Textus Receptus – Traditional Text

ο δε ιησους σπλαγχνισθεις εκτεινας την χειρα ηψατο αυτου και λεγει αυτω θελω καθαρισθητι


Hort-Westcott – Critical Text

και σπλαγχνισθεις εκτεινας την χειρα αυτου ηψατο και λεγει αυτω θελω καθαρισθητι


Corrupted Manuscripts

If you notice in the Textus Receptus the name of Jesus (ιησους) is included and it is found in both the Byzantine Text and Stephanus 1550 A.D.  When we look at the Hort-Westcott text, we will see that the name of Jesus is omitted in the Greek which means the translators can use the proper name or replace it with a pronoun “he” like the LEB does.


Affected Teaching

The word “splanchnistheis” in the Greek is translated “compassion” all 12 times it is used in the New Testament.  It carries with it the meaning of “have compassion, feel sympathy, or have mercy.”  I remember when the 1984 NIV was being revised in 2011 by Biblica (formerly International Bible Society) and the President and CEO of Biblica made the following statement, "And we'll make sure we get it right this time," Here is how bad they still did.


(1984 NIV) “Filled with Compassion….”

(2011 NIV) “Jesus was indignant….”


After they revised their version, they went from correct to incorrect, so how did they get it right?  THEY DIDN’T!


Here are the definitions of the words used by the modern versions above from the 1913 Websters.  Quite different than the Greek word in the Textus Receptus.


Indignant - Affected with indignation; wrathful; passionate; irate; feeling wrath, as when a person is exasperated by unworthy or unjust treatment, by a mean action, or by a degrading accusation.


Incensed - Angered; enraged.  (2) Represented as enraged, as any wild creature depicted with fire issuing from mouth and eyes.


Once again the modern versions take a Greek word with a specific meaning and translation throughout the New Testament and apply their own meaning to it.  The worst part about it is that the word is translated with a definition that is completely opposite of what the word means.  This is why the modern versions are so dangerous because you never know when they have taken a word and translated it wrongly.  They do this so they can get a new copyright because to gain a copyright you must have a certain amount of changes, so they make changes not even concerning themselves with your spiritual growth.
