Textus Receptus Bibles
King James Bible 2016
|12:1||I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.|
|12:2||And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.|
|12:3||Because I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, just as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.|
|12:4||Because, as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function,|
|12:5||so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.|
|12:6||Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us: if prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;|
|12:7||or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching;|
|12:8||he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, let him do it with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.|
|12:9||Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.|
|12:10||Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another;|
|12:11||not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;|
|12:12||rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer;|
|12:13||distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.|
|12:14||Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.|
|12:15||Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.|
|12:16||Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.|
|12:17||Repay no one evil for evil. Provide things that are honest in the sight of everyone.|
|12:18||If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with everyone.|
|12:19||Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; because it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord.|
|12:20||Therefore "If your enemy hungers, feed him; if he thirsts, give him a drink; because in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head."|
|12:21||Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.|
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.
