hIn that day will I make othe governors of Judah plike an hearth of fire among the wood,

And like a torch of fire in a sheaf;

And qthey shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left:

And rJerusalem shall be inhabited again sin her own place, even in Jerusalem.

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.

hIn that day shall the Lord tdefend the inhabitants of Jerusalem;

And uhe that is ||feeble among them hat that day shall be as David;

And the house of David shall be as God,

As vthe angel of the Lord before them.

And it shall come to pass hin that day,

That I will seek wto destroy all the nations

That come against Jerusalem.
