Reviewed by (Terry Slone, Trussville, AL, United States) - I recently added the New King James Version Bible to my e-Sword collection. I find the NKJV a good addition to the other Bible versions I have. I find e-Sword extremely helpful in preparing Sunday School lessons and occasional Sunday Worship and Wednesday Worship messages. I love being able to quickly compare verses between different translations and the ability to view commentaries from renown Bible scholars like Scofield, Henry, Faust, McGee, Guzik, MacArthur, and many others. There are so many great features in e-Sword that make lesson preparation so much easier. I was very happy when e-Sword for Android was released! The NKJV is a great addition to the resources I already have in e-Sword! Thank you for making this program available for free with so many free resources. The optional ones are a great value as well! Keep up the great work!.

The prose and grammar of the translation is what has always drawn me to it. So I basically can’t do any bible study without using the Bible translation that am most accustomed to.

Reviewed by (Marcia McCance, Stanley, North Carolina, US) - The NKJV is an excellent Bible! It is very readable and uses modern verb forms (you and him, rather than thee and thou) without straying too far from the elegant structure and feel of reading the KJV.

thee and thou
Reviewed by (Keith Wood, Victoria, TX, US) - I have a collection of bibles because I love to compare the different translations to try to capture the original meaning. I cut my teeth on the King James as did my generation and have seen many different ones come out. The Good News testament was one of the first popular modern language translations that hit the market in the 60's. Later in life, God would call me into ministry, and my thirst became very real. Dakes became my favorite, but that was more commentary out of the King James, then I attended a church that the pastor used the NKJ. I was hooked, the rhythm of the KJ without the thees and Thous. A Modern translation that closely resembled the KJ without changing the text like so many others do. Acts 17:11c
Reviewed by (Cheryl Wallace, Marysville, WA, United States) - Thank You for making NKJV available! It is my favorite version. I used the Prayer of Jabez to help me decide what version I would use. It is because it is the only version that says 'that I will not cause pain'. All other versions say 'that I will not be in pain'.
I don't mind paying the price to follow Jesus, but I do not want to cause others to be in pain. So this was the perfect version for me!
Again Thank You!

Reviewed by (Peter Bullous, Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, United Kingdom) - I have a New King James Bible (hardback) and as a frequent user of eSword I needed to have it on that also - so it's really useful as I can word-search faster than I can using my hardback Bible's concordance. I purchased the NIV version as well, because that's what our church uses (The Salvation Army).
Reviewed by (Perry Richerson, Belvidere, il, United States) - I grew up on KJV and this is still my go-to version. New King James Version was bought because I was looking for a version that did not have the "thee's" and "thou's" in it. I teach a Bible study in my home, and the younger generation was telling me that those words were distracting their understanding of what I was reading to them. I tried several versions of the Bible, and I like NKJV best for me to teach from.
I rate it 5 stars.

I refer to the original Greek frequently, and while as with any translation there are words/phrases that perhaps could have been translated better, I find NKJV to be faithful and accurate.

NKJV vs.other versions
Reviewed by (George Shrader, Brownsville, TX, US) - I am not a pastor, only a Christian, and for over 48 years I have studied God's Word in over 27 versions of the Bible and until the New King James Version was published no other version was close enough to the original Greek to satisfy my studies, except the KJV. I challenge every student of the Bible to read the NKJV, it is excellent, and I'm sure you will agree, unless you are looking for a version that "fits" your religion. True the NKJV is copyrighted, like all the others except the old KJV, and they are protected by our severe federal copyright laws that carry a heavy punishment if broken; that being the case, I prefer to stay away from copyrighted versions, but I enjoy the excellent NKJV.

The Magesty of God’s Word
Reviewed by (Constance Owen, Greenwood, Indiana, US) - Thank you for making the New King James Version available on the E-sword app. This version maintains the dignity and magesty of God’s Word while removing some of the stilted, outdated language of the old King James Version. There is a very wonderfully talented Malaysian believer who uses the New King James Version to write and perform Scriptural worship music. Her name is Esther Mui. By using this version of the Bible, I can memorize these Scriptural songs and God’s Word. What a great blessing! The NKJV so awesome and majestic when read aloud or sung, especially the Psalms and the Prophets. Flooding the ear-gates and eye-gates with God’s Word is such a pleasure using the NKJV. Hopefully there will be more public proclamation of the Scripture as a regular part of our day and also during the corporate church worship hour. I am grateful for the time and labor spent to put the NKJV at my fingertips. May God bless His Word as it travels from E-sword out through the words, music, and deeds prompted by using the NKJV.

In the past two years, He has brought me into Prison ministry. I am able to share my Lord over the Word through a Monday night Bible Study and bi-monthly in seminars that teach the Word, in truth and in application.
While I grew up with the KJV, I find that the updating of the English in the New King James Version improves comprehension in the men I work with.
The electronic NKJV has made preparation for these opportunities so much simpler that I am able to spend more time digging deeper into the Word, with the men, than in laboring to republish verses from the NKJV.
Thank you so much for having this resource available, and at such a reasonable price.

Reviewed by (Michael Driskill, Novato, CA, USA) - I came to know the Lord Jesus on Mother's Day, 1975. My first bible was the King James Version, from which I memorized quite a few verses over the first 10 years. However, I became tired of the thees and thous and bought a RSV. Since 1981 I decided to use a variation of bibles, with a Strong's Concordance, to teach a bible study as thoroughly as possible. The New King James Version, when compared to the several I have used, is a significant improvement, is written in plain English, and is so much more parallel to the other versions. I like the fact that E-Sword for Mac was made available and that this app opens up wide the doors of the universe to Knowing, Loving, and Serving God, without being confused by language difficulties. Way to go E-Sword.... :)

Reviewed by (Anthony Maduekwe, Dakar, - -, Senegal) - I write a lot of materials and quote from the Bible a lot too but find that the old King James version sounds way to offish to young readers or listeners and in my opinion the Good News version does not get certain messages across the way I want it. The new King James version helps me make that connection and I have found it very useful in my works so far. I use mostly the electronic version so I cannot comment on the printing but generally I find it a very useful Bible version.

Saves time searching through the bible. Students take the papers home with them for further study or information. Wonderful tool, wonderful service. Thanks
NKJV FOR E-Sword is wonderful!
Reviewed by (Mary Ellen Roit, Groton, CT, US) - I have been reading KJV all my life and have memorized many verses, but when newer word for word translations came out, I began searching for something more current. I went thru several translations and discovered that not only had I not found the translation I was searching for, but that I was forgetting many familiar references. That disturbed me. So I began searching for a copy of the New King James Version that would be appropriate for me. When I did find one, I began using it in my quiet time. My fear had been that it had become too modern. What a delight to discover that is still has the flow and poetry of the original KJV. So, since I use e-Sword extensively for my Bible studies, I purchased the NKJV for e-Sword and immediately included it in my parallel Bible, next to the KJV. I am delighted to find that there are few verses that have changed so much that I have to learn them all over and that it is so easy to make my notes in the editor. Very soon I will be comfortable to drop the KJV from my parallel Bible completely while still having it available for Strong's numbers in my research work. Many thanks to e-StudySource for the NKJV for e-Sword. I feel at home again as I study the Word. May God continue to bless you richly,

Reviewed by (Bob Pezold, Lady Lake, FL, US) - My first experience with NKJV, and my first e-version experience for Bible study. I'm finding it a good addition to my resources, and prefer it to the KJV for obvious reasons. Using it along with NIV, NASB and The Message. I'm finding that the translation takes some liberties in adding words (not included in the original Greek) - my preference is still the NASB (for accuracy). I like the tool (e-Sword) version a lot; it really facilitates quick comparison study. I think it's an excellent value and would recommend it to friends.
Reviewed by (Jim Wane, Zillah, WA, US) - I have given this 5 stars for ease of reading. I am an OLD KJV reader and have studied the old KJV. Personally I miss the Thees and Thous, but that is me. Changing from the old English into modern day, how can you tell who is being addressed? Is the pronoun singular or plural? Despite this, I will continue to read from the NKJV and use the KJV when I need to clarify.
e-Sword is the best

Good for what it does
Reviewed by (Thanos Kiriakidis, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) - My preferred Bible translation of choice is the NKJV. This version for the eSword allows me to easily do so. What I really like about it is that it allows me run the NKJV in parallel mode alongside the Greek with Strong's reference which I have enhanced by downloading for a small fee AMg's complete word study plus any other translation that my friends and colleagues use. I could only give this version four stars because it lacks a Strong's concordance of its own so I also have to run the KJV with Strong's concordance in parallel mode when doing my word studies. But for what this version does do - it does it very well. I do not find it buggy whatsoever

A lot of modern translations have the text in a paragraph form but the NKJV does not which makes finding a particular verse easier at times. But I would like to say a few words about E-Sword in general. I use E-Sword to help prepare lessons and to locate verses all the time. I find E-Sword to be one of the best tools I have when it comes to finding verses and preparing lessons. It is also easy to copy and paste verses into my lessons. I have many translations and like to compare them with each other but I find myself using the NKJV the most. An excellent translation in my opinion.

My computer recently crashed and I lost the programs upon which I have depended. As newer versions of the Bible have emerged, I try to keep an open mind to them, choosing my own method of comparing translations. The New King James Bible has, for me, become am indispensable tool for study. Some of the newer versions go as far as removing entire passages of scripture and relegating them to the margins to explain them away. The New King James Version is the one from which I preach and give to new candidates for ministry. I cannot be without it.

Bible Student Blend
Reviewed by (Darrel Yontz, Albuquerque, NM, US) - The New King James is a blend of old and new language. While the King James offers the standard for years, the NKJ offers the KJ translation without antiquated words in it. It is the perfect blend for preaching and teaching to older people that prefer the more formal translation and the younger people who need understanding. I generally preach from the NKJ for this reason and that as people hear the same passages read from the same translation, they begin to remember more.

Slightly less than I expected
Reviewed by (Steve Scott, Herndon, VA, US) - The hard copy version I'd seen had, for instance in Song of Solomon, divisions and headings which identified the supposed speaker of given verses, such as "The Shulamite," "The Beloved," etc., which made the book much easier to comprehend. I know such things may vary from publisher to publisher, but I somehow expected to find this in the e-version.
I gave this five stars because it seems to be a faithful translation, and because I use e-Sword daily, including at church, and having the different versions readily available lets me follow along no matter which version a teacher may reference.
(While the NKJV is noticeably more like the KJV, for reading aloud with my wife each morning I have found the ESV better lends itself to speaking.)

Although I like having many translations for my studies both inside and outside of my home. My church uses the NKJV but my college uses NIV. Having both helps for memory verses and such.
I love eSword for both having many free translations, a scripture memory tool, and other awesome tools; plus it too is FREE! How cool is that?!
My only negative points on the NKJV purchase are:
Cost: A bit high priced for an eBook download in my opinion. However, I did receive a coupon code which knocked it down a couple bucks. I just think, being a download, it could have included another eBook of some kind. Like a the NIV bundle did at the same price.

Reviewed by (Jim King, Jenks, OK, US) - After using many different Bible versions over the years, I now believe that the texts/manuscripts used for the KJV and NKJV are the most reliable. I appreciate the poetic majesty of the KJV but let's be real, it is harder for younger readers to understand. Even I have trouble with some of the archaic language and I'm 61. The NKJV speaks the same way I do, so it is my go-to translation. Not that it's perfect, but to me it's the best choice in the English language.
I've been using PC Study Bible for years and just began using e-Sword this year and I love it. It's faster and easier to work with. The only problem I have found with the NKJV addon is that some of the words which should be in italics are not.

I would occasionally try to read it again but until I purchased the New King James Version I could not maintain interest in my Bible study.
NKJV has all the fullness of the KJV but it is written wthout all the Old English thees and thous. The New King James does however keep the content clearly similar to the King James, which for me adds a richness of Scripture not available from the more modern translations of the Bible.

Some Good, Little Bad
Reviewed by (George Koll, Walla Walla, WA, US) -
One of the great things about the NKJV is that it preserves some of the vocabulary on which bilbe-based thology in the English-speaking world has been based such as "Tribulation," "atonement," etc. Thus one can recognize, for example, the "great tribulation" vs. something like "the great distress." One of the bad things about the NKJV is that is also retains some of the inconsistency of the KJV such as "eternal life" in John 3:15 and "everlasting life" in John 3:16 which can have people debating the difference between "eternal" and "everlasting" whereas in the Greek the phrase is identifical in each. No doubt the translators feared that any change there would be perceived by unifmored, ultra-conservatives as tampering with the word of God when, in fact, as they sometimes did according to what they considered the best English style of the time, the KJV translators actually tampered with the worrd of God at times by using two English synonyms for the same Greek word or phrase in the same context. Also, the Greek text underlying the NKJV, although I will concede that the differences between this and the best Greek text are pretty inconsequential thologically, is not the best though typically the differences between their text and the Majority Test and the Nestle/United Bible Society text are footnoted. So, the good thing is that the NKJV continues a tradition and the bad thing is that where they might have made some improvements they continued the tradition of errors. sometimes they correct the situation in one case and, apparently is something like a hymn has been based on the KJV translation, they will leave the errror. (See what the translators do with "diadem" vs. "Crown" in the portions of the Revelation where the word is unquestionablly "diadem," though, granted, not everyone is aware of what a diadem is and what it may signify, i.e., imperial or absolute power -- see Rev. 12:3' 13:1;, and 19:12 where the Greek is the same in each case though only translated correctly in the first case. It might have been better to either correct all occurrences or to simply leave it "crown" in each case. Still, it is a translation that continues much of our English theological language and this is a valuable thing.

Top notch as usual
Reviewed by (Kendall Combs, Hazard, Kentucky, US) - NKJV just another of the top notch attachments for E-Sword. I have people tell me about different computer Bible sources on occasion, but I have no intention of ever using anything other than E-Sword. I have used it for years. The ease of use for studying scripture, comparing versions right on screen, sermon preparation, topic studies,and just so much more, make it my only choice for a computer Bible source. We might also add that the majority of the sources are free,when all other online Bibles are purchased products. How can we really compare any online Bible to e-sword?

The pastor of the church I attend recomended thatt all of us download your programs. I / we will be using them for home study, and to get a correct understanding of GODS word. The programs are easy to follow and understand allowing us who are non professional bible scholors to rightly study and divide GODS word, so that we can truly understand what has been put before us. I am a firm believer that the truth in GODS word has for the most part been lost in doctrines of the churches and bad teaching and forced opinions of preachers, teachers and evangelists over many years and we as the inherent children of GOD especially in the end times need to get a clear and precise understanding of GODS will.

Whilst we all love the KJV we have to admit that reading it in this day and age does make it hard going, so with this update into modern English we get all the wonders and joy of the old KJV, but now in words that all can understand and not have to scratch their heads about. With the words of Christ also highlighted in red, and the extra study that can be utilised through the e-Sword Bible study tool the NKJV just has to be on your list.

I have been aware for years of the qualitative difference in Bible versions. More specifically, I refer to the omissions that are commonly found in modern Bible versions, e.g.,missing key passages; missing names of Christ and titles of Diety. I am now teaching a Sunday school class which presents the opportunity for enabling student insight into the aforementioned reality. Of course this opportunity presents itself through the necessity to read and study Scripture. E-Sword has enabled me to place the same Bible verse from several different Bibles into columns for side by side comparison. The ability to set this up and print it out for perusal is of inestimable value as a teaching tool! Naturally, as a first step, I was in need of the best Bibles, in my view, for comparison. eStudySource has an excellent selection of electronic Bibles at reasonable cost.
A MUST Have
Reviewed by (Ian Anning, Mareeba, Queensland, Australia) - If you are looking for an easy to read Bible that is as close to the original King James content as possible, then this is it. I have had hours of reading and revelations from this Bible version. Hours of searching for Bible scripture has also been hugely reduced, with the added bonus of copying and pasting those scriptural gems into my messages, which has also become a time saving blessing. My hat goes off to the e-Sword team for putting such a wonderful program together, and making it available to the public.

So far he is stuck on the Jerusalem text while good sure changes the sense of things which this version-NKJV-gets it right all the time as far as I can tell from multiple types of commentaries and other scholars who study and write on this.

e-Sword Helps Teach Cross-culturally
Reviewed by (Dennis Steinmetz, Punta Gorda, NA, Belize) -
Much of the teaching I do is cross-cultural, in fact, across 2-3 cultures simultaneously; and Bibles are in short supply, so using "eStudySource's" NKJV straight-up, or copied to power point slides; and then projected on a sheet tied up, (oftentimes) in a thatched church allows all of my students to be on the same page. Accents and vocabulary deficiencies can foment confusion, and this helps to eliminate this confusion as well. Literacy varies greatly, and this method gives my students an opportunity to practice reading skills as well. Seeing and hearing the same Word helps ensure comprehension, and increase interest. The program works on my computer without a hitch (Windows 7) and allows me to set up quickly with a minimum of equipment. I can print hand-outs complete with commentary easily, too. We can quickly go to the Hebrew or Greek using Vines Dictionary to explain or define nebulous concepts if unanticipated questions or situations arise. This helps to keep group study relevant. With the NKJV I can more easily prepare my lessons. And as long as I have my laptop I can study anywhere, knowing that my dictionary and commentaries are with me. (Quiet time in the bush is very conducive to hearing His voice.) Only the Holy Spirit is a greater help to me in my studies and my teaching.
