King James Bible 2016
|6:1||What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?|
|6:2||God forbid! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?|
|6:3||Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His death?|
|6:4||Therefore we were buried with Him by baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.|
|6:5||Because, if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we will be also in the likeness of His resurrection,|
|6:6||knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that we should no longer serve sin.|
|6:7||Because he who has died has been freed from sin.|
|6:8||Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him,|
|6:9||knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him.|
|6:10||Because, in the death that He died, He died to sin once; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.|
|6:11||Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Jesus Christ our Lord.|
|6:12||Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.|
|6:13||And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as those who are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.|
|6:14||Because, sin will not have dominion over you, because you are not under law but under grace.|
|6:15||What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? God forbid!|
|6:16||Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves servants to obey, you are that one's servant whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?|
|6:17||But God be thanked that though you were servants of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered to you.|
|6:18||And having been set free from sin, you became servants of righteousness.|
|6:19||I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. Because, just as you presented your members as servants of uncleanness, and of iniquity leading to more iniquity, so now present your members as servants of righteousness for holiness.|
|6:20||Because when you were servants of sin, you were free from righteousness.|
|6:21||What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? Because the end of those things is death.|
|6:22||But now having been set free from sin, and having become servants of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.|
|6:23||Because, the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.|
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.
