What is the word of God?

16"For God so loved the world that he his ONE and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 New International Version 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only BEGOTTEN Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.... show more 16"For God so loved the world that he his ONE and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 New International Version

16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only BEGOTTEN Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 King James Version

The King James Version has the word Begotten, thats not in the New International version. If the Bible is the absolute word of God which version is wrong? Do we burn all these wrong versions?

For those of you who understand that we need to read for meaning and not mistakes this question isn't for you, just for those who take the word of the Bible to be literal word for word. For them, do I need to throw away the one version or the other, or both, which version is really the word for word of God?
