4 “For behold, athe day is coming,
Burning like an oven,
And the day which is coming shall burn them up,”
Says the Lord of hosts,

For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet
On the day that I do this,”
Says the Lord of hosts.

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.
