I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim And the horse from Jerusalem ; And the bow of war will be cut off. And He will speak peace to the nations ; And His dominion will be from sea to sea, And from the River to the ends of the earth.
"My anger is kindled against the shepherds, And I will punish the male goats ; For the LORD of hosts has visited His flock, the house of Judah, And will make them like His majestic horse in battle.
"From them will come the cornerstone, From them the tent peg, From them the bow of battle, From them every ruler, all of them together.
"They will be as mighty men, Treading down the enemy in the mire of the streets in battle ; And they will fight, for the LORD will be with them; And the riders on horses will be put to shame.
For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled , but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city.
