17 Your eyes will see the King in His rbeauty;
They will see the land that is very far off.
s“Where is the scribe?
Where is he who weighs?
Where is he who counts the towers?”
19 tYou will not see a fierce people,
uA people of obscure speech, beyond perception,
Of a 5stammering tongue that you cannot understand.
20 vLook upon Zion, the city of our appointed feasts;
Your eyes will see wJerusalem, a quiet home,
A tabernacle that will not be taken down;
Nor will any of its cords be broken.
A place of broad rivers and streams,
In which no 6galley with oars will sail,
Nor majestic ships pass by
22 (For the Lord is our zJudge,
The Lord is our aLawgiver,
bThe Lord is our King;
He will save us);
They could not strengthen their mast,
They could not spread the sail.
Then the prey of great plunder is divided;
The lame take the prey.
cThe people who dwell in it will be forgiven their iniquity.
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.
