"For behold, ain those days and at that time, When I brestore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will agather all the nations And bring them down to the bvalley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will center into judgment with them there On behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, Whom they have dscattered among the nations; And they have edivided up My land.
"They have also acast lots for My people, bTraded a boy for a harlot And sold a girl for wine that they may drink.
"Moreover, what are you to Me, O aTyre, Sidon and all the regions of bPhilistia? Are you rendering Me a recompense? But if you do recompense Me, swiftly and speedily I will creturn your recompense on your head.
"Since you have ataken My silver and My gold, brought My precious treasures to your temples,
and sold the asons of Judah and Jerusalem to the Greeks in order to remove them far from their territory,
behold, I am going to aarouse them from the place where you have sold them, and return your recompense on your head.
"Also I will asell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the sons of Judah, and they will sell them to the bSabeans, to a distant nation," for the Lord has spoken.
aProclaim this among the nations: bPrepare a war; crouse the mighty men! Let all the soldiers draw near, let them come up!
aBeat your plowshares into swords And your pruning hooks into spears; bLet the weak say, "I am a mighty man."
aHasten and come, all you surrounding nations, And gather yourselves there. Bring down, O Lord, Your bmighty ones.
Let the nations be aroused And come up to the avalley of Jehoshaphat, For there I will sit to bjudge All the surrounding nations.
aPut in the sickle, for the bharvest is ripe. Come, ctread, for the dwine press is full; The vats overflow, for their ewickedness is great.
aMultitudes, multitudes in the bvalley of decision! For the cday of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
The asun and moon grow dark And the stars lose their brightness.
The Lord aroars from Zion And butters His voice from Jerusalem, And the cheavens and the earth tremble. But the Lord is a drefuge for His people And a estronghold to the sons of Israel.
Then you will aknow that I am the Lord your God, Dwelling in Zion, My bholy mountain. So Jerusalem will be choly, And dstrangers will pass through it no more.
And in that day The amountains will drip with sweet wine, And the hills will bflow with milk, And all the cbrooks of Judah will flow with water; And a dspring will go out from the house of the Lord To water the valley of Shittim.
Egypt will become a waste, And Edom will become a desolate wilderness, Because of the aviolence done to the sons of Judah, In whose land they have shed innocent blood.
But Judah will be ainhabited forever And Jerusalem for all generations.
And I will aavenge their blood which I have not avenged, For the Lord dwells in Zion.
