Hea will cut off the chariot from Ephraim and the warhorse from Jerusalem. The bow used in battle will be cut off; he will speak peace to the nations. His rule will stretch from sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth.
Moreover,b by the blood of your covenant, I will release your prisoners from the waterless pit.

Indeed, I myself will bend Judah as a bow; I will fill it with Ephraim. Zion, I will rouse your sons against your sons. Greece, I will make you like a warrior's sword.
