Prophecies against Neighboring Nations1 The ▼
▼ Or oracleburden of the word of the Lord is against the land of Hadrach, with b Damascus as its resting place (for the eyes of men, especially of all the tribes of Israel, are toward the Lord), 2 And c Hamath also, which borders on it;
d Tyre and e Sidon ▼
▼ Or becausethough ▼
▼ I.e. they think they arethey are h very wise.
3 For Tyre built herself a i fortress
And j piled up silver like dust,
And k gold like the mire of the streets.
4 Behold, the Lord will l dispossess her
And cast her wealth into the sea;
And she will be m consumed with fire.
5 Ashkelon will see it and be afraid.
Gaza too will writhe in great pain;
Also Ekron, for her expectation has been confounded.
Moreover, the king will perish from Gaza,
And Ashkelon will not be inhabited.
6 And a ▼
▼ Lit bastard willmongrel race will dwell in o Ashdod,
And I will cut off the pride of the Philistines.
7 And I will remove their blood from their mouth
And their detestable things from between their teeth.
Then they also will be a remnant for our God,
And be like a ▼
▼ Or chiefclan in Judah,
And Ekron like a Jebusite.
8 But I will camp around My house ▼
▼ Or as a guard, so that none will go back and forthbecause of an army,
Because of r him who passes by and returns;
And s no oppressor will pass over them anymore,
For now I have seen with My eyes.
9 t Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your u king is coming to you;
He is ▼
▼ Or vindicated and victorious, w just and x endowed with salvation,
y Humble, and mounted on a donkey,
Even on a z colt, the ▼
▼ Lit son of a female donkeyfoal of a donkey.
10 I will ab cut off the chariot from Ephraim
And the ac horse from Jerusalem;
And the ad bow of war will be cut off.
And He will speak ae peace to the nations;
And His af dominion will be from sea to sea,
And from the ▼
▼ I.e. EuphratesRiver to the ends of the earth.
Deliverance of Judah and Ephraim11 As for you also, because of the ah blood of My covenant with you,
I have set your ai prisoners free from the ▼
▼ Lit cistern in which there is no waterwaterless pit.
12 Return to the ▼
▼ Or Stronghold, al stronghold, O prisoners ▼
▼ Lit of the hopewho have the an hope;
This very day I am declaring that I will restore ao double to you.
13 For I will ap bend Judah ▼
▼ Lit for Meas My bow,
I will fill the bow with Ephraim.
And I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O ar Greece;
And I will make you like a as warrior’s sword.
14 Then the Lord will appear at over them,
And His au arrow will go forth like lightning;
And the Lord ▼
▼ Heb YHWH, usually rendered LordGod will blow the aw trumpet,
And will march in the ax storm winds of the south.
15 ay The Lord of hosts will defend them.
And they will az devour and trample on the ba sling stones;
And they will drink and be bb boisterous as with wine;
And they will be filled like a sacrificial basin,
Drenched like the bc corners of the altar.
16 And the Lord their God will bd save them in that day
As the flock of His people;
For they are as the stones of a be crown,
▼ Or Displayed overSparkling in His land.
17 For what ▼
▼ Lit goodness, bh comeliness and bi beauty will be ▼
▼ Lit histheirs!
Grain will make the young men flourish, and new wine the virgins.
