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.
That they all may call on the name of the Lord,
To serve Him with one accord.
10 lFrom beyond the rivers of Ethiopia
The daughter of My dispersed ones,
Shall bring My offering.
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.
nA meek and humble people,
And they shall trust in the name of the Lord.
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.
