King James Bible 2016

New Testament



2:1Now when the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2:2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.
2:3Then there appeared to them divided tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
2:4And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
2:5And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven.
2:6And when this sound occurred, the crowd came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language.
2:7Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, "Look, are not all these who speak Galileans?
2:8And how is it that we hear, each man in our own language in which we were born?
2:9Parthians and Medes and Elamites, those dwelling in Mesopotamia, in Judea and Cappadocia, in Pontus and Asia,
2:10Phrygia and Pamphylia, in Egypt and in the parts of Libya adjoining Cyrene, visitors from Rome, Jews and proselytes,
2:11Cretans and Arabs, we hear them speaking in our own languages the wonderful works of God."
2:12So they were all amazed and in doubt, saying to one another, "Whatever could this mean?"
2:13Others mocking said, "They are full of new wine."
2:14But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, "You men of Judea and all of you who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words.
2:15Because, these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day.
2:16But this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel:
2:17'And it will come to pass in the last days, says God, I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.
2:18And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out of My Spirit in those days; and they will prophesy.
2:19I will show wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath: Blood and fire and vapor of smoke.
2:20The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.
2:21And it will come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.'
2:22"You men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man approved by God among you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did by Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know:
2:23Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken, and by wicked hands, have crucified, and put to death;
2:24whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it.
2:25Because, David says concerning Him: 'I foresaw the LORD always before my face, because, He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken.
2:26Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad; moreover my flesh also will rest in hope.
2:27Because, You will not leave my soul in the abode of the dead, nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
2:28You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in Your presence.'
2:29"Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.
2:30Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne,
2:31he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in the abode of the dead, nor did His flesh see corruption.
2:32This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses.
2:33Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear.
2:34"Because, David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself: 'The Lord said to my Lord, "Sit at My right hand,
2:35until I make Your enemies Your footstool."'
2:36"Therefore let all the house of Israel know with certainty that God has made this same Jesus, whom you have crucified, both Lord and Christ."
2:37Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?"
2:38Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
2:39Because, the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, that is to as many as the Lord our God will call."
2:40And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, "Save yourselves from this perverse generation."
2:41Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.
2:42And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
2:43Then reverence came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.
2:44Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common,
2:45and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all the people, as anyone had need.
2:46So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart,
2:47praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.
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.
