King James Bible 2016

New Testament



3:1There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.
3:2This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; because, no one can do these miracles that You do unless God is with him."
3:3Jesus replied and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
3:4Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?"
3:5Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a man is born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God."
3:6That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit."
3:7Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You all must be born again.'"
3:8The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."
3:9Nicodemus replied and said to Him, "How can these things be?"
3:10Jesus answered and said to him, "Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?"
3:11Truly, truly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you all do not receive Our witness."
3:12If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you of heavenly things?"
3:13And no man has ascended up to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven."
3:14And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,"
3:15that whoever believes in Him would not perish but have eternal life."
3:16Because God loved the world so much He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him would not perish but have everlasting life."
3:17Because, God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved."
3:18"He who believes on Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."
3:19And this is the condemnation, that the light came into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil."
3:20Because, everyone who does evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed."
3:21But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God."
3:22After these things Jesus and His disciples came into the land of Judea, and there He remained with them and baptized.
3:23Now John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was a lot of water there. And they came and were baptized.
3:24Because John had not yet been thrown into prison.
3:25Then there arose a dispute between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purification.
3:26And they came to John and said to him, "Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Jordan, to whom you have witnessed of, look, He is baptizing, and everyone is coming to Him!"
3:27John answered and said, "A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven.
3:28You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, 'I am not the Christ,' but that, 'I have been sent before Him.'
3:29He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled.
3:30He must increase, but I must decrease.
3:31He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all.
3:32And what He has seen and heard, that He testifies; and no one receives His testimony.
3:33He who has received His testimony has certified that God is true.
3:34Because, He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, because God does not give the Spirit by measure to Him.
3:35The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand.
3:36He who believes on the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him."
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.
