Bible Verses Deleted From The NIV…

The sole purpose of this blog is to bring about awareness

of differences among translations.

7-16-2015  UPDATE!!! Since I first posted this blog!
What I have recently learned concerning these differences, many modern textual scholars believe these verses were not part of the original text of the New Testament. “These scribal additions are often found in late medieval manuscripts of the New Testament, but not in the manuscripts of the earlier centuries. “And because the King James Bible is based on later manuscripts, such verses became part of the Bible tradition in English-speaking lands.
1-21-2018 ANOTHER UPDATE!!! I found this online! The Codex Sinaiticus is one of the most important books in the world. Handwritten well over 1600 years ago, the manuscript contains the Christian Bible in Greek, including the oldest complete copy of the New Testament. After reviewing the text I found many of the verses listed were indeed not part of the original text.  But with that said I found many of the verses are in other areas of the bible.

May the Holy Spirit guide each of us to truth!

2 Tim 4:2-5 Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, 4 and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. 5 But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

Bible Verses Deleted
Since I first posted this blog I found I was mistaken, many of the verses shared were not included in the earlier writings. I have looked in the Codex Sinaiticus from the 4th century to update this blog.

Matthew 17:21 —  (Update!!! was not part of the original text)

“Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting”. (What I found closest to this verse in the Codex Sinaiticus is  Mark 9:29 And he said to them: This kind can come out by nothing but by prayer. Jesus didn’t mention FASTING was needed to cast out evil spirits.).

Matthew 18:11 —  (Update!!! was not part of the original text)

“For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.” (What I found closest to this verse in the Codex Sinaiticus is Luke 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

Matthew 23:14 —  (Update!!! it is verse 13 in the original text of the Codex Sinaiticus)

“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.”

Mark 7:16–(Update!!! was not part of the original text but similar verses were found in Matthew 11:15 He that has ears, let him hear. Also in Lk 14:35 Lk 8:8 Mt 13:9 Mt 13:43 Mk 4:9 Mk 4:23)

“If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.”

Mark 9:44Update!!! was not part of the original text. It was taken from Isaiah 66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh. (I don’t have a way of checking it.)

“Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”

Mark 9:46 — (Update!!! was not part of the original text.)

Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”

Mark 11:26 — (Update!!! was not part of the original text but a similar verse is found in Matthew 6:15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive yours.)

“But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.”

Mark 15:28 —  (Update!!! was not part of the original text but a similar verse is found in Luke 22:37 For I tell you that this Scripture must be fulfilled in Me: ‘And He was numbered with the transgressors.’ For what is written about Me is reaching its fulfillment.”)

“And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.”

Mark 16:9-20 Update!!! was not part of the original text (all 12 verses) — There is a line separating the last 12 verses of Mark from the main text. Right under the line it says: [The two most reliable early manuscripts do not have Mark 16:9-20] (NIV, 1978 ed.)

Luke 17:36 — (Update!!! was not part of the original text) Similar verses in Mt 24:40 Mt 24:41 Lk 17:34 Lk 17:35

“Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.”

Luke 23:17 — (Update!!! was not part of the original text)

“(For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)”

John 5:4Update!!! was not part of the original text  “For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.”

Acts 8:37Update!!! was not part of the original text “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.”

Acts 15:34 —  (Update!!! was not part of the original text) “Notwithstanding it pleased Silas to abide there still.”

Acts 24:7 — (Update!!! was not part of the original text)

“But the chief captain Lysias came upon us, and with great violence took him away out of our hands,”

Acts 28:29 —  (Update!!! was not part of the original text)

“And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.”

Romans 16:24 —  Update!!! was not part of the original text but found many more similar verses Rom 16:20 1 Cor 16:23 Gal 6:18 Phil 4:23 1 Thess 5:28 2 Thess 3:18 Philem 1:25 Rev 22:21

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”

I John 5:7 — Removed and placed in a footnote. The NIV says, “For there are three that testify:”  “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”(What the Codex Sinaiticus from the 4th century says in 1 John 5:7 For they that testify are three, 8 the Spirit, and the water, and the blood, and the three are one.)
