3 For, behold, ain those days, and in that time,
2 cI will also gather all nations,
And will bring them down dinto the valley of Jehoshaphat,
Whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
3 And gthey have cast lots for my people;
And have given a boy for an harlot,
And sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.
Will ye render me a recompence?
And if ye recompense me,
5 Because nye have taken my silver and my gold,
And have carried into your temples my goodly †pleasant things:
That ye might remove them far from their border.
And mwill return your recompence upon your own head:
8 And qI will sell your sons and your daughters
Into the hand of the children of Judah,
For the Lord hath spoken it.
†Prepare war, wake up the mighty men,
Let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:
10 tBeat your plowshares into swords,
uLet the weak say, I am strong.
12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up dto the valley of Jehoshaphat:
For there will I sit xto judge all the heathen round about.
For their wickedness is great.
15 iThe sun and the moon shall be darkened,
iAnd the stars shall withdraw their shining.
16 jThe Lord also shall roar out of Zion,
And ithe heavens and the earth shall shake:
But the Lord will be the †hope of his people,
And lthe strength of the children of Israel.
17 mSo shall ye know that I am the Lord your God
Then shall Jerusalem be †holy,
And there shall qno strangers pass through her any more.
18 And it shall come to pass rin that day,
And wa fountain shall come forth of the house of the Lord,
And shall water the valley of xShittim.
19 yEgypt shall be a desolation,
For bthe violence against the children of Judah,
Because they have shed innocent blood in their land.
And Jerusalem from generation to generation.
21 For dI will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed:
