King James Bible 2016

New Testament



1:1In as much as many have taken in hand to arrange in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us,
1:2just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word delivered them to us,
1:3it seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write to you in order, most excellent Theophilus,
1:4that you may know the certainty of those things in which you were instructed.
1:5There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah, and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.
1:6And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.
1:7But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both now well advanced in years.
1:8And it came to pass, that while he was serving in the priest's office before God in the order of his division,
1:9according to the custom of the priesthood, his lot fell to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.
1:10And the entire crowd of the people were praying outside at the time of incense.
1:11Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing on the right side of the altar of incense.
1:12And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.
1:13But the angel said to him, "Do not fear, Zacharias, because your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you will call his name John.
1:14And you will have joy and happiness and many will rejoice at his birth.
1:15Because, he will be great in the sight of the Lord and will drink neither grape juice nor strong drink. And he will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb.
1:16And he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God.
1:17He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, 'to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,' and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord."
1:18And Zacharias said to the angel, "How shall I know this? Because, I am an old man, and my wife well advanced in years."
1:19And the angel answered and said to him, "I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and to show you these glad tidings.
1:20But behold, you will be mute and not able to speak until the day that these things will take place, because you did not believe my words which will be fulfilled in their own time."
1:21And the people waited for Zacharias and marveled that he lingered so long in the temple.
1:22But when he came out, he could not speak to them; and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple, because he beckoned to them and remained speechless.
1:23So it was, as soon as the days of his service were completed, he departed to his own house.
1:24Now after those days his wife Elizabeth conceived; and hid herself five months, saying,
1:25"Thus the Lord has dealt with me, in the days when He looked upon me, to take away my dishonor among men."
1:26Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
1:27to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin's name was Mary.
1:28And the angel went in to her presence and said, "Rejoice, you who are highly favored, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!"
1:29But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying and considered what manner of greeting this was.
1:30Then the angel said to her, "Do not fear, Mary, because you have found favor with God.
1:31And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and will call His name JESUS.
1:32He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give to Him the throne of His father David.
1:33And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end."
1:34Then Mary said to the angel, "How can this be, since I do not know a man?"
1:35And the angel answered and said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who will be born of you will be called the Son of God.
1:36Now behold, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is the sixth month for her, who was called barren.
1:37Because with God nothing will be impossible."
1:38Then Mary said, "Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word." And the angel departed from her.
1:39Mary arose in those days and hurried into the hill country, into a city of Judah,
1:40and entered into the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth.
1:41And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
1:42And she spoke out with a loud voice and said, "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!
1:43But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
1:44Because, indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
1:45And blessed is she who believed, because there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord."
1:46Then Mary said: "My soul magnifies the Lord,
1:47and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
1:48Because, He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant; because behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed.
1:49Because, He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name.
1:50And His mercy is on those who reverence Him from generation to generation.
1:51He has shown strength with His arm; He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
1:52He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted the lowly.
1:53He has filled the hungry with good things, and He has sent the rich away empty.
1:54He has helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy,
1:55as He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to His seed forever."
1:56Then Mary stayed with her about three months, and returned to her own house.
1:57Now Elizabeth's full time came for her to be delivered, and she brought forth a son.
1:58And her neighbors and her relatives heard how the Lord had shown great mercy on her, and they rejoiced with her.
1:59And so it was, on the eighth day, they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father.
1:60But his mother replied and said, "Not this; but he will be called John."
1:61But they said to her, "There is no one from your family that is called by this name."
1:62So they made signs to his father, what he would have him called.
1:63And he asked for a writing tablet, and wrote, saying, "His name is John." So they all marveled.
1:64And immediately His mouth was opened and his tongue loosed, and he spoke and praised God.
1:65Then reverence came on all who lived around about them; and all these sayings were discussed throughout all the hill country of Judea.
1:66And all those who heard them kept them in their hearts, saying, "What kind of child shall this be?" And the hand of the Lord was with him.
1:67Now his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying,
1:68"Blessed is the Lord God of Israel, because, He has visited and redeemed His people,
1:69and has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David,
1:70as He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets, who have been since the world began,
1:71that we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us,
1:72to perform the mercy promised to our fathers and to remember His holy covenant,
1:73the oath which He swore to our father Abraham:
1:74That He would grant to us, that we, being delivered out of the hand of our enemies, might serve Him without fear,
1:75in holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life.
1:76"And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Highest; because, you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare His ways,
1:77to give knowledge of salvation to His people by the remission of their sins,
1:78through the tender mercy of our God, with which the Dayspring from on high has visited us;
1:79to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace."
1:80So the child grew and became strong in spirit, and was in the deserts until the day of his appearance to Israel.
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.
