King James Bible 2016

New Testament

 

   

3:1O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified?
3:2This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
3:3Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?
3:4Have you suffered so many things in vain, if indeed it was in vain?
3:5Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
3:6Just as Abraham "believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness."
3:7Therefore know that those who are of faith, the same are children of Abraham.
3:8And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles through faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, "In you all the nations will be blessed."
3:9So then those who are of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
3:10Because, as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; because it is written, "Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them."
3:11But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, because "the just will live by faith."
3:12Yet the law is not of faith, but "the man who does them will live in them."
3:13Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (because it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree"),
3:14that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
3:15Brethren, I speak in the manner of men: Though it is only a man's covenant, yet if it is confirmed, no one annuls or adds to it.
3:16Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, "And to seeds," as of many, but as of one, "And to your Seed," who is Christ.
3:17And this I say, that the law, which was four hundred and thirty years later, cannot annul the covenant that was confirmed before by God in Christ, that it should make the promise of no effect.
3:18Because, if the inheritance is of the law, it is no longer of promise; but God gave it to Abraham by promise.
3:19What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, until the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained through angels by the hand of a mediator.
3:20Now a mediator does not mediate for one only, but God is one.
3:21Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid! Because, if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law.
3:22But the Scripture has concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith, of Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.
3:23But before faith came, we were preserved by the law, preserved for the faith which would afterward be revealed.
3:24Therefore the law was an instructor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
3:25But after faith has come, we are no longer under an instructor.
3:26Because, you are all sons of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
3:27Because, as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
3:28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; because you are all one in Christ Jesus.
3:29And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
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.
