Textus Receptus Bibles
King James Bible 2016
|14:1||Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to disputes over doubtful things.|
|14:2||Because, one believes he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats only vegetables.|
|14:3||Let not him who eats despise him who does not eat, and let not him who does not eat judge him who eats; because God has received him.|
|14:4||Who are you to judge another's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be able to stand, because God is able to make him stand.|
|14:5||One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind.|
|14:6||He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, because he gives God thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks.|
|14:7||Because none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself.|
|14:8||Because, if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So whether we live or die, we are the Lord's.|
|14:9||Because, for this purpose Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living.|
|14:10||But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? Because we will all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.|
|14:11||Because, it is written: "As I live, says the LORD, every knee will bow to Me, and every tongue will confess to God."|
|14:12||So then each of us will give account of himself to God.|
|14:13||Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a reason to fall in his brother's way.|
|14:14||I know and am convinced by the Lord Jesus that there is nothing unclean of itself; but to him who considers anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean.|
|14:15||But if your brother is grieved because of your food, you are no longer walking in love. Do not destroy with your food the one who Christ died for.|
|14:16||Therefore do not let your good be spoken of as evil;|
|14:17||because, the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.|
|14:18||Because, he who serves Christ in these things is acceptable to God and approved by men.|
|14:19||Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another.|
|14:20||Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All things indeed are pure, but it is evil for the man who eats with offense.|
|14:21||It is good neither to eat meat nor drink grape juice nor do anything by which your brother stumbles or is offended or is made weak.|
|14:22||Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in those things which he approves.|
|14:23||But he who doubts is damned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; because whatever is not from faith is sin.|
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.
