempted to kill him.
9:30Which when the brethren found out, they brought him down to Caesarea and sent him out to Tarsus.
9:31Then the churches throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had rest and were edified. And walking in the reverence of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, they were multiplied.
9:32Now it came to pass, as Peter went through every corner of the country, that he also came down to the saints who dwelt in Lydda.
9:33There he found a certain man named Aeneas, who had been bedridden eight years and was paralyzed.
9:34And Peter said to him, "Aeneas, Jesus Christ makes you whole. Arise and make your bed." Then he arose immediately.
9:35So all who dwelt at Lydda and Sharon saw him and turned to the Lord.
9:36Now at Joppa there was a certain disciple named Tabitha, which is translated Dorcas. This woman was full of good works and charitable deeds which she did.
9:37But it happened in those days that she became sick and died. When they had washed her, they laid her in an upper room.
9:38And since Lydda was near Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent two men to him, imploring him not to delay in coming to them.
9:39Then Peter arose and went with them. When he had come, they brought him into the upper room. And all the widows stood by him weeping, showing the coats and garments which Dorcas had made while she was with them.
9:40But Peter put them all out, and knelt down and prayed. And turning himself toward the body he said, "Tabitha, arise." And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up.
9:41Then he gave her his hand and lifted her up; and when he had called the saints and widows, he presented her alive.
9:42And it became known throughout all Joppa, and many believed in the Lord.
9:43So it was that he stayed many days in Joppa with Simon, a tanner.
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.
