and the inhabitants of one city will go to another and say, 'Let us go at once to entreat7 the LORD and seek8 the LORD Almighty. I myself am going.'
And many peoples and powerful nations will come to Jerusalem to seek the LORD Almighty and to entreat him."923
This is what the LORD Almighty says: "In those days ten people from all languages and nations will take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, 'Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you.' "10
