11 “On tthat day I will raise up
The 9tabernacle of David, which has fallen down,
And 1repair its damages;
I will raise up its ruins,
And rebuild it as in the days of old;
And all the Gentiles who are called by My name,”
Says the Lord who does this thing.
13 “Behold, wthe days are coming,” says the Lord,
“When the plowman shall overtake the reaper,
And the treader of grapes him who sows seed;
xThe mountains shall drip with sweet wine,
And all the hills shall flow with it.
14 yI will bring back the captives of My people Israel;
zThey shall build the waste cities and inhabit them;
They shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them;
They shall also make gardens and eat fruit from them.
aAnd no longer shall they be pulled up
From the land I have given them,”
Says the Lord your God.
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.
