Judgment on Israel’s Enemies
When the Assyrian comes into our land,
And when he treads in our palaces,
Then we will raise against him
Seven shepherds and eight princely men.
6 They shall 3waste with the sword the land of Assyria,
And the land of mNimrod at its entrances;
Thus He shall ndeliver us from the Assyrian,
When he comes into our land
And when he treads within our borders.
7 Then othe remnant of Jacob
Shall be in the midst of many peoples,
pLike dew from the Lord,
Like showers on the grass,
That 4tarry for no man
Nor 5wait for the sons of men.
Shall be among the Gentiles,
In the midst of many peoples,
Like a qlion among the beasts of the forest,
Like a young lion among flocks of sheep,
Who, if he passes through,
Both treads down and tears in pieces,
And none can deliver.
And all your enemies shall be 6cut off.
And destroy your tchariots.
And throw down all your strongholds.
And you shall have no usoothsayers.
13 vYour carved images I will also cut off,
And your sacred pillars from your midst;
You shall wno more worship the work of your hands;
14 I will pluck your 8wooden images from your midst;
Thus I will destroy your cities.
15 And I will xexecute vengeance in anger and fury
On the nations that have not 9heard.”
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.
