Affected Teaching
This verse is a reoccurring benediction in the New Testament. For example, in 1 Corinthians 16:23. (1 Cor 16:23 KJV) The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.  There is no reason given as to why this verse has been removed and no reason given as to why it remains omitted. One of the greatest teachings in the Bible is the Grace of God whereby we are saved, so it would fit the belief system of the Gnostics and other unbelievers to remove it since so many false belief systems are rooted in works. Once again the King James Bible proves that it retains all the truth that God wrote in it and is not subjected to the whims of the unbeliever as the modern versions are.
