12 aThe burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord,
||When they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
jAll that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces,
kThough all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
4 hIn that day, saith the Lord,
And nI will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah,
5 And othe governors of Judah shall say in their heart,
||The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength
In the Lord of hosts their God.
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:
That the glory of the house of David
And the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem
Do not magnify themselves against Judah.
And the house of David shall be as God,
As vthe angel of the Lord before them.
9 And it shall come to pass hin that day,
That I will seek wto destroy all the nations
That come against Jerusalem.
10 And xI will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
The spirit of grace and of ysupplications:
And shall be cin bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
The family of the house of mNathan apart, and their wives apart;
Every family apart, and their wives apart.
