Textus Receptus Bibles
King James Bible 2016
|10:1||Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they might be saved.|
|10:2||Because, I bear them record that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge.|
|10:3||Because, they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves to the righteousness of God.|
|10:4||Because Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.|
|10:5||Because, Moses writes about the righteousness which is of the law, "That the man who does those things shall live by them."|
|10:6||But the righteousness that is of faith speaks in this way, "Do not say in your heart, 'Who shall ascend into heaven?'" (that is, to bring Christ down from above)|
|10:7||or, "'Who shall descend into the abyss?'" (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).|
|10:8||But what does it say? "The word is near you, even in your mouth and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith which we preach):|
|10:9||that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and will believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.|
|10:10||Because, with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation.|
|10:11||Because, the Scripture says, "Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame."|
|10:12||Because, there is no distinction between the Jew and the Greek, because the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him.|
|10:13||Because "whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."|
|10:14||How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?|
|10:15||And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!"|
|10:16||But they have not all obeyed the gospel. Because, Isaiah says, "LORD, who has believed our report?"|
|10:17||So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.|
|10:18||But I say, have they not heard? Yes indeed: "Their sound has gone out to all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world."|
|10:19||But I say, did Israel not know? First Moses says: "I will provoke you to jealousy by those who are not a people, and I will move you to anger by a foolish nation."|
|10:20||But Isaiah is very bold and says: "I was found by those who did not seek Me; I was made manifest to those who did not ask for Me."|
|10:21||But to Israel he says: "All day long I have stretched out My hands to a disobedient and contrary people."|
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.
