Textus Receptus Bibles

King James Bible 2016

New Testament



5:1Do not rebuke an older man, but exhort him as a father, younger men as brethren,
5:2older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with all purity.
5:3Honor widows who are truly widows.
5:4But if any widow has children or grandchildren, let them first learn to show piety at home and to repay their parents; because, this is good and acceptable before God.
5:5Now she who is truly a widow, and desolate, trusts in God and continues in supplications and prayers night and day.
5:6But she who lives in pleasure is dead while she lives.
5:7And these things give in commands, that they may be blameless.
5:8But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
5:9Do not let a widow under sixty years old be taken into the number, and not unless she has been the wife of one man,
5:10well reported for good works: if she has brought up children, if she has lodged strangers, if she has washed the saints' feet, if she has relieved the afflicted, if she has diligently followed every good work.
5:11But refuse the younger widows; because, when they have, begun to grow immoral against Christ, they desire to marry,
5:12having damnation because they have cast off their first faith.
5:13And besides they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house, and not only idle but also gossips and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.
5:14Therefore I desire that the younger women marry, bear children, manage the house, give no opportunity to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
5:15Because, some have already turned aside after Satan.
5:16If any believing man or woman has widows, let them relieve them, and do not let the church be burdened, that it may relieve those who are truly widows.
5:17Let the older men who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine.
5:18Because, the Scripture says, "You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain," and, "The laborer is worthy of his wages."
5:19Do not receive an accusation against an older man except from two or three witnesses.
5:20Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that others also may have reverence.
5:21I command you before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect angels that you observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing with personal favoritism.
5:22Do not lay hands on anyone hastily, nor be a partaker in other people's sins; keep yourself pure.
5:23No longer drink only water, but use a little grape juice for your stomach's sake and your frequent weaknesses.
5:24Some men's sins are clearly evident, preceding them to judgment, but those of some men follow afterwards.
5:25Likewise also, the good works of some are clearly manifest beforehand, and those that are otherwise cannot be hidden.
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.
