Have I gathered all the earth;
And there was none that moved the wing,

Or that opened the mouth, or chirped. 15 Should the axe boast itself against him that

heweth therewith? Should the saw magnify itself against him

that moveth it? As if a rod should move them that lift it up, Or as if a staff should lift up him that is not

wood. 16 Therefore will the Lord, the LORD of hosts,

Send among his fat ones leanness;
And under his glory there shall be kindled

A burning like the burning of fire. 17 And the light of Israel shall be for a fire,

And his Holy One for a flame;
And it shall burn and devour his thorns

And his briers in one day. 18 And the glory of his forest and of his fruit

ful field, He will consume both soul and body; And it shall be as when a sick man wasteth

away. 19 And the remnant of the trees of his forest

shall be few,
That a child may write them down.
20 And it shall come to pass in that day,

That the remnant of Israel,
And they that are escaped of the house of

Shall no more again stay upon him that

smote them;
But shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One

of Israel, in truth,

21 A remnant shall return, even the remnant

of Jacob, Unto God the Mighty. 22 For though thy people, O Israel, be as the

sand of the sea, Only a remnant of them shall return; An extermination is determined, overflowing

with righteousness. 23 For an extermination wholly determined Shall the Lord, the God of hosts, make in

the midst of all the earth.

24 Therefore thus saith the Lord, the GOD of hosts: O My people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of Asshur, though he smite thee with the rod, and lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt. 25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall be accomplished, and Mine anger shall be to their destruction. 26 And the LORD of hosts shall stir up against him a scourge, as in the slaughter of Midian at the Rock of Oreb; and as His rod was over the sea, so shall He lift it up after the manner of Egypt. 27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that His burden shall depart from off thy shoul.

der, And his yoke from off thy neck, And the yoke shall be destroyed by reason of

fatness. 28 He is come to Aiath,

He is passed through Migron;

At Michmas he layeth up his baggage; 29 They are gone over the pass;

They have taken up their lodging at Geba;

Ramah trembleth;

Gibeath-shaul is fled. 30 Cry thou with a shrill voice, O daughter of

Gallim! Hearken, O Laish! O thou poor Anathoth! 31 Madmenah is in mad flight;

The inhabitants of Gebim flee to cover. 32 This very day shall he halt at Nob, Shaking his hand at the mount of the daugh.

The hill of Jerusalem.
33 Behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts,

Shall lop the boughs with terror;
And the high ones of stature shall be hewn

down, And the lofty shall be laid low, 34 And He shall cut down the thickets of the

forest with iron,
And Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one.

of the stock of Jesse, And a twig shall grow forth out of his roots. 2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon

The spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The spirit of counsel and might,
The spirit of knowledge and of the fear of

the LORD. 3 And his delight shall be in the fear of the

And he shall not judge after the sight of his


Neither decide after the hearing of his ears; 4 But with righteousness shall he judge the

poor, And decide with equity for the meek of the

land; And he shall smite the land with the rod of

his mouth, And with the breath of his lips shall he slay

the wicked. 5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his

loins, And faithfulness the girdle of his reins. 6 And the wolf shall dwell with the lamb, And the leopard shall lie down with the

kid; And the calf and the young lion and the

fatling together; And a little child shall lead them. 7 And the cow and the bear shall feed;

Their young ones shall lie down together;

And the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole

of the asp,

And the weaned child shall put his hand on

the basilisk's den.

In all My holy mountain;
For the earth shall be full of the knowledge

of the LORD,
As the waters cover the sea.

10 And it shall come to pass in that day, That the root of Jesse, that standeth for an

ensign of the peoples,

Unto him shall the nations seek;
And his resting-place shall be glorious.

11 And it shall come to pass in that day, That the Lord will set His hand again the

second time
To recover the remnant of His people,
That shall remain from Assyria, and from

And from Pathros, and from Cush, and from

And from Shinar, and from Hamath, and

from the islands of the sea. 12 And He will set up an ensign for the

nations, And will assemble the dispersed of Israel, And gather together the scattered of Judah

From the four corners of the earth. 13. The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, And they that harass Judah shall be cut off; Ephraim shall not envy Judah,

And Judah shall not vex Ephraim. 14 And they shall fly down upon the shoulder

of the Philistines on the west; Together shall they spoil the children of the

east; They shall put forth their hand upon Edom

and Moab; And the children of Ammon shall obey them. 15 And the LORD will utterly destroy the tongue

of the Egyptian sea;
And with His scorching wind will He shake

His hand over the River,
And will smite it into seven streams,
And cause men to march over dry-shod.
