Textus Receptus Bibles
King James Bible 2016
|1:1||Paul, an apostle (not from men nor by man, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised Him from the dead),|
|1:2||and all the brethren who are with me, to the churches of Galatia:|
|1:3||Grace be to you and peace from God the Father and from our Lord Jesus Christ,|
|1:4||who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,|
|1:5||to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.|
|1:6||I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you into the grace of Christ, to another gospel,|
|1:7||which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.|
|1:8||But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.|
|1:9||As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.|
|1:10||So am I now persuading men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? Because if I still pleased men, I would not be the servant of Christ.|
|1:11||But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man.|
|1:12||Because, I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came by the revelation of Jesus Christ.|
|1:13||Because, you have heard of my former conduct in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God beyond measure and destroyed it.|
|1:14||And I advanced in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries in my own nation, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers.|
|1:15||But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb and called me by His grace,|
|1:16||to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood,|
|1:17||nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went to Arabia, and returned again to Damascus.|
|1:18||Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and remained with him fifteen days.|
|1:19||But I saw none of the other apostles except James, the Lord's brother.|
|1:20||(Now concerning the things which I write to you, indeed, before God, I do not lie.)|
|1:21||Afterward I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.|
|1:22||And I was unknown by face to the churches of Judea which were in Christ.|
|1:23||But they had heard only, "He who formerly persecuted us now preaches the faith which he once destroyed."|
|1:24||And they glorified God in me.|
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.
