3 “For look! in those days and in that time,
When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem,+
2 I will also gather together all the nations
I will enter into judgment with them there+
In behalf of my people and my inheritance Israel,
For they scattered them among the nations,
And they divided up my land among themselves.+
They would trade a boy to hire a prostitute
And sell a girl for wine to drink.
4 Also, what do you have against me,
O Tyre and Siʹdon and all the regions of Phi·lisʹti·a?
Are you repaying me for something?
If you are repaying me,
I will swiftly, speedily bring your repayment on your heads.+
And you have brought my finest treasures into your temples;
In order to remove them far from their territory;
And I will bring your repayment on your heads.
And they will sell them to the men of Sheʹba, to a nation far away;
For Jehovah himself has spoken it.
‘Prepare for* war! Stir up the mighty men!
Let all the soldiers draw near, let them advance!+
Let the weak one say: “I am powerful.”
To that place, O Jehovah, bring down your powerful ones.*
For there I will sit in order to judge all the surrounding nations.+
13 Thrust in a sickle, for the harvest is ripe.
Come down and tread, for the winepress is full.+
The vats overflow, for their badness is abundant.
15 Sun and moon will become dark,
And the stars will lose their brightness.
16 And Jehovah will roar out of Zion,
Out of Jerusalem he will raise his voice.
And heaven and earth will rock;
But Jehovah will be a refuge for his people,+
A fortress for the people of Israel.
The hills will flow with milk,
And the streams of Judah will all flow with water.
Out of the house of Jehovah a spring will flow,+
And it will irrigate the Valley* of the Acacia Trees.
And Eʹdom will be a desolate wilderness,+
Because of the violence done to the people of Judah,+
In whose land they shed innocent blood.+
