    Then I suggest you START with The Java Tutorials

    https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/

    The Java Tutorials are practical guides for programmers who want to use the Java programming language to create applications. They include hundreds of complete, working examples, and dozens of lessons. Groups of related lessons are organized into "trails". 
    The Java Tutorials primarily describe features in Java SE 8. For best results,  download JDK 8.
    

    If you are just starting then you have NO REASON to use an older version than the current one.
