King James Bible 2016

New Testament



17:1Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews.
17:2Then Paul, as his custom was, went in to them, and for three Sabbath days reasoned with them from the Scriptures,
17:3explaining and demonstrating that Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, "This Jesus whom I preach to you is Christ."
17:4And some of them believed; and a large multitude of the devout Greeks, and not a few of the leading women, joined Paul and Silas.
17:5But the Jews who did not believe, becoming envious, took some of the wicked men of a vulgar sort, and gathering a mob, set the entire city in an uproar and attacked the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.
17:6But when they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some brethren to the rulers of the city, shouting, "These who have turned the world upside down have come here also,
17:7Jason has harbored them, and these are all acting contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying there is another king, one Jesus."
17:8And they troubled the people and the rulers of the city when they heard these things.
17:9So when they had taken enough security from Jason and from the rest, they let them go.
17:10Then the brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea. When they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews.
17:11These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the Scriptures daily whether these things were so.
17:12Therefore many of them believed, and also not a few of the Greeks, prominent women as well as men.
17:13But when the Jews from Thessalonica learned that the word of God was preached by Paul at Berea, they came there also and stirred up the people.
17:14And then immediately the brethren sent Paul away, to go as it were to the sea; but both Silas and Timothy remained there.
17:15So those who escorted Paul brought him to Athens; and receiving a command for Silas and Timothy to come to him as soon as possible, they departed.
17:16Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred within him when he saw that the city was entirely given over to idolatry.
17:17Therefore he disputed in the synagogue with the Jews and with the devout people, and in the marketplace daily with those who met with him.
17:18Then some of the Epicurean and of the Stoic philosophers encountered him. And some said, "What does this babbler say?" Others said, "He seems to be a proclaimer of foreign gods," because he preached to them Jesus and the resurrection.
17:19And they took him and brought him to the Areopagus, saying, "May we know what this new doctrine is of which you speak?
17:20Because, you are bringing some strange things to our ears. Therefore we want to know what these things mean."
17:21Because, all the Athenians and the foreigners who were there spent their time in nothing else except to tell or to hear something new.
17:22Then Paul stood in the midst of the Mars' Hill and said, "You men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you are too superstitious;
17:23because, as I was passing by and considering the objects of your worship, I found an altar with this inscription: TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Therefore, the One whom you ignorantly worship, Him I proclaim to you:
17:24"God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands.
17:25Nor is He worshiped with men's hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.
17:26And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,
17:27so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might seek for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;
17:28because in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, 'because we are also His offspring.'
17:29Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man's devising.
17:30And, these times of such ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent,
17:31because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by that Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all people by raising Him from the dead."
17:32And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked, while others said, "We will hear you again on this matter."
17:33So Paul departed from among them.
17:34However, some men joined him and believed, among them was Dionysius the Areopagite, a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

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.
