21 xThen they went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the ysynagogue and taught. 22 zAnd they were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
23 Now there was a man in their synagogue with an aunclean spirit. And he cried out, 24 saying, “Let us alone! bWhat have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did You come to destroy us? I cknow who You are—the dHoly One of God!”
25 But Jesus erebuked him, saying, 8 “Be quiet, and come out of him!” 26 And when the unclean spirit fhad convulsed him and cried out with a loud voice, he came out of him. 27 Then they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, 9“What is this? What new 1doctrine is this? For with authority He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him.” 28 And immediately His gfame spread throughout all the region around Galilee.
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.
