Deliverance for Judah1 The concern of the word of the lord over Israel, says the lord, the one stretching out the heaven, and laying the foundation for the earth, and shaping the spirit of man in him. 2 Behold, I appoint Jerusalem as thresholds for shaking off all the peoples round about, and in Judea there will be an encompassing about against Jerusalem. 3 And it will be in that day I will appoint Jerusalem as a stone being trampled on by all the nations. Every one trampling her with mocking shall mock, and [6shall be assembled 7against 8her 1all 2the 3nations 4of the 5earth]. 4 In that day, says the lord almighty, I will strike every horse with astonishment, and its rider in ranting. But over the house of Judah I will open my eyes, and all the horses of the peoples I will strike with blindness. 5 And [4shall say 1the 2commanders of thousands 3of Judah] in their hearts, We shall find ourselves of the ones dwelling Jerusalem in the lord almighty their God. 6 In that day I will make the commanders of thousands of Judah as a firebrand of fire among the wood, and as a lamp of fire among stubble; and they shall devour from the right, and from the left all the peoples round about. And Jerusalem shall dwell yet according to herself in Jerusalem. 7 And the lord shall deliver the tents of Judah as at the beginning, so that [3should not 4magnify 5their boasting 1the house 2of David], and the haughtiness of the ones dwelling in Jerusalem over Judah. 8 And it will be in that day the lord will shield over the ones dwelling Jerusalem. And it will be the one being weak among them in that day will be as David, and the house of David as the house of God, as the angel of the lord before them. 9 And it shall be in that day I will seek to lift away all the nations, the ones coming against Jerusalem. 10 And I will pour out upon the house of David, and upon the ones dwelling Jerusalem a spirit of favor and compassion. And they shall look to me, because they treated me despitefully; and they shall beat over him with a beating of the breast, as over a beloved one; and they shall grieve with grief as over the first-born. 11 In that day [2shall be magnified 1beating the breast] in Jerusalem, as the beating of the breast over the pomegranate grove in the plain having been cut down. 12 And [3shall beat the chest 1the 2land], according to tribes by tribes; the tribe of the house of David by itself, and their wives by themselves; the tribe of the house of Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves; 13 the tribe of the house of Levi by itself, and their wives by themselves; the tribe of Simeon by itself, and their wives by themselves. 14 All the tribes being left behind, a tribe by itself, and their wives by themselves.
