16 And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall ugo up from year to year to vworship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep wthe Feast of Tabernacles. 17 xAnd it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, on them there will be no rain. 18 If the family of yEgypt will not come up and enter in, zthey shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the Lord strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 19 This shall be the 9punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.
20 In that day a“HOLINESS TO THE LORD” shall be engraved on the bells of the horses. The bpots in the Lord’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar. 21 Yes, 1every pot in Jerusalem and Judah shall be holiness to the Lord of hosts. Everyone who sacrifices shall come and take them and cook in them. In that day there shall no longer be a cCanaanite din the house of 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.
