King James Bible 2016

New Testament



4:1Therefore, when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John
4:2(though Jesus Himself did not baptize, but His disciples),
4:3He left Judea and departed again to Galilee.
4:4But He needed to go through Samaria.
4:5So He came to a city of Samaria which is called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
4:6Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus on the well. Now it was about the sixth hour.
4:7A woman of Samaria came there to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give Me a drink."
4:8Because His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.
4:9Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, that is a Samaritan woman?" Because Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.
4:10Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water."
4:11The woman said to Him, "Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water?
4:12Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his children and his livestock?"
4:13Jesus answered and said to her, "Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again,"
4:14but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never thirst. But the water that I will give him will be in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life."
4:15The woman said to Him, "Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw."
4:16Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come here."
4:17The woman replied and said, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You have said rightly, 'I have no husband,'
4:18Because, you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly."
4:19The woman said to Him, "Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet.
4:20Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you all say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship."
4:21Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father."
4:22You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, because salvation is of the Jews."
4:23But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; because the Father is seeking such to worship Him."
4:24God is a Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth."
4:25The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming, who is called Christ. When He comes, He will tell us all things."
4:26Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am He."
4:27And at this point His disciples came, and they marveled that He talked with the woman; yet no one said, "What do You seek?" or, "Why are You talking with her?"
4:28The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men,
4:29"Come, see a Man who told me everything that I ever did. Is this not the Christ?"
4:30Then they went out of the city and came to Him.
4:31In the meantime His disciples urged Him, saying, "Teacher, eat."
4:32But He said to them, "I have food to eat of which you do not know about."
4:33Therefore the disciples said to one another, "Has anyone brought Him anything to eat?"
4:34Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work."
4:35Do you not say, 'There are still four months and then comes the harvest'? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, because they are already white for harvest!"
4:36And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together."
4:37Because in this the saying is true: 'One sows and another reaps.'"
4:38I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors."
4:39And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on Him because of the word of the woman who testified, "He told me everything that I ever did."
4:40So when the Samaritans had come to Him, they urged Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days.
4:41And many more believed because of His own word.
4:42Then they said to the woman, "Now we believe, not because of what you said, but because we have heard Him ourselves and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world."
4:43Now after the two days He departed from there and went to Galilee.
4:44Because, Jesus Himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country.
4:45Then when He came to Galilee, the Galileans received Him, having seen all the things He did in Jerusalem at the feast; because they also had gone to the feast.
4:46So Jesus came again to Cana of Galilee where He had made the water grape juice. And there was a certain nobleman whose son was sick at Capernaum.
4:47When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and implored Him to come down and heal his son, because he was at the point of death.
4:48Then Jesus said to him, "Unless you see signs and wonders, you all will not believe."
4:49The nobleman said to Him, "Sir, come down before my child dies!"
4:50Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your son lives." So the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way.
4:51And as he was now going down, his servants met him and told him, saying, "Your son lives!"
4:52Then he inquired of them the hour when he began to get better. And they said to him, "Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him."
4:53So the father knew that it was at the same hour in which Jesus said to him, "Your son lives." And he himself believed, and his entire household.
4:54This again is the second miracle that Jesus did when He had come out of Judea into Galilee.
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.
