4 aBut in the last days it shall come to pass,
That the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains,
And it shall be exalted above the hills;
And people shall flow unto it.
Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
And to the house of the God of Jacob;
And he will teach us of his ways,
And we will walk in his paths:
For the law shall go forth of Zion,
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
3 And bhe shall judge among many people,
And rebuke cstrong nations afar off;
And they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
And their spears into ||pruninghooks:
Nation shall not lift up a sword against nation,
Neither shall they learn war any more.
4 dBut they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree;
eAnd none shall make them afraid:
fFor the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it.
5 For gall people will walk every one in the name of his god,
And hwe will walk in the name of the Lord our God for ever and ever.
And her that I have afflicted;
And her that was cast far off ca strong nation:
rFrom henceforth, even for ever.
tThe strong hold of the daughter of Zion,
Unto thee shall it come, even uthe first dominion;
The kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.
9 Now why dost thou cry out valoud?
wIs there no king in thee?
xIs thy counseller perished?
For ypangs have taken thee as a woman in travail.
For now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field,
cThere the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies.
11 Now also ccmany nations are gathered against thee,
12 But fthey know not the thoughts of the Lord,
Neither understand they his counsel:
For ghe shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.
For I will make jthine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass:
