Modern Bible Deception Verse Comparison Study

The premise behind the modern Bible versions, such as the NIV and ESV, is that they’re easier to read, but the deception lies in the fact that they are missing words and verses, which is forbidden by God.

For example, the NIV has 64,576 (which is 10%) fewer words than the King James.

What you’ll notice is that many of those changes are in verses that validate the deity of Jesus.  So grab your Bible and compare it to the King James verses listed below and you will see Satan’s pattern of removing important texts.

This is not a ‘King James only’ Bible study.  Other Bibles are based on the Textus Receptus (Received Text), but the King James is the most common one, so we’ve used it for this study.

The missing or changed words are in blue.

NOTE: Your Bible version may not have all of the changes.  In some cases, Bible translators inserted notations that say that some manuscripts don’t include the words or verse, which creates doubt in the mind of the reader.

In Matthew 8:29, does your Bible remove that the demons called Jesus by name, identifying Him as the Son of God?
And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?”

In Matthew 25:13, does your Bible remove the text that speaks of Jesus return?
“Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh

In Luke, does your Bible imply that Joseph is the biological father of Jesus?
In Luke 2:43, the KJ shows that Joseph is not Jesus biological father when it says “Joseph and his(Jesus) mother”, which is peculiar and implies a separation. By replacing the text with “his parents”, it implies that Joseph is his father.

And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.”

In Luke 2:33, does your Bible imply that Joseph is the father of Jesus, which removes the virgin birth?
And Joseph and his mother marveled at those things which were spoken of him.”

In Luke 11:2-4, does your Bible remove important words in the Lord’s Prayer, including delivering us from Satan’s evil?
And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day  our daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.”

In Luke 9:56, does your Bible that Jesus came to Earth to save men’s lives?
For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village. “

In Luke 23:42, does your Bible the removed the thief’s profession of faith in Jesus as Lord?
Because the thief on the cross professed that Jesus was Lord (God), he was saved.
And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.”

In Acts 8:37, does your Bible have this verse where the Ethiopian Eunich professed his faith in Jesus Christ as God?
And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”

In Romans 14:10, does your Bible remove another proof-text that Jesus is God, and that Jesus will be our judge?
But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.“

In 1 Corinthians 15:47 does your Bible remove the title of ‘Lord’ from Jesus, the second man; removing His deity.
The first man is Adam, the second man is the Lord Jesus.
The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.”

In Galations 4:7, does your Bible remove that we are heirs of God ‘through Christ’?
Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.”

In Ephesians 3:9, does your Bible remove Jesus as the creator, which confirms that He is eternal and equal to God?
And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ.”

In Phillipians 4:13, does your Bible remove the source of our power, ‘Christ’?
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

In Colossians 1:14, does your Bible remove Jesus blood as our redemption for forgiveness of sins?
In whom we have redemption through His blood, [even] the forgiveness of sins

In 1 Timothy 3:16, does your Bible remove the statement that God was manifest in the flesh in Jesus?
This links God to all the things that Jesus accomplished on Earth, thereby equating Jesus with God in the flesh. We all appear in a body, so there’s nothing great about that.  But God manifesting Himself in the flesh, that’s supernatural.

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory

In John 16:16, does your Bible remove that Jesus was going to be with the Father, which verifies that He is God?
A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.”

In Revelation 1:11, does your Bible remove Jesus title of ‘Alpha and Omega, the first and the last’, meaning eternal?
Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches

Did the modern Bible versions take away all of the words and verses that validate Jesus deity?

Of course not, that would be too obvious.  But God warned us not to take away any words.

Every validation of Jesus deity is a witness to us and to the lost world.  So to say that it’s okay to remove some, because those same truths are found elsewhere in the Bible, is a wrong approach.

Your pastor may say that the Greek manuscripts don’t include these missing words or verses, but that is because Satan has infiltrated Seminaries and Bible schools, to cause them to use corrupt Greek Bibles which are also missing them.

Since these corrupt Greek Bibles are the foundation for the NIV and ESV, and they are both missing the words and verses, most Pastors never realize the deception.  Satan is the great deceiver and he has been very effective.

Keep up the good work and may God bless.

Thank you Bro Pete :-)

The New King James version has some translation issues, but it remains true to the text in every verse in this study. And it’s easier to read.

I’m so blessed. I’m going to share with many.

Thank you for your comment Japheth :-) May the Lord bless you as you share His truth with others!

I learned of this truth of the many false bible’s out there and how they deny the deity of Christ , and take out so many words, and I even approached the head Pastor of the church we had just started to go to, having just moved, because he used only the niv and taught from it..well, he stalled me for awhile and said he would get to me, but never did..needless to say my husband and I changed churches. I feel very strongly about this and it is so hard to find any ministry that doesn’t use these translations in some form or another. Almost every Christian book uses the niv for their scriptures and I wonder to myself why they couldn’t just use the King James instead. It’s almost like you say to yourself “could all these Christian people who know the word of God much better than me be wrong??”, and you start to doubt, but then I read an article like yours and I say Thank God someone is staying true to God’s word and I realize it is satan’s way of mind control. I wish more people would get this truth. Thank you for this article and many of them on your site. God Bless You!!

Thank you for your comment Christine :-) You make me smile, “Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

When the Lord woke me up about three years ago, this was the first deception that He showed me. I found out that Acts 8:37 was not in the NIV, so I asked a Pastor why, and he replied because it’s not in the Greek Bible.

It seemed like a legitimate answer, but then the Lord showed me that the Greek Bible that he is referring to is corrupt, as it is based on corrupt manuscripts.

So Pastors never see the deception, because at cemetery 😛 they learn from corrupt Greek Bibles and corrupt English Bibles, which are both missing the same words.

It was eye-opening to say the least, and depressing, because the great majority of ‘christians’ have been deceived by it.

Read the Satan’s Corrupted Manuscripts study to see the two paths of manuscripts, one pure and the other corrupted by Satan.

You can help others see the truth with this PDF that you can email or print, which let’s people compare their NIV, ESV, etc., to see what key words are missing. On the bottom of this page is a link to the PDF. Here’s the link to the PDF

The enemy is defeated by exposing its deceptions, so keep sharing the truth!

Grace and peace and love to you in Christ’s name!

Why would the Pilgrims flee England for Religious persecution, and use the KJV of the Bible when they were protesting against that very King? The KJV is not the Bible that was on the Mayflower with the Pilgrims.

Another thing. The KJV is the only Bible that replaces the word Passover with Easter.

Satan has corrupted ALL versions of the Bible, every single one of them. God’s word is preserved in the heart of man. To understand the teachings of the Bible, you must compare ALL of them. Satan may be able to corrupt God’s word, but he will never be able to hide God’s message.

The Latin Vulgate was the most corrupt ever and KJV is translated from this version. Key verses were changed to make it look like Kings had divine power, and that Men had authority over women.

Just wondering. Enjoy your Bible studies, but this one threw me for a loop???


David April 7, 2015 at 7:10 pm

Thank you for your comment Lori :-) I don’t believe that I said that the KJV was used by the Pilgrims. Maybe you assumed that I am KJ-only, which I am not. I use it in the study because like the Geneva Bible, it is based on the Masoretic Text and Textus Receptus. And because more people are familiar with it compared to the Geneva Bible.

I agree that the KJV translated Acts wrong to say Easter instead of Passover.

Keep learning and growing!

If your belief is that Messiah was a walking God-man, that appears to smack of polytheism. I don’t know, but the Trinity concept comes straight from Catholic church teachings according to my research. It is an incredibly confusing doctrine and Holy Father is not the author of confusion. I have prayed long and hard for truth on this subject, and always I am steered back to “Holy Father is One, always has been, always will be. After two and a half years research it always points to Catholic church teachings. Just because the protestants came out of her doesn’t mean they did away with all her teachings. Keeping the pagan holidays, for one. Not reinstituting the Sabbath for another. It seems to me that Messiah was resurrected into the Holy Father’s family to sit on His right side as our Holy High Priest and King, as Son of God, not God Himself.


David May 29, 2015 at 8:41 am

Thank you for your comment Gayle :-) I would not disagree with your explanation. I updated the study to remove that reference to the trinity. I agree that the Protestants did not identify all of the false teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, and since the Protestant Reformation, they have joined with her once again. Blessings to you!

Lizzie August 9, 2015 at 3:59 am

Hi! May Yahuah bless you! I was wondering if you have a study on the millennial reign, and if not if you could give a short overview on your understanding of Scripture pertaining to it? Thanks…


David August 9, 2015 at 3:47 pm

Thank you for your comment Lizzie :-) I do not have a study on that and really haven’t studied it too much. There are so many deceptions affecting christians beliefs today, that I just focus on those, and don’t really worry about what the future will be like. I’m sure it will be amazing!
