The burden of the word of the LORD in the land of Hadrach, and Damascus [shall be] the rest thereof: when the eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel, [shall be] toward the LORD.
And Hamath also shall border4 thereby; Tyrus, and Zidon, though it be very wise.1
And Tyrus did build4 herself a strong hold, and heaped up4 silver as the dust, and fine gold as the mire of the streets.
Behold, the Lord will cast her out,55 and he will smite52 her power in the sea; and she shall be devoured11 with fire.
Ashkelon shall see4 [it], and fear;4 Gaza also [shall see it], and be very sorrowful,4 and Ekron; for her expectation shall be ashamed;52 and the king shall perish1 from Gaza, and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited.4
And a bastard shall dwell1 in Ashdod, and I will cut off52 the pride of the Philistines.
And I will take away52 his blood out of his mouth, and his abominations from between his teeth: but he that remaineth,8 even he, [shall be] for our God, and he shall be as a governor in Judah, and Ekron as a Jebusite.
And I will encamp1 about mine house because of the army, because of him that passeth by,6 and because of him that returneth:6 and no oppressor6 shall pass4 through them any more: for now have I seen1 with mine eyes.
Rejoice3 greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout,54 O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh4 unto thee: he [is] just, and having salvation;12 lowly, and riding6 upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
And I will cut off52 the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off:8 and he shall speak14 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 forth14 thy prisoners out of the pit wherein [is] no water.
Turn3 you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare56 [that] I will render55 double unto thee;
When I have bent1 Judah for me, filled14 the bow with Ephraim, and raised up31 thy sons, O Zion, against thy sons, O Greece, and made1 thee as the sword of a mighty man.
And the LORD shall be seen11 over them, and his arrow shall go forth1 as the lightning: and the Lord GOD shall blow4 the trumpet, and shall go1 with whirlwinds of the south.
The LORD of hosts shall defend55 them; and they shall devour,1 and subdue1 with sling stones; and they shall drink,1 [and] make a noise1 as through wine; and they shall be filled1 like bowls, [and] as the corners of the altar.
And the LORD their God shall save52 them in that day as the flock of his people: for they [shall be as] the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign109 upon his land.
For how great [is] his goodness, and how great [is] his beauty! corn shall make the young men cheerful,41 and new wine the maids.
