The LORD proclaims: Though once they were a healthy and numerous force, they have been cut off and have disappeared. I have afflicted you; I won't afflict you further, Zion.
Now I will break off his yoke from you and tear off your chains.
Look, on the mountains: the feet of a messenger who announces peace! Celebrate your festivals, Judah! Fulfill your solemn promises! The worthless one will never again invade you; he has been completely cut off.
