King James Bible 2016

New Testament



1:1Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God,
1:2which He had promised beforehand through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures,
1:3concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was made of the seed of David according to the flesh,
1:4and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.
1:5By whom we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name,
1:6among whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ;
1:7To all who are in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
1:8First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the entire world.
1:9Because, God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers,
1:10making request if, by some means, now at last I may have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come to you.
1:11Because, I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established;
1:12that is, that I may be encouraged together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.
1:13Now I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that I often planned to come to you, (but was hindered until now), that I might have some fruit among you also, just as among other Gentiles.
1:14I am a debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians, both to the wise, and to the unwise.
1:15So, as much as is in me, I am ready to preach the gospel to you who are in Rome also.
1:16Because, I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, because it is the power of God to salvation to everyone who believes, for the Jew first, and also for the Greek.
1:17Because in it, the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just will live by faith."
1:18Because, the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
1:19because what may be known of God is manifest in them, because God has shown it to them.
1:20Because, since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse,
1:21because although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
1:22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
1:23and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds and four footed animals and creeping things.
1:24Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies among themselves,
1:25who changed the truth of God into lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
1:26For this reason God gave them over to vile passions. Because, even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.
1:27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men doing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves that penalty of their error which was due.
1:28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not appropriate;
1:29being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deception, malignity; being whisperers,
1:30backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
1:31without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful;
1:32who knowing the judgment of God, that those who commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but approve those who do 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.
