13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him opray. Is anyone cheerful? pLet him sing psalms. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, qanointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. rAnd if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 1Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. sThe effective, 2fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. 17 Elijah was a man twith a nature like ours, and uhe prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. 18 And he prayed vagain, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
