I will take away the chariots from Ephraim and the war-horses from Jerusalem, and the battle bow will be broken.1 He will proclaim peace2 to the nations. His rule will extend from sea to sea and from the Rivera to the ends of the earth.b311
As for you, because of the blood of my covenant4 with you, I will free your prisoners5 from the waterless pit.612
Return to your fortress,7 O prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice8 as much to you.
I will bend Judah as I bend my bow9 and fill it with Ephraim.10 I will rouse your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece,11 and make you like a warrior's sword.12
