A Faithful Remnant

8 “Therefore hwait for Me,” says the Lord,

“Until the day I rise up 4for plunder;

My determination is to igather the nations

To My assembly of kingdoms,

To pour on them My indignation,

All My fierce anger;

All the earth jshall be devoured

With the fire of My jealousy.

9 “For then I will restore to the peoples ka pure 5language,

That they all may call on the name of the Lord,

To serve Him with one accord.

10 lFrom beyond the rivers of Ethiopia

My worshipers,

The daughter of My dispersed ones,

Shall bring My offering.

11 In that day you shall not be shamed for any of your deeds

In which you transgress against Me;

For then I will take away from your midst

Those who mrejoice in your pride,

And you shall no longer be haughty

In My holy mountain.

12 I will leave in your midst

nA meek and humble people,

And they shall trust in the name of the Lord.

13 oThe remnant of Israel pshall do no unrighteousness

qAnd speak no lies,

Nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth;

For rthey shall feed their flocks and lie down,

And no one shall make them afraid.”


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.
