The New King James Version Bible (NKJV)

ISBN: 9780718038755



The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version (KJV), also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version of the KJV Bible, while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.

    I've always considered the NKJV the "best of all worlds" translation. Literally rendered; modern but kept in the spirit of Tyndale and the KJV; keeps continuity with the historical Byzantine readings that the Church has long used since the patristic age; widely used by both Evangelicals and Orthodox; and last but not least, also has extensive footnotes that still give readings to critical variants (all of which are just as literally rendered as the NASB or ESV). I only wish that Faithlife offered more Study Bible editions from Thomas Nelson.

    Not sure how many differences there are but it looks like Isaiah 44:1 is a little different in this version than in any other NKJV I can get ahold of. Not sure why since to my knowledge the NKJV has never been updated. Anyone notice anything else?
