I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim and the horse from Jerusalem. The bow of war will be removed, and He will proclaim peace to the nations. His dominion will extend from sea to sea, from the Euphrates River to the ends of the earth.a11
As for you, because of the blood of your covenant,b I will release your prisoners from the waterless cistern.c12
Return to a stronghold, you prisoners who have hope; today I declare that I will restore double to you.d13
For I will bend Judah [as My bow]; I will fill that bow with Ephraim. I will rouse your sons, Zion, against your sons, Greece.e I will make you like a warrior's sword.
