Preaching to Cornelius’ Household
34 Then Peter opened his mouth and said: w“In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. 35 But xin every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is yaccepted by Him. 36 The word which God sent to the 3children of Israel, zpreaching peace through Jesus Christ—aHe is Lord of all—37 that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and bbegan from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: 38 how cGod anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who dwent about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, efor God was with Him. 39 And we are fwitnesses of all things which He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom 4they gkilled by hanging on a tree. 40 Him hGod raised up on the third day, and showed Him openly, 41 inot to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before by God, even to us jwho ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead. 42 And kHe commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify lthat it is He who was ordained by God to be Judge mof the living and the dead. 43 nTo Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, owhoever believes in Him will receive premission 5of sins.”
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.
