KJV VS Majority Text

NKJV Foot Note References to the MT



Comparing the underlying text of the KJV {know as the received text recreated by Scrivener} to the Majority text (as done for us in NKJV Bibles) reveals at this point no differences (with the exception of where I have highlighted in yellow or else underlined).  Reading a  English Robinson translation along a KJV Bible will not give you a true picture of where are these differences because often enough the KJV does not follow that text supported by Scrivener and his re-created received text or the KJV is only making a choice between two equally supported meanings. In other words it takes a Greek scholar to find true differences in texts here, and not meaningless differences.
