4 Now ait shall come to pass in the latter days
That the mountain of the Lord’s house
Shall be established on the top of the mountains,
And shall be exalted above the hills;
And peoples shall flow to it.
“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
He will teach us His ways,
And we shall walk in His paths.”
For out of Zion the law shall go forth,
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
And rebuke strong nations afar off;
They shall beat their swords into bplowshares,
And their spears into 1pruning hooks;
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
cNeither shall they learn war anymore.
4 dBut everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree,
And no one shall make them afraid;
For the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken.
But ewe will walk in the name of the Lord our God
Forever and ever.
6 “In that day,” says the Lord,
f“I will assemble the lame,
gI will gather the outcast
And those whom I have afflicted;
7 I will make the lame ha remnant,
And the outcast a strong nation;
So the Lord iwill reign over them in Mount Zion
From now on, even forever.
The stronghold of the daughter of Zion,
To you shall it come,
Even the former dominion shall come,
The kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.”
jIs there no king in your midst?
Has your counselor perished?
O daughter of Zion,
Like a woman in birth pangs.
For now you shall go forth from the city,
You shall dwell in the field,
And to lBabylon you shall go.
There you shall be delivered;
From the hand of your enemies.
11 oNow also many nations have gathered against you,
Who say, “Let her be defiled,
And let our eye plook upon Zion.”
12 But they do not know qthe thoughts of the Lord,
Nor do they understand His counsel;
For He will gather them rlike sheaves to the threshing floor.
For I will make your horn iron,
And I will make your hooves bronze;
You shall ubeat in pieces many peoples;
vI will consecrate their gain to the Lord,
And their substance to wthe Lord of the whole earth.”
