9 *aThe burden of the word of the Lord in the land of bHadrach,
And cDamascus shall be the rest thereof:
When dthe eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel, shall be toward the Lord.
2 And eHamath also shall border thereby;
fgTyrus, and fhZidon, though iit be very wise.
3 And Tyrus did build herself ka strong hold,
And lheaped up silver as the dust,
And mfine gold nas the mire of the streets.
4 Behold, the Lord will ocast her out,
And he will smite pher power in the sea;
And qshe shall be devoured with fire.
5 rAshkelon shall see it, and fear;
rGaza also shall see it, and be very sorrowful,
And rEkron; for her expectation rrshall be ashamed;
And the king shall perish from Gaza,
And Ashkelon shall not be inhabited.
6 And sa bastard shall dwell in tAshdod,
And I will cut off the pride of tthe Philistines.
7 And I will take away uhis †blood out of his mouth,
And his abominations from between his teeth:
But he that remaineth, even he, shall be for our God,
And he shall be as va governor in Judah,
And wEkron as xa Jebusite.
8 And yI will encamp about mine house because of the army,
Because of zhim that passeth by, and because of zhim that returneth:
And ano boppressor shall pass through them any more:
For now chave I seen with mine eyes.
9 dRejoice greatly, O edaughter of Zion;
eShout, O daughter of Jerusalem:
fBehold, gthy King cometh unto thee:
hHe is just, and ||having salvation;
fiLowly, and kriding upon an ass,
fAnd upon a colt the foal of an ass.
10 And lI will cut off the chariot from Ephraim,
And lmthe horse from Jerusalem,
And the battle bow shall be cut off:
And nhe shall speak opeace unto the heathen:
pAnd his dominion shall be qfrom sea even to sea,
pAnd from the river even to rthe ends of the earth.
11 As for thee also, ||by sthe blood of thy covenant
I thave sent forth thy tuprisoners out of vthe pit wherein is no water.
12 Turn you to the strong hold, tye prisoners wof hope:
xEven to day do I declare that I will render ydouble unto thee;
13 yyWhen I have bent Judah for me, zfilled the bow with Ephraim,
And raised up thy sons, O Zion, against athy sons, bO Greece,
And made thee as the sword of a mighty man.
14 And the Lord shall be seen over them,
And chis arrow shall go forth as dthe lightning:
And ethe Lord God shall blow the trumpet,
And shall go fwith whirlwinds of gthe south.
15 The Lord of hosts hshall defend them; and ithey shall devour,
And ||subdue with sling stones;
And they shall drink, and kmake a noise as through wine;
And they ||shall be filled like lbowls, and as mthe corners of the altar.
16 And the Lord their God shall save them nin that day as othe flock of his people:
For they shall be as pthe stones of a crown, qlifted up as an ensign upon his land.
17 For rhow great is shis goodness, and how great is this beauty!
suCorn shall make the young men ||cheerful, and swnew wine the maids.
