  The New King James Version
In 1975 an international group of 130 scholars began work on the New King James Version, which was to be a revision, using the KJV as a base, and not a new translation of the Bible.
One of the most significant features of the NKJV was its abandonment of the second personal pronouns "thou," "ye," "thy," and "thine." Verbal endings and verb forms were also modernized in the NKJV.
The New King James Version is a reasonable attempt by a large group of competent scholars to produce an English language Bible that retains as much of the classic KJV as possible, while updating the language to accommodate the modern reader.

 New King James Version preface   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Where new translation has been necessary in the New King James Version, the most complete representation of the original has been rendered by considering the history of usage and etymology of words in their contexts.
The New King James Version follows the historic precedent of the Authorized Version in maintaining a literal approach to translation, except where the idiom of the original language cannot be translated directly into our tongue.
In light of these facts, and also because the New King James Version is the fifth revision of a historic document translated from specific Greek texts, the editors decided to retain the traditional text in the body of the New Testament and to indicate major Critical and Majority Text variant readings in the footnotes.

 New King James Version
The translators, the committees, and the editors sought to maintain the lyrical quality of the King James Version while being sensitive to the late twentieth century English idiom and adhering faithfully to the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts.
King James spelling of untranslated words was retained, but made uniform throughout.
The New Testament was based on the traditional text of Greek-speaking churches, first published in 1516 and later referred to as the Received Text.

 The NKJV Examined
The instances in which the NKJV breaks with the original KJV by substituting wording identical to that of corrupted modern Bible versions are too numerous to be considered coincidence.
The NKJV translators claimed it was one of their purposes to update words where the meaning of a particular word had changed over the last 375 years.

 Why I Like the NKJV - Part One
NKJV: For this reason the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels.
The first is in the translation of "to be having" vs. "to have." The ALT uses the participle form as the Greek infinitive is in the present tense indicating ongoing action.
The second minor difference is the NKJV italicizes "her" while the ALT does not.

 THE DOUBT-PRODUCING MARGIN OF THE NEW KING JAMES VERSION   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The advertisements for the NKJV would have readers believe that there are no textual changes and that the men who produced it love the old King James Bible.
The editors of the NKJV claim they are honoring the Received Text with their New King James Bible, but they have given credibility to the corrupted UBS text by placing its doubt-producing readings in the margin of their Bible.
Many modern version defenders point to the marginal notes in the 1611 KJV and claim that it is inconsistent for King James Bible defenders to make something of the critical textual notes in the modern versions while ignoring the ones in the original KJV.

 What is wrong with the New King James Version (NKJV)?
The NKJV consistently uses terms that don't mean the same as in the King James Bible.
Although each scholar was asked to subscribe to a statement confirming his belief in the plenary, divine, verbal inspiration of the original autographs (none of which exist today), the question of whether or not they also believed in the divine preservation of the divinely inspired originals was not an issue as it should have been.
The New King James is just a compromise between the liberal, perverted Bible versions floating around and the rock-solid, accurate and preserved words of God, the King James Bible.
