7 Therefore hreceive one another, just ias Christ also received 4us, to the glory of God. 8 Now I say that jJesus Christ has become a 5servant to the circumcision for the truth of God, kto confirm the promises made to the fathers, 9 and lthat the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy, as it is written:
m“For this reason I will confess to You among the Gentiles,
And sing to Your name.”
n“Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people!”
o“Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles!
Laud Him, all you peoples!”
p“There shall be a root of Jesse;
And He who shall rise to reign over the Gentiles,
In Him the Gentiles shall hope.”
13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all qjoy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
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.
