Joy in God’s Faithfulness

14 sSing, O daughter of Zion!

Shout, O Israel!

Be glad and rejoice with all your heart,

O daughter of Jerusalem!

15 The Lord has taken away your judgments,

He has cast out your enemy.

tThe King of Israel, the Lord, uis in your midst;

You shall 6see disaster no more.

16 In that day vit shall be said to Jerusalem:

“Do not fear;

Zion, wlet not your hands be weak.

17 The Lord your God xin your midst,

The Mighty One, will save;

yHe will rejoice over you with gladness,

He will quiet you with His love,

He will rejoice over you with singing.”

18 “I will gather those who zsorrow over the appointed assembly,

Who are among you,

To whom its reproach is a burden.

19 Behold, at that time

I will deal with all who afflict you;

I will save the alame,

And gather those who were driven out;

I will appoint them for praise and fame

In every land where they were put to shame.

20 At that time bI will bring you back,

Even at the time I gather you;

For I will give you 7fame and praise

Among all the peoples of the earth,

When I return your captives before your eyes,”

Says the Lord.


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.
