This is a message about Israel from the Lord, the Lord who spread out the skies, created the earth, and gave life to man. He says,
"I will make Jerusalem like a cup of wine; the nations around her will drink and stagger like drunks. And when they besiege Jerusalem, the cities of the rest of Judah will also be besieged.
But when that time comes, I will make Jerusalem like a heavy stone - any nation that tries to lift it will be hurt. All the nations of the world will join forces to attack her.
At that time I will terrify all their horses and make all their riders go crazy. I will watch over the people of Judah, but I will make the horses of their enemies blind.
Then the clans of Judah will say to themselves, "The Lord God Almighty gives strength to his people who live in Jerusalem.'
