The New King James Version of the Bible is a modern translation produced by Thomas Nelson, Inc in 1982, with the New Testament having been finished in 1979. It took a total of 7 years to complete. This version strives to, unlike many other modern translations, keep the same style as the King James Version. This version is largely based off the KJV, but replaces the archaic pronouns such as thee and thou with their modern counterparts, as well as modernizing other archaic language.
