King James Bible 2016

New Testament



3:1Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have a free course, and be glorified, just as it is with you,
3:2and that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; because not everyone has faith.
3:3But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and keep you from evil.
3:4And we have confidence in the Lord concerning you, both that you do and will do the things that we command you.
3:5Now may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the perseverance for Christ.
3:6Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother who walks disorderly and not according to the tradition which he received from us.
3:7Because you yourselves know how you ought to follow us, because we were not disorderly among you;
3:8Neither did we eat anyone's bread free of charge, but worked with labor and toil night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you,
3:9not because we do not have authority, but to make of ourselves an example of how you should follow us.
3:10Because, even when we were with you, we commanded you this: That if anyone will not work, neither should he eat.
3:11Because, we hear that there are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner, not working at all, but are busybodies.
3:12Now those who are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ that they work in quietness and eat their own bread.
3:13But as for you, brethren, do not become weary in doing good.
3:14And if anyone does not obey our word in this letter, note that person, and do not keep company with him, that he may be ashamed.
3:15Yet count him not as an enemy, but instruct him as a brother.
3:16Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all.
3:17The salutation of Paul with my own hand, which is confirmation in every letter; so I write.
3:18The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

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.
