Peaceful Latter Days1 And it will come about in the a last days
That the b mountain of the house of the Lord
Will be established ▼
▼ Lit onas the chief of the mountains.
It will be raised above the hills,
And the d peoples will stream to it.
2 e Many nations will come and say,
f “Come and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord
And to the house of the God of Jacob,
That g He may teach us about His ways
And that we may walk in His paths.”
For h from Zion will go forth the law,
Even the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
3 And He will i judge between many peoples
And render decisions for mighty ▼
▼ Lit at a distancedistant nations.
Then they will hammer their swords k into plowshares
And their spears into pruning hooks;
Nation will not lift up sword against nation,
And never again will they ▼
▼ Lit learntrain for war.
4 Each of them will m sit under his vine
And under his fig tree,
With n no one to make them afraid,
For the o mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken.
5 Though all the peoples walk
Each in the p name of his god,
As for us, q we will walk
In the name of the r Lord our God forever and ever.
6 “In that day,” declares the Lord,
“I will assemble the s lame
And t gather the outcasts,
Even those whom I have afflicted.
7 “I will make the lame a u remnant
And the outcasts a strong nation,
And the v Lord will reign over them in Mount Zion
From now on and forever.
8 “As for you, ▼
▼ Heb Migdal-eder, x tower of the flock,
▼ Heb Ophel ofHill of the daughter of Zion,
To you it will come—
Even the z former dominion will come,
The kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.
9 “Now, why do you aa cry out loudly?
Is there no king among you,
Or has your ab counselor perished,
That agony has gripped you like a woman in childbirth?
10 ac “Writhe and labor to give birth,
Daughter of Zion,
Like a woman in childbirth;
For now you will ad go out of the city,
Dwell in the field,
And go to Babylon.
ae There you will be rescued;
af There the Lord will redeem you
From the hand of your enemies.
11 “And now ag many nations have been assembled against you
Who say, ‘Let her be polluted,
And let our eyes ▼
▼ Lit look ongloat over Zion.’
12 “But they do not ai know the thoughts of the Lord,
And they do not understand His purpose;
For He has gathered them like sheaves to the threshing floor.
13 “Arise and aj thresh, daughter of Zion,
For your horn I will make iron
And your hoofs I will make bronze,
That you may ak pulverize many peoples,
That you may al devote to the Lord their unjust gain
And their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.
