15 We athen who are strong ought to bear with the 1scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 bLet each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to 2edification. 3 cFor even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, d“The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me.” 4 For ewhatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the 3patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. 5 fNow may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, 6 that you may gwith one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
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.
