King James Bible 2016

New Testament

 

   

9:1I tell the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit,
9:2that I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.
9:3Because, I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my countrymen according to the flesh,
9:4who are Israelites, to whom pertain the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service of God, and the promises;
9:5of whom are the fathers and of whom, according to the flesh, Christ came, who is over all, blessed by God forever. Amen.
9:6But it is not that the word of God has taken no effect. Because, they are not all Israel who are of Israel,
9:7nor are they all children because they are the seed of Abraham; but, "In Isaac your seed will be called."
9:8That is, those who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed.
9:9Because, this is the word of promise: "At this time I will come and Sarah will have a son."
9:10And not only this, but when Rebecca also had conceived by one man, that is by our father Isaac
9:11(because, the children being not yet born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works but of Him who calls),
9:12it was said to her, "The older will serve the younger."
9:13As it is written, "Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated."
9:14What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid!
9:15Because, He says to Moses, "I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion."
9:16So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy.
9:17Because, the Scripture says to the Pharaoh, "For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared throughout all the earth."
9:18Therefore He has mercy on whom He will have mercy, and whom He wills He hardens.
9:19You will say to me then, "Why does He still find fault? Because who has resisted His will?"
9:20But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Shall the thing formed say to him who formed it, "Why have you made me like this?"
9:21Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor?
9:22What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction,
9:23and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory,
9:24even us whom He has called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?
9:25As He says also in Hosea: "I will call them My people, who were not My people, and her beloved, who was not beloved."
9:26"And it will come to pass that in the place where it was said to them, 'You are not My people,' There they will be called children of the living God."
9:27Isaiah also proclaims concerning Israel: "Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant will be saved.
9:28Because, He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness, because the Lord will make a short work upon the earth."
9:29And as Isaiah said before: "Unless the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we would have become like Sodom, and we would have been made like Gomorrah."
9:30What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith;
9:31but Israel, pursuing the law of righteousness, has not attained to the law of righteousness.
9:32Why? Because, they did not seek it by faith, but as it were, by the works of the law. Because they stumbled at that stumbling stone.
9:33As it is written: "Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense, and whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame."
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.
