and gDamascus is its resting place.
and on all the tribes of Israel,1
2 hand on Hamath also, which borders on it,
3 Tyre has built herself ka rampart
and lheaped up silver like dust,
and strike down mher power on the sea,
and nshe shall be devoured by fire.
5 oAshkelon shall see it, and be afraid;
7 I will take away qits blood from its mouth,
and rits abominations from between its teeth;
sit too shall be a remnant for our God;
it shall be like ta clan in Judah,
8 Then uI will encamp at my house as a guard,
vso that none shall march to and fro;
wno oppressor shall again march over them,
xfor now I see with my own eyes.
9 yRejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
bhumble and mounted on a donkey,
10 cI will cut off the chariot from Ephraim
and dthe war horse from Jerusalem;
and ehe shall speak peace to the nations;
fhis rule shall be from sea to sea,
and from gthe River to the ends of the earth.
11 As for you also, because of hthe blood of my covenant with you,
12 Return to your stronghold, O kprisoners of hope;
today I declare that lI will restore to you double.
13 For mI have bent Judah as my bow;
against your sons, nO Greece,
and ohis arrow will go forth like lightning;
pthe Lord God will sound the trumpet
15 The Lord of hosts swill protect them,
and vthey shall drink and roar as if drunk with wine,
drenched wlike the corners of the altar.
as xthe flock of his people;
for ylike the jewels of a crown
17 zFor how great is his goodness, and how great his beauty!
aGrain shall make the young men flourish,
