18 “And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” says the Lord God, “that My fury will show in My face. 19 For fin My jealousy gand in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: h‘Surely in that day there shall be a great 5earthquake in the land of Israel, 20 so that ithe fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. jThe mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’ 21 I will kcall for la sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord God. m“Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22 And I will nbring him to judgment with opestilence and bloodshed; pI will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, qgreat hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23 Thus I will magnify Myself and rsanctify Myself, sand I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.” ’
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.
