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,
Behold, the Lord will cast her oul,
And she shall be devoured with fire. 5 Ashkelon shall see it, and fear;
Gaza also shall see it, and be very sorrowful,
And Ashkelon shall not be inhabited. 6 And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod,
And I will cut off the pride of the Philistines.
And his abominations from between his teeth:
And Ekron as a Jebusite.
Because of him that passeth by,
For now have I seen with mine eyes.
Shout, o daughter of Jerusalem : behold, thy King cometh unto thee :
And upon a colt the foal of an ass.
And the horse from Jerusalem,
As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant
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 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 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 as the corners of the altar.
As the flock of his people :

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.
So the Lord shall make a bright clouds,
To every one grass in the field.
And the diviners have seen a lie,
They 4 were troubled, because there was no shepherd. 3 Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds,
And I "punished the goats:
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 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 the riders on horses shall be confounded. 6 And I will strengthen the house of Judah,
And I will save the house of Joseph,
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:
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 place shall not be found for them.
And shall smite the waves in the sea,
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

3 There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds ;
For their glory is spoiled:
Thus saith the LORD my God;
And hold themselves not guilty:
And their own shepherds pity them not.
But, lo, I will deliver the men every one
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 :
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

And tear their claws in pieces.
The sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye:
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.

Both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem

A burdensome stone for all people :
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 will smite every horse of the people with blindness.
1 The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength
In the Lord of hosts their God.
Like an hearth of fire among the wood,
Even in Jerusalem.
That the glory of the house of David
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;
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.
And upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
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.

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 :
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,
But the third shall be left therein.
And will refine them as silver is refined,
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.
And the city shall be taken,
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 half of it toward the south.
