1 But it shall be in the latter days, that the mountain of the house of Jehovah shall be
established on the top of the mountains; and it shall be lifted up above the hills; and
peoples shall flow to it.
2 And many nations shall come and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of
Jehovah, and to the house of the God of Jacob. And He will teach us His ways, and we
will walk in His paths. For the Law shall go forth out of Zion, and the Word of Jehovah
3 And He shall judge between many peoples, and will decide for strong nations afar off.
And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, nor shall they learn war any more.
4 But they shall each one sit under his vine and under his fig tree, and there shall be no
cause for trembling. For the mouth of Jehovah of Hosts has spoken.
5 For all the peoples walk, each one in the name of his god; but we will walk in the name
of Jehovah our God forever and ever.
6 In that day I will gather the lame, declares Jehovah, and I will gather the banished, and
the ones I have afflicted.
7 And I will establish the lame in a place as a remnant, and her who was cast off into a
strong nation. And Jehovah shall reign over them in Mount Zion from now on, even
8 And you, O tower of the flock, the stronghold of the daughter of Zion, it shall come to
you. And the rule of the chief ones shall come, the kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.
9 Now why do you cry aloud with an outcry? Is there no king among you? Has your
adviser perished? For pangs have seized you like one in travail.
10 Writhe in pain and bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like one giving birth. For now you
shall go out from the city, and you shall live in the field. And you shall go to Babylon.
There you shall be delivered. There Jehovah shall redeem you from the hand of your
11 Now also many nations are gathered against you, saying, Let her be defiled, and let our
eyes look upon Zion.
12 But they do not know the purposes of Jehovah, nor do they understand His counsel.
For He will gather them like the sheaves to the threshing floor.
13 Rise up and thresh, O daughter of Zion, for I will make your horn iron, and I will make your hooves bronze, and you shall crush many peoples. And I will consecrate their gain to Jehovah, and their wealth to the Lord of the whole earth.
