New Testament

 

   

7:1Because, this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him,
7:2to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being translated as "king of righteousness," and then also king of Salem, that is "king of peace,"
7:3without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually.
7:4Now consider how great this man was, to whom even the patriarch Abraham gave a tenth of the spoils.
7:5And indeed those who are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to receive tithes from the people according to the law, that is, from their brethren, though they have come from the loins of Abraham;
7:6but he whose genealogy is not derived from them received tithes from Abraham and blessed him who had the promises.
7:7Now beyond all contradiction the lesser is blessed by the better.
7:8And here mortal men receive tithes, but there he receives them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives.
7:9And Levi also, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham, so to speak,
7:10because he was still in the loins of his father when Melchizedek met him.
7:11Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical priesthood (because under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another priest should rise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be called according to the order of Aaron?
7:12Because, the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law.
7:13Because, He of whom these things are spoken belongs to another tribe, from which no man has served at the altar.
7:14Because, it is evident that our Lord arose out of Judah, of which tribe Moses spoke nothing concerning priesthood.
7:15And it is yet far more evident if, in the likeness of Melchizedek, there arises another priest
7:16who is made, not according to the law of a fleshly commandment, but according to the power of an endless life.
7:17Because He testifies: "You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek."
7:18Because, on the one hand there is truly an annulling of the former commandment because of its weakness and unprofitableness,
7:19because, the law made nothing perfect; but the bringing in of a better hope did, by which we draw near to God.
7:20And inasmuch as He was not made priest without an oath
7:21(because, they have become priests without an oath, but He with an oath by Him who said to Him: "The LORD has sworn and will not relent, 'You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek'"),
7:22by so much more Jesus has become a surety of a better testament.
7:23Also truly there were many priests, because they were prevented by death from continuing.
7:24But this Man, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood.
7:25Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God by Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
7:26Because, such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens;
7:27who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people's, because this He did once when He offered up Himself.
7:28Because, the law appoints men as high priests who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son who is consecrated forever.

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.
