King James Bible 2016

New Testament



1:1The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham.
1:2Abraham begot Isaac, and Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brethren.
1:3And Judah begot Perez and Zerah by Tamar, and Perez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Ram.
1:4And Ram begot Amminadab, and Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon.
1:5And Salmon begot Boaz by Rahab, and Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, and Obed begot Jesse,
1:6and Jesse begot David the king, and David the king begot Solomon by her who had been the wife of Uriah.
1:7And Solomon begot Rehoboam, and Rehoboam begot Abijah, and Abijah begot Asa.
1:8And Asa begot Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and Joram begot Uzziah,
1:9And Uzziah begot Jotham, and Jotham begot Ahaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah.
1:10And Hezekiah begot Manasseh, and Manasseh begot Amon, and Amon begot Josiah.
1:11And Josiah begot Jechoniah and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon.
1:12And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechoniah begot Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begot Zerubbabel.
1:13And Zerubbabel begot Abiud, and Abiud begot Eliakim, and Eliakim begot Azor.
1:14And Azor begot Zadoc, and Zadoc begot Achim, and Achim begot Eliud.
1:15And Eliud begot Eleazar, and Eleazar begot Matthan, and Matthan begot Jacob.
1:16And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
1:17So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the carrying away into Babylon to Christ are fourteen generations.
1:18Now the birth of Jesus Christ happened this way: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph before they came together, she was found with child from the Holy Spirit.
1:19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privately.
1:20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to yourself Mary your wife, because that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.
1:21And she will bear a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, because He will save His people from their sins."
1:22So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying:
1:23"Behold, a virgin will be with child, and will bear a Son, and they will call His name Immanuel," which being translated is, "God with us."
1:24Then Joseph being raised from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and took to him his wife,
1:25and did not know her until she had brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name JESUS.

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.
