11 vNow I saw heaven opened, and behold, wa white horse. And He who sat on him was called xFaithful and True, and yin righteousness He judges and makes war. 12 zHis eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. aHe 5had a name written that no one knew except Himself. 13 bHe was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called cThe Word of God. 14 dAnd the armies in heaven, eclothed in 6fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. 15 Now fout of His mouth goes a 7sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And gHe Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. hHe Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And iHe has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:
jKING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS
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.
