2 And Hamath also shall border thereby;

Tyrus, and Zidon, though it be very wise. 3 And Tyrus did build herself a strong hold,

And heaped up silver as the dust,
And fine gold as the mire of the streets.

Behold, the Lord will cast her oul,
And he will smite her power in the sea;

And she shall be devoured with fire. 5 Ashkelon shall see it, and fear;

Gaza also shall see it, and be very sorrowful,
And Ekron; for her expectation shall be ashamed ;
And the king shall perish from Gaza,

And Ashkelon shall not be inhabited. 6 And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod,

And I will cut off the pride of the Philistines.
7 And I will take away his 'blood out of his mouth,

And his abominations from between his teeth:
But he that remaineth, even he, shall be for our God,
And he shall be as a governor in Judah,

And Ekron as a Jebusite.
8 And I will encamp about mine house because of the army,

Because of him that passeth by,
And because of him that returneth:
And no oppressor shall pass through them any more :

For now have I seen with mine eyes.
9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion;

Shout, o daughter of Jerusalem : behold, thy King cometh unto thee :
He is just, and 2 having salvation;
Lowly, and riding upon an ass,

And upon a colt the foal of an ass.
10 And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim,

And the horse from Jerusalem,
And the battle-bow shall be cut off :
And he shall speak peace unto the heathen:
And his dominion shall be from sea even to sea,
And from the river even to the ends of the earth.

As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant
I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit


Wherein is no water. 12 Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope :

Even to-day do I declare that I will render double unto thee; 13 When I have bent Judah for me,

Filled the bow with Ephraim,
And raised up thy sons, o Zion,
Against thy sons, O Greece,

And made thee as the sword of a mighty man. 14 And the LORD shall be seen over them,

And his arrow shall go forth as the lightning:
And the Lord God shall blow the trumpet,

And shall go with whirlwinds of the south. 15 The Lord of hosts shall defend them;

And they shall devour, and 4 subdue with sling stones;
And they shall drink, and make a noise as through wine;
And they 5 shall be filled like bowls,

And as the corners of the altar.
16 And the LORD their God shall save them in that day

As the flock of his people :
For they shall be as the stones of a crown,
Lifted up as an ensign upon his land.

17 For how great is his goodness, and how great is his beauty!

Corn shall make the young men 'cheerful,

And new wine the maids.
10 Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain;

So the Lord shall make a bright clouds,
And give them showers of rain,

To every one grass in the field.
2 For the's idols hare spoken vanity,

And the diviners have seen a lie,
And have told false dreams; they comfort in vain:
Therefore they went their way as a flock,

They 4 were troubled, because there was no shepherd. 3 Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds,

And I "punished the goats:
For the Lord of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah,

And hath made them as his goodly horse in the battle. 4 Out of him came forth the corner,

Out of him the nail,
Out of him the battle-bow,

Out of him every oppressor together. 5 And they shall be as mighty men,

Which tread down their enemies in the mire of the streets in the battle:
And they shall fight, because the Lord is with them,

And the riders on horses shall be confounded. 6 And I will strengthen the house of Judah,

And I will save the house of Joseph,
And I will bring them again to place them;
For I have mercy upon them:
And they shall be as though I had not cast them off:

For I am the Lord their God, and will hear them. 7 And they of Ephraim shall be like a mighty man,

And their heart shall rejoice as through wine:
Yea, their children shall see it, and be glad ;

Their heart shall rejoice in the LORD. 8 I will hiss for them, and gather them;

For I have redeemed them:

And they shall increase as they have increased. 9 And I will sow them among the people:

And they shall remember me in far countries;

And they shall live with their children, and turn again. 10 I will bring them again also out of the land of Egypt,

And gather them out of Assyria;
And I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon ;

And place shall not be found for them.
11 And he shall pass through the sea with affliction,

And shall smite the waves in the sea,
And all the deeps of the river shall dry up:
And the pride of Assyria shall be brought down,

And the sceptre of Egypt shall depart away. 12 And I will strengthen them in the LORD;

And they shall walk up and down in his name, saith the LORD. 11

That the fire may devour thy cedars.

3 There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds ;

For their glory is spoiled:
A voice of the roaring of young lions ;
For the pride of Jordan is spoiled.

Thus saith the LORD my God;
Feed the flock of the slaughter;
5 Whose possessors slay them,

And hold themselves not guilty:
And they that sell them say,
Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich:

And their own shepherds pity them not.
6 For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD:

But, lo, I will deliver the men every one
Into his neighbour's hand, and into the hand of his king:
And they shall smite the land,

And out of their hand I will not deliver them. 7 And I will feed the flock of slaughter, 2 even you, O poor of the flock. And

I took unto me two staves; the one I called Beauty, and the other I called 8 9 Bands; and I fed the flock. Three shepherds also I cut off in one month; and 9 my soul 4 lothed them, and their soul also abhorred me. Then said I,

I will not feed you :
That that dieth-let it die;
And that that is to be cut off-let it be cut off;

And let the rest eat every one the flesh 5 of another. 10 And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break 11 my covenant which I had made with all the people. And it was broken in that

day: and so the poor of the flock that waited upon me knew that it was the 12 word of the LORD. And I said unto them, 7 If ye ihink good, give me my price; 13 and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. And

the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter :-a goodly price that I was prized at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the

potter in the house of the Lord. 14 Then I cut asunder mine other staff, even 8 Bands, that I might break the

brotherhood between Judah and Israel. 15 And the Lord said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a

foolish shepherd.
16 For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land,

Which shall not visit those that be cut off,
Neither shall seek the young one,
Nor heal that that is broken,
Nor 10 feed that that standeth still :
But he shall eat the flesh of the fat,

And tear their claws in pieces.
17 Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock !

The sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye:
His arm shall be clean dried up,

And his right eye shall be utterly darkened. 12 THE burden of the word of the

Lord for Israel, Saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, And layeth the foundation of the earth,

And formeth the spirit of man within him.

Judah shall he be which
shall be in siege against

A burdensome stone for all people :
All that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces,

Though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. 4 In that day, saith the LORD,

I will smite every horse with astonishment,
And his rider with madness:
And I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah,

And will smite every horse of the people with blindness.
5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart,

1 The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength

In the Lord of hosts their God.
6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah

Like an hearth of fire among the wood,
And like a torch of fire in a sheaf;
And they shall devour all the people round about,
On the right hand and on the left:
And Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place,

Even in Jerusalem.
7 The Lord also shall save the tents of Judah first,

That the glory of the house of David
And the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem

Do not magnify themselves against Judah. 8 In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem;

And he that is 23 feeble among them at that day shall be as David;
And the house of David shall be as God,

As the angel of the Lord before them. 9 And it shall come to pass in that day,

That I will seek to destroy all the nations

That come against Jerusalem.
10 And I will pour upon the house of David,

And upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
The spirit of grace and of supplications:
And they shall look upon me whom they have pierced,
And they shall mourn for him,
As one mourneth for his only son,
And shall be in bitterness for him,

As one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. 11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem,

As the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon. 12 And the land shall mourn, - every family apart;

The family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart;

The family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart; 13 The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart;

The family 5 of Shimei apart, and their wives apart; 14 All the families that remain,

Every family apart, and their wives apart. 13 In that day there shall be a fountain opened

To the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem

For sin and for buncleanness.
2 'And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts,

That I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land,
And they shall no more be remembered :
And also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit

To pass out of the land.
3 And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy,

Then his father and his mother that begat him
Shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live;
For thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD :
And his father and his mother that begat him
Shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.

And it shall come to pass in that day,
That the prophets shall be ashamed
Every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied ;

Neither shall they wear 1 a rough garment a to deceive:
5 But he shall say, 'I am no prophet, I am an husbandman;

For man taught me to keep cattle from my youth. 6 And one shall say unto him,

What are these wounds in thine hands?
Then he shall answer,

Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends. 7 AWAKE, O sword, against my shepherd,

And against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts :
Smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered :

And I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. 8 And it shall come to pass,

That in all the land, saith the LORD,
Two parts therein shall be cut off and die;

But the third shall be left therein.
9 And I will bring the third part through the fire,

And will refine them as silver is refined,
And will try them as gold is tried :
They shall call on my name, and I will hear them :
I will say, It is my people :

And they shall say, The Lord is my God. 14 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh,

And thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle;

And the city shall be taken,
And the houses rifled, and the women ravished;
And half of the city shall go forth into captivity,

And the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then shall the LORD go forth,

And fight against those nations,

As when he fought in the day of battle. 4 And his feet shall stand in that day

Upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east,
And the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof
Toward the east and toward the west,
And there shall be a very great valley;
And half of the mountain shall remove toward the north,

And half of it toward the south.
5 And ye shall flee to the valley of Sthe mountains;

- For the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal:
Yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake
In the days of Uzziah king of Judah:
And the Lord my God shall come,

And all the saints with thee.
6 And it shall come to pass in that day,

5 That the light shall not be clear, nor 7 dark : 7 But sit shall be one day

Which shall be known to the LORD,
Not day, nor night :

But it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. 8 And it shall be in that day,

That living waters shall go out from Jerusalem ;
Half of them toward the former sea,
And half of them toward the hinder sea :
In summer and in winter shall it be.
