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.

David – Thank you for all of the work you’ve put into the site and providing us thirsty Jesus loving folks a fountain to drink from! I do have a couple of questions that I was wondering if you can answer for me. Are you aware that they have altered bibles, specifically KJV bibles and those alterations are retroactive? I have an authorized KJV of a John A. Hertel bible printed in 1945 and it clearly speaks of unicorns instead of ox, wolf and lamb instead of lion, stuffe, bottles, bank etc. It appears they have altered actual bibles in our possession that I’m certain would never speak to Jesus ordering someone to be slaughtered or slain. What do you make of this? I’m sure I know but most folks find it too far fetched so I will just wait for your reply! I’m still stuck on the origination of the new testament but I had researched it and came up with it basically originating from the Catholics and as we know they are antichrist. I’ve been researching for awhile and I never could figure out how they were manufacturing events and yet it is deemed prophecy! 🙂 I am absolutely certain they have altered things in our history. Let me know your thoughts.

God Bless!



David July 3, 2016 at 9:54 am

Sorry for the slow response. I am away of the supposed Mandela Effect. I’m not convinced. I can explain many of the supposed changes. As for Messiah declaring people come to be killed before Him, He was referring to the Jews who rejected Him as their Messiah and delivered Him up to be killed. Read His condemnation of them in Matthew 23, where He clearly said that all the righteous blood they had shed would be pouted out on them, on that generation. And indeed it was, as 1.1 million Jews died in and around Jerusalem from 66-70 A.D., from famine, pestilence, infighting, suicide, crucifixion and by the Roman sword. And indeed, the Jewish leaders were desolated before Messiah, who commanded the ‘people of the Prince’, the Roman army to desolate the Jews. Dead this study about the time of Great Tribulation in the first century Keep learning and growing in the faith! David


Bro April 29, 2016 at 1:02 am

Shallom. David, pls recheck Textus Receptus. Are you sure about its authenticity? Even Westcott & Hort not sure!
As for differences in Mat, Luke, etc, :
1. More words is not always better. Beware of what E Tov call “Harmonization”, which can be done with adding some words to a version of Book (Torah, Bible) from parts of other book (eg. add to Luke, from Gen, Mat, John) to make own version seem having more words (i.e. “complete”) than others.
2. They did not hide the truth, if the “missing”(?) words is available in other parts of Bible. (Not in Luke, exists in Mat).
May God bless you and show you the Truth.


Ricardo Carvalho October 26, 2015 at 9:59 am

My question was more in the direction if the buy / sell was literal or it was a symbol and if it is a symbol what it means…
I have problem when to consider a symbol and when to consider literal.
If I understood right, Revelation is symbolism therefore my question.
I know for fact that the Mormon church is buying farms in Brazil and other countries for they believe the world will run out of food.
If we believe they are controled by the Jesuits that makes sense… For after have caused the problem they will come and offer their “solution”….

Another question: are there any indication that the frogs getting out of the mouth of beast, false profet, etc refs. to the 3 WWs?



David October 26, 2015 at 10:23 am

Ricardo, Revelation is both symbolic and literal. It uses symbols, most of which are defined in the Old Testament, to foretell a literal fulfillment. So I believe that in the Jesuit’s One World Government, they will have a global currency, probably digital and maybe linked to the RFID chip or RF tattoo, that will only allow those who obey them to buy and sell using the currency.

I like your assessment of the three frogs. That is what I have concluded as it makes the most sense. WW I and II have caused the Jesuits to take control of large nations, and they have helped to create the Zionist state of Israel. WW III will lead to the One World Government, which is exactly what Scripture says the three frog-like spirits would do. Here is a new study on the three frog-like spirits

Blessings to you,


Ricardo Carvalho October 26, 2015 at 8:11 am

Hi David,
can you comment of the mark that allow / don’t allow people to buy or sell?
What is symbolizes?



David October 26, 2015 at 9:33 am

Great question Ricardo! The antichrist beast in Revelation 13 are the Popes of Rome. The Jesuit General, the Black Pope, took control of the Vatican in the late 18th century, and is using the Vatican and the White Pope to gather the world under his power.

The Jesuits control the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the International Bank of Settlements, the Federal Reserve Bank, and Central Banks in almost every country. In their New World Order, they will control the monetary system, to dictate who buys and sells.

I believe that worshiping the image of the beast is to revere/worship (mark on forehead) the Pope of Rome, who is the beast.

I believe that obeying the Pope of Rome is the mark on the right hand, indicating action.

When the Jesuit’s One World Government is formed, no doubt the Pope will declare commands for people to follow. It think that after WW III and after a worldwide financial collapse, all of which the Jesuits will cause, that people will be desperate for food, water, etc.; so they will be likely to obey the Pope.

As for the implementation of the system that determines who buys and sells, it could be an RFID chip or tattoo.

The main point is to not revere/worship the Pope, and not obey him.

I hope that helps. What is your perspective?



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!


gayle anderson May 27, 2015 at 1:26 pm

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! David


Sean July 3, 2016 at 9:55 am

Are you agreeing with Gayle here that Jesus is not God? If so, what was the point of this study?


David July 5, 2016 at 4:05 pm

The point of this study is the corruption of the modern Greek Bible and English Bibles. The truth about the relationship between the Father and Son is a separate matter.

If you want to know what I’ve found to be true about what Scripture declares about the relationship between the Father and Son, read this study.


Vic January 3, 2016 at 7:27 am

You got it Gayle. Believing the Roman church system to be antichrist should cause one to seriously consider the primary doctrine that was formulated and disseminated from it : deity of Jesus, Trinity, God-man, incarnation, etc.
A man claiming/claimed to be God and anti torah (lawless) is as very good summary of the Jesus promoted by Roman Catholics,and virtually all so called Christian denominations. Denying the true relationship that the man Jesus (come in flesh = human being) had with the Eternal Father is what Satan promotes as that is also the destiny of those that follow in his footsteps.


Lori April 7, 2015 at 3:39 pm

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!


Christine Brantley February 5, 2015 at 12:07 pm

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!!


David February 5, 2015 at 12:29 pm

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!


Japheth Opiyo August 13, 2014 at 3:41 pm

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


David August 13, 2014 at 3:57 pm

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


bro pete June 17, 2013 at 2:36 am

that is very smart and good words, it is very simple to me. Believe me I have checked out the niv ,sab and so on, all for nothing. Wounder why there are over
200,000 version, of the bible in the world, I guess it would be satan. Also a money maker for some.
Keep up the good work and may God bless.


David June 17, 2013 at 3:46 am

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.
